Onkyo have just announced their latest mini Hi-Fi system, the CS-2555DAB. Reasonably priced, it’s one of the rare mini Hi-Fi systems to offer certified connectivity with Apple’s lightning connection-equipped iPhone 5 smartphone.
Packaged with a pair of two-way speakers (each housing 10cm cone drivers and a 2cm balanced-dome tweeter), they share a design sensibility usually reserved for premium speakers, helping them to avoid distorting even at loud volumes.
As well as offering the Lightning dock connection on top, USB input for older Apple devices or flash drive MP3 and AAC playback is supported, as well as popping in a 3.5mm jack connection for the majority of other MP3 playing smartphones and portable music players.
Rounding off the feature list is DAB/FM radio functionality, with 30 preset FM stations available and 40 memory settings for the DAB.
Affordable at £249, the iPhone 5-compatible system will begin shipping from July.
