Pros and Cons
Pros1

Extremely easy to setup on a samsung tv at least. Good quality sound and very easy to install.

Cons1

I read a review before purchasing from a buyer who had problems getting the sub-woofer to work. And the seller says that amazon prevents them from sending a replacement.

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.
