difference in sound.

The stainless steel chasis of the new AK240 solves the issue of grounding which is one of the factors that can dramatically affect the sound of your hifi equipment. The original AK240 has a limited ground area due to its Duralumin body. Stainless steel, being an inert metal, provides more ground points on a larger area leading to improvement in sound quality over previous iterations.

Includes new French Leather Case made from Tannerie Rémy Carriat that pairs well with this unique stainless steel edition of the AK240.
