JDM products are always better than what we get in the States, because manufacturers think Americans only care about pretty-looking things that sound mediocre, which is overwhelmingly true...one just has to look at the Ipod for that :)

i think there prices will be quite reasonable. because the fact that its japan and they care more about customers and people, than getting a big profit. If i get one sent down here, everything will be in japanese :eek:

LOL......I doubt that!! If there is one thing that is constant in this world its corporate greed. Greed has no language barriers and Japan is NO different from any other country in that regard.

I think the flagship Nak is a thing of beauty myself. But not everyone has the same tastes.

:( I have no choice but to agree with that. I wish it weren't true but there is no denying it. Its sad though. I wish this country was more cultured where SQ actually had a mainstream market instead of just a niche.:mad:



Oh, on topic those Eclipse units freakin hideous looking.

That $1700 flagship Nak is ******. The volume knob is sooo warm to the touch from the internals running, and it is just plain classy. But $1700?! Yikes man!

i personally would like a very stock looking, simple yet powerful and effective source-unit.

who really wants all those stupid animations, flashy lights and an overly chromey look and ****?? having all the control options and power plus looking very stock is a thing to really admire, i think.

besides it thwarts any ideas theives might have...or at least you would think. fukkers will take just about anything anymore.

wow, im really liking that E3305CMT with that ****, sort of aqua-teal face color...if i had a really, really expensive nice vehicle, thats the source-unit i would put in it. i dont think it would look right in a normal, economical car...

Is that even made anymore?:uhoh: Every website I've checked out shows the DCT-1 as the flagship and NO mention of a Z1.

The Japanese market is different than the US market. If the very high end, balls to the wall sq decks sold well here, they certainly would be offered. There simply is not as much demand for that type of deck here in the US.

I LOVE my RF 8250. To me, it is just about as perfect as a deck can get. I don't need, nor do I care about flashy displays, dolphins, and all of the other stuff.

Unfortunately, many American consumers equate flashy/"cool" displays and a bazillion features with "better"

Since that is the case, the manufacturers are doing what companies do........give the people what they want.

The Eclipse sound monitor stuff is what I would love to hear.

They look cool in certain cars, like mine would look awesome with one, but I'm weary of the display washing out as I have already had an Alpine I couldn't read in the sun, and now my 860. Gonna have to shell out for a Nak I'm afraid.

i konw a guy that travels all over cause he works for oakley tracking down the factories that make the knock off glasses. anyway he was in japan and asked me about that. i was a little hesitant to buy the japanese models because i am not sure if they play a japanese version cd. i know in europe our dvd's dont work in their players and their dvd's didnt work in mine. i had to get the european versions in english.

so the japanese head units only receive FM frequencies from 76.0 - 90.0MHz, how would you get this to go to the high U.S frequencies??

Actually, I didn't see that one earlier and its pretty sweet looking. I also like the Pioneer Carrozzeria on page 2 of 3. Only thing is....I would have NO use for mini disc.
