Request A Price Match

Big things come in small packages. The Astell&Kern Activo CT10 might be the smallest, least expensive digital audio player (DAP) in the A&K stable, but it’s jam-packed with features that deliver a stellar audio experience. 

Stunning Sample Rate 

Simply speaking, the higher the sample rate of a song, the better quality the music. A CD’s sample rate is 16bit/44.1kHz. The CT10 can play up to 24bit/192kHz. That’s *checks notes* a lot better. Warning: your pleasure center will explode. 

The Most Portable Astell & Kern. Period. 

At 3.9oz and 3.67” on its longest side, the CT10 is simply the most portable portable in the Astell&Kern lineup. But just because it’s small doesn’t mean that it skimps on battery life or storage space. You’ll be able to enjoy a combined 400GB of music for up to ten hours a charge. 

Fetch the Bolt Cutters

Free yourself of wires with the CT10, whose Bluetooth support allows quick and easy pairing with wireless headphones, earbuds, or speakers. WiFi support enables reliable streaming and access to NAS drives from across the room or across the house. 

Equalize to Perfection

Everyone’s tastes are different. That’s why the CT10 features a customizable 10-band EQ plus eight pre-set filters, including Flat, Pop, Club, Rock, Classical, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Bass Boost. 


Would you die a little if we told you that MP3 files deliver just 10% of original studio recordings? That’s one-tenth of the nuance, depth, and richness that the artist intended for you to hear. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) files, on the other hand, deliver the full, uncompressed sound of the original master recordings in all their richness. The Activo CT10 supports this technology, allowing you to listen to the best version of your favorite music. 

Open App Service 

There’s an ocean of music out there, so why limit yourself to your own library? With Asterll & Kern’s Open App Service, users can install APK music screaming apps such as Tidal, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, Apple Music, SoundCloud, and more to their devices. Open the (streaming) floodgates!
