ASK003Regular price £649.00
Astell&Kern's goal is to bring high resolution audio and their unique sound to more music lovers and the SR25, which is the second model from their A&norma premium line of Digital Audio Players, does just that with new features such as a faster Quad-Core processor, the addition of Bluetooth LDAC codec and newly designed circuitry, giving improved sound quality. Experience ultra-high resolution with the SR25's Performance Mode, which reproduces even the smallest, minute details of the original recording the artist was looking for, without compromise and automatically optimizes and sets the memory mode in the system according to the data size of the source being played.
With firmware based on the Android 9.0 operating system, the SR25 is compatible with a wide range of music streaming apps. Spotify, TIDAL, Amazon Music and Deezer are the popular titles, amongst many others. Wi-fi connectivity ensures the SR25 makes an impressive music streamer as well as Hi-Res player and with an impressive 64GB of internal memory it can store up to 625 tracks (24 bit/96kHz, 4 minute-long, 90MB)on its flash memory.
The vibration-free processing machines used by Astell&Kern are the same ones used by expensive Swiss watch manufacturers, which is reflected in the crafting of the volume wheel, processed precisely like the crown of a luxury watch for the best operating feel and the use of laser ground extension technology gives you the best sound possible, without interference or distortion.
The SR25, which is smaller than other players, features a light and durable aluminium body, with layers of various sized rectangular surfaces with added angles to invoke the sense of pulsating musical rhythm from its design. Precisely milled cuts resemble various reflections of light and create a depth of space around the volume wheel that further emphasizes the bold light reflections that are created at different angles of view on the entire player. On the back, the bold oblique cut surface of the rear glass meets the triangular shapes that surround the volume wheel. The patterns of the rear glass beautifully express the spreading of light when it is reflected off the surface. The rhythmic pattern on the rear glass will change as light is reflected at different angles. The new SR25 is ideal for one-handed operation and is a perfect fit no matter which hand you choose to hold it in. The angle of the front screen and extra space around it gives you the perfect grip when it's held. Not just beautiful but functional too.
