Stylish Colors and Features in One Sweet-Sounding Package
With quick and easy NFC pairing for mobiles, Bluetooth technology, and more amp power than ever, the CS-265 brings big and brilliant sound to small spaces. A quality front-loading CD player handles regular audio CD and both MP3- and WAV-encoded discs, while iOS mobile users are treated to an ultra-clear USB connection. Or fill a USB flash drive with MP3s and select tracks using the included remote control. Whichever way you play, you’ll appreciate sound that belies the system’s compact dimensions. A redesigned digital amp and powerful 2-way bookshelf speakers help to uncover hidden details in the mix while projecting music deep and wide in your room. Like it punchy, or with a more laid-back presentation? Proper tone controls and a 2-Mode Super Bass function let you find the right balance. Available in bold and vibrant colors, and looking fantastic with its clean, sleek lines, the CS-265 is easily the coolest and best-sounding mini system we’ve ever made at this price. It feels reassuringly weighty, solid, and well worthy of our 65 years in the Hi-Fi business.
Class-Leading Sound with More Power and Clarity
When it comes to getting great sound in small spaces, you can’t go past the gold standard of a separate amp and stereo speakers. The Onkyo CR-265 receiver boasts over 25 percent more amp power with improved signal-to-noise performance compared to the popular model it replaces. This means that music sounds even clearer with less distortion at high volume. Thanks to solid 2-way speakers, the soundstage is wider and deeper for more immersive playback.
Quality 2-Way Speakers for Enhanced Detail Resolution
The CS-265 includes a pair of bass-reflex speakers fitted with 10 cm woofers and 2 cm balanced-dome tweeters to ensure that full-spectrum sound is reproduced clearly. The cabinets feature cool rounded edges, sculpted grilles, and a front-to-rear taper that reduces internal standing waves—a phenomenon that can muddy the sound. Compact and robust, these speakers fit comfortably and sound great in the smallest spaces.
Wirelessly Stream from Mobile and PC
Inbuilt Bluetooth technology lets you wirelessly stream audio playing on your PC, mobile, or tablet. Once paired up, you can enjoy everything from albums on Spotify to your smartphone’s audio library in full-bodied stereo sound.
Quick and Easy Pairing with NFC
You can also wirelessly connect any compatible mobile device to the CS-265 using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. Just touch your device on the receiver and Bluetooth pairing is performed in moments. With no passwords to enter and fewer buttons to push, you can enjoy wireless audio quickly and conveniently any time you like.
Clean and Clear USB Connection for iPod/iPhone/iPad
Connect almost any iPhone, iPod touch, iPod nano, or iPad via the front panel USB and recharge as you listen. You can use the system remote controller or your connected device to select your music. Audio signals are transported digitally (bypassing the device’s analog conversion circuits) for noticeably clearer sound, and the connection supports playback of MP3s via a compatible USB flash drive.
Super Bass Function
Sometimes the music demands a little extra punch. The 2-Mode Super Bass function on the CS-265 gives a welcome boost to the bottom end, adding just the right amount of weight to bass guitar and kick drum without sounding distorted, harsh, or boomy.
Quiet and Smooth Front-Loading CD Player
Our front-loading CD player provides a convenient and safe way to enjoy your compact discs, with less chance of scratches and satisfyingly smooth, swift, and quiet loading. Track-, album-, and folder-repeat modes and a random playback option are handy inclusions, and the receiver plays regular audio CDs, CD-R/RW discs, and both MP3- and WAV-encoded albums.
FM Tuner with 30 Station Presets
Jump to any of 30 preset FM radio stations without fear of losing the station you’re listening to. Once you’ve got your favorites locked in, you’ll never have to scan and reprogram again—a battery-free memory backup stores them safely even if you disconnect the system.
A Statement in Sound and Style
