Astell & Kern PEM13 Details

Astell & Kern PEM13 AK380 Cradle Docking Station: The perfect add-on for your AK380 player or AK320 amp

  • Sound output via balanced XLR cables
  • AK CD-Ripper Integration for ease of digital music transfer
  • USB Cable optimized for charging

The Astell&Kern AK Cradle is not merely a cradle - it's an extension of the AK380. It also fits the new AK320 Amp.

Although the previous Astell&Kern cradle was simply a charging station, the new AK Cradle for AK380 and AK320 was developed from the ground up to deliver many more features.

Balanced XLR Output
Balanced XLR Output is now possible via the AK380 Cradle. Easily output sound through your home audio system by connecting the AK380 to your favorite amplifier.

AK CD-Ripper Integration
Connect the AK CD-Ripper to the AK380 Cradle's [AK CD-Ripper Connection Port] for easy access and smooth operability. The AK CD-Ripper does not require a separate power supply when power is being supplied to the AK380 Cradle.

Connect with the AK380 and AK380 Cradle Optimized USB Cable
A USB cable created specifically for optimum cradle functionality was developed for the AK380 Cradle. The polyethylene insulation material with dual-layer outer coating delivers superior electrical insulation properties that effectively suppress outside noise interference.

Light and Shadow
The AK380 Cradle retains the 'light and shadow' design motif of the AK380, which aesthetically exposes the subtle patterns of light that play across its surfaces. The connected cradle provides a stable foundation for the AK380, and the overall design delivers a carefully crafted and unified look.

Angles of operation have been optimized for easy screen access in virtually every environment.
