Anyone can build a compact music system. Many companies do. But no one builds a compact music system quite like the Nakamichi SoundSpace 1! SoundSpace 1 is small enough to rest on a desk - it comes with stands that cradle each component at just the right angle to look and sound great - or you can hang its components on the wall. Each has keyholes on the back panel for just that purpose. However you use it, SoundSpace 1 attracts attention … for its good looks, sure, but more importantly for sound that belies its small size…superb sound …Nakamichi sound! SoundSpace 1's three components are matched to each other physically and electrically. At just over 6-1/2 inches on a side and less than 2-1/2 inches thick, each component is hardly larger than a stack of six CD jewel boxes … but all three are packed with performance! The main unit houses an excellent CD player, a first-rate AM/FM Stereo tuner, and all the electronics needed to run the system. Loading CDs is accomplished by the push of a button, which tilts the face of the main unit forward revealing the disk drive mechanism. Each speaker wing contains an 8-cm bass/midrange driver and a 2.5-cm semi-dome tweeter in a skillfully designed 2-way bass-reflex system that elicits optimum performance from each element. SoundSpace 1 has remarkable functionality: Bass, Treble and Midrange controls to tailor the sound to your liking, a Loudness circuit to compensate for the loss in high- and low-frequencies when you listen at low levels, even a headphone output and an alarm timer with snooze function! SoundSpace 1 can be fed from an external source. For example, the audio signal from a television, cassette deck, MiniDisc player or the like and the SoundSpace 1 can copy broadcasts and CDs to an external recorder. Analog and digital outputs are provided so CDs transfer perfectly to a digital recorder. SoundSpace 1's electronics are extraordinary! Its dual 1-bit D/A converters and 8X-oversampled digital filter are more typical of high-end audiophile gear than a music system of this genre, and each speaker's own dedicated power amplifier has been carefully matched for optimum performance. All the controls you need to operate the system lie atop the central unit but you can operate the system equally well from the stylish remote control provided with it. SoundSpace 1…wherever and whenever you need Nakamichi sound and Nakamichi looks…in miniature!
