    Hi. Does Spotify work on this dap?

    Thanks Jason. I appreciate you being so proactive in this thread!

    If there was a way to install apps even if unofficially supported, I'd give this device a go. It's the whitelisting/blacklisting that is stopping me from trying. Am I right to understand that even if I extract the APK off my own device and attempt to install via OpenAPP on the CT10, it would be blocked?

    Thanks. I have an ak se100 for home use. Maybe this is the ideal work option. What size micro SD will it take?

    Based on the lack of response, I'm going to assume the answer is "no, there is no ability to create arbitrary playlists from external sources, which is a thing every MP3 player supported ten years ago."

    Unfortunately, there is not. All apps must be on the approved list. Due to the limited resources, memory and CPU power, all apps are tested before being approved in order to make sure they do not affect the overall functionality of the player. This is also done to prevent any apps that may cause other issues with the player from being installed and slowing down the player or UI. All apps are tested before being approved. Also, there are certain Android apps that require Google Play Services and a valid Google Play Store installed on the device for DRM and authentication purposes. Since this player does not allow access to the Google Play store, apps that require it for authentication purposes will not work - for example - Apple Music, Google Music, YouTube, etc.

    Yes, the player supports both m3u and pls playlists. However, there is a bug with external playlists that was introduced with the addition of the Open App service that allows additional streaming apps to be added to the player that affects certain external playlists from working correctly. This is being worked on by the software team and will hopefully be fixed in a future firmware update.

    The CT10 and all AK players will support up to 2TB microSD cards. Current largest microSD cards readily available in retail are 512Gb cards. We recommend formatting as FAT32 for best results.

    Awesome. That puts the Activo pretty high on the wish list. It would be #1 with no doubt if it had a podcast mode. Thanks.

    Got mine currently playing through the ALO Continental V2 into some Ultrasone XDPs. It's breathtakingly good. slam, depth and just soooo fun! It's brilliant on its own as well. I've got folk on another thread telling me it can't sound better than my old Pioneer XDP300r because the Pioneer is more expensive. Well, to my ears it blows the Pioneer out of the water in terms of bringing my music to life, and the eq's - which I normally don't use - work great. My only gripe is the battery life, which is kind of average. Overall am a very happy camper. First DAP since my Cowon days I've owned and loved on its own merits, not just stacked with an amp...

    Its significantly better than my XDP100r that's for sure. I love the CT10 immensely

    Yes, price sometimes is not meaning always better. There are some albums - not only a few track - of a male singer in my country expressed much better on ct10 than sp1000 when listening on kse1500.
    Treble of ct10 has more spark and fast attack than sp1000 while on sp1000 it is bright and abit grainy.
    Mid of sp1000ss some times need to be thickening for a touch of the heart. CT10 can do it.
    Ofcouse ct10 is not clarity as ak120ii and ak120ii still sounds rough in compare to sp1000.
    But ct10 is some where between them: have musicallity and clarity/detail.

    Battery is quite short when MQA playing and just average when standard flac playing.
    Heat up a bit in some case.

    OT : ct10 use dac chip cs4398, I think it will not has musical of akm4490 but actually it sound like akm4490, 4497 : have low bass extend well but keep a little thicker mid, flashing treble of 4398 .
    Cs4398 on ak120ii and also some iphones, have not low bass extendtion while mid bass is fast and solid kick. So, may be something tuned on ct10 for a musical sounding
