2019 Best portable music player £500-£1000
"An extremely appealing all-rounder"

"Astell & Kern advances its most affordable line of portable music players with an extremely appealing all-rounder."

Astell&Kern SR15 uses two audio DAC chips for a Dual-DAC setup. These chips are known for their use in Home Hi-Fi systems which offer greater presence compared to the inferior DAC chips designed for mobile devices. There are many devices that use DAC chips for audio processing, however there are different tiers and quality of chips sought by Hi-Fi audio manufacturers to deliver an experience close to the original performance.

A&norma SR15 has adopted the MasterHIFI class DAC, CS43198 for the first time in a portable system. At Astell&Kern, we believe that true Hi-Fi should sound as close as possible to the original performance. The CS43198 is one of few DAC chipsets that is capable of bringing us even closer to the original when it's matched with the analog amp design of Astell&Kern. In result, it brings even more liveliness and warmth of sound without distortion.

Furthermore, A&norma SR15 supports native DSD bit-to-bit, and gets one step closer to the Hi-Fi system.

Cirrus Logic and Hi-Fi Audio Evolution

Specializing in low power ICs for audio and voice signal processing applications, Cirrus Logic's products span the entire audio signal chain, from capture to playback, providing innovative products for the world's top smartphones, tablets, digital headsets, wearables and emerging smart home applications. Now they have introduced the MasterHIFI chipset solutions for excellent audio reproduction performance. MasterHiFI class designation is only given to their chip sets that meet their highest audio performance standard. It will deliver your music as the musicians and producers wanted you to hear it.

An Evolving Legacy in High-Fidelity Audio

For more than three decades, Cirrus Logic has built its reputation as an expert in audio IC innovation. Cirrus Logic's audio innovation continues today with the development of MasterHIFI products from the industry's best audio IC design engineers. These integrated circuits, along with embedded software and DSP algorithms, are driving excellence in audio playback in new generations of mobile products.

Cirrus Logic audio products with the MasterHIFI designation meet the company's highest standard in high-fidelity audio playback. MasterHIFI products deliver the very best performance in sound clarity and pure, euphoric audio listening just like the artist intended. The devices should not unintentionally "color" the audio, but should maintain the “brightest” sounds expected from a recorded track.

Enhanced Audio Processing Power with Quad-core CPU

Some may think that only sound matters in Hi-Fi systems. While it does matter greatly, there are other factors that influence your immersive music experience as well. A&norma is designed to remove any distracting elements, including noise, distortion and unintuitive user interface. The Quad-core CPU gives you even more processing power for your digital music and a lot faster, natural UI experience. Get lost in your music without distractions.
