DESIGN

The exterior design shows the identity of Astell&Kern and is designed with an image that portrays powerful performance and a great ergonomic fit in the hand.
The processed octagonal pillar-shaped aluminium main body is adorned with a diagonally sloping surface.

The character side presents the design identity of Astell&Kern and prevents slipping of the device. The uni-body design that finishes the fit at the rubber pad is attached to the player allowing for a seamless design that does not reveal the parting lines to the player.

The delicately processed volume wheel is one unit that is recessed in the body of the product and the control part and volume identification part are separate. This prevents users from unintentionally operating the volume wheel and allows for visually checking the current output level whilst simultaneously controlling the volume.
The rubber pad on the front allows the audio player and AK PA10 to stay together without movement and vibration when they are bound together with the supplied rubber bands. Additionally, we added a 3D textured pattern that is inspired by the logo of Astell&Kern for a touch of luxury.

The side switches are indicators to let users know the setting of each function intuitively whilst adding to the overall robust and distinctive industrial design of the AK PA10.
