Recently submitted on FCC, seems like a new version of the SR15 is coming soon:

Looks like a potentially new form factor rather than just an updated AK70 like the SR15:

I wonder if a new A&Futura is coming too.

If this can compete with the mojo in sound quality and costs the same as a 15 then AK are onto a winner

Well if they don't then I'll buy a Mojo? Don't see the point of that post.

AK deliberately engineer products to slot in-between their other products, sound quality wise, in order to not sabotage sales of their other products. This will be better than SR15 but no better than the SA700 as that is still a recent release.

Slightly behind the SA700 but for half the price? I may be interested.

If this is the SR25 then to me it looks like it’s basically a SR15 (same design) with USB-C, maybe with a different DAC and slightly bumped specs?
