    Just received my activo today, and loving the sound on tidal masters. Wondering if the activo can be used as an external Dac on my MacBook Air with Tidal to play master tracks through my amp/receiver. If so, how would the connections be made? Thanks.

    I got a CT10, but What is the Pandora app used for this thing? I was able to get the amazon music and the TuneIn one properly, but I can't see an official Pandora one, and I don't know which is the right one to download.

    I had the same question! A+K responded by saying to backup the Pandora app on my Android phone, then e-mail the APK file to myself, then transfer the APK file to my Activo. It worked!

    Excuse my ignorance, but I don't have an Android phone; what options do I have?

    Reading the CT10 manual, there is no indication of how externally-created playlists would work (or if they are supported at all). Do M3U or PLS files play on the CT10?

    Hey, I have suffered the dreaded 3.5 jack fail with the Pioneet xdp300r so am scouting for a replacement. Just wondered what your thoughts were on build quality between the two (and any others you’ve tested around the same price range)? I don’t mind plastic but really don’t want something that breaks just through careful day to day usage. Also, is the sq and battery life comparable with the Pioneer? Any thoughts gratefully received!

    Can’t really comment on the Pioneer except that I’m afraid to even use it for fear of the headphone jacks snapping off...the CT10 is made of plastic and it’s lretty light, but at least I’m not afraid to takenitnoutnof my house. I think it’s pretty well made and I don’t have to worry about it at least.

    SQ wise I think it’s soujds perfectly good. Battery is about like Pioneer, which is to say it’s not the greatest.


    Pick up a Sony ZX300. It’s built like a tank and the battery lasts for days even using balanced out. I love my ZX300 but it’s also double the price of the CT10.

    Thanks for these! You are right to be afraid of the Pioneer. It’s ridiculous. I knew it was a problem, was ultra (ish) careful and it still failed.

    The Sony looks great but I think it’s a bit out of my price range at the moment unfortunately. I’m tossing up between the CT10 and the Fiio M9 now, as affordable but reasonable options. Fiio tend to have good build quality, although my previous one only had moderately good sq...

    CT10 over FiiO. More sonic substance. The FiiO packs a great feature set but doesn't sound as great in my opinion. It's like the Onkyo Home Cinema receivers of the portable player world.

    Happy to report the ACTIVO CT10 is officially coming to the UK! UK dealers should start receiving stock late this month/early February!
