The PEM12 AK240 Dock has an upgraded cable from the S02 AK240 Dock. The USB cable used in previous models of Astell&Kern cradles has a ground line surrounded by 4 lines data and power lines tied together to avoid extraneous noise. In this case extraneous noise can be blocked, but the internal lines can exchange noise from the inside.

The data transfer lines and power transfer lines have been separated to avoid internal noise in the newly produced Astell&Kern USB cable. The 2 data lines are tied up and are shielded with a ground for the data. The 2 power lines are tied up and are shielded all together. Silver-plated OFC cable was  adopted and the cable thickness has been changed to meet each line’s purpose. More precise use of the Astell&Kern player as a USB DAC is possible with this newly adopted Astell&Kern cable.
