    Did the 96-97 Lexus LX450 have a Nakamichi double-din AM/FM/cassete/CD? Or did the Nakmichi premium sound system come later on the FX470?

    I'm wondering if that could be a direct replacement stereo upgrade for my FJ80.

    the 'Premium Sound' in my '96 is Pioneer throughout.

    My Bro in law has Nakamichi in his 2000

    C'dan can tell you when the Nak and Levinson started showing up.

    Nope....it says Lexus Premium Sound. 'pioneer' doesn't show up until you pull the sub from the center console. Head unit on mine indicated pioneer as well. I also think Fujitsu Ten made a unit for Lexus 96-97. the actual model / part numbers on mine were:
    KEX-P8156zt
    86120-50360
