Building on the success of Onkyo’s 2007 award-winning compact audio system, the CS-525 harnesses the same audio design for an audio performance that has been compared to that of quality separate components. Specifically, at the playback stage, you have Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) working to remove noise from the audio signal during the conversion process. And at the amplification stage, Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT) provides the foundation for a listening experience that’s truly musical. Onkyo compact systems are all about continuous improvement. So you’ll find a USB port for connecting to mass storage devices (such as MP3 players) and a new-look, gloss finish that earns the CS-525 some serious style credentials.
With quick and easy NFC pairing for mobiles, Bluetooth technology, and more amp power than ever, the CS-265 brings big and brilliant sound to small spaces. A quality front-loading CD player handles regular audio CD and both MP3- and WAV-encoded discs, while iOS mobile users are treated to an ultra-clear USB connection. Or fill a USB flash drive with MP3s and select tracks using the included remote control. Whichever way you play, you’ll appreciate sound that belies the system’s compact dimensions. A redesigned digital amp and powerful 2-way bookshelf speakers help to uncover hidden details in the mix while projecting music deep and wide in your room. Like it punchy, or with a more laid-back presentation? Proper tone controls and a 2-Mode Super Bass function let you find the right balance. Available in bold and vibrant colors, and looking fantastic with its clean, sleek lines, the CS-265 is easily the coolest and best-sounding mini system we’ve ever made at this price. It feels reassuringly weighty, solid, and well worthy of our 65 years in the Hi-Fi business.
