  • Direct Control over Connected Devices

    Dedicated buttons on AK10 (play, next/previous track) can directly control audio playback of the connected device.

    Connected device playback control is compatible with iOS devices and Mac OS computers. Compatibility with Windows computers and Android operating systems may vary by the program and Windows/Android device used for playback.

    The Analog Style Volume Wheel Design inspired by Turntables

    The compact size of 2.2 inches and weight of 1.8 oz makes the AK10 a total portable solution. In addition, the design of the volume wheel design was inspired by vinyl turntables and reflects a clean & precise analog design that can also be found on other Astell&Kern devices.
