Onkyo adds the X-factor
THE ONKYO DS-A2 is the budget choice cradle to connect an iPod to a sound system.This new model has
an extra ‘X’ in its name,but some things are the same:the onescreen display and video playback using the
composite out, and Onkyo’s RI functionality for remote contral sharing when using with another Onkyo product.
If you’re not connecting to another Onkyo,the ‘A2X also comes with its own little remote.
In action,the Onk’ is a decent listen.As long as your digital music isn’t too compressed, tunes are clear,well
defined and generally well balanced. It does lack a little weight,occasionally introducing a touch of brightness but
given the buget price, we’re prepared to be pretty forgiving.
