Onkyo’s CS-255 CD Hi-Fi Mini System Plays Nice with iPhone 5
Onkyo's upcoming compact system includes connectivity for Apple's latest smartphone.
June 25, 2013 by Rachel Cericola

Last fall, Onkyo introduced five new audio products. Nestled right in the middle was the CS-355 Colibrino CD/Bluetooth HiFi Mini System. Now, the company is planning another Mini option. The CS-255 CD Hi-Fi Mini System will start shipping before the end of the summer.

Designed to put big audio into a compact space, this component has a CD player, a Lightning charging dock for newer iOS devices, and a USB port. That USB option is perfect for legacy iPhone and iPod models, as well as other smartphones and tablets.

The CS-255 also packs in a digital amplifier to drive a pair of two-way speakers. Onkyo says that the cabinets have a large cone driver, a balanced-dome tweeter, and non-parallel construction with rolled edges to prevent internal standing waves.

Other features include an FM/AM radio with 60 memory presets, a 3.5mm stereo analog input, and a selectable two-mode Super Bass function.

Onkyo will start selling the CS-255 sometime in August, with an MSRP of $299.
