The new hi-fi standard, A&norma SR25

Get the complete Astell&Kern experience from their most compact, affordable digital audio player yet - it has the power to keep you entertained all day long.

  • Quad-Core CPU paired with the Dual Cirrus Logic CS43198
  • Native playback support for DSD256
  • Ultra-high quality playback without compromise
  • Newly designed circuitry to improve sound quality enhancements
  • Bluetooth LDAC codec to give users more options for higher quality

The SR25 is an upgrade to the award-winning A&norma SR15 player, and supports native playback of DSD256 and 32-bit/384KHz PCM high-resolution audio. The SR25 features two Cirrus Logic 43198 MasterClass DACs in dual-mono configuration like the SR15, but adds a range of new features such as a faster quad-core CPU and a newly developed circuit to improve sound quality. As the first product for Astell&Kern players, the SR25 adds LDAC Bluetooth support, so users can stream 24-bit HiRe-audio to compatible speakers, headphones or IEME wirelessly. The SR25 also offers 20 hours of continuous music playback, more than twice the playback time of the SR15 and longer than any other Astell&Kern player. The unique design of the SR25 balances the user's comfort with aesthetic factors. It features an aluminium case with an ultra-precise volume wheel processed using a vibration-free process for luxurious watches. The aluminium body suppresses noise and improves sound quality, while the slim design allows the user to hold and operate the 3.6 inch touchscreen display with one hand.

Features

All day and all of the night

Despite its usefully compact dimensions, SR25 has the stamina you need for even the longest listening sessions. A playback time of up to 21 hours from a single charge is well within reach, without any compromise to the sound quality that makes Astell&Kern such a discerning choice in the first place.

Uncompromised sound

Making the unique Astell&Kern experience available to as wide an audience as possible doesn’t leave room for compromise. So SR25 features native 32bit/384kHz and DSD256 playback, thanks to its outstanding Cirrus Logic CS43198 Master Hi-Fi DAC. This kind of performance is without equivalent at the price.

The world’s music in your hand

The SR25 user interface is based on Android 9.0 - and then it’s customised to give a smooth, straightforward experience that’s unique to Astell&Kern. Integrate your favourite streaming services and internet radio stations - and then hear them at their absolute best.

Exclusive metalworking technology

Nobody else’s digital audio players perform like ours - and nobody else’s look like ours, either. That’s thanks to our incredible 5-axis machining, which processes solid aluminium billets in one uninterrupted process. So your SR25 looks and feels as good as it sounds.

Despite its usefully compact dimensions, SR25 has the stamina you need for even the longest listening sessions. A playback time of up to 21 hours from a single charge is well within reach, without any compromise to the sound quality that makes Astell&Kern such a discerning choice in the first place.

Optimised options
