High-Res Audio, Stunning Video, and a Touch Screen Make the HiFi Rose RS250 Network Streamer, DAC, and Preamplifier Ideal for a Wide Variety of Systems
The HiFi Rose RS250 Network Streamer is your cutting-edge companion for audio and video entertainment. This streamer, DAC, and pre-amplifier allows you to immerse yourself in the sonic tapestries of timeless albums, as well as the engaging graphics and dynamic performances of the latest music videos. The RS250 is ideal for the voracious music fan who wants to access entertainment with a simple touch of the finger.
The front panel of the HiFi Rose RS250 has an innovative, HD touch screen, making it simple to control all the functions. On the back panel, the inputs and outputs give you abundant options to connect a variety of equipment. With its powerful ESS chip (ES9038 Q2M), the RS250 delivers low-noise, low-distortion, ultra-high-resolution sound with processing that supports 32-bit/768kHz PCM and native DSD512 (22.5792MHz). A Femto clock and linear power supply configuration help create distortion-free playback and rich, detailed audio.
The sleek RS250 is your rocket to a galaxy of streaming content: TIDAL, Qobuz, Bugs, Rose Tube, internet radio stations, and podcasts are all readily available in Rose Connect (a remote control app). With the Roon Ready RS250, Spotify Connect, Airplay, Bluetooth A2DP, and DLNA features are also available.
Certified by the Japan Audio Society (JAS) as a High-Resolution Audio component, the RS250 supports MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) full decoding technology. In this format, the master MQA file is fully authenticated and loaded with information, yet it remains small enough to stream or download.
The 8.8-inch touch screen on the RS250 makes it easy to operate, and you can move from audio to video with a simple touch of your finger. The front panel can display album art and music videos, and it is capable of video playback at 60 frames per second.
Greatly enhancing the convenience factor is the intuitive Rose Connect app, which allows you to play music and videos from local and network sources. Using the HDMI connection, you can enjoy Ultra HD 4K video or Rose Tube video files on a large monitor from a connected storage device (USB, external hard drive, SSD, etc.).
The HiFi Rose RS250 has 4TB of storage, offers easy setup, provides diverse end-user customization options, and is compatible with a wide array of hi-fi gear. Also, its sturdy chassis, which is constructed with high-purity aluminum, gracefully blocks problems associated with internal vibrations. The result is pristine audio with intricate detail.
The RS250 comes with a Bluetooth remote control. Like every Music Direct product, the HiFi Rose RS250 Network Streamer comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
"I have genuinely not had this much hi-fi fun [in] years; the HiFi Rose RS250 has been an absolute blast. The highly musical audiophile performance from the Sabre DAC chip in here is the main takeaway, but the video fun, enjoyment, and ease of use all add up to a fantastic piece of equipment...."
