I'm really digging the sound on this CT10! When I first started it up and started playing music I was less than impressed with the bass. I don't know if this thing burned in or if I just finally got a got seal on my Miles Davis Trumpets, but I find the bass to be perfect now. Right now I'm pumping Fleetwood Mac's Rumors album through it via Tidal Master and wow! This album is always my go to for evaluating new gear and this little DAP doesn't disappoint. It's almost criminal that this device doesn't support downloading with Tidal though. That's my only major complaint with the device. The device also is not capable of gapless playback with Tidal MQA tracks, but honestly, most devices struggle with this on Tidal MQA tracks. I suppose Tidal MQA tracks are working this things processor to it's limit. It does get quite warm when streaming Tidal MQA tracks.
