HiFi Rose RA180 Integrated Amplifier

Experience the Fusion of Tradition and Innovation

Welcome to the world of auditory excellence, where the HiFi Rose RA180 amplifier stands as a monument to the harmonious blend of classic design and cutting-edge technology. The RA180 isn't just an amplifier; it's a statement piece, a conversation starter, and most importantly, the heart of your home audio system.

The Power to Move You

At the core of the RA180 lies its formidable power output. Imagine 200 watts per channel at 8 ohms, delivering a sound so pristine and powerful that it breathes life into every note. For those seeking an even more immersive experience, the RA180's bridged mode elevates the power to a staggering 400 watts per channel, ensuring your music fills the room with unparalleled clarity and dynamism.

An Amplifier Like No Other

The RA180 isn't just powerful; it's smart. Featuring Class AD amplifier technology — a hybrid that combines the best of Class A/B and Class D — it offers the warmth and musicality of Class A, the efficiency of Class D, and a sound quality that's nothing short of revolutionary.

  • Gallium Nitride (GaN) FET Transistors: These cutting-edge components are the secret behind the RA180's extraordinary audio fidelity, offering faster switching speeds and less power loss.

  • Balanced Power Supply: Utilizing 4th generation SiC FET technology with Power-Factor Correction (PFC), the RA180 ensures a stable supply of energy to your music, eliminating any hint of distortion.

Tailoring Your Sound

The RA180 is an audiophile's dream, providing tools to shape sound to perfection:

  • Biamping and Bridging: Maximize your speakers' potential with the option to biamp or bridge (BTL mode), delivering a soundstage with more depth and detail.

  • Active Crossover: The built-in active crossover allows you to adjust frequencies to suit your speakers and room, ensuring a seamless blend between multiple drivers.

  • Phono Stage: Vinyl enthusiasts will appreciate the RA180's support for both MM and MC cartridges, complete with customizable equalization curves to honor the vinyl's original sound.

  • Tone Controls: For those who love to fine-tune, bass and treble controls are at your fingertips, with a bypass switch for purists who prefer an unaltered path.

Connectivity and Control

The RA180 is a hub of connectivity:

  • Inputs: With multiple RCA inputs, one XLR input, and a dedicated phono input, the RA180 can accommodate a diverse range of audio sources.

  • Outputs: Multiple loudspeaker binding posts allow for biwiring or biamping, providing flexibility and enhanced audio performance.

  • Remote Control: The included IR remote control offers convenient operation from the comfort of your seat.

A Design That Speaks Volumes

The RA180's design is a masterpiece, echoing a retro spirit fused with modern sensibilities. The visible moving cogs and illuminated faceplate are not just aesthetically pleasing; they're a nod to the golden era of hi-fi, reimagined for today's discerning listener.

Smart Features for a Connected World

The RA180 is as intelligent as it is beautiful:

  • Network Connectivity: With built-in Wi-Fi, app control, and streaming services are at your fingertips.

  • Storage Capacity: Store your favorite music internally with the option to expand as your collection grows.

  • Streaming Capabilities: Popular streaming services are seamlessly integrated, ensuring your music is always just a click away.

  • Multi-Room Audio: Fill your home with music, controlling and synchronizing playback across different rooms with ease.

Bold amplifier design and impeccable performance

A single glance at HiFi Rose's RA180 reveals its unique character as an integrated amplifier. However, a closer examination uncovers its somewhat traditional approach. It doesn't incorporate streaming or DAC capabilities; its only Wi-Fi functionality is its connection to a user-friendly control app.

The RA180 boasts four bridgeable channels of exceptional power for driving your speakers, offering both balanced and unbalanced analog inputs, including a phono input. Additionally, it provides powerful features that allow you to finely tune your sound with precision.

Elegant Form and Function
The RA180's appearance combines elements of "steampunk" aesthetics with a distinct audiophile appeal. Its illuminated analog level meters feature partially open faces beneath the crystal, allowing you to observe the electromagnets that control the needle's movement. The distinctive volume knob turns five aluminum gears when adjusted.

You can make virtually any adjustment using the tactile front-panel controls, including source selection, bass, treble, balance, and more. When operating the amplifier with the included remote or the Rose AMP Connect app for Apple® and Android™ devices, the physical dials on the amp actually move, creating a visually and tactilely appealing experience.

Furthermore, you have the option to bypass front-panel controls in discrete sections using dedicated switches or activate them all at once using the pure direct switch.

Versatile Analog Connections
This amplifier offers both unbalanced and balanced analog inputs, including a home-theater bypass and a highly adjustable phono input. The phono input allows for the use of either a moving coil or moving magnet cartridge, and you can fine-tune it using the front-panel phono preamp controls to achieve the best sound quality.

While the RA180 primarily features analog connections, it can deliver exceptional audio quality from digital sources equipped with a built-in DAC, such as its ideal companion, the HiFi Rose RS150B network streamer.

Advanced Hybrid Amplification
The RA180 incorporates four separate amplifier channels, all employing an innovative circuit design referred to as "Class AD" by HiFi Rose. While it shares similarities with more conventional Class D amplifiers by utilizing a "switching" design, the RA180 distinguishes itself with its GaN (Gallium nitride) FET topology, enhancing the sometimes clinical sound associated with Class D amplification by significantly accelerating switch timing—up to 10 times faster than typical silicon FET switching devices.

Versatile Bi-Amp Outputs for Two Pairs of Speakers
The RA180's back panel is equipped with eight pairs of speaker terminals in a unique configuration that allows for bi-amping compatible speakers. This setup empowers you to drive the tweeters and low-frequency drivers with dedicated built-in amplifier channels. Moreover, you can experiment with the front-panel crossover controls when bypassing your speakers' internal crossovers.

You have the option to connect two pairs of speakers and select between them using the front-panel control. Alternatively, you can switch to stereo bridged (BTL) mode using the back-panel switch, delivering a formidable 400 watts per channel to a single pair of speakers.
