A&NORMA: the new standard for portable audio

The A&norma line of portable audio players from Astell&Kern are designed to be an industry standard to play back high-resolution audio in a stunning, high-end, luxurious design and reproduce sound as it was intended by the artist and engineer who originally recorded it, at an affordable price. 
 
The SR25 is an upgrade of the award-winning A&norma SR15 player, and supports native playback of DSD256 and 32-bit/384KHz PCM high-resolution audio. 
 
The SR25 features two Cirrus Logic 43198 MasterClass DACs in dual-mono configuration like the SR15, but adds a number of new features such as a faster Quadcore CPU and newly designed circuitry to improve sound quality enhancements. A first for Astell&Kern players, the SR25 adds LDAC Bluetooth support, allowing users to wirelessly stream 24-bit hi-res audio to compatible speakers, headphones or IEMs. 
 
The SR25 also provides 20+ hours of continuous music playback, more than twice the playback time of the SR15 and longer than any other Astell&Kern player. The SR25's unique design balances user convenience with aesthetic factors. It features an aluminium body with an ultra-precision volume wheel machined with a vibration-free process used for luxury watches. The aluminium body suppresses noise and improves sound quality, while the thin-bodied design allows the user to easily hold and operate the 3.6-inch touchscreen display with one hand. 
 
“The SR25 is a new mass premium product that brings the philosophy of Astell&Kern to provide music the way it was meant to be heard, without compromise to an affordable, high quality player, with a luxury design that has received international award recognition,” said Baek Chang-Hum, Director of Dreamus, parent company of Astell&Kern.

Sound quality is very good. I use it with a pair of Westone W80 earbuds and they work really well together.

The APTxHD Bluetooth is awful with the Westone Bluetooth lead (which works fine with other devices) and is often unlistenable, so I use the earplug lead. I am hoping that will be resolved in future.

I use Macs and for a (relatively) high end device the mechanics of getting music onto the device (via Android file transfer) as also pretty dreadful. Once it is on and without APTXHD , sounds great !!
