    no issues with installing and running the trial version. I purchased a license directly from them since I cannot purchase directly from Google Play store, but to authenticate the license is pretty shady. They want you to enter your email server info and your login info so they can check your inbox for the purchase license message. I don't feel comfortable giving them full access to my email account. I am going to reach out to them and see if there are any other options to authenticate. If anyone who uses it knows and can share if there is a different way to authenticate a license purchased directly from Neutron, I'd appreciate it.

    Yes its very awkward way of validating it.
    I hope they give a 3rd option to purchase.

    EDIT:
    Other way is to create a new email account to purchase license with. And use that for them to check. I would do that.

    Installing Spotify causes a parse error. Downloaded this from apkpure and get the same problem with previous versions.

    By the way, I have successfully installed Foobar and Tidal.

    Can someone please advise which version and source to download that works.

    Spotify files in apkpure is corrupted, try a different app website.

    SR15 has a 32bit cpu, so we can only use spotify armeabi-v7a version on apkpure(Previous versions>Version w/ two variants>armeabi-v7a)

    some old version may have both 32bit and 64bit lib, so.

    BTW how can we fix the skipping issue on apps (skip too much songs when hit then next button), it's really annoying.

    Thank you so much, that was the cause as downloading the armeabi-v7a version instead it installed and ran successfully.

    Is a sad day today, my SR15 has died.

    I believe it started when I was streaming Tidal and connected to my bluetooth headphones, when the unit got very hot because of the extra work it had to support.Since then the unit cuts out and dies and even when fully charged it dies again when the battery falls below 70%.

    I guess the high operating temperature harmed the battery as they don't like heat. It looks like a design fault and do wonder if A&K did any realistic soak test before release.

    OMG they should replace for free for life as it does sound like design flaw

    @JasonNYC I just had another audio retailer contact me on behalf of a customer who is concerned about external playlists on the AK series.

    What is the latest with support for copying external playlists to the AK?

    I have not gotten an update since the last one a few weeks ago saying they are still working on it. I will speak to our dev team in Korea when they are back in the office on Monday.

    So, maybe this isn't obvious, and maybe it is...

    Its crazy to assume that music lovers are going to "manage their libraries and playlists" on the portable devices no matter how badass they may be.
    Conversely just about everyone manages these externally.

    This means that basically AK players are currently not compatible with playlists at all. It's beyond ridiculous that we're months in now with no support.

    I am certainly not a dealer, but I am getting multiple folks opting out of Astell and Kern devices for others as a result.

    @JasonNYC - is there anything on the roadmap to better facilitate tag handling? I'm really enjoying my newly purchased SR15 aside from the way the 'Album Artist' tag under the 'Artist' field is ignored. For example, a record by one artist that contains many features can add a tonne of 'Artists' to the 'Artist' sorting.

    An ideal state would be for one to be able to select which tag is observed (or better yet, a tag hierarchy) for 'Artist'. Alternatively, it would stand to reason that where a 'Sort Artist' is present in the ID3 tag, the player displays this in the 'Artist' view.

    Look forward to hearing your thoughts / anyone elses view on this one.

    Cheers
