I just rec'd my AK240 a few days ago and have been testing most of the electrical features and functions with a wide variety of sound formats most sounding fabulous without an amp. But in one regard I am very disappointed with the physical unit itself and would like some feedback from other owners on this. On the back of my unit there are several (6) bubbles deep in the clear coat near the carbon fiber itself. I am afraid it might chip on the larger bubbles over time but is smooth to the touch on the outer surface. Even worst, there is a same type bubble under the surface on the front screen, only one and is mostly noticeable with the unit turned off. I had a much higher expectation for the fit and finish in this product price range. I have the opportunity to return/exchange for about 5 more weeks and would like to hear if anyone else is experiencing similar fit and finish issues like this or am I expected to accept this is normal. I love the performance of the unit but very disappointed with the front and back surface manufacturing quality.
Yes, sent my first one back because I was absolutely discussed. Only to receive another one with the same (admittedly minor) problem in as much as the front one was not 'in my face' and very near the edge of the screen. The rear one was just 1 in number this time. A&K need to WAKE UP to this, it's appalling quality control because cannot be clarified without removing savers fitted.
Please let me know - because I'm minded (having read your comments) to send the new one back too.
