Admittedly I have not read each reply. My take of the Nakamichi Shockwafe DTS:X Ultra 9.2 Soundbar concerns setup and room shape. I do agree this system seems awesome yet the Nakamichi Shockwafe DTS:X Ultra 9.2 Soundbar is a full fledged, almost full size audio system requiring a defined shaped room, room size and dedicated speaker locations. Seemingly, this system is basically the reverse of a soundbars intent. That being a audio component which in itself and a sub to can provide excellent audio without taking up much placement space. I am sensitive to this issue since our home does not and can not provide the required physical parameters necessary for such a fantastic system. Sadly, the Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2 seems to be too much of a good thing for many soundbar consumers. Heck, our room is such a odd design I can't even add rear wireless speakers.
Absolutely, no criticism intended. Simply my view point.
