… with a Dock for iPod/iPhone and Stereo Speakers


UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (11/21/11) –Onkyo has introduced a compact home music system with two loudspeakers that is designed to deliver high-quality sound from compact discs, FM/AM radio, and music files stored on an iPod or iPhone. It can also display iPod/iPhone video on an external monitor.

The new Onkyo CS-345 CD Mini System has a built-in dock for iPod/iPhone, a CD player, and an FM/AM radio. The CS-345’s digital power amplifier drives a pair of two-way bass-reflex loudspeakers to high output levels with exceptional sound quality.  With its compact size and modest $299 suggested retail price, this system is ideal for a bedroom, office, kitchen, dorm room, or almost anywhere.

Since Onkyo has always put an emphasis on sound quality, the CS-345’s performance-oriented loudspeakers use a separate dome tweeter for crisp detailed imaging, plus a 4-inch woofer in a bass-reflex enclosure to provide outstanding bass for its size.  Most comparable products only use single speakers that are inadequate to handle the full acoustic range.

The CS-345 uses a highly-efficient digital power amplifier to maintain the wide dynamic range of digital sources. ActiveBass Control automatically adjusts bass content depending on the listening volume, while Super Bass adds gravity to the music.  Because the amplifier and speakers are perfectly matched, the system runs very cool while generating high output and dynamic range with very low distortion.

The CS-345’s built-in dock supports iPod classic, iPod touch (Gen1-4), iPod nano  (Gen2-6), and iPhone, iPhone 3G/3GS/4. It supports recharging and alarm for power-on. The CS-345 has a video output jack to play iPod/iPhone video on TV.  The CD player supports CD, MP3 CD, CD-R, and CD-RW.  Also included are stereo input jacks for playback from other gadgets, such as Android devices. Lastly, there is also a subwoofer output and a front-panel headphone jack.

The Onkyo CS-345 is now available with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $299 US.
