What’s the difference

Audio Features

These soundbars come with a complete audio entertainment experience with multiple built-in channels.

As for sound quality, Nakamichi shochwafe Ultra (with 9.2.4ch & 1000W output) and Elite (with 7.2.4ch & 800W output) are the best options among all three, as they both come with dual wireless subwoofers and wide range of powerful speakers, in-built deep bass.

And additionally, come with separate rear speakers (wireless) + subwoofer (wireless), which support Dolby atoms, Dolby digital audio, True HD, DTS:X for real 3D surround sound.

Plus both have Dolby atoms, Dolby digital, Dolby TrueHD and DTS 3D surround sound audio features.

Personally, I feel like Nakamichi is the king of soundbar in terms of sound quality, I mean tell me any soundbar which can produce up to 1000W audio output with two 10ich wireless subwoofers, except Nakamichi Ultra.

While Shockwafe has the lowest audio output 600W and only comes with single subwoofer.

Subwoofer & Speakers

It’s interesting to compare, all three Nakamichi models come with different separate subwoofers and bass output.

Where Nakamichi Pro comes with single 8inch wireless subwoofer, Elite comes with TWO 8inch subwoofers.

But on top of both is Nakamich Ultra, which comes with TWO 10inch wireless subwoofers, which gives way more powerful bass from this model.

Connectivity & Controls

Apart from it’s price, audio and subwoofer, every connectivity options are same for all three soundbars, plus there’s the only way to control the soundbars with big size 52 keys backlit remote controller.
