    No issues with 512GB cards. We recommend formatting as FAT32 for best results.

    Thank you. This thread helped me decide to buy the Activo ct10. It’s the the first DAP that I’ve bought since an IPod Nano. I am really enjoying the Activo. I upgraded headphones for a better experience. The blue tooth for my Jabra Elite 65T would cut out (happens on my Galaxy S8, too) and the sound was, of course, thin. Much better were the Sony 1000xm2. But the Astell and Kern Billie Jean IEMs arrived yesterday. These sound great. Paired with Activo CT10, I now remember how good music can sound and just how enjoyable listening to music is.

    Only one question: Is Deezer still in the list of open app?

    Thank you in advance for the answer.

    Sadly, my Activo’s headphone jack stopped working. It started to make a random shorting out sound. I thought it was a damaged headphone cable, but it was not. Then, it stopped putting out sound all together. The Bluetooth still outputs. Unit is dead after a week. Luckily, I purchased from Amazon, so not too much of a hassle to get a replacement. Hope the new unit lasts a bit longer. But, I am concerned with build quality.

    Anyone k ow how to roll back the latest firmware? I'm not enjoying the sound after the update. Took away all the mids and bass.

    anyone running the JH Billie Jean IEM with the Activo CT-10?
    Any suggestions for a comparable IEM or is the match up to get the best tailored experience?

    I use the Billie Jeans with comply foam tips. I really enjoy them, and the foam tips made a huge improvement for me.

    Agreed, I’d like to know too, current firmware really took away the mid and bass

    After a few days I've slowly (though not completely) warmed up to the new tuning. The update provided massive vocal clarity that can be overwhelming especially if you have bright sounding headphones/iems. Sets that are Balanced Armature only and gear that is already treble focused is difficult to enjoy after the update, however, dark sounding gear or anything bass heavy sound fantastic. My main gripe is that when vocals are playing it is difficult to focus on anything but the vocals. The soundstage shrunk and the ability to hear subtle nuances like the plucking of guitar strings is completely overwhelmed by the vocals which are now not just front and center, but are INSIDE your head. It is a weird sensation especially coming from the flawless tuning prior to the update. I am not at selling point yet, but hopefully an Activo rep reads this thread and they are able to revert to a more balanced sound signature.

    I recently bought an Activo CT10 primarily for when I am out with the dog.
    However I am pleasantly surprised how good it is at home with my old Shure 846. The dlna function with my NAS actually works better than my SP1000. Wifi on my SP1000 is pretty awful with very limited range.
    Ok it isn't as good as SP1000 with KSE1200 but its very good value and quite fun for just 209 pounds

    I'm considering between this and the m0

    With the streaming function, can you download music for offline use in streaming apps which normally support it on phones?
     
  15. TYATYA
    Sure. That's it
