A specialist audio
, founded in 1948
by Etsuro Nakamichi
. Most famous for their superior quality cassette
decks, they are highly respect
ed among music fans and hifi enthusiasts. They make everything
from in car systems to CD-ROM
drives, and will always be remembered for turning Philips
cassette format into a recording medium worthy of serious hifi
More recently they have branched out into so called 'lifestyle'
hifi systems, with their Soundscape
range, to critical acclaim. Whether or not this is a good
thing depends on how much of a hifi zealot
you are. I for one own a Soundscape 8 system, and wouldn't trade it for anything.
