I always liked to look of the CD400 Nakamichi unit.....of course out of date now but it looked good in a 944 turbo back in the day.

Nakamichi made the best of the consumer home tape decks; if their approach to car audio was similar, this could be a very good sounding unit! I didn't even know they made car radios.

I agree, though: a bit too modern. Perhaps in a 968...

Yes, defiantly 90ís styling so a 968 maybe...oh no maybe Iíve become a purist! There again I used to cringe when listers posted pictures of their 944ís with 968 mirrors and door handles, so maybe I always was a bit of a purist, lol. I just thought that they just spoilt the looks of their classic 80ís car with those rounded 90ís mirrors and handles even though they must have spent a fortune on them. Personal choice I suppose so itís all good

Installed this last weekend, replacing PO's stereo which did not mach the look of the interior.
Thoughts so far
- Much easier install than ones which include CD player as the unit is about 1/2 the depth
- Requires antenna adapter to plug in OEM antenna
- Bluetooth audio via my iPhone is great except have to press play on the phone every time after getting in car and starting.
- Bluetooth hands free is excellent, microphone cable is very long so easy to put in a good place to pick up
- Paired with a 5 channel amp, (
Alpine MRV-V500 5 Channel V Power Digital Amplifier Alpine MRV-V500 5 Channel V Power Digital Amplifier
) which accepts speaker level inputs so in my situation did not need RCA's from the head unit
- Setting up options such as clock, region, etc. is a bit wonky but once set you are good to go

There are better head units but for the price it is very good IMHO and matches interior very well

Itís just a standard single din so if it fits in any late (85.5+) 944 it should fit in all of them and the 968. Hereís some pictures from another thread which also has useful fitment and wiring details, photos are 944 and 968 day/night. I think it looks just perfect and you canít beat the price.

The 968 has the analogue clock AND the digital one? Really?

That makes more sense. Plus, there's the stopwatch feature lol (has anyone EVER used that?)
