I was notified last week that the Panasonic 30007 is now available. I talked about this chair a couple of weeks ago on this blog (http://www.massage-chair-relief.com/blog/chair-models/new-panasonic-massage-chair-model-coming-out-in-september/). The funny thing though is that there is very little information available on the chair. If you can believe it, there are not even any pictures or specifications available...not even on the Panasonic website! But here is a list of what I do know about this new chair that Panasonic is so proud of:
1. This chair is proudly manufactured in Japan...they are very excited about this.
2. MSRP: $5999 (but I can make it available to you for $4999 for the time being).
3. There are units available right now, in black. The first shipment came in last week.
4. Same features as Panasonic 30006, but adds wood design plate on the arms. There may be more available above and beyond the 30006, but I am not aware of those things yet. If and when I find out about any other differences, I will post them on this blog.
5. Other features include Junetsu (ultra-fine kneading) massage, shiatsu, swedish, and fist massage, 36 airbags throughout the whole chair (sole of feet, calves, seat, arm, hand, waist, shoulder), 460 square inches of total massage, auto-body scanning system, 4/6 person memory, voice guidance system, intensity/speed control, ottoman has a 5 inch extension adjustment.
Hope this helps someone out there who is looking at this massage chair.
