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 HiFi Rose RS250 is much more compact and lightweight in design and will facilitate any listening space.
The HiFi Rose 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 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, the iOS/Android app, or through the built-in 8.8″ touch-screen, it gives, clear intuitive access to all aspects of the RS250 design.
