    HI all. I have just joined Head-Fi after finding a lot of really useful info here over the last weeks while I was researching my first "good" headphones and my first DAP since the $40 Sandisk MP3 player and $15 buds that I bought a good 10 years ago. Anyway, in the last couple of days I have received my CT10 DAP and so far find it to sound wonderful with my Beyerdynamics 770 Pro Limited edition 80 Ohm phones. I have spent quite a few hours learning my way around the CT10 reading the manual and uploading a lot of Classical music using Exact Audio Copy, most of which is from multi-CD box sets of a particular conductor or composer. Some, like my Mozart "The Symphonies" collection have several symphonies with multiple movements each on a single cd.

    I cannot seem to find a way to make these play in order. I do not have the random play switch turned on, so that's not the problem. I cannot find any type of sort mechanism to help. I'll get the first movement from the 5th symphony, then one from the 6th and then one from the 7th and then maybe the 3rd movement from the 5th, etc. Each CD was ripped as a whole and each track is titled properly with symphony, movement name, movement number, etc.

    I have probably missed some detail in the ripping of the CDs using the EAC software or something in the playback settings.

    Any help for a newbie to sophisticated DAPs?

    Well, never mind. It seems to have fixed itself. Perhaps a reboot after playing with the random feature was needed. Tracks seem to be playing in proper order now.

    Sorry for the bother.

    Hi,

    My CT10 is gathering dust, basically because it does not support Tidal (or Qobuz reliably) offline music, so isn't very portable or convenient for my streaming setup compared to my LG V30 phone which does support offline Tidal/Qobuz music playback :). My question is are there any plans to implement offline playback with Tidal? (The Qobuz app offline is buggy). If not that's a shame as the CT10 could have been a very good portable player if it were'nt (third party software) unable to play Tidal/Qobuz music offline. Kind of sucks, listening to a great track on Tidal,step outside the front door & the player goes silent :frowning2:.

    The embedded Tidal app does not support offline mode, but if you download the Tidal APK, you can do offline mode via the app.

    Ok then, How 'bout the closet sound signature IN the AK range? Is the CT10 similar to AK Jr? 70? 120? 300? After all this is coming from the Mother company iRiver-the great mp3 player of the '90s - '00....

    to be honest, CT10 is a step aside from typical A&K signature, I didn't test AK Jr and models older than AK70-2, but in the modern lineup, I can't name any model that reminds me CT10. Probably, SR15 is the "closest one", but it' s still pretty far from CT10

    It would be very similar to the AK100 II. Uses the same single CS4398 DAC and similar internals in a smaller form factor and updated UI.
