    I believe it’s a memory card problem. I formatted mine and it was gone.

    Same here, got the same message with a SE100, formatted and everything went back to normal. Btw, you can continue to use the se card like that, the message comes out only when you turn on the player.

    If ECT told your friend that, it is unacceptable. If there is an issue, they should repair or replace it under warranty and not be “applying black tape” to it. Is your friend on Head-Fi? If so, can you please have him/her PM me?

    JH Audio used to (still does?) send out little stickies with a hole in the center to place over the 240SS 2.5 port (got some with my long gone Angie). At least it wasn't black tape. :)

    I have the SS and no never had that come up with mine.

    I'm not sure I've ever found the answer but from what I gathered, the answer is 'no, apple music is not supported'?

    Just realised that today is 10 years on Headfi.org for me.
    Happy Birthday to myself :)
    I am hoping that A&K will release a high end portable music player at Munich in may with the 4.4 balanced.

    No, Apple Music is not supported. It requires a valid Google Play Store install for authentication and AK players do not have Google Play Store installed.

    AK SP1000 driving a STAX SR009 thanks to Kingsound M-03 Portable Amp. Very very good sound. Even Jude was surprised by the result ! :beyersmile:

    I shortened the looooong cable to make the SR009 more portable...

    Happy birthday my friend...

    YES, a new Super-High End A&K, will be welcome. Something like the Sony DMP-Z1, but with (1) Wifi Streaming, (2) a larger tiltable screen, (3) A Real Line out, (4) 2 Tb SSD inside.... will be a very good surprise :)

    Thank you, good to see you around. Coming to CanJam London in the summer? I would like to see A&K coming with a big music player, like a Hugo 2, around 450 great, huge battery inside and to accept SDXC, streaming, 4.4 mm jack, digital out.
    Is possible to make something like it.:)

    Has there been any progress with this?

    The last update from our Friday team meeting was that the engineering team is still working on a fix, but no ETA was provided for when that may be ready. Just that it was going to take some time.

    It is true that this amp lacks a resistor, and without this it can fry your Stax??

    Or...this was only BS??

    Very nice setup by the way!

    Not desirable for me; I don't need a desktop size unit from AK. The SP1K is almost perfect for me.
