Does anyone on here have the Nakamichi Soundwafe Pro? It gets some great reviews but it doesn't look like there is a UK stockist.

Us only, Nakamichi the brand withdraw from these shores many years ago. It was a high end Japanese brand, but ran into hard times and the name was purchased by a chinese company some 20 or so years or ago.

I have one here in the U.S. It's an unknown gem! I compared to Sonos Arc and frankly the Nak is way clearer and comparable SS. I have the 7.1.4 unit.
supposed to be the Dogs but not available here in Europe. The fact it is lightyears better than a Sonus is no revelation, they rely on a loyaly customer base to purchase what ever they choose to offer, bit like bose in years gone by.

This pic is from Best Buy - all sold out....and there are no demos in the BB stores! These are only sold online through BB or Amazon - the only Nak channels to purchase!

I had the sound wafe 7.1.4. I live in the US. I thought it was good, better than the Sonos surround setup for sure. It’s a little thin on the mids, and does not have any upfiring drivers. It uses simulated height fx, which it does pretty well at. The rears on the nakamichi are very active. Definitely more than the q90r I have now. I bet the 9.2.4 is very immersive. I think the q90r sounds better overall, and handles Atmos/DtsX content a little better. It’s not dramatically better, but the q90r seems a bit more full and accurate with object based sound. Not necessarily a dealbreaker, but I don’t think the sound wafe is that nice to look at. I’ve seen an occasional mention of nakamichi releasing a new soundbar soon, but I don’t think it’ll come before next year
