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

 

Hi-Fi Standards Redefined, A&norma SR15

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 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

Cirrus Logic has built its reputation as an expert in audio IC (Integrated Circuit) chips and solutions for more than three decades and has established its distinguished recognition in the audio industry. 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 chipsets 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.

 

 

24-bit, 192 kHz Bit-to-Bit Playback

The A&norma SR15 plays any resolution of digital files up to 24-bit/192 kHz, bit-for-bit. For 32-bit audio, downsampling is performed by the SRC (Sample Rate Converter) method. DSD is native up to 64 MHz and DSD 128 MHz is converted to PCM for playback.

 

USB Audio

A simple USB connection will allow the A&norma SR15 to be used as a digital music storage device and/or pre-amp to output digital audio through USB. The A&norma SR15 transfers DSD in native format through DoP (DSD over PCM) and converts DSD to PCM for output for external USB Audio that do not support DoP.

 

 

New Intuitive User Interface

A&norma SR15 has adopted the user interface of the A&ultima SP1000, which has grown famous for its intuitiveness and simplicity.

- Player is in the main. All functions are centered on "music replay." 
- Secure access to the music DB and features to manage music files
- Minimum menu depth and simple structure

 

"Optoma NuForce BE Free6 could be just what you're looking for, if you want great sound quality, solid battery life and secure fit at an affordable price. 

The standout feature here is probably the audio quality. With a decent amount of bass, good overall clarity and impressive sound isolation thanks to, ahem, 'revolutionary SpinFit TwinBlade® ear tips', the BE Free6 are a narrow cut above other buds at this price point. Bluetooth 5.0 and AAC give improved connectivity and audio quality.

A noise-cancelling mic handles calls, and thanks to the individually pairing miracle of Bluetooth 5 you can use the left or right bud alone, or both together."

 

Premium True Wireless Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones

For ultimate convenience and a smoother connection, the BE Free6 true wireless earbuds feature Bluetooth 5.0 along with no cables or neckband for unrestricted movement at any time. Designed for clear, uninterrupted audio, the portable carry case doubles up as a charger - allowing users to stay connected for non-stop listening on the go. Equipped with advanced audio coding and AAC, they deliver audiophile sound quality and stable wireless connection with no lag.

Bluetooth 5.0 technology also means either earbud can be used by itself in mono-mode for listening to audio or making voice calls while the other is charging inside the case - or for sharing with a partner or friend to use independently.

 

Key Features

- Quick charge: Just 15 minutes in the case gives you 1 hour of listening time

- Audiophile sound quality with graphene coated drivers: Enhanced with AAC for Apple® and Android™ 8.0

Full Headphone Functionality

These multi-functional truly wireless earbuds have a built-in cVc™ noise-cancelling microphone for calls, and a button on top of the earpiece to to play, pause and skip songs as well as activate Siri and Google Assistant.

 

SpinFit® Ear Tips

The newly patented ear tips are developed from high quality silicone. They are uniquely designed to rotate 360 degrees at the centre to allow the earbuds to sit comfortably in your ear.

Quick Charge

Graphene Coated Drivers

Compared to traditional drivers, graphene coated drivers are lighter, more precise and have excellent conductivity which requires less power to drive. This means that no matter what genre of music you are listening to, the bass, mids and high tones are clearly defined with low distortion.

 

Mono Mode - Sharing

Share one of your earbuds with a friend. Each earbud can be connected independently, so if a friend has forgotten their earphones and wants to listen to their own music, you can pass them one of your earbuds.

 

Mono Mode - Control

Each earphone can be used independently as a control. Both earbuds share the exact same button control functions so whether you use the left or right earbud you can play, pause, skip, answer and end calls or activate voice assistant simply and easily without confusion.

 

Improved voice calling - RCV

Enjoy hands-free clear calls in any environment thanks to RCV (Real Clear Voice) technology and an omnidirectional microphone. These earbuds expand the range of reception while reducing wind noise. You can even remove the right earbud and use it as a microphone to speak into - perfect for talking discretely in public places.
