Upper Saddle River, N.J. - Onkyo added embedded iPod/iPhone docks to its newest three-piece mini systems, one with CD/DVD-receiver and the other with CD-receiver.
Both come with a pair of two-way speakers.
The company previously offered three-piece systems with CD-receivers and DVD-receivers but without embedded docks. At least one connected to an optional iPod dock. The company also previously offered a one-piece iPhone-iPod-docking music system with embedded dock, radio and CD.
The new DVD-equipped system is the $399-suggested CS-V645 mini system, available early December with 20-preset FM tuner, dock on top, front-panel USB to connect flash drives and other portable media players, 1080p HDMI up-scaling, iPod/iPhone video out to a TV, and support for MP3, WMA, JPEG and DivX files.
The CS-445 mini system, due early this month at a suggested $329, is an audio-only system with CD-receiver, AM/FM tuner with 40 presets, dock on top, and playback of MP3 and WMA CDs.
Both systems feature 2x40-watt amps and a pair of two-way bass-reflex loudspeakers with 1-inch soft dome tweeter and OMF (Onkyo Micro Fiber) woofer cones. Both come with full-function remote control.
