Our take on the Onkyo CS-N755

by Dave Bar
Onkyo

Enjoy more of your music

No matter what form your favorite audio entertainment takes  —  CDs, local radio broadcasts, your iPod®, smartphone, or Internet radio —  the Onkyo CS-N755 will play it back with rich, clear sound. This versatile mini system packs the technology you need to enjoy all your tunes with ease. Its premium-quality design and compact size make it a perfect choice for highly enjoyable listening in smaller spaces.

Lots of ways to listen

The CS-N755's built-in Ethernet connection makes it easy to stream online subscription music services like Pandora® Internet radio, Rhapsody, and SiriusXM, along with thousands of free Internet radio stations. Plus, you can tap into your personal music collection (such as your iTunes® library) from a network connected computer. A front-panel USB input lets you connect a select iPod® or iPhone® and control it using the Onkyo remote. You can also plug in a thumb drive loaded with music and enjoy your favorites that way. There's even a free downloadable Onkyo remote app that lets you turn your iPod touch®, iPhone. or Android™ smartphone into a cool touchscreen system remote. The disc player handles standard music CDs, as well as home-burned MP3 discs. And the system's AM/FM tuner features 40 station presets to keep you in touch with local news, weather, and music.    

Small system with a big sound

With no shortage of music to play, you'll need a system with speakers that can handle the action. Each of the included speaker cabinets boast a 4" cone woofer for potent bass and clear midrange, and a balanced 1" dome tweeter to supply smooth treble with plenty of detail. The CS-N755's amplifier technology comes directly from Onkyo's high-end audio components, using a symmetrical channel layout and short signal paths to reduce unwanted noise and interference while delivering powerful, well-separated stereo sound.

Audio Section

Symmetrical Designed Power Amplifier: The Onkyo CS-N755 is equipped with a 13 watt x 2 channel amplifier. Its symmetrical and uniform layout minimizes the chance of interference between left and right channels.

WRAT (Wide Range Amplifier Technology): WRAT is based around a low negative-feedback circuit topology that works to reduce signal noise and distortion across the frequency range. A "closed ground-loop circuit" design is employed, in which each circuit has a separate link to the power supply. This helps to cancel individual circuit noise and keep the ground potential free of distortion. High Instantaneous Current Capability (HICC) enables WRAT amplifiers to immediately cancel the speakers' reflex energy and instantaneously send out the next signal. The same high current better manages speaker impedance fluctuations, which can negatively affect performance.

3-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry: 3-Stage Inverted Darlington Circuitry is a core Onkyo technology incorporating a low-NFB (negative feedback) design that makes the sound more natural.

192kHz/24-Bit Audio DAC: The 192 kHz/24-bit audio DAC enables the best possible reproduction of standard and high-definition audio formats.

VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry): Conventional D/A conversion methods reduce digital pulse noise at the conversion stage, but can't remove it completely. Previously only found on higher-end components, VLSC (Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry) employs a unique D/A conversion circuit to overcome this problem. Data is converted between sampling points and these points are joined with analog vectors in real-time to produce a smooth output wave form. The result is a virtually noiseless, smooth analog signal based on the digital source to bring out even the most subtle of nuances in your music, movie soundtracks, and even MP3.

Advanced Music Optimizer: While compressed music files may sound fine through the headphones of your portable digital player, the limitations of these files can be exposed when played back through a quality home entertainment system. This is because a significant amount of high-frequency bit information is lost during the file-compression process. To counter this, Onkyo has designed the Advanced Music Optimizer to compensate for lost bit information and improve the quality of compressed audio signals. This results in a clearer and more expansive sound. Also included in this technology is a loudness correction feature that further improves the audio character of compressed files. The Music Optimizer function only works with PCM digital audio signals with a sampling rate below 48kHz and analog input signals.

Tone Control + Phase Matching Bass Boost: You can independently adjust the Bass & Treble of the CS-N755 from -3 to +3 dB. Onkyo's Phase-Matching Bass Boost technology effectively preserves midrange clarity, allowing vocals and string instruments to sound natural while maintaining a smooth powerful bass response at all volume levels.

Direct Mode: When the Direct Mode is activated, the tone controls are bypassed, so you can enjoy the purest sound possible.

Analog + Digital Inputs: The Onkyo CS-N755 is fitted with both analog and digital audio inputs. There are 2 stereo RCA and one minijack (3.5mm) analog audio inputs. In addition, there is one optical and coaxial digital input.

Line Output: The CS-N755 is also fitted with an analog stereo RCA output for connecting a recording device.

Binding Post Speaker Terminals: There are color-coded, binding post terminals will accept bare-wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single/dual).

Subwoofer Preamp Output: There is a mono RCA jack for connecting a powered subwoofer.

Headphone Jack: For private listening, the CS-N755 has a front-panel 3.5mm minijack headphone output. When headphones are connected, the unit's speakers are muted.

Two-Way Bookshelf Speakers: The CS-N755 comes with a pair of 2-way 4Ω bookshelf loudspeakers. The speakers feature a 1" balanced, soft dome tweeter and a 4" OMF (Onkyo Micro Fiber) woofer, loaded into a bass reflex enclosure with a rear-firing port. The included black cloth grilles are detachable. The speakers have binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and banana plugs (single only) and come with two 6' lengths of speaker wire. Other speaker specifications include:

Onkyo CS-N755 Quality and Value

Written By Brian McC., Castro Valley, CA on Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great bookshelf unit. After reading some of the reviews I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to set up and connect to my network With the UWF-1 adaptor. Very good sound that can fill a 14x20 room with large entry ways. Only recommendation I would make if you are considering these items is, if you want serious low end bass, you may want to invest in a powered sub. This unit sounds great, but it won't rattle the windows.
Pros:
Size, Sound Quality, Ease of set-up and use, price

Simple Quality

Written By Anonymous, Amarillo, TX on Thursday, February 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wanted a small unit for a bedroom apartment. I wanted media flexibility and at a reasonable price range. I was very pleased with the simplicity and quality of the Onkyo. I did add a sub-woofer to broaden the bass sound. I like Classic Rock and was very pleased with the sound quality. I cranked up Led Zep, Who, and Heart and was very satisfied. I have a large CD collection and it plays flawlessly. I also stream Sirius off my Iphone with blue tooth. I found the pairing simple to set up and get going. My blue-tooth does not always work 100% at my local gym. But I have had no issues with blue-tooth on this unit. I only have a Ipod Nano mp3 player and it sounds great plugged in - but its a little cumbersome to navigate artists and albums. Overall, I was very pleased with the quality and price.

Was looking for a small system for the bedroom. After reading several reviews and doing some further research online, I decided to go with this Onkyo system, and we're very happy with our choice. This is a well-constructed and thoughtfully engineered system that offers all of the features we were looking for and the sound quality is excellent! Very good value for the money.

Small System with Good Sound

Written By FloydEH, Washington, DC on Friday, December 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this mini stereo system for the apartment we're living in for a year here in DC. I wanted something that would produce decent sound from CD's, DVD's and the cable TV. That it also had internet radio capabilities was a plus. As it turns out the system performs as well as one could expect. I read many reviews of similar systems, and had narrowed my choice to this Onkyo unit or a similar Denon system. The Denon was less expensive, and did not have the connectivity. Many of the reviews of the Onkyo suggested replacing the accompanying speakers with something better such as the Mordaunt-Short Carnival 2 speakers. I actually tried to find a pair of the Mordaunt-Shorts when I made my decision to buy the Onkyo but no one seemed to have any in stock. As it is, I'm glad that they didn't. In performance, the Onkyo exceeds my expectations. It is solidly built and sounds as good as it looks. While the Mordaunt-Short speakers may provide better sound than the stock speakers, I am more than happy with the sound of the stock ones. The sound is full and pleasant when played at a reasonable volume. Music played too softly becomes thin and wispy, at a reasonable listening level the sound is quite pleasant, full and life-like, with pleanty of imaging and good separation. Set up was relatively easy and simple, and operation is quite easy. The only marginally difficult part was setting up Spotify, or any other internet radio. The manual is quite useless in this regard.
Pros:
Good sound for the money, stock speakers more than adequate, very flexible, easy to set up and use. I recomend downloading the remote control app for your iphone or android.
Cons:
The manual is useless when trying to set up any of the networking functions. It's best to search the web for instructions and hints from others who have already done it.

Small package with big delivery

Written By FranHB, Huntington Beach, CA on Sunday, November 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this system for my husband for the holidays. i wanted something that could neatly fit in our kitchen. He does a lot of cooking and likes to listen to the news, music etc. We also have a wireless router in the house for our computers and I thought getting access to the streaming radio stations on the net would be a great plus to a music system. Well this one does not disappoint. I took the time to review what others had to say so let me put my 2 cents in about this product. First, it has a great sound, I dont have an ear for minutiae, overall the use and clarity of the sound is definitely good enough for our use. Second, it has a USB dock for our iPods and can also play CD's as well as stream music from the net. We can also make flashdrives for special music mixes (holiday stuff) that can be easily played on the system. Have I said it has a great sound? Overall, its a great versatile music system. Would highly recommend. I must also say that one of the reviewers said they could not get the wi-fi to work. I will say that the instructions with the system are awful. And You will need to buy a wireless LAN adapter. The instructions with the adapter to connect also are not very good. But I will say that the techs at Crutchfield got me online without an issue. The downside is that the net connection is somewhat primitive and not very easy to maneuver but it does work and I have had no problems once I figured it out.
Pros:
very comprehensive music system easy to install great speaker sound
Cons:
Connection to the internet may require a call to tech services Be sure to buy the LAN adapter if you plan to stream music

Great sound, great features, great value

Written By Eric G., Albany, NY on Wednesday, April 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this system after being disappointed in a Bose Wave III system (sounded pretty good for a compact unit, but didn't sound as good as other systems for the price). I bought this one partly on the basis of an expert review.

I've only put a few hours on the Onkyo so far, but am really impressed with the sound and it packs a ton of features into a great package for the price.

I'm an old-school guy and listen to a lot of old rock, blues, soul, etc. Lots of guitars, bass, drums, keys & vocals. The sound is clear and natural, and I love the Direct Out feature that lets you bypass its built-in EQ so you're getting the pure EQ of the recording from the studio. The sound is also good when using the EQ, though I found the highs a little spikey and the bass a little strident. Not bad, but I like it better bypassing the EQ. As the speakers are breaking in the highs are getting a little warmer and more natural.

The speakers and unit itself are heavy for their size and seem solidly built. This seems like the kind of equipment you can expect to last a long time.

The FM tuner is very good, and is pulling in stations with crystal clear precision that were fuzzy with the Bose.

I'm very happy with this purchase.
Pros:
Great sound & features.
Cons:
Rear USB doesn't seem to let you use it as an input Some settings require navigating through several menu choices iPod can't be controlled from the iPod, you have to use the Onkyo's controls and they're not as slick as the iPod's.

  • Yes, but the set up is very complex. I have to admit that I gave up after trying to synch my iPad to the Onkyo twice. The wired hookup is okay-- but the unit is very finicky about Pandora, Apple Radio and Spotify. I should also mention that I was somewhat disappointed with the OEM speakers. I have since replaced them with a pair of Micca speakers which are an improvement--but I am continuing to look around [ JOHN J   Jan 25, 2014 ]
