Dual DAC of CS43198, MasterHIFI™ tier chipsets from Cirrus Logic Enhanced audio processing power and snappy UI with Quad-core CPU Native DSD playback and playback-focused User Interface Powerful audio performance curated by Astell&Kern’s know-how

The Astell & Kern SR15 is the first model of Astell&Kern’s newly introduced standard line.

The A&norma 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 analogue 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.
