Well for me AK120 is small enough to goes into my pockets.  HOWEVER, my big fat ugly HM901 can really use one of these.  Any chance you can ask them if they might want to make one for 901?  The ones chinese DIYer made while usable, look pretty HIDEOUS....



This is really pretty...NOT

I had given up completely on the AK120 stock brown case and will order the Dignis (non flip one) the minute it comes.  

The 901 case... wait till you see the back....

AK120 becomes surely hot (in DSD mode).
In that case, I'll stop using the leather case of Astell&Kern not VanNuys (becase leather case retains the heat, I think).

I wonder if there is some sort of case that could be used to resolve this? What about silicone? My DX100 didn't seem to have issues with heat while in its silicone case....

Just saw this surfing around on the net. Sounds like a new docking station coming for AK100 and AK120 in August. Here's the link and there are pictures of the dock at the link:

I asked them about this a while back maybe they should hire me for their product development team :D

The best one would be a thick alu case that act like a heat sink biggrin.gif.

That would surely scratch up the housing (rub a dub dub :P)....

I understand this is really apples and oranges but how does the AK120 compare in SQ to the Meridian Explorer??

The explorer costs $299 and a Macbook starts at $999.....

Help.........My MBP does not recognize any of the drives on my unit. I am pressing 'connect removable disk' All songs on all three drives are visible and I've rescanned the library. Restarted a few times did a hard reset holding top pwr button and top button on the side. It plays fine, shows full charge.

What to do?
