Review: Soundbar Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2Ch

The Nakamichi Shockwafe 9.2 soundbar has a fairly unique style. It is completely black, with very small silver accents and is available in an unusual shape for a soundbar. There is a metal grille that covers the front and side speakers, while the rest of the bar is covered with plastic.
The Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2Ch is a fairly unique soundbar system. It has a 9.2.4 speaker setup with two wireless subwoooers and four dedicated surround rear speakers. It offers an immersive listening experience, especially with Atmos content. This soundbar can become very noisy, although some compression artifacts can be heard in the bass range at a maximum volume. Unfortunately, it has a dark sound profile with stereo content and looks pretty excited about surround content. On the plus side, it has a lot of HDMI ports and can be used as a hub for your different devices and has a lot of different settings to help you make it look the way you like.Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2ChThe Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2 has many physical inputs. It has three HDMI In ports, so it’s easier for you to use your soundbar as a hub for all your devices. You can also connect an AUX cable, ideal for parties where people want to play their music without going through the Bluetooth pairing process.

DTS:X offers individual sounds anywhere in your room and moves them into 3D space, even above you. With older formats, sounds only move from front to back and left to right, but not up and down like DTS:X.Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2Ch

Nakamichi Shockwafe 9.2 soundbar is very good for music. The stereo frequency response of this soundbar is quite warm, which may not be ideal for all music genres. It has bass overemphasized which is ideal for heavy bass music, and can get quite loud, although some compression is audible at maximum volume.

Decent soundbar for mixed use. This soundbar has a warm sound profile with overrated bass and lacks a bit of detail, which isn’t ideal for most music genres and dialogue. However, when viewing Atmos content, such as movies, it offers immersive listening thanks to its unique 9.2.4 speaker setup.Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2ChHigh-quality soundbar for dialogue.
