The Astell & Kern A&Norma SR15 is part of Astell & Kern’s new 2018 line up of premium digital audio players, and it represents A&K’s focus on sound quality in a compact, well built product.

The signature feature of the SR15 is its tilted display, which improves the ergonomics of the SR15 by ensuring no part of the hand covers the interface while holding the unit. The SR15 also embodies Astell & Kern’s focus on build quality with its solid metal frame and patterned glass back. We do recommend a case to go with the SR15 to protect the unit and to take the edge off some of the design’s sharp lines.

The SR15 features a quad-core processor that makes scrolling and moving around the interface very responsive compared to many other players in this class. The new A&K UI itself is fast and simple to navigate, and the compact size makes for practical portability.

In our testing we found a significant improvement in noise performance over the A&K AK70 MKII on both the single ended and 2.5mm balanced outputs. Output impedance is below 1.6 ohms on both outputs. The low-noise, high performance attributes of these outputs make the SR15 a great match for sensitive balanced armature IEMs like the Campfire Audio Andromeda, or A&K’s own line of in-ear monitors.

If you are looking for high performance in a small player, the SR15 is definitely worth a look.
