Hi just wondering how the atmos update actually sounds on the nakamichi 9.2. Can you tell a difference? How is the elevation effect with atmos content?

I'm thinking of getting the nakamichi 7.1 Pro DTS-X version which will be getting the update sometime.

Also I was wondering if anyone knows what the difference will be with the Nakamichi Pro 7.1 SSE. It's supposed to be the new model. I'm wondering if it's actually new or if it's just the same model with the update.

Has been really hard to keep track of this thread lately (used to read every post) so I apologize if it has been really about recently.

Any word on the update for the 7.2? End of quarter 1 is approaching.

Mine took a week to leave the warehouse. Communication of order status was nil until I emailed, and then just a standard response to wait for the shipping notification. It finally left the warehouse Monday, according to UPS, but there haven’t been any other updates since then. Current status is that it’s supposed to arrive next Monday. So, yeah, two weeks for delivery to the Eastern US (Tennessee).

Edit: I got an update that it’s somewhere in Illinois. I hadn’t checked in the last couple hours.

By the way, it also ships signature required, according to the UPS website.

Well, Duncan, he's just this guy, you know?

So when I shut my TV off the soundbar shuts off for about 3 seconds then turns back on and flashes "arc" even though it's not getting any signal from the TV..... Any suggestions? Very annoying

Ugh. The Shockwafe keeps dropping audio streams from my TivoBolt when it fast forwards or when the audio changes during a commercial. I had to switch to PCM output to prevent these issues. It is on the latest firmware. I had these same issues with my RMC-1, but the latest firmware update fixed it. I wouldn't have expected issues like this from a mature product.

OUCH! Ya, that sucks. I hope UPS is wrong and it gets there sooner. Hell you could've driven out and picked it up by now.

I got mine around Thanksgiving time. Ordered on Amazon and delivery by UPS. They estimated 9 days to Los Angeles. I don't know where it was shipping from to be honest. But on the day it was supposed to deliver (a Friday) it stopped showing a delivery date. I didn't expect anything over the weekend but on Monday it showed a delivery date that was 2 more weeks away, which would make a total delivery time of almost a month. Box showed up at my doorstep three days later, so about two weeks to deliver.

If you can go to 7.2 Elite... no joke. two subs doesnt make it crazy bass police noise call... it just evens it out... soooo much.

Dual subwoofers improve sound tremendously, and even more so in the case of a soundbar.

Dual subwoofers compensate for standing waves and interference patterns, providing a smooth and full frequency response. Also, typical soundbars with crossovers above 80 hz tend to produce base localization, with the effect that most vocals (as well as part of the musical spectrum) get shared between the sub and the woofer in the soundbar. This can cause the placement of the vocals (and some instruments) to waver between the sources. Dual subs will tend to reduce localization.

Another thing about bass localization is that often you will hear lower frequencies coming from the single sub, rather than being omnidirectional as they should be.

So it's not just about how much bass output you get compared to one sub, but rather better frequency response and greater balance and accuracy in the sound. Definitely go for dual subs.


Perhaps the provision of dual subwoofers in an affordable soundbar is one of the most innovative aspects of the Shockwafe.

I know this is kinda random but I want to share just in case any of you guys are having the same problem that I had.

I've been having trouble with my internet since I got the Nakamichi soundbar (had no clue it was the soundbar). Thought it was 75/75 speed and upgraded to fios gigabit. So my speed was still awful and they came out here about five times to fix it. So I turned off the soundbar at night and realized my speed went up... so I turn the sound bar back on and my speed went back down tremendously. So I turned it off and on a few times and watched my speed go up andnd down. When off it went to where it should be. So now my router is 20 feet from the soundbar and it's better thank goodness.

Maybe I'm the only one that didn't know this would happen, but figured I would share in case anybody's having problems with their internet and the router is close to your soundbar. Still love my 7.2 no matter what have a great weekend all. Set them clocks forward

2. Router interference (2% probability)

Our soundbars utilize industry standard 5.8Ghz wireless chipsets to send data wirelessly to the subwoofers. Why is the industry standard 5.8GHz? It is to avoid interference with 5-GHz Wi-Fi home routers, of which 99% of them operate on 5-GHz frequencies that are around the middle of the 5-GHz frequency spectrum. However, there is still a small risk of interference.

Go to this link and read the suggested frequencies for your router, made a difference on my 9.2:

I had the same problem with the Polk soundbar that I’m replacing with the Nakamichi. Using the Polk soundbar crashed the 5GHz band. Changed the router setting for the 5GHz to channel 36 which was the least congested and lowest one on my router. No more problems.

Well, Duncan, he's just this guy, you know?

DirecTV does the same thing. This issue is super irritating. Nakamichi has reccomend that we should hook cable/satellite provider box to TV and send audio to soundbar via ARC. This idea is bad because the it introduces lip sync issues. Also DirecTV can now do Atmos which should go to soundbar inputs. They need to resolve this issue.

It's pretty rare to see this issue but there are articles on the Nakamichi support site stating to change your wireless router band to alleviate interference. I would have thought you would seen audio cut out vs network speed degregation.

I am surprised tbe low end is the least congested, its usually default. Do you live in a busy area or apartment complex or does your area have room to breathe on frequency bands?

My co.plex is like 200 apartments and the bands are way less congested on the higher bands but I changed them for my 7.2 just in case.

I juat wonder where the 2% problem they say wifi interference comes from? A lot of routers default in the lower bands without manual intervention, is the 2% because of that-- meaning would that percent go higher in a significant way if router deaultes to high bands? OR, is it a rare 2% issue in general? Or is it just based on number of tickets resolved aand has nothing to so with hard data?

Can you tell data analysis is one of the things I do? A total curiosity question that will probably have no answer.

Another one... if they are using a weird wi-fi or bluetooth.... ummm I will just call it a prprietary transmission signal..

that can interrupt normal signals, why is wifi not built in?

Not being critical... just a curiosity post. Why try to live in between the bands, when can embrace them or avoid them?

Thought of day...

Really please just give me 7.2 firmware...

Despite the prevailing wisdom, there's some evidence that 5.8 GHz and 5 GHz can interfere with each other. So my question is whether any part of the system is near a wireless phone, or other transmitting electronics, or possibly next to a metal structure of some sort?

For some routers, “default” is an automatic setting which may or may not pick the least congested channel. Even though I live in the suburbs, I can usually see a couple dozen networks. With a WiFi analyzer I can see which ones are on which channels.

Likely “engineering judgment”, which is a term that’s often misused when someone doesn’t want to say they’re making a somewhat educated guess.

According to Nakamichi, their soundbar uses 5.725-5.875 GHz, which they say is an industry standard for soundbars with wireless peripheral speakers. That range overlaps with what’s referred to as “5GHz” WiFi channels 149 (5.745 GHZ) to 169 (5.825 GHz). I’m not positive, but I think those bands are somewhat unregulated for use by various consumer devices.

Sorry if this got too far off topic.

I don’t think there were any transmitting electronics in the room (other than phones/tablets) or in the AV cabinet that weren’t connected over ethernet, and the wireless access point is in a different part of the house. It was pretty obviously frequency/channel interference, especially when my Wi-Fi became usable again at full 150 Mbps speeds after changing the channel to the lower one. And when I say the Wi-Fi was in usable, I mean that the latency was so bad and the speed was so low that sometimes I couldn’t even complete a speed test on 5GHz.

This is a CEC issue, you can use optical instead of HDMI. Or wait for their upcoming firmware (7.2 and below models) to disable CEC.

Set up my 9.2 system and played with it this weekend. Watched Saving Private Ryan and its a whole new experience with this! Lots of positives!
there are a few negatives but One thing that is driving me nuts is when changing channels with Directv the volume just goes out. Will write up a little review later

Hi,

What are going to be the hardware changes between the current (“old”) 9.2/7.2 and the upcoming 9.2/7.2 SSE soundbars?
Thanks!

No hardware changes at all. The only difference is the new SSE models are priced higher so that Nakamichi can recover their R&D and licensing costs associated with the Dolby Vision/Atmos firmware development.

So getting a 7.2 bar today is the way to go then.
Thank you!

Likely “engineering judgment”, which is a term that’s often misused when someone doesn’t want to say they’re making a somewhat educated guess.







According to Nakamichi, their soundbar uses 5.725-5.875 GHz, which they say is an insudtry standard for soundbars with wireless peripheral speakers. That range overlaps with what’s referred to as “5GHz” WiFi channels 149 (5.745 GHZ) to 169 (5.825 GHz). I’m not positive, but I think those bands are somewhat unregulated for use by various consumer devices.



Sorry if this got too far off topic.
No it's not off topic for me I really appreciate the answers which I realized I actually knew most stuff but I don't know I had a curiosity moment sorry to anyone else if this was to off topic but I appreciate your answers very much thank you

Finally arrived!!!!! Review of refurbished 9.2 after a weekends use. The box arrived after ordering the system over 2 weeks ago from ebay. The appearance of the box wasn’t the best, but most importantly everything looked perfect when opening it up. The wires were clearly used as expected but the speakers themselves look brand new so I was very happy with that! I set the speakers up and popped in Saving Private Ryan and I was absolutely blown away! When this system is working properly there just can’t be a better sounding system! I am coming from the Dolby Atmos Vizio 5.1.2 which was great, but this destroys it when working properly. I really cant imagine another system sounding better!
That being said there are a few things that are driving me crazy. I am using an 18gps HDMI certified cable and connect my directv right to the soundbar but directv has audio dropouts. Sometimes you change the channel and the volume just does not work. I have to change the input source on the soundbar and then change it back to get it working again.
I have turned off all CEC features on all devices so I was able to get everything to turn on using my Logitech elite remote. If using the logitech remote, change the power on delay settings on the Logitech software to 6 seconds for this Nakamichi device. This helped everything turn on smoothly for me.
I am also having a frustrating time getting the Nakamichi to power off. Again, I am using the Logitech elite remote so when I hit the power button everything powers off except the Nakamichi at least 50% of the time.
The Nakamichi remote is an absolute joke because you have to be 2 feet in front of the system for it to work properly. A Logitech remote is a must.
