Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A very nice device to complement my AK120 Titan edition. Which brings me to the tech support I received from the Crutchfield associate who checked the docks compatibility with the Titan Edition I was purchasing. Was assured it fit perfectly. All my Crutchfield purchases have been Pleasant experiences. Thanks,

Pros: Well built dock that holds my DAC securely. The design is aesthetically pleasing.

Cons: Wish there was a color option for the AK120 Titan Edition. Still looks ok. But I think for the price this should have Been an option.

Product Research


Overview: The Astell & Kern AKS01 is a high-quality docking stand for the AK100 and AK120 digital music players. It is made of the same black brushed aluminum as the players, and has a large anti-slip rubber base. The sturdy docking stand weighs 9.2 ounces.

Adjustable Tilt Angle: The AKS01 can be used at several convenient angles, with stops at 0° (lying flat), 15°, 30°, 45° and 60° (angles are approximate).

USB DAC Function: The dock features a male Micro-USB connector, and a Type A USB connector at the end of its 38" cable. This allows you to use the DAC (digital-to-analog converter) in the player, bypassing your computer's built-in DAC for dramatically improved musical performance of your stored digital music. You can also charge the AK100/AK120 player via USB.
