Onkyo has released details of their latest AirPlay offering in the Onkyo ABX-N300 iOnly Stream, a wireless audio system packed with the latest features, and from the looks of it, a fairly classy design as well.

The Onkyo ABX-N300 iOnly has a different look from most AirPlay/iPod speaker docks I have seen to date, and by first impression I quite like it. The wide body has a curved bottom with a flat top that also houses the physical docking station as well as what looks like a fairly large LCD display and touch button panel for controls. Slide the aluminum top cover to the side and it reveals the docking station itself, allowing you to cover it over when your are using the systems wireless capabilities. The same aluminum finish can be found on the foot of the unit, which is very iMac like, giving the system a premium feel.

This is not a one-trick-pony though as there are plenty of options other than just AirPlay streaming and a physical iOS docking station. Its wireless (and wired) capabilities include streaming from networked sources, such as a computer or media server, supporting audio formats including FLAC, WAV and WMA lossless audio files. Internet radio is also included along with cloud music services. Not all services (think spotify and last.fm) are included in the audio system itself, but can be used with the AirPlay feature from your iOS device.

Inside the Onkyo ABX-N300 iOnly Stream they have included dual full-range bass reflex speakers with active bass control that are individually housed for reduced vibrations/interference. Power output of the system is 2x10W, which on first view feels a bit light, so I am very curious as to how the audio experience will be like, and if the system will have enough power/performance at higher volume.
