    I am returning my 535’s.

    After 150 hours with them, I’ve concluded they are just not what I thought they would be. Side by side, my TFZ Galaxy T2’s were stomping them. The treble was really harsh and the bass was nonexistent. I wonder if they were fakes???!!!

    I will up my budget!!
    Any one have a favorite IEM to suggest with the SR15?

    Are campfire andromeda’s really THAT good??! I am tempted...

    Press and hold at the top for less than a second and the top menu will pop out, you can then drag your finger down to completely open it.

    Where did you get the case from? A&K or Dignis? Luckily I haven’t gotten any leather case yet and might not need one for now.

    I've not tried the Andromeda's but I can't say enough good things about the SE846s, they sound wonderful with the SR15

    @JasonNYC any news on the playlists being saved properly to playlist folder when adding externally?

    And has anyone done that actually? I'm a definite buyer of the sr15 if it avoids SRC .

    Seems the rep has confirmed native file sample rate playback. But then others have mentioned how the apk sounds different than the ak streaming app . I noticed the same on hiby r6 --- that uapp and tidal apk sound slightly different. Yet both apps are supposedly free of src on hiby r6

    Sorry, nothing yet. People have been in and out of the office for the holidays. I will follow up with everyone again.

    @JasonNYC hello, just wanted to ask if there has been any follow up on Astell&Kerns suppliers for Canada? I'm aware that they decided to go first party with dealers instead of going through a third party supplier to dealers. Any update on that would be greatly appreciated as i'm still waiting patiently for my local store here in Montreal, Canada to get the SR15 Norma or SE100 (i havent made my choice between them yet.) so i could purchase one with the optional leather case.

    Shipments went out to our Canadian dealers right before Christmas, so they should have stock now or by the end of next week depending on when deliveries reach them.

    Just found this forum and just getting into this stuff...got myself an SR15 and a pair of Focal Pro clear cans ...its an interesting journey so far.

    Im finding the SR15 cool...but..the touch screen is a bit odd, doesnt always react very well...anyone had this:?

    Thanks

    Yes occasionally I’m trying to scroll down the cover art to find a particular album and it keeps opening and playing almost every album I touch ☹️ But I’ve found a reboot does cure the problem for a while.
    I’m hoping a software update will cure this permanently at some point.

    So this is what the insides of the SR15 look like. Cool.

    Nothing here looks like it would of forced the engineers to design the sr15 with a tilted design. Just goes to show that its 100% an aesthetic choice. Also, looks pretty plain, ive seen the inside of sonys wm1a and its impressive visually for a circuit board.

    Correct, and the SP1000 circuit board is equally plain. AK don't tend to use much in the way of in house developed components like Sony does.
    AK really need to start using super capacitors and audio grade discrete resistors. I'm super curious as to what opamp chips AK use as well.

    I have an SR15 being delivered to me tomorrow, hope I'm not disappointed, I have high standards.
