Onkyo unleash CS-V645 & CS-445 iPod Dock Mini Systems
Onkyo introduced yesterday a new audio-video mini system and stereo mini system. The Audio and Video mini system, the CS-V645, consists of a powerful DVD/CD player with a built-in dock for iPod, a USB connection, high definition HDMI video output and DVD 1080p upscaling, DivX, MP3, WMA and JPEG support as well as a pair of two-way loudspeakers. While the CS-445 stereo music system has a CD player, built-in dock for iPod/iPhone, and slightly less powerful two-way speakers.
The Onkyo CS-V645 DVD/CD Mini System plays a wide range of audio and video formats from DVDs, CDs, iPod, and USB. In addition to standard DVD and CD playback, it supports MP3, WMA, JPEG, and DivX file formats. Video programs are upscaled to 1080p resolution for output to a high definition video display over an HDMI connection. The dock for iPod is located on the top of the receiver, and the USB jack is on the front panel for easy access for flash drives and cable-connected systems.
The Onkyo CS-445 CD mini system plays CD’s CD-R and CD-RW media with standard CD-audio, MP3, and WMA files, and the top-panel dock for iPod/iPhone dramatically increases the available music sources.
Both systems have powerful 40-watt stereo amplifier sections and a pair of high-performance two-way bass-reflex loudspeakers with 1-inch soft dome tweeters and the company’s signature OMF (Onkyo Micro Fiber) woofer cones. The DVD receiver has a 20-preset FM tuner, the CD receiver has an AM/FM tuner with 40 presets, and both models include a full-function remote control.
The Onkyo CS-V645 will be available in early December with a suggested retail price of $399. The Onkyo CS-445 will reach dealers in early November with a suggested retail price of $329.
