Beautifully Designed User Interface Makes Operation a Pleasure for Everyone
UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ, August 23, 2017 – Onkyo USA is pleased to announce two new compact systems: the CS-N575 Network Hi-Fi CD System (MSRP $499 USD / $599.99 CAD) and CS-375 CD Receiver System (MSRP $349 / $499.99 CAD). Providing big value in small packages, both units deliver a musical experience akin to component systems, and include a simplified user-interface on the front-panel that features a new JOG dial control that helps people of any age find and play music in seconds. The network-enabled CS-N575 steps up to a larger informational LCD for navigating content, as well as displaying full-color album-art and information.
Both CS-N575 and CS-375 have wake-and-play Bluetooth® technology along with an FM tuner, while the CS-N575 gains Next Generation Network Audio supporting Chromecast built-in, DTS Play-Fi®*1, and FireConnect™*2 powered by Blackfire multi-room over 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi®.
With Chromecast built-in, users can stream music from Chromecast-enabled apps for iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ devices, Mac® or Windows® laptop, and Chromebook to supported speakers, audio, and home theater systems.
Alternatively, with DTS Play-Fi technology, users can stream music to the CS-N575 from the Onkyo Music Control app*3 for iPad, iPhone, or Android devices. If users have other compatible components, music playback can be synchronized around the home, or different music streamed to different speakers via the app from the same device.
On the CS-N575, Spotify®, TIDAL, Deezer, Pandora®, and TuneIn can be explored using the JOG dial and LCD; dedicated apps (where available), or the Onkyo Controller multi-room remote app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
The CS-N575 and CS-375 share efficient 20 W + 20 W (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 10%, 2-channels driven) switching amplification developed by Onkyo’s engineering team featuring its new Optimum Audio Control DSP tuning, which integrates amp and speaker characteristics for the best possible performance. The switching amp delivers instantaneous, high-driving power for increased speaker sound-pressure to create a wide, immersive sound field.
Furthermore, with processing and amplification performed in the digital domain, accurate detail resolution is possible across a wider frequency bandwidth for rich, nuanced vocals, buoyant bass, and unstrained articulation of high frequencies.
The supplied acoustic-suspension speakers include a 5-inch pressed pulp-fiber woofer and 1-inch soft-dome tweeter in a thick MDF baffle. The speakers project rich stereo sound out of a compact footprint.
Wired connectivity is generous with both systems gaining USB Audio playback from flash-memory devices. The CS-N575 adds support for HDDs*4 and Hi-Res Audio to 192 kHz/24-bit in FLAC, WAV, and ALAC formats, as well as DSD in up to 5.6 MHz resolution. Both include a 96 kHz/24-bit-capable optical digital audio input (ideal for TV or PC connection), RCA line-level input, and front-loading CD player for audio and MP3-encoded discs. The CS-N575 also features a pre-out for subwoofer connection.
Handsomely proportioned, beautifully finished, seamless to use, and among the best-sounding compact systems in their class, the CS-N575 and CS-375 redefine value and performance for music lovers.
