Tried a hard reset?

 

Hard resetting is used only when the unit is frozen and unresponsive. To properly hard reset, please press and hold the ON button and the Previous track button (top button on the left side of unit) at the same time for 7+ seconds before letting go of both buttons at the same time. The timing to let go is when the screen goes dark from a frozen screen/state

Sometimes it just happens. Not often. Maybe a tagging issue or a random glitch.

Any ideas?

I've finally got this working! Turns out I did have USB 3 ports on my laptop. To resolve the lack of sound, I went into the BIOS and turned off USB3 (xHCI) so it defaults back to 2.0. When I logged back into windows and attached the AK it went through the install process again and now it works!

I'm thinking of picking up a used AK120. Did they all come with a brown Buttero leather case and is this case different from the other colored ones you can buy from A&K?

Yes it is.  However there is another aluminum bumper option in red or black for $100.
