”By squeezing even more performance out of its entry-level player, Astell & Kern has almost guaranteed that the SR25 is a winner.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 Product of the Year.

Award-winner made better

It’s not easy improving upon a class-leader, but that’s just what Astell & Kern have done with the A&norma SR25. A faster, Quad-Core processor and newly designed circuitry give improved sound quality. Native support for DSD256 is now standard for enhanced quality with DSD files. The addition of Bluetooth LDAC improves the quality of wireless sound through compatible headphones. Finally, the new Performance Mode optimises playback.

Quad Core and Dual DACs
Featuring a new Quad-Core CPU, the SR25 has the power to get the most from your Hi-Res music files. Hi-Fi quality, Cirrus Logic Master HiFi DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) provide the SR25 with exceptional resolution. Meeting the highest standards for sonic precision, the DACs guarantee a reference level of sound. Using one DAC for the left channel and another for the right, the SR25 offers channel precision and stereo imaging that's well beyond most rivals.

Flexible format player
There are many HD Audio recordings already available to download online and you may already have started a collection on your computer or NAS drive. Where the SR25 really scores is being able to take those recordings with you - in the highest quality possible. The SR25 supports a wide range of file formats, including WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP3, OGG, APE, AAC, ALAC, AIFF, DFF, DSF and MQA.

Native DSD256 support
With native DSD support now at DSD256, the SR25 offers a big step-up from the DSD64 native support offered by the SR15. As an alternative to PCM sampling, many of the large music labels, including Sony, support DSD files. DSD is renowned for its huge dynamic range, ‘inky’ quiet backdrop and subtle detail that gives music ‘life’ and realism.

Performance Mode
Making the most of high quality files, the new Performance Mode optimises the player’s memory allocation according to the size of file being played. This helps minimise data loss, meaning you get to hear every subtle detail of music. Combined with the improved circuitry, it makes the SR25 a more revealing player than ever. Simply put, if it’s on the recording, you’ll hear every note.

Connect to your wireless headphones with Bluetooth LDAC
Bluetooth LDAC enhances the quality of a Bluetooth connection for more detailed and dynamic sound. Pair with compatible headphones, such as Sony LDAC models, and enjoy a much more detailed sound than standard Bluetooth connectivity.

Improved battery life
With a battery life of around 21 hours, the SR25 doubles the 10-hour life of the previous SR15 model – making it much more convenient on longer trips away. Charging time is around 2.5 hours.

Store it all - 64GB internal memory and now with support for a massive 1TB
With 64GB of internal memory, the SR25 stores about 625 tracks (24 bit/96kHz, 4 minute-long, 90MB) songs on its flash memory. With the addition of a micro SD card, this can be increased by up to a massive 1TB – enough for a lifetime’s collection of music.

Support for balanced headphones
With its 4-pol, 2.5mm headphone socket, the SR25 is ideal for use with balanced headphones. Using a balanced signal between the source and headphones reduces noise and interference and is especially handy on the move. A standard 3.5mm unbalanced socket is also standard.

Android 9.0 operating system
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.

If you love music on the move, you’ll find the Astell & Kern SR25 provides you with the detail your smartphone’s been missing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astell and Kern SR 25 I had ori6 ordered a Cowon D3 but because there was a shortage of chips to wit was extended and I felt March was too long so I upgraded to the Astall & Ker as it was in stock and I new the product as I herd a previous model and had s number of Iriver players wi h I still have and have brilliant sound.this model has 2 dacs and bluetooth.equaliser to get the exact sound you want.quality made,solid aluminium with a lovely volume control.used Bluetooth headphones and had a stutter when laying back downloads.changed to wired Grados so think it was headphones. Caught the divery guy out front luckerly ad he was delivering to my neighbours who had just sold the house and the house was vacant,don't know why there address was on the order.?.anyway have bought an awful amount of products from Richersounds as the service is always 1st class. Recommend product even though its not cheap but worth it fir the sound and build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, really stylish and sturdy I've only had the product a week so still working my way through all the features but very impressed with what I have seen up to now. Everything about it shouts quality from the stylish look with the silver body contrast to the black screen and the matching jog wheel. The basic sound is excellent but with all the additional optional choices, which I have still to master,to make it even more dynamic. The other thing I noticed on its arrival was the way it feels, not overly heavy, but a substantial build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound quality and build of the SR25 is amazing The first part of my review is for the the quality of the product. Its Astell and Kern. It already confirms its quality. The sound quality and options of Bluetooth codecs covers all my needs. Great little DAP. The second part of the review is for Richersounds. Quick delivery. I made the mistake of not navigating the Web page for the free case. Once contacted, Richersounds sent me out a case free of charge. I have only good to say. All my audio equipment comes from them. Thank you Richersounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A&Norma SR25-BRILLIANT My old Cowon S9 was becoming unreliable and after many weeks of deliberation I decided the A&K sr25 was probably the player for me. I’m happy with the choice, over 3000 Flac files that were copied to a micro SD card via an iMac were recognised within seconds. At nearly 70 years of age my sense of hearing is unfortunately not as good as when I was young. The sound quality from the sr25 has far exceeded my expectations through Meze 99 Classics or wired Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones. Using the Sonys with Bluetooth is also remarkably good. I have not experienced signal breakup when using them in that mode within my home. The player has a solid feel about it, the control buttons are easy to feel and operate even when the player is in its case. I have yet to use many of the player’s other facilities but am I pleased with my choice? OH YES!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and sound. I was already aware of the quality of Astell & Kern equipment and after research found the best price for the A&norma SR25 at Richer Sounds with the added bonus of a free case. Intuitive to set up Bluetooth, Network and to transfer files from my Apple iMac using Android File Transfer. Also very easy to download  and set up Open APP Service .apk apps. Care should be taken to download the correct .apk file as documentation may not refer to the latest supported version. My one small criticism of the A&norma SR25 is the power switch is too sensitive if accidentally touched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound I wondered about buying a portable hi res device for a while and saw this about £100 cheaper than I expected and bought. I have been blown away by the sound. In addition it is very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer I bought this player to get some high quality music on the go and the 'detach' from phone notifications / streaming apps (although this can be used for streaming). This player delivers exactly what I wanted - great sound and excellent build quality.
