Nice to see dead brands being resurrected to sell noname CHINESE ODM products with NO original technology. Expect them to be functional, don’t expect mind blowing technology or even good audio.

Source: I know how Hometech Digital operates – they’re a RETAIL chain based in NCR. Akai is no better than KORYO or other “private” branded products.

What the…no idea AKAI was back. Waiting for AIWA to be back as well then some day, lol. Missing the 20,000W PMPO audio blast.

Well, good news. Aiwa is actually back, and their speaker is ridiculously expensive, but the sound is fantastic as said by the reviews in Amazon(dot)in. But it was priced 44k in Amazon India lol. Check this.

Its now an American brand. They are still rehearsing Chinese stuff (no original design). The high price is to pay for the profit margin an American owner expects.

Well at least they’re giving a good quality product. The price is not bad though.

What the…lol. I thought these brands were dead & buried so deep that didn’t even bother to Google them. You deserve an AIWA salute. 😛 AIWA stuff was quite cheap then… actually so cheap that people thought these were knock-off or something. Wonder why they are selling such expensive stuff now.

My dad had an Aiwa. Model was cs 880. He got it some time in the 1980s. Bought it back in Oman when he was working there. The pic isn’t mine, I just got it off the net. We don’t know where it is now lol

Haha pretty sure this won’t be hard to find if it’s lying somewhere in a store room or attic cuz these decks were huge. Infact they kept getting bigger as audio output increased. This one is quite old. Mid to late nineties to early 2000s was a great time to buy decks as showrooms were filled with them. We actually were SONY connoisseurs so bought that (Deck With VCD player lol). Soon after that AIWA became a rage. Still SONY was good at that time . However, later on bought another SONY with DVD, USB MP3 & DIVX but the… Read more »

I feel that the moment they moved over to Sony, the quality of both sound and the instrument started degrading. Anyway, Sony isn’t worth right now. For example, in the earphones department, Sony earbuds are approx 1.5k and the bass starts distorting on poweramp. I bought these “Awei” earbuds from ebay, and the sound was fantastic. But the downside was the build quality. I had about 10+ awei earphones and most of them would give out within a month to 5 months on one side. So it was a headache. Finally I got these awei es 10TY. They’re fantastic, and… Read more »

Akai has been around for several years mostly in metro cities. The company no longer exists, various companies license the brand name and sell their own products under the AKAI name. Before 2016, Videocon was in ownership of the AKAI brand name and mostly used to sell OLD, discontinued series of Samsung and LG panels which they used to buy at bargain basement prices. Today some startup named hometech digital has acquired the rights, and will sell Chinese and Turkish TVs (Vestel) under the Akai brand name. This brand is no longer productive and poses a service risk, so I… Read more »

I don’t think any modern day buyer would even think of buying an AKAI product now, especially after reading what you’ve written. It was a trusted brand when it was popular and sold quality products but now it’s an old name which reminds you of bulky CRTs from the previous generations. Same goes for BPL. I think they are back as well but the brand sounds dated now. Grandparents still have an AKAI CRT and it still works well. We have some prehistoric family wedding AKAI VHS tapes around 30 years old and when we took them out for conversion… Read more »

Many Japanese brands have gone defunct in similar fashion. The only brands which still have Japanese R&D input are Sony and Toshiba. SHARP got fully acquired by Foxconn and Aiwa, Sansui are all shell companies selling the rights to use their name to different companies all over the world just like Akai, mostly rebranded cheap Chinese and Turkish products. Panasonic is doing the same in India – The TVs are now mostly Turkish ODM devices rebranded as Panasonic, and the Eluga mobile phones are basically ready to order phones from Chinese factories through portals like CNODMphone. Panasonic in Japan still… Read more »

Yeah, sun is setting on Japanese technology & their reputation atleast as far as electronics are concerned. Chinese destroyed their economy. SONY is not the same anymore, one repair technician told me they’ve started using Chinese components a lot and thus the quality has come down dramatically. Otherwise Japanese components were so good that even decades old capacitors can still work as new today.

That’s true. Some of the h8gh end computer motherboards still use Japan capacitors and the failure rate is very low.
