This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:
Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.
Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).
45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.
If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*
* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty. Terms and Conditions

”By squeezing even more performance out of its entry-level player, Astell & Kern has almost guaranteed that the SR25 is a winner.”’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Award-winner made better

It’s not easy improving upon a class-leader, but that’s just what Astell & Kern have done with the A&norma SR25. A faster, Quad-Core processor and newly designed circuitry give improved sound quality. Native support for DSD256 is now standard for enhanced quality with DSD files. The addition of Bluetooth LDAC improves the quality of wireless sound through compatible headphones. Finally, the new Performance Mode optimises playback.

Quad Core and Dual DACs
Featuring a new Quad-Core CPU, the SR25 has the power to get the most from your Hi-Res music files. Hi-Fi quality, Cirrus Logic Master HiFi DACs (Digital to Analogue Convertors) provide the SR25 with exceptional resolution. Meeting the highest standards for sonic precision, the DACs guarantee a reference level of sound. Using one DAC for the left channel and another for the right, the SR25 offers channel precision and stereo imaging that's well beyond most rivals.

Flexible format player
There are many HD Audio recordings already available to download online and you may already have started a collection on your computer or NAS drive. Where the SR25 really scores is being able to take those recordings with you - in the highest quality possible. The SR25 supports a wide range of file formats, including WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP3, OGG, APE, AAC, ALAC, AIFF, DFF, DSF and MQA.

Native DSD256 support
With native DSD support now at DSD256, the SR25 offers a big step-up from the DSD64 native support offered by the SR15. As an alternative to PCM sampling, many of the large music labels, including Sony, support DSD files. DSD is renowned for its huge dynamic range, ‘inky’ quiet backdrop and subtle detail that gives music ‘life’ and realism.

Performance Mode
Making the most of high quality files, the new Performance Mode optimises the player’s memory allocation according to the size of file being played. This helps minimise data loss, meaning you get to hear every subtle detail of music. Combined with the improved circuitry, it makes the SR25 a more revealing player than ever. Simply put, if it’s on the recording, you’ll hear every note.

Connect to your wireless headphones with Bluetooth LDAC
Bluetooth LDAC enhances the quality of a Bluetooth connection for more detailed and dynamic sound. Pair with compatible headphones, such as Sony LDAC models, and enjoy a much more detailed sound than standard Bluetooth connectivity.

Improved battery life
With a battery life of around 21 hours, the SR25 doubles the 10-hour life of the previous SR15 model – making it much more convenient on longer trips away. Charging time is around 2.5 hours.

Store it all - 64GB internal memory and now with support for a massive 1TB
With 64GB of internal memory, the SR25 stores about 625 tracks (24 bit/96kHz, 4 minute-long, 90MB) songs on its flash memory. With the addition of a micro SD card, this can be increased by up to a massive 1TB – enough for a lifetime’s collection of music.

Support for balanced headphones
With its 4-pol, 2.5mm headphone socket, the SR25 is ideal for use with balanced headphones. Using a balanced signal between the source and headphones reduces noise and interference and is especially handy on the move. A standard 3.5mm unbalanced socket is also standard.

Android 9.0 operating system
With firmware based on the Android 9.0 operating system, the SR25 is compatible with a wide range of music streaming apps. Spotify, TIDAL, Amazon Music and Deezer are the popular titles, amongst many others. Wi-fi connectivity ensures the SR25 makes an impressive music streamer as well as Hi-Res player.

If you love music on the move, you’ll find the Astell & Kern SR25 provides you with the detail your smartphone’s been missing.
