    - RJgroves, Shockwafe Ultra 9.2

  • Nakamichi support is only a phone call or email away. I have not seen any customer support group return emails or phone calls as quickly. My entire experience thus far has been nothing but positive.

    - Anonymous, Shockwafe Ultra 9.2

  • I am also including some suggestions for Nakamichi, as it looks like their reps do check out feedback. I have already had one phenomenal experience with their customer service.

    - NV, Shockwafe Ultra 9.2
