The AK380 Cradle is not merely a cradle - it's an extension of the AK380. Although the previous Astell&Kern cradle was simply a charging station, the new AK380 Cradle 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.
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. The cable is produced with a high-density braiding method to ensure excellent signal delivery.
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.
