Revolutionary Quad DAC Mode and New Generation Amp Technology

The SR35 boasts exclusive circuitry that pushes sonic boundaries and deploys the first Dual/Quad DAC switching mode in the A&norma series. This mode allows users to easily adjust the sound and power output while improving power efficiency.

Additionally, the SR35 is the first in the series to be equipped with New Generation Amp technology from Astell&Kern, which effectively eliminates noise at the high-power output to ensure the clearest, distortion-free sound possible.

Elevated Hi-Fi Experience with Two-Step Gain Mode

The new amplifier technology built into the SR35 boasts a two-step gain mode for the ultimate Hi-Fi experience.

New gain settings generate a high current output to produce a consistently powerful sound with excellent driver control to ensure seamless use of sensitive IEMs and hard-to-drive headphones.

Intuitive User Interface and Ultimate Connectivity

For the most seamless of listening experiences, the SR35 comes with a reimagined, crimson-themed, intuitive user interface featuring a new album artwork search function.

The AK File Drop function in the SR35 makes wireless transfers more convenient than ever. Additionally, the SR35 is equipped with Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4/5GHz) to provide strengthened network performance, allowing music of the highest possible quality to be enjoyed through a wide range of streaming and Roon Ready services.

The SR35 also brings your other devices up to its level. Music from an external device, such as a smartphone, can now be played back in high quality on the SR35 through a new BT Sink function.

Roon Ready and MQA Support for Hi-Fi Fans

Furthermore, the new functionality comes with Roon Ready status, plus full MQA 8x decoder support, enabling the SR35 to natively play and stream Hi-Fi MQA tracks.

These additions keep the new model true to the A&norma concept of playing authentic sounds anywhere and at any time.

Inimitable, Powerful Design

Embodying the design principles of the A&norma range, the SR35 is powerful yet portable in its stature.

The bold line at the side of the device that widens at the bottom symbolises a warrior’s sword of battle while the concave surface of the refined volume crown represents a shield. These shapes combine in the design of the SR35 to indicate the strength and consistency of the unrivalled audio performance.

The A&norma SR35 is currently available to purchase for £799/€899/US$800/AU$1299 at or at a range of trusted retailers.
