heard from an authorized dealer that Nakamichi is done, again. They were not present at CES. I guess paying over a grand for a deck and not having it function is a little unnerving,

After its latest bankruptcy, Nakamichi was taken over by the Grande Group in Hong Kong.  Grande owns the Nakamichi, Akai, Kawa and Sansui brands.  Akai is planning a major push back into the US market with some interesting new higher-end tube amplifier based home products, and a promissed line of "high end" car audio.  Nakamichi is focussing their efforts in home theatre in the US and may pull out of the car audio market completely.  Look for some of the Nak technology to show up in the new Akai-branded gear when it hits the street.  They'll be imported through ESI in Woodland Hills Ca. (for any of you retailers out there who might be interested.)

OMG YOUR KIDDING ME! I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT! send me a link before i go into cardiac arrest! WTF, I AM .... WHAT THE F#$k, THE GREATEST HEAD UNIT MAKER OF ALL TIME LEAVING THE CAR AUDIO INDUSTRY FOR SOME JAPANESE  BULLCRAP THAT WILL TRY TO REPLACE IT? I won't have it. I'm booking a ticket to japan in the morning, as well as my 10mm and a ski mask. NEVER WILL I ALLOW IT! NEVER!!!! (Calling a psychiatrist and psycho ward)... you seriously are joking right. That is a sick joke.
"I don't play games. I play Nakamichi and that for real yo" - Probably some japanese kid said this in the early 80's trying to sell stereo out of his trunk lol.
