The RS250 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 RS250 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.

Similar to its predecessor, RS150, the RS250 features similar attributes however the RS250 is much more compact and lightweight in design and will facilitate any listening space. 

A Focus on Sound

The RS250 has been designed with a full linear power supply that provides a clean and reliable power supply to the CPU and audio output circuits. 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.

Its highly precise femto clock helps the RS250 deliver superb stereoscopic, and distortion-free sound with quiet and clear background imaging. With built-in ESS flagship DAC, this delivers a low-noise, low-distortion and ultra-high-resolution sound, and rich analogue density that supports PCM 32 bit / 768kHz and Native DSD512 (22.5792MHz)

ROSE OS and Rose Connect

ROSE OS was created from scratch by Hi-Fi Rose themselves using the Android platform to deliver a first-class user experience. Whether accessed via Rose Connect, iOS/Android app, or through the built-in 8.8" touch-screen, it gives, clear intuitive access to all aspects of the RS250 design.

Rose Connect, the dedicated remote-control app, allows users to stream all music and videos locally on various music platforms such as TIDAL, Qobuz, ROSE Tube, Internet Radio and Podcasts. Rose Connect is accessible on various platforms including iPhone, iPad, Android phone, and PC. The inter-connected app ensures users can listen to their playlists whenever and however they prefer on a diverse range of devices. In addition to Rose Connect, users can 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 RS250 also features built-in apps for TIDAL and Qobuz - giving complete access to their extensive high-performance streaming libraries. The Tidal app allows access to Tidal's music video streaming for playback on the RS250 screen or via the HDMI output. The RS250 is a MQA full decoder - technology that enables seamless streaming of original master sound with small file sizes at a high-quality performance level.

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.

The RS250 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 user’s exact requirements to achieve greater control over the whole system.

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 RS250 is the ultimate device for high performance connectivity and streaming for your own personal playlists on Airplay, Roon Ready and Spotify Connect.
