Described as a micro hi-fi for audiophiles, it’s a high-tech but small-space sound system that can play off a CD, iPod, USB or Auxilary connection.

That means you can plug this into pretty much anything and get it to play the sound out at good quality. The Onkyo offering is at the top-end of home

There’s an integrated iPod/iPhone dock which charges up your device while playing off it. The Music quality is a big deal for these guys. They tell us.

“Most importantly, however, this system sounds utterly musical… maximising sound quality and involvement were the number one priorities in its development. Bass control, midrange accuracy, treble sweetness and timing are unparalleled at its price.”

Comes in black or silver.

Price: Onkyo CS-545UK is £349 available from September 2010.
