Press & Customer Reviews

  • "Nakamichi set out to prove they could achieve the best surround experience in a competitive field, including soundbar systems that cost many times more. They did just that."

    - Marshall Guthrie, Audioholics

  • “Most impressive is the creation of an immersive surround sound bubble while still maintaining needed discrete audio cues and accurate bass, which is often missing from many soundbar systems.”

    - Robert Silva, Lifewire

  • "I tried several other system, LG, Sony etc and ended up returning them. They didn't quite live up to what this system offered. This system gives you the true sound of a Movie Theater. Friends and family mouths drop when watching a movie, streaming , Sports or anything off the TV now."

  • "Overall I rate the Nakamichi a solid 5/5 with the customer service an added cherry on top. I'm impressed with the brand and the customer service enough that I will be purchasing the lower model (Pro 7.1) for my living room in the next couple of weeks."

  • "Very easy to hook up and the Nakamichi support team is quick and very helpful. Hooked this bad boy into my 65 inch Samsung which has the one connect adapter. Easy as pie. Just watched Wonder Women last night in 9.2 surround, better than the movie theater. Bad Ass system. Go Nakamichi!"

    Amazon Five Star Review
  • "I’ve owned both the Samsung k950 Atmos system and the Sony ht-st5000 and this nakamichi system beats both in build quality and sound quality. It makes normal direct tv content sound amazing. This is a great system for the price it is offered at. You will be hard pressed to find another that sounds this good."

    Amazon Five Star Review
  • "Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm stunned by the vibrant clear sound, deep but tight bass and the ease of operation. From out of the box to complete setup as well as any learning curve took me a bout 90 minutes. I could not have asked for more from a $3000 system and this one does it at $900."
