The music library is replaced every time it scans. This happens pretty much every time the player is off for a decent amount of time. Say 24+ hours. After it scans its fine, but scan takes hours to replace all the music.
even after completing a manual scan?

I have a Problem with USB Out to a TH1ES SE100 stops casually every 2-3 minutes when playing (on all output wit apk or embedded player)
Before Hardware reset tested today with SE200 and It Is the same.
DX220 works fine, so It doesn't depend on Cable or AMP...
SA700 works also fine but the best sound and battery life Is from SE Series so please help.
Thx in advance

Astell&Kern has identified the issues users are having with the embedded Tidal app. Tidal has changed the authentication method used when logging into third-party Tidal apps. Astell&Kern is working as quickly as possible to make the required changes in the embedded app.

New firmware updates for the SP2000, SP1000, SP1000M, SE200, SE100, SR25 and KANN ALPHA will be released in May 2021, which will contain an updated embedded Tidal app to fix the authentication issues.

There is an issue with the new Tidal authentication policies on the following players – KANN CUBE, SA700, SR15, CT15 and CT10. We are looking into ways to continue to support the Tidal app on these players. More information will be available in May 2021.

Tidal is dropping support for older model Android devices. Unfortunately this means Tidal can no longer be supported on the following players due to the new authentication requirements - AK380, AK320, AK300, AK70 MKII, AK70, AK240, AK120II, AK100II.

Talking about Tidal: Does the Open Service Tidal deliver the same SQ like the built-In one? Does the device unfold MQA in the same way as with the built-in one?

^^ Like most things audiophile, currently under debate. When you can, listen for yourself and decide.
I, for some reason, find a slight softness with the Tidal app and more detail in the open service, but that makes no logical sense, and I am mad at my brain for coming to this conclusion.

Is this for music stored on the SD card? If so, is the SD card formatted in the FAT32 format as recommended in the user manual?
@JasonNYC So you are saying format in fat32 and not exfat?

Yes, FAT32 is the recommended file format. If you format the card in the player itself, it will format as FAT32.
I did so and it's in process of reloading music. Going to take 8 hours to put all my music back on.

Is there a way to stop it scanning SD card every time I turn it on. Takes 15 min to scan a 1tb card every time I turn it on.

JasonNYC, please ask the developers to make the ability to remove music right in the player. I really lack this feature.
Not sure I understand what you are asking. Individual tracks and albums can be deleted from the player when viewing in Folder view. This option has always been available on AK players since the release of the AK100 in 2012.

Tried to reinstall but no difference.
