The RS201 E from HiFi Rose is the ultimate music streamer, DAC and amplifier. Housed within a minimalist, sturdy enclosure and boasting a desk-friendly footprint, the opportunities on offer from the RS201 E put it in a class of its own. With rich sound quality and elegant user experience, it may be the most innovative all-in-one product the hi-fi world has ever encountered.

A Focus on Sound

Supporting the latest High-Resolution PCM 32-bit / 384kHz and Native DSD (11.2MHz) technologies, the RS201 E is designed to provide a vivid and dynamic sound through its reference-quality digital stage. High-speed driver variation techniques and an embedded pure path Ultra HD power amplifier provide superb audio quality with ultra-low distortion whether used as a fixed level source, a pre-amplifier or as a full integrated amplifier. The RS201 E amplifier is more than just a convenience, it is a sonically capable and well-refined device.

Play music and video files from a local storage device (USB, MicroSD or SATA), or access files elsewhere on your home network with a DLNA connection to any NAS drives or other storage devices. The MUSIC app gives a clean presentation of all your connected music sources and is easy to navigate and use. The RS201 E also features built-in apps for TIDAL and QOBUZ - giving complete access to their extensive high-performance streaming libraries. The Tidal app even gives access to Tidal's music video streaming for playback on the RS201 E screen or via the HDMI output. The RS201 E is also an MQA decoder, for full playback of Tidal Masters tracks.

The CD and CD RIPPING apps allow you to attach any standard external CD-ROM drive for convenient CD playback, or to rip CDs in highest quality to any local storage device in a quick and intuitive way, all through the touch-screen interface.

The RADIO and PODCAST apps give you access to extensive live radio and podcast databases, while ROSE TUBE gives you access to YouTube for high-quality music and video playback.

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!
