AK120 generation 2 reexamined from the PCB layout to form factor, material, and post process to have ‘performance’ and ‘design’ of product in perfect harmony. The space for battery is maximized after transferring the location of the volume knob, and it is convenient to operate the volume knob when using the product with both hands simultaneously. The aluminum body and protector of AK120 generation 2 are overlapped two layers. A hairline and diamond cutting postprocess were applied to the first aluminum body layer. It makes the most of the material and brings dignity emphasizing heavy touching of music played by Astell & Kern. The second layer protector, on the contrary, symbolizes delicate features of the AK sound quality. . Carved on the protector are three exquisite lines without a hitch suggestive of string instrument. AK120 generation 2 applied the exclusive pattern of Astell & Kern to the rear glass unlike its predecessor. The pattern used A logo of Astell & Kern for design to deliver value of craftsmanship.
