Astell & Kern PEM11 2nd Generation Cradle for AK100-II and AK120-II

Astell & Kern

Detailed design with a combination of light and shadow when shown at different angles takes on a different shape. The back design is reminiscent of the bridge of a string instrument. An aluminum connector provides a truly luxurious and perfect connection.

  • Feel the edge in every angle step. May be used with different tilt angles in 5 different positions.
    Not only for use as a docking station, but also for use as a USB DAC and charging station.

    The USB cable currently used in existing Astell&Kern cradles has a ground line surrounded by 4 lines data and power lines tied together to avoid extraneous noise.

    In this case extraneous noise can be blocked, but the internal lines can exchange noise from the inside.

  • The data transfer lines and power transfer lines have been separated to avoid internal noise in the newly produced Astell&Kern USB cable.

    The 2 data lines are tied up and are shielded with a ground for the data. The 2 power lines are tied up and are shielded all together. Silver-plated OFC cable was adopted and the cable thickness has been changed to meet each line’s purpose. More precise use of the Astell&Kern player as a USB DAC is possible with this newly adopted Astell&Kern cable.
