    Astell & Kern SR15: A&norma Impressions & Reviews

    Curious if anyone has their SR15 connected to a Tesla? I have a Model 3 on order and it supports USB connectivity (and Bluetooth) but though it would be pretty great if my collection were to appear as a standard option so to speak. I could never get my unit to show itself in our 2017 Mercedes...

    I actually went into mp3tag and updated album artist to fix this.

    I'm using the Campfire Comet which has been a great pair IMHO. Not too expensive and very well built.

    Terrific - thanks!! I had some prior issues (another brand) with exfat so I'm all in on FAT32 now. ;)

    Is it possible to load a 512 microsd card or is the 400GB limit real? I'm not exactly suffering here with plenty on my card, but saw the larger PNY card is on sale at BestBuy...

    I went with the Campfire Comet which definitely seem to punch above their weight and am already wondering where to go next. My Sennheiser HD6XX in balanced mode is awesome too. The SR15 is seriously good!

    But MQA tracks you might have on the SD card work outside of Tidal too as rare as they might be.

    You can definitely move the button. Mine is a bit higher now which helps. I completely agree about the case. I love having on there but find it’s really a challenge to get the menu to pull down.

    Today my balanced cable for the HD 6xx arrived and aside from a quick test on the mytek brooklyn dac+ (amazingly good) I also used a 4-pint to 2.5 cable to test the SR15 and it's super sharp this way. While not practical in a truly mobile context, it's pretty great for moving around the house...

    Is there some trick to locating the Tidal "My Mix 1" Playlist on the AK Tidal app? Can't seem to find it ...

    Shanling M5s now with TIDAL - Dual AK4493EQ DAC, fully balanced, Wi-Fi, 2way LDAC BT, 3.2 Touch screen, FW 3.5

    I purchased the Campfire Audio Comet at the same time (though I returned the Shanling) and it sounded great. I'm very happy with the CA Comets ... ~200 bucks.

    So I've been playing with mine between Campfire Comet IEMs in balanced mode (Fiio cable) and Sennheiser HD6XX SE mode. I just switched the Campfire cable back to the stock SE (copper Litz) and I can't believe how much better things sound. The stage is considerably wider and tonally deeper now...

    Mine would not complete the index to update the library. Also as noted previously here the write time on the same selections took about 2x as long to complete vs FAT32. Whatever works .. but for me going forward any potential new card will be formatted to FAT32 right away.

    Totally. I’m fine with an app and obviously used one to get there but there wasn’t anything for the media player either in the limited docs there.

    Right on - yeah the only price competitor I think is the not the WM 1A, but the ZX300. In the end though having a few extensible bits like Tidal and soon Roon put me towards the AK and I'm very pleased with the decision!

    Went back into NYC today and swapped myShanling M5s for the SR15. This thing is superior on every level so far. Build quality is phenominal, hand feel is terrific (got the case) and control and navigation are awesome. My card was indexed immediately and even though there was only 17% battery...

    Shanling M5s now with TIDAL - Dual AK4493EQ DAC, fully balanced, Wi-Fi, 2way LDAC BT, 3.2 Touch screen, FW 3.5

    Just following up on my own note as I think I've fixed the SD thing. There are no directions or warnings anywhere, but now in my experience exFAT vs FAT32 formatting makes a huge difference. After wiping and formatting the card again today to FAT32, I saw my copy task take about half the time...

    Had the volume issue today for the first time and was baffled by what happened. Took the next track and back to get things square.

    I'd love a fix / hack / solution for indexing larger SD Cards ... I have not seen a successful library update yet and I've tried a few times. Kinda making me dislike the player even though what I am hearing is quite good. l just want it all ... which frankly seems like the basic ask. I've got...

    I have some questions about the SR15 I was hoping people could answer ... First I've been having some strange issue with my SD Card on the Shanling M5S and it's making me crazy ... mostly the card won't fully index. It's a 400GB Card with about 330GB of tunes on there mostly FLAC with some...
