Fully featured and boasting the sound quality you'd expect from Onkyo, the only surprise to be had with the Onkyo CS245 is its fantastic value price!

BUILT-IN IPOD/IPHONE DOCK AND USB PORT

With a built-in dock suitable for iPod or iPhone, the Onkyo CS245 makes the ideal mini hi-fi for freeing your iPod/iPhone's music library. Better still, this is a digital dock that taps into the digital output of your Apple device rather than the analogue output. By keeping the signal digital from source to speaker, the sound quality is less likely to be degraded and is therefore crisp and pure. The supplied remote controls the device's track selection and shuffle modes. Finally, the dock will, of course, also charge your iPod or iPhone.

In addition to the built-in dock, the Onkyo CS245 also comes with a front-mounted USB port. Connect your suitable USB flash memory device and you'll be able to control and playback your stored digital music via USB.

QUALITY DAB TUNER AND CD PLAYER BUILT-IN

Boasting DAB+ and FM, the built-in tuner has radio covered - both for now and future. With 40 + 40 presets (DAB/FM) it's also easy to keep track of your favourite stations. The CD player features three play modes (normal/random/repeat) plus two repeat modes (disc/track) for complete playback flexibility. It will also play MP3 CDs and finalised CD-RW discs.

ONKYO QUALITY SOUND

Using digital amplification, the CS245 is not only extremely energy efficient, it also sounds punchy and dynamic. Although small, the powerful sound with Super Bass Function can fill a fair sized room before becoming overwhelmed. The supplied speakers are similarly deceptive and, thanks to their bass reflex design, punch well above their compact size.

Ideal as a second system in a bedroom, study or small living room, the Onkyo CS245 is a top value mini hi-fi of quality.

Ordered one for hell of it. Judging by the current sell prices I could always make a profit or break even if I sold it on

nice find
Incredibly cheap, sorely tempted, don't need it, can I justify it?

Next cheapest price is £210, this is almost misprice territory. Going to order one. Thanks OP.

Not sure if this model has bluetooth built-in, like they seem to have on the continent?

Enough to annoy the neighbours or those downstairs, nowadays a good set off headphones is more socially responsible for all, especially us parents
If I am not careful,I will have an onkyo in every ruddy room! Hot &nice find.
It's alright, about time someone did something like this well for Android - S3 for example surely has shifted enough units to make it worth a go.
Excellent system at a good price.
Anyone else having problems with their website? Won't do anything when clicking "Save and continue" having selected a delivery options.
damn,thought this was great then noticed the ipod dock on the top. Can't buy it now. I refuse to buy anything with an ipod dock taking centre stage.
Does this have blue tooth? Or work with iphone5?

+1, I was on the verge of ordering but I refuse to get involved with such a closed ecosystem. Especially when there's no good reason not to support "everything" (being the top 3 or 4 mobile platforms at least)
Use a 3.5 to phono and it then works with everything.
No pleasing some...
HOT has an iPod dock for my Iphone and iPod. Excellent find
Amazing bargain for Christmas
not sure of whether to order one for delivery or wait until shop opens in the morning and risk the offer being pulled
The problem is I don't need it, as I already have a stereo in every room, but at this price... can hardly resist to buy

Here, but given that this datasheet was made (05/11) before the 4s was released would think that it may work too

Don't need it as I have a Monitor i-deck I bought a few years back which is a tad more powerful. So I bought it. Annoyingly, the £10 voucher you get for joining the VIP section is valid in store only and for purchases of £100 or more. May take a trip tomorrow and pick up set of batteries if I can save another tenner or so.
purchased, great buy.

Superhot. Guess these are getting flogged off at clearance prices now due to the lack of a lightning port

What's the legality of buying multiple for resale?

What's the legality of buying multiple for resale?




Do what you like as long as you pay your taxes on your earnings. The retailer can refuse to honour the warranty and direct you to the manufacturer when you want a repair etc plus you have no entitlement to a refund under DSR as it is considered a wholesale / commercial purchase.

This is a free country, buy and sell whatever you like (subject to registering with HMRC if this was a regular source of income)
