The RS520 by HiFi Rose is a multifunctional component, integrating an amplifier, streamer, DAC, and preamplifier, all within a compact and luxurious design. It boasts generous power output, versatile source connections, and features HiFi Rose's user-friendly touchscreen Android™ OS right onboard. All you require to begin your audio journey is this unit and your preferred set of speakers.

Audiophiles will undoubtedly appreciate its commanding yet velvety sound quality. I'm particularly impressed with the innovative touchscreen capabilities, including the practical virtual back panel for managing inputs and outputs, as well as the virtual VU meters. Furthermore, its build quality is top-notch, with all four sides of its robust aluminum chassis being meticulously crafted as a single piece to minimize vibrations and safeguard the premium internal circuitry.

Simplified Control
The RS520 effortlessly connects to the internet through Ethernet or its built-in Wi-Fi. The user interface is intuitive, whether accessed via the front-panel touchscreen or the complimentary RoseConnect Premium app designed for Apple® and Android devices.

It efficiently organizes your diverse streaming sources, encompassing music services such as TIDAL, Qobuz, and Spotify, as well as music files stored in the unit's internal storage or your NAS server. Additionally, you have the convenience of using Apple AirPlay® or Roon to manage the streamer, or you can rely on the included Bluetooth remote.

Innovative Hybrid Amplification
The RS520 employs a unique amplifier circuit design referred to as "Class AD" by HiFi Rose. Although it shares similarities with more traditional Class D amplifiers by utilizing a "switching" design, the RS520 distinguishes itself with its GaN (Gallium nitride) FET topology, enhancing sound quality by significantly accelerating switch timing—up to 10 times faster than conventional silicon FET switching devices.

This amplifier is capable of delivering a robust 250 watts of clean power to your speakers and remains stable down to 4 ohms. This means you can connect demanding, harder-to-drive speakers and achieve exceptional results.

High-Resolution DAC
Under the hood, the RS520 features a responsive six-core CPU paired with a high-performance ESS SABRE DAC that supports resolutions of up to 32-bit/768kHz with PCM sources or DSD up to 22.4 MHz (DSD512). As a result, you can expect rich, detailed sound with a remarkably quiet noise floor and minimal distortion.

4K Video Capability
The RS520 is equipped to decode 4K video via its HDMI 2.0 output. The RoseTube app allows you to browse and enjoy YouTube videos on the unit's full-color screen or, even better, on your TV. Moreover, its digital audio inputs enable you to enjoy high-quality soundtrack audio from any content you may be watching.

Versatile Connectivity
The back panel of the RS520 is replete with connectivity options, including an unbalanced analog preamp output for connecting to an external amplifier, as well as an RCA stereo analog input. This versatility allows for connections to a USB drive, HiFi Rose RSA780E CD drive, another CD player, or even a turntable equipped with a phono preamp.High-performance streaming amp
