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.

A Focus on Sound

Designed to deliver high-quality sound by acoustic engineers with 30 years of experience, the RS150 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 Asahi Kasei's flagship DAC chip AK4499EQ, the RS150 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.

ROSE OS

ROSE OS was produced from the ground-up using the Android platform to deliver a first-class user experience. Whether accessed via the iOS or Android app, or through the built-in 14.9" touch-screen, it gives, clear intuitive access to all aspects of the RS150 design.

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 RS150 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 RS150 screen or via the HDMI output. The RS150 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. 

ROSE OS also offers support for Roon Ready, Spotify Connect and AirPlay, effectively bringing your entire digital audio experience into one elegant product. 

Connect Anything

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.

Compatible with multiple devices via numerous input/output terminals, the RS150 is the ultimate device for high performance connectivity and streaming. 

Quality Throughout

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.
