Nakamichi’s wild Dragon 11.4.6 Dolby Atmos soundbar goes up for preorder this week

Nakamichi’s epic Dragon 11.4.6 Dolby Atmos soundbar, which debuted at CES 2023, will soon be available for pre-order on April 26 at 9am PT. But instead of the usual pre-order process, Nakamichi decided to make the first Dragons from the limited edition lines. It will be officially called Nakamichi Dragon 11.4.6 Home Surround Sound System 75th Anniversary World Premiere Edition, and only 500 will be made.


Nakamichi set the price at $3,499. This includes free shipping, but apparently only for US residents. A footnote on the pre-order page indicates that Nakamichi originally planned to offer international shipping as well, but had to reevaluate those plans after discovering that the shipping company logistics you use (eBay’s Global Shipping Program, for some reason) has a maximum weight and dollar. value threshold, which Zmaj exceeds by almost $1,000. I guess some dragons don’t fly.

Still, qualifying customers will not only be among the first 500 people to own a Dragon, but also get visual bragging rights. The World Premiere Edition comes with a gold embossed nameplate on the main soundtrack, a laser-engraved logo on the remote, and you’ll also get access to a behind-the-scenes digital photobook, likely giving you a glimpse into how your creation was created. awesome new toy.

Calling this a soundbar is like calling a Bugatti Veyron a car. Dragon is the world’s first 21-channel surround sound system, featuring 15 digital amplifiers, two dual-powered subwoofers, six upward-firing speakers, and two “Omni-Motion Reference Surrounds.” Digital Trends’ Caleb Denison got the chance to hear Dragon do their thing in a special invite-only listening session and was deeply impressed. Without even getting a chance to officially review it in the Digital Trends lab, he declared it “the best Dolby Atmos surround sound bar I’ve ever heard.”

Along with Dolby Atmos, Dragon is the first wireless system to feature DTS:X Pro technology, an enhancement to DTS:X that better takes advantage of channel-rich systems like Dragon. Unlike most surround speakers with drivers with fixed upward firing angles, Omni-Motion surround speakers feature height drivers that can be rotated up to 180 degrees to help you achieve the best performance for your setup. of seats and speakers.

The main soundbar also has four streams to complete the height effects. But we’re especially happy to see that it also has three HDMI 2.1 inputs with support for 4K/120 and 8K/60. They are often missing from sound bar systems and this prevents them from being a true home theater replacement.

If you want the Nakamichi Dragon but prefer to wait and see what reviewers say after giving this beast a full workout, your next opportunity will be in the third quarter of 2023. Nakamichihi did not set a date, but confirmed that the price will be the same as the limited edition – $3499. Let’s hope they find a way to send the Dragon abroad by then.
