Designed for audiophiles and crafted for connoisseurs, the RS130 is the flagship network transport that promises to elevate your listening sessions into a transcendent auditory journey.

Design that Speaks Volumes

The RS130 embodies a symphony of design and functionality. Its large 15.4-inch touchscreen display is a window into your music collection, offering intuitive navigation and a visual feast of album art and VU meters. The crystal function buttons add a touch of elegance, providing tactile feedback that complements the sleek, modern aesthetic. This is a piece of technology that doesn't just blend into your living space—it enhances it.

Connectivity at Its Core

In the world of high-fidelity audio, connectivity is key. The RS130 boasts an extensive array of ports to seamlessly integrate into any setup:

  • Fiber Ethernet and USB for a pure, noise-free connection
  • Copper Ethernet for traditional networking
  • USB 3.0 and USB DAC for expansive compatibility
  • I2S, Optical, Coax, and AES/EBU for high-quality digital audio
  • HDMI 2.0 for 4K video support

This ensures that whether you're streaming the latest 4K concert or enjoying your meticulously curated digital audio collection, the RS130 has you covered.

Unparalleled Audio Performance

At the heart of the RS130's audio prowess lies its large linear power supply equipped with a supercapacitor, designed to deliver clean, stable power for noise-free performance. The OCXO clock system ensures ultra-precise timing, reducing jitter to imperceptible levels and guaranteeing that your music is presented with the utmost fidelity.

Streaming Services and CD Ripping

With built-in support for popular streaming services like Tidal, Qobuz, Apple Music, and Bugs, the RS130 puts an entire universe of music at your fingertips. For those with a cherished CD collection, the ability to rip CDs directly to the internal 256 GB SSD means your favorite albums are always ready to play in high-quality digital format.

Intuitive Control

The RS130 is designed to be as enjoyable to use as it is to listen to. The touchscreen display offers quick and easy navigation, while the Rose Connect App puts control of your music library in the palm of your hand. Whether you're in the mood for something specific or just browsing, the RS130's user interface is a joy to use.

Video Support and More

The inclusion of 4K HDMI output means the RS130 isn't just for audiophiles—it's also a boon for cinephiles. Connect it to your home theater system and enjoy your favorite films with an audio track that's as high-quality as the picture.

High-performance Network Transport
HiFi Rose components are renowned for their exceptional user interface, robust connectivity, and outstanding sound and construction quality. The RS130 network transport employs precise technology to achieve the purest, most crystal-clear playback of your digital music and 4K video files, all while retaining HiFi Rose's highly intuitive and visually pleasing touchscreen control.

"Transport only" — separate DAC required
In contrast to its relative, the RS150B, this streaming device exclusively serves as a network transport and necessitates connection to an external digital-to-analog converter (DAC) or your preferred receiver, amplifier, or preamplifier equipped with an integrated DAC. Employing distinct, specialized components for streaming and digital-to-analog conversion can optimize your audio quality to its fullest extent.

Exceptional Build Quality

From its meticulously crafted aluminum chassis to the elegant design of its seamless single-piece glass touchscreen display, the RS130 exudes a sense of durability designed to counteract vibrations and ensure longevity.

Beneath the surface, you'll discover isolated circuitry and a linear, shielded power supply centered around a toroidal transformer and a high-capacity super-capacitor. These elements collaborate harmoniously to minimize unwanted noise.

User-Friendly and Adaptable Control
The ease of use for this advanced technology is a noteworthy feature. The network transport's expansive front-panel touchscreen display will be instantly familiar to anyone accustomed to operating a smartphone or tablet. Furthermore, automatic updates are provided at no cost to ensure the device remains up-to-date with evolving technology and its expanding capabilities.

For control, you can utilize the RoseConnect Premium app, compatible with both Apple® and Android™ devices, which is regarded as one of the finest options available due to its intuitive, rapid, and dependable performance. This app grants convenient access to streaming services (including TIDAL, Qobuz, Spotify®, and more) and music files stored either internally or on your NAS server.

Additionally, you can employ Apple AirPlay® and Roon for streamer control, or use the included Bluetooth remote to select sources and manage playback. Four buttons on the top of the unit offer simple tactile control for power, volume, and playback.

Immerse Yourself in 4K Video
The RS130's 4K video decoding and HDMI 2.0 output open the door to endless video possibilities. With the RoseTube app, you can browse and play YouTube videos on the unit's full-color screen or, even better, on your TV.

Versatile Digital Connectivity
The rear panel provides a range of digital outputs for connecting to your preferred DAC, including coaxial, optical, AES/EBU, and a high-resolution audio-only I2S HDMI output.

Precision Timing with the High-Accuracy Clock
The RS130 boasts an exceptionally accurate built-in OCXO clock that maintains a stable operational temperature, minimizing timing errors that could obscure musical details. Moreover, you have the option to incorporate an external master clock generator for even cleaner, more precise, and jitter-free digital audio signals through dedicated inputs.

Flexible Storage Options
With three USB-A ports at your disposal for local access to digital music files (one reserved for the included Wi-Fi/Bluetooth dongle), the RS130 offers ample flexibility. It also features 256GB of built-in caching memory, ensuring seamless and delay-free playback.

In addition, all HiFi Rose models include an internal bay on the bottom panel for adding optional SSD storage, capable of recognizing drives up to 4TB, a capacity likely to surpass your storage needs.
