Direct Digital Charging Dock for iPhone 5
Dock your iPhone 5, iPod touch (5G), or iPod nano (7G) via the Lightning Connector and recharge the device while
you listen. The receiver automatically detects your device, selects dock input, and allows you to use the system remote
to quickly navigate to your desired track. Audio signals are transported in pure digital form—bypassing the docked
device’s analog conversion and gain circuits—for noticeably clearer, deeper, and more realistic sound.

Connect, Charge, and Play via USB
Users of legacy iPhone and iPod models can link up in moments via the front-panel charging USB port, which also
enables direct-digital audio transfer on these devices. If your smartphone or tablet features a mini-USB port, you can
quickly access the MP3 files stored on the device as well. You can also plug in a flash memory drive and use the system
remote to select an MP3 library—no hassle, and no fuss.

Clean and Efficient Digital Amplifier
As well as being more energy-efficient than Class AB designs, digital amplifiers are capable of producing remarkably clean, detailed sound. Onkyo’s low-noise circuit topology reduces distortion across a wide frequency bandwidth, resolving new layers of depth and detail in your favorite recordings.

Compact and Solid Two-Way Speakers
The CS-255 includes a pair of two-way bass-reflex-type speakers that incorporate a 10 cm woofer and a 2 cm
balanced-dome tweeter. The cabinets feature stylish rounded edges and a front-to-rear taper that helps reduce internal
standing waves—an unwanted acoustic resonance that can muddy the sound. Compact in size yet surprisingly robust,
these magnetically shielded speakers fit comfortably and sound great almost anywhere you choose to place them.

Super Bass Function
Sometimes the music calls for a little extra bass punch. The two-mode Super Bass function on the CS-255 gives a
welcome boost to the low-frequency band, adding just the right amount of heft to bass guitar and kick drum without
sounding distorted, harsh, or boomy.

Smooth Front-Loading CD Player
While there is no shortage of weird and wonderful CD-loading designs out there, the novelty wears off after
yet another scratched disc. The traditional front-loading CD player remains the simplest and safest way to enjoy your
disc-based media. The CS-255 incorporates a smooth frontloading mechanism, while track- or album-repeat modes—
plus a random playback option—offer greater flexibility. And it’ll even play your homemade mixes and MP3-encoded
compilation discs without any bother.

FM Tuner with 30-Station Preset
Browse up to 30 preset radio stations—complete with station information in those areas supporting RDS
broadcasts—at the touch of a button. Once you’ve got your favorites programmed in, you’ll never be short of something
to listen to.
