Onkyo Mini System adds DAB+ Tuner and potent new amplifier

Press Release dated: 12 Jun 2012

Global home audio innovator Onkyo is delighted to introduce its new CS-555DAB Hi-Fi Mini System, a quality personal audio player loaded with high-end technology but offered at an eminently affordable price.

Onkyo excels at producing solid, stylish, well-made products, and that commitment to quality is evident here. Available in a choice of black or silver finishes, this classy mini system (also available in a non-DAB+ version called simply the CS-555) instantly adds to the ambience of any bedroom, den, or office.

Offering a wide selection of audio inputs, as well as the requisite top-mounted iPod/iPhone dock, front-loading CD tray, and FM tuner, the receiver features a USB port to accept flash-memory devices. Playback is easily controlled using the system remote.

Audio enthusiasts can enjoy high-resolution playback, with a 96 kHz/24-bit optical or coaxial input directing the signal to the receiver’s 192 kHz/24-bit DAC. These inputs offer a convenient way to connect a PC and enjoy iTunes libraries, online audio streams, or movie downloads with immersive sound.

Three analogue sockets enable connection of practically any electronic audio device, but the coolest feature here is the DAB/DAB+ tuner. With a big 40-station preset memory, the digital radio function opens up a diverse world of programming entertainment for the user to enjoy. Unlike the old days where users were afraid to touch the dial, changing channels is now a simple matter of pushing a button on the remote.

Naturally, there is also a dedicated subwoofer pre-out should the user wish to add ground-shaking impact to their audio entertainment.

As well as adding a DAB/DAB+ radio tuner to its feature set, the CS-555DAB boosts core audio performance by incorporating the same three-stage amplification technology currently driving Onkyo’s top-shelf A/V receivers and hi-fi separates.

Onkyo’s “inverted” Darlington circuit design uses proprietary technology to amplify the incoming signal in three distinct stages, reducing distortion and faithfully preserving the natural character of the recording.

Just like its high-end siblings, both channels on the CS-555DAB are symmetrically laid out, with short signal paths between amplifier and power supply to reduce interference. This uniformity eliminates errors between channels, cuts noise levels, and improves the unit’s ability to deliver well-separated stereo sound.

Another advance comes in the form of a Phase-Matching Bass Boost system. While most mini systems offer some form of bass enhancement, most are prone to the effects of phase shifting, which can overwhelm mid-range frequencies and muddy the sound. Onkyo’s phase-matching bass solution preserves mid-range clarity - allowing vocals and strings to shine - while maintaining a powerful low-frequency presence at all volumes.

Adding further value to this package is the company’s N-OMF (New Onkyo Micro Fiber) speaker cone. Moulded layers of aramid and lightweight non-woven cotton provide the stiffness for a faster, more accurate response. This durable material combines with a bullet-shaped equalizer to absorb vibrations and enable stunningly precise audio reproduction.

The CS-555DAB CD Hi-Fi Mini System is sure to impress with its clear and powerful performance, and, as with any Onkyo audio product, an intelligent feature set and exceptional reliability will reward the user with many years of faithful service.
