CD Receiver System

Award - Winning Compact Audio Design and Performance with USB Connectivity

Building on the success of Onkyo’s 2007 award-winning compact audio system, the CS-525 harnesses the same audio design for an audio performance that has been compared to that of quality separate components. Specifically, at the playback stage, you have Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) working to remove noise from the audio signal during the conversion process. And at the amplification stage, Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT) provides the foundation for a listening experience that’s truly musical. Onkyo compact systems are all about continuous improvement. So you’ll find a USB port for connecting to mass storage devices (such as MP3 players) and a new-look, gloss finish that earns the CS-525 some serious style credentials.
