Dad splurged on some Nakamichi stuff in the late 1990s, good stuff as I remember. I even put one of their headunits in the truck I had at the time. Seems they don't really sell any of that in the US market these days. Just the typical soundbar stuff.
I wondered what Nakamichi was doing lately and found out late 90's was probably the last time they offered anything special.
They were bought in 1998 by Hong Kong based Grande Holdings that also owns Akai and Sansui brands.
Niro Nakamichi started his own brand soon after but that story is just sad. They tried selling high end amplifiers but it didn't work out.
They currently use their history and brand to sell outdated home surround sound systems.
Shame that so many old brands have been taken over by investors that cut corners and outsourced to china. I noticed only recently that MB Quart in germany suffered the same fate back in 2004. At least they still exist in another form. Their old crew run a new company under GermanMaestro brand.
