Any love for the Activo CT10?

    @tezla7 thank you for the detailed PM. I responded back to your PM with more info.

    From what you described, that is not normal on the CT10. We do apologize for the issues. I sent you info on options to get that repaired/replaced.

    I also apologize for the response on the ALAC/m4a question. You are correct that iTunes saves ALAC files as m4a and the CT10 does support and will play back those files without issue.

    AFT can be very temperamental when trying to transfer large amounts of data. It's best to break it up into smaller amounts at the same time, use a different program (Commander One Pro is highly recommended by most Mac users in these forums for Android-based DAPs) or you can use a microSD card reader and copy the files directly to the microSD card. Once the card is inserted into the CT10, the player will index the music and all will be accessible by artist, album, genre, etc.

    We are currently looking into other program options for Mac users since Apple will probably not natively support Android devices anytime soon.

    Yes, I apologise, 99 percent of the time AFT is all that's required to sort the file transfer issues from Macs. The light leak is visible on my unit too hence me guessing what you were talking about. I only noticed it however when in the dark. I can't see it when it's daylight.

    I was listening to it at length yesterday and I have to say that it just gets better and better. Does get pretty warm though. Glad they didn't make it of metal. Lol

    Now available from amp3 in the uk for those interested. Would get one but I suppose there is no audiobook/podcast support? Does it have any resume features at all?

    £224.10 using Discount Code STAY10 (code may change)

    I emailed AMP3 months ago to recommend they stock the CT10. You get £50 from them if they stock something on your recommendation. I don't doubt that they obtained it through their A&K contacts but £50 off a new DAP would've been nice, not gonna lie :stuck_out_tongue:

    I'm hoping more UK stock arrives this week. More people in the UK need this player in their arsenal

    Hi @JasonNYC, purely from spec and shape, this seems quite similar to original AK70. Do they share some DNA?

    Just downloaded the firmware update to Version 1.11. A list of new features flashed briefly on the screen. I went to the Activo website to review the list again but I can't find it. Am especially interested in the "CD Ripper" and "CD Library" features. Does anyone know where to find details about V 1.11?
     
  9. lukeslens
    Would like to know this as well. Google isn't being particularly helpful on this. @JasonNYC may know.

    My guess (and it’s just that) is that the new firmware adds support for their hardware CD Ripper product, which allows you to directly connect to supported Astell&Kern players to rip CD’s to WAV or FLAC directly to the player with no need for a computer.

    Firmware 1.11 features:
    Added CD Ripping function by AK CD-RIPPER / AK CD-RIPPER MKII

    - Added CD Player function (Supports MQA-CD playback)

    Possible to play Music CD via AK CD-RIPPER / AK CD-RIPPER MKII

    - Added new services to Open App Service(DS Audio / Deezer APP service)

    - Improved other operational stability

    I want to recommend adding a Plex app.

    .How does Activo ct10 compared to Hiby R3? Offline streaming service feature on Activo is a huge temptation but on the other hand Hiby R3 is on my mind for a long time. End of the day which one is better on soundwise? Which one provides more than Iphone 7 with its dongle?

    CT10 is way more involving than the R3. I can really relax and enjoy the music on the CT10 and tbh I think it sounds better than the Kann.
