Onkyo CS-265 Review: Bringing the Compact System Back


Simple, understated looks Compact package that will fit into small spaces Excellent lows and punchy, strong bass Loud for such a small unit Well priced

Weak upper-mids Could be better tonally

The Onkyo CS-265 compact system is a niche product; purist audiophiles will prefer more accomplished individual components, while people on a budget or with space constraints are more likely to stick to headphones or smaller single-unit speakers....
