A little old, a little new. Mix them together and you get Onkyo's
newest. The Onkyo
CS-V645 DVD/CD Mini AV system has a touch of retro
style, but it supports one of the newest media players. By glancing at
it, you may expect this unit to play back cassettes or records, but no,
it's an iPod sound system. Designed to work in close quarters (dorm
rooms, offices, etc.), the system has a built-in iPod
dock, a USB
connection, an HDMI output (for passing along HDMI content to a
connected display) and a pair of two-way loudspeakers.
Aside from the iPod, it can also play CDs and various other formats via
USB, as flash drives and such can be plugged in with music files loaded
on. The CS-445 CD mini system is similar, but lacks a USB port and iPod port. Both
systems have 40-watt stereo amplifiers and two speakers, and the DVD
receiver has a 20-preset FM tuner, the CD receiver has an AM/FM
tuner with 40 presets. 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.
