Recently, Astell & Kern revealed a variety of new products to add to their ever-growing catalog. This included their first-ever set of IEMs, as well as a 4.4mm balanced cable to accompany it. However, they’ve now revealed that they have another trick up their sleeve. Today, A&K has announced an improved version of one of their popular DAPs, the SR25. Going by the MKII, this new SR25 will house new enhancements to its already exceptional audio performance. The SR25 MKII offers more versatile connectivity options with the addition of a 4.4mm balanced output for the first time in an A&norma player, LDAC, as well as Qualcomm® aptX™ HD, which supports and deliver true audiophile sound quality. Here’s more of what to expect from the A&norma SR25 MKII.
No need to worry about battery life. The SR25 MKII can play continuously for 20 hours with just one full charge, thanks to its optimized, energy-efficient circuitry.
Enjoy your own personal musical performance anytime, anywhere with the SR25 MKII’s extended playback time and portability.
- Music in FLAC format, 16 bit, 44.1 kHz, unbalanced, volume at 50, EQ Off, LCD Off
- Playback time may vary depending on the user environment.
Silver Plating Shield Can
Astell&Kern products apply shield cans so that noise and electromagnetic interference, which occur when the countless parts are in operation, do not affect the audio block.
The SR25 MKII has taken it a step further by applying highly conductive, hyper-pure silver plating on the existing shield cans for perfect shielding that provides excellent audio performance.
Wireless Hi-Fi Sound Through BT Sink
The newly introduced BT Sink function connects the SR25 MKII to an external device via Bluetooth, similar to connecting a smartphone with a BT speaker.
Music from an external device, such as a smartphone can now be played back in high-quality on the SR25 MKII using the BT Sink function.
ReplayGain Automatically and Uniformly Adjust Playback Volume
ReplayGain, which adjusts sound sources with different volumes to an identical level, has been applied. Now, enjoy your own playlists seamlessly through the ReplayGain feature on SR25 MKII.
The Astell & Kern A&norma SR25 MKII is estimated to release November 15th, 2021.
