Effect Audio AKA Balance Adapter

AKA Balance Adapter is more than just an accessory, it is an experience full of surprises for audiophiles.



AKA balance adapter features a geometric cutting design combine with CNC aluminium alloy shell that is technically and aesthetically matches Astell&Kern DAP. The design, material and workmanship have also been carefully polished into an integral accessory for Astell&Kern DAP. 


 AKA uses the high-end PSquared (palladium and platinum plated) 2.5mm and 3.5mm plugs developed in cooperation with EA and Oyaide as well as the 4.4mm official socket by Pentaconn. This makeup significantly reduces the signal transmission loss and reproduce little to no distortion.


Based on the unique balanced output of Astell&Kern’s new-generation DAP, the AKA balanced adapter transmits the signals from DAP to a 4.4mm balanced plug to ensure that the audio signal is transmitted to the headphone and other devices in a fully balanced manner. The positive and negative poles of the left and right channels connect independently to their corresponding terminals. It can significantly avoid signal crosstalk and improve the separation of the two channels which generates purer signals and comprehensive earphone performance.


Astell&Kern: SP2000, SP1000, SA700, KANN CUBE, KANN, SE100, SR15, SR25, AK380, AK70, AK240, AK120Ⅱ, AK100Ⅱ, etc., and portable DAP with 2.5mm balanced output with 3.5mm single-ended socket.

    Perfect Add On

    practically solved connection issues with my SP1000M and AK240 Blue Note. the 2.5mm to 4.4mm adapters are alright but since the 2.5mm jack of the player is quite small, it is prone to getting damaged from being constantly used and abused. this was the solution. plus, i get powerful yet smooth sound quality. highly recommended, if you'd love keeping your old AK gear.
