Choose the RS250A, and transform the way you listen to music forever.

Sweet high-res Streaming

After just a few minutes of exploring HiFi Rose's RS250A streamer, you might start wondering why more streaming components don't incorporate touchscreens.

HiFi Rose's customized Android™ OS, integrated into this premium streamer/DAC/preamplifier, offers a user-friendly experience that will come naturally to mobile users. Audiophiles will undoubtedly appreciate its commanding yet smooth sound. I'm particularly fond of the innovative touchscreen features, such as the practical virtual back panel for managing inputs and outputs, as well as the virtual VU meters.

Effortless Control Having grown up with vinyl and CDs, transitioning to streaming was quite a challenge. However, the RS250A changes the game. It connects to the internet via Ethernet or its built-in Wi-Fi, and the user interface is intuitive whether you're using the front-panel touchscreen apps and the volume/mute knob or the free RoseConnect Premium app designed for Apple® and Android devices. The organization of various sources, ranging from streaming services like TIDAL, Qobuz, and Spotify to music files stored on the device or your NAS server, feels akin to the user experience provided by Roon. It even integrates seamlessly with Roon if you have a subscription.

You also have the convenience of using Apple AirPlay® for streamer control or the included Bluetooth remote. Automatic updates ensure that the RS250A stays current with evolving technology and expanding capabilities.

Silent Noise-Floor for Delicate Details What truly sets the RS250A apart is its unobtrusiveness. This applies not only to its user interface but also to its treatment of audio signals, which it delivers with lifelike clarity, an exceptionally quiet noise floor, and minimal distortion.

Powered by a responsive hexa-core CPU and equipped with a high-performance ESS SABRE DAC capable of handling 32-bit/768kHz resolution, it offers an impressive sonic performance. The digital clock plays a crucial role in delivering this sound quality, as it effectively reduces the inherent distortions found in digital music transmission by precisely aligning data intervals. The RS250A's femto clock measures time down to the femtosecond, which is one quadrillionth of a second, ensuring exceptionally smooth and precise audio reproduction.

Venturing into the World of 4K Video With its HDMI 2.0 output, the RS250A enables you to explore an abundance of video content in 4K. Using the RoseTube app, you can browse and play YouTube videos on the unit's full-color screen or, even better, on your TV. Moreover, its digital audio inputs allow you to leverage the high-quality built-in DAC for playing sources like a CD player or a set-top box.

Exceptional Craftsmanship and Abundant Connectivity The attention to detail in the RS250A's design becomes evident when you handle the device. From its sturdy aluminum-panel construction to the understated elegance of its glass touchscreen display, you can sense that it's engineered to minimize vibrations and ensure longevity. Under the hood, a toroidal transformer and shielded circuitry work together to reduce unwanted noise.

The back panel offers a wealth of digital connections, as well as unbalanced analog output for connecting to your amplifier, and an RCA stereo analog input. This extensive connectivity allows you to connect a USB drive, HiFi Rose RSA780E CD drive, or even a turntable with a phono preamp.

Flexible Local Storage Options The RS250A features USB connections for local access to external digital music files. Additionally, an internal bay on the bottom panel allows you to add optional SSD storage. The player can recognize drives with a capacity of up to 4TB, which is likely more storage than you'll ever need.
