Astell&Kern Fields its $299 Activo CT10 Player at CanJam NYC
Among the products featured by high-res audio player brand Astell&Kern at CanJam NYC 2019, the consumer headphone and headphone-related products show held Feb. 16 and 17 at the Manhattan Theater District-located Marriott Marquis Hotel, were models that ran the gamut from the $2,999 A&Ultima SP1000M to the $299 ultra-compact, palmable ACTIVO CT10, its first such device under the ACTIVO banner. It is powered by the company’s TERATON sound module.
The ACTIVO CT10 features 16GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot supporting up to a 400GB microSD card. It has a volume knob that gives the listener the option of setting volume that way or by scrolling it up or down on the screen.
It supports high-resolution audio playback up to 24-bit/192 kHz PCM and double-rate DSD (converted to PCM), MQA and Tidal Masters, and the CT10 can play back any high resolution, lossless or lossy audio formats.
