Audio46 is an Authorized Dealer of Astell&Kern

The SR25 improves on the SR15 by:
  • Adding a new, faster Quad-Core CPU paired with the Dual Cirrus Logic CS43198 Master Hi-Fi level DAC, first used on the SR15
  • Native playback support for DSD256
  • A new class-leading performance mode for ultra-high quality playback without compromise
  • Newly designed circuitry to improve sound quality enhancements
  • Addition of Bluetooth LDAC codec to give users more options for higher quality wireless sound
The essence of Astell&Kern's philosophy that sound quality is never compromised is exemplified in the SR25, which expresses every musical detail and bit-perfect playback as only Astell&Kern can.

You can also pre-order a leather case to protect your SR25 in black, red, or tan.

I wonder what the tuning differences are between this and sr-15, especially since they use the same dac.

I just hope with OS will be fast and snappy, laggy OS just kills it for me. Unfortunately this also means I will need to buy a 2.5mm balanced cable for my IEMs if I decide to buy this player.

AK is famous of its UI but dont expect Android like since it is not.. almost every player now has balanced output... is either 4.4 or 2.5.. only very few has 3.5... but balanced sometime does not automatically become better.. some actually prefer unbalanced over balanced.. so try it out before you purchase balanced cable..
