Pros and Cons
Pros4

Nakamichi system comes with 4 surround speakers and two 10 subwoofers. The soundbar gets plenty loud, as does the subwoofer. Bass and subs are louder and stronger!

The explosions and collisions rock my whole house, i literally feel im in the story. The clears up voices that were hard to hear before.

The new remote is probably the best remote control i’ve seen in a surround system. Feels more modern with larger * and brighter and cleaner backlit keys. It took me three days to get the sub and back surround speakers set to my liking.

The responsiveness is much improved as well. The other reviewers were not exaggerating, it's a really good soundbar and i recommend also. There is a firmware update that you need to do to maximize the quality but it's easy to do. It works consistently...  Read More

The sound bar has some issues, some are minor and some are major. Pausing sources and starting them via arc, there is almost a 20 second lag between video resume and audio. If i fast forward or rewind the movie it takes 5 to 10 seconds for the sound t...  Read More

After months with this unit, it is just unsatisfactory. These are not vendor-specific. These numbers are not to be used for marketing gimmicks.

It sounds tinny and muddy at the same time. The bass is the biggest disappointment. After setting everything all up and putting on endgame, the sound is terrible.

Working inside of 30 minutes. No avail. When it works. That’s just my speculation though. This is okay at best.

It’s embarrassing how many times it glitches when i have people over. I have to turn it on multiple times before it finally stays on.

Pros2

The new remote is probably the best remote control i’ve seen in a surround system. The backlit keys are also brighter so controlling it in the dark is a breeze. the menu utilizes the small led panel on the speaker strip to scroll through settings.

Ghz is the recommended frequency for a 5-fi router. Ghz is the most common 4.

Cons5

This soundbar still roars and it is far better than this nakamichi. This system lacks any directional audio detail. The center speaker is far inferior to my tv speaker and i am constantly shutting it off.

System has sync issues from bar to both subs. The subs crackle randomly even when no audio is being played. Bluetooth subs and side speakers lose connection for about 2 seconds.

After months with this unit, it is just unsatisfactory. That is why you see so many people trying to dump this garbage. Not one of the 3. Poor execution nakamichi.

The bass is the biggest disappointment. I'm very glad i returned it and went with the sony htz9f.

If i pause a movie it will take 3 to 7 seconds to get sound again after hitting play. If i fast forward or rewind the movie it takes 5 to 10 seconds for the sound to come back on. When you rewind 10 seconds it is pointless.
