Welcome to a review of the Onkyo CS-345 Hi-Fi CD Mini System with iPod/iPhone Dock. Don’t let the small size fool you, Onkyo’s CS-345 Hi-Fi mini-system packs a powerful punch. Enclosed in the compact cabinets are a high quality cone woofer and balanced dome tweeter to give you a more balanced sound and disperse the high and low tones more evenly to create more clarity. This system is equipped with an active bass control which enhances the performance and automatically adjusts bass levels to prevent fading when the volume is low. The easy access dock located at the top of the receiver will play your music through an iPhone/Ipod. An AM/FM tuner is part of the system, with 30 presets for your convenience.

The part # for the remote control that comes with this system is RC-823S.

Another great feature is the video line-out for iPod/iPhone playback on a TV. Any videos stored on your iPod or iPhone, you can now watch on your TV and control with the included remote. The CD tray on the front plays audio compact discs, MP3 compilations, and CD-R/CD-RW discs. Some users have commented that the speaker cables that come in the box are too short and have used alternative cables that are a bit longer. Overall however, this compact mini-system, made for smaller spaces, does what it is designed to do, deliver high quality sound with clarity and depth.
