This weeks' system features the best of Nakamichi from the late 80's and early 90’s.
From top to bottom:
Dragon CT Computing Turntable, ST-7 Tuner, CA-7A Pre, OMS-7AII CD player, DRAGON Cassette Deck, and PA-7 amp.
Some would argue that the CR-7 is a better deck, but we thought the DRAGON looks much cooler.
The Dragon CT turntable is a pretty rare piece featuring a robotic record centering system (!) where a second arm measures the center of the record and adjusts it as needed by offsetting the platter. Quite complicated and ingenious and the sort of thing only a company like Nakamichi in their prime could pull off.
All components are made in Japan and are still working perfectly after all these years.
