CD Hi-Fi Mini System
Premium Audio Technology in a Versatile System
Onkyo’s proven Wide Range Amplifier Technology concept—along with upgraded Three-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry and VLSC™ noise-canceling technology—lies at the very heart of Onkyo’s premium hi-fi separates range. The good news is that this same technology is now powering selected compact models such as this one. Combined with the symmetrical layout of the left and right channels and an audiophile-grade 192 kHz/24-bit DAC, distortion is all but eliminated and your music is brought to life. Hear your cherished albums played back with the sort of depth and clarity you might expect from a high-end system. With the CS-555DAB, you can spin CDs or explore the world of digital radio, plug in an iPod or flash drive to the USB port, or enjoy the iTunes library on your PC via 96 kHz/24-bit digital inputs. Our latest bookshelf loudspeakers feature N-OMF cotton and aramid laminate cones with center-mounted bullet equalizers to minimize vibration. These speakers smoothly handle phase-matched and boosted bass without obscuring the m id-range frequencies. Robust construction and a quality finish reflect the premium audio technology inside, all in system everybody can afford.

WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology) for Naturally Vivid Sound
Onkyo developed the WRAT suite of technologies to improve the clarity and character of amplified audio. The technologies work to reduce noise across the frequency range, guaranteeing a clear and natural sound. It achieves this by employing a low negative feedback amplifier design, preserving the energy and life contained within the recording; using closed ground-loops to cancel unwanted noise from individual circuits; and by enabling high current flows to cancel reflex energy from the speakers.
Find Your New Favorite Station
Digital radio is one of the best sources of free, high quality home entertainment. Whether you like music, talkback, comedy, or current affairs, the DAB/DAB+ function included on this mini system opens up a diverse world of programming to browse and enjoy. Unlike the old days where you’d be afraid to touch the dial in case you lost your original station, changing channels is now a matter of pushing a button and selecting from the 40-preset memory. Furthermore, digital radio delivers sound quality that’s as good—and in most cases, better—than traditional FM broadcasts, while being less susceptible to environmental interference.
Front-Panel USB Port for iPod/iPhone or Flash Memory Devices
The CS-555DAB’s front-panel USB port gives access to MP3 and AAC audio files stored iPod and iPhone. You can also load up a flash memory drive with these files types—along with WMA format—and plug it into the USB port, using the system’s remote controller to play back your music. As the audio signals are transported in digital form, rather than analog, there is much less chance for signal degradation. Your music sounds clearer and more faithful to the original. You can plug your in iPod or iPhone for an automatic recharge at any time, with the system returning to standby mode once you disconnect the device*.
*Some models do not support automatic recharge on standby. Please refer to the Onkyo website or product manual for details.
