Nakamichi Japanese manufacturer, originally founded in 1948 by Etsuro Nakamichi (affectionally known as "the Dragon") and later headed by his sons (the famous Nakamichi brothers, Ted and Niro), originally set up to act as an manufacturer of electric household products but quickly became known as a developer and later manufacturer of quality audio products, their cassette desks where particularly well known, but in fact the company also made some spectacular other products such as the innovative record players and DAT recorders, and the company managed to amass a brand loyalty second to none. Today they are more geared toward high quality "lifestyle" systems" a la Bang & Olufsen, but they also manufacture a range of CD changers available for Hi-fi, computer or car audio use and indeed have a big in-car audio range, unusually enough parts of that range are designed and built in the USA. The company was acquired by the Grande Holdings in the 90'a but unlike other parts of that croup the Nakamichi company was run independently and with mostly the original management and design teams, company went into bankruptcy protection in 2002 but seems to have re-emerged after a reorganisation. Niro Nakamichi who was the principal designer of the company during their golden era left the corp. in 1998 to set up Mechanical Research Corp. but Ted is apparently still with the company. For background information and info on their older products you could also wisit the Nakmichi Club of Japan.
