Summary: I ordered this system to replace an old failing desk stereo. The sound quality is great. I needed a radio that could play CDs and stream from a tablet. I like to listen to ripped CDs in FLAC format and the ability to play that format makes it indispensable for a large digitized CD collection. Regular CD play is very good and the player mechanism is quiet and does not interfere with the CD sound.
Summary: Bought this to substitute my 8 years old hifi stereo composed of a Vincent SV226mk amplifier, a Vincent CDS1.1 cd player, a Logitech Squeezebox Touch stream box and a pair of Quad 11L speakers. For those of you who may not know, these equipments are of very good quality and together cost about 2000$. Unfortunately I just needed to sell them, basically because I needed some cash.
Summary: Easy to set up. Deep rich sound. Easy to connect to Internet. Don't purchase the wireless adapter for the internet. It does not give a good connection, instead just connect directly to the internet and you will immediately be able to hear Internet radio. I love this stereo system!
Summary: The Onkyo CS-N755 is an excellent value. The quality of sound from such a small set of speakers has to be heard to be believed. It easily out performs sets costing twice as much, and fits in a quite compact foot print that easily fits on most bookcases.
Summary: PROS 1. Really nice quality of sound and good overall looks, pretty intuitive to use for the first time. 2. Very sensitive remote - works well with IR bouncing off walls from another room through an open door. 3. USB inputs front and rear - plays different audio formats flawlessly from USB flash drives. 4. Decodes and plays FLAC files (Free Lossless Audio Codec) very nicely. 5. "Display" button on the remote switches between name tags, time, bitrate details, etc. CONS 1.
Summary: Very happy after a few weeks. Tried Onkyo's WiFi adapter and it connected from 25 feet one time--useless Kind of shocking that Onkyo would put out such a low quality adapter. Then tried the other brand recommended and could never connect, although many swore by it. Used ethernet hard-wired connection it I was in business. One bit of advice: Use your PC to organize your Spotify, Aupeo, etc.; then the NET menu is pretty easy to use, despite its tiny screen.
Summary: There are very few small, network-connected compact home stereo systems available that still support DNLP format for streaming. I have a huge audio content collection served from my PC running TVersity server using DNLP protocol and needed something small with built-in Wi-Fi. This Onkyo fit the bill. The sound quality is excellent and both low and high volume.
Summary: Just what I was looking for. I've only had this unit for a few days, but so far, it is living up to expectations. Small form factor, but very solid build quality. Sounds great, even with the supplied onkyo speakers. I wasn't expecting a lot out of the included speakers, but I was pleasantly surprised. Good mids and highs, and just OK bass (I don't like overdone bass). I compared these with my paradigm atom speakers (v7) which I hooked up to this unit.
