The RS150 from HiFi Rose is a true high-end device. From its elegant, sturdy aluminium construction through its extensive DAC functions, and on to its bespoke transformer design – no element of this prestigious product is left to chance. The RS150 is guaranteed to deliver industry leading sound and benefits from Rose OS, a bespoke operating system that delivers a control interface and feature-set that is second-to-none.
Designed to deliver high-quality sound by acoustic engineers with 30 years of experience, the RS150B is capable of clearly expressing the full frequency range from its grand and rich bass delivery through to the delicate, elegant highs. Its highly precise femto clock delivers superb stereoscopic, and distortion-free sound with quiet and clear background imaging. Integrated with the high-end ESS SABRE ES9038PRO DAC chip, the RS150B offers low noise, low distortion, ultra-high-resolution sound that still has a rich density and analogue feel with proprietary processing supporting up-to PCM 32-bit / 768kHz and Native DSD512 (22.4MHz).
The use of a linear power supply results in the minimisation of noise inflow significantly, and the ideal circuit layout employed eliminates electrical noise, and creates dramatically improved sound quality without distortion.
At the centre of each HiFi Rose streamer is Rose OS, a purpose-designed operating system that brings countless features to your fingers.
Incorporating streaming services like Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music and Qobuz alongside industry-leading technologies such as Hi-Res Audio, Roon and MQA support, there is so much available to you.
The RS150 also functions as a complete digital hub and pre-amplifier, for a fully customised system set-up. With an extensive array of hardware inputs and outputs, most of which can be customised or adjusted to suit the exact environment, you can achieve greater control over your whole system than ever before.
There's also the option to connect to the network by ethernet (preferred), or by WiFi. The included dongle also supports Bluetooth communication. The supplied Bluetooth remote control gives extensive control over most of the ROSE OS system.
The RS150 design, in combination with ROSE OS, leaves no stone unturned, and takes complete control of your listening experience, optimising it for the very best experience. With its 14.9" touch screen, mounted in a high-purity aluminium chassis, which has been integrated into one piece to maximise thermal efficiency; it is a product that feels as high-quality as its feature list would suggest.
The RS150B is the ultimate streaming player, and is a must-consider option for anyone who wants the latest technologies delivered in the most user friendly way. Not forgetting the addition of the ROSE Connect app, which is an intuitive, and dedicated application allowing users to play all music and videos from local and network sources.
Hi-Fi Choice review the Hi-Fi Rose RS150
"So much more than just a beautifully designed component showing others the way to go, the RS150 back ups the stunning aesthetics with a performance to match."
Av Forums Award the Hi-Fi rose RS150B the Editors Choice Award
"What’s most important about HiFi Rose though is that none of the cleverness of the design as a whole affects the audiophile credentials of the product."
Pursuit Perfect System review the Hi-Fi Rose RS150B
Hi-Fi Wigwam review the Hi-Fi Rose RS150B
"The RS150(B) is first and foremost a natural and very detailed player with no sense of fatigue. For me it errs slightly on the soft side of presentation and that suits me just fine. Go listen or get one on demo but as the reputation grows, I wouldn’t wait too long."
HiFi Rose produce some of the most excitingly integratable devices I've ever known in the hi-fi industry. Thanks to Rose OS, a whole world of musical possibilities is at your fingertips - from flawless, fully 'tweakable' playback of your local files, to streaming from Tidal, Qobuz and Rosetube (a Youtube Music rework). All of these options give you a huge variety of playback options, including video!
These are absolutely worth a play in your local authorised retailer's showroom!

Yes, all Line inputs on the [RS150/RS250] are converted to I2S through the high-quality ADC and the signal is then output through the DAC. By using I2S we guarantee absolute signal integrity through this process.
As a result of the AKM chip fire, which happened during 2020, global shortages of the DAC chip used within the original RS150 design were depleted, resulting in a specification change to the ESS SABRE ES9038PRO chip. The RS150B began shipping during 2021 and the difference between the old and the new version is recognised by the "B" denotation.
