The RS150b from HiFi Rose is a true high-end device. From its elegant, sturdy aluminium construction through its extensive DAC functions and on to its bespoke transformer design – no element of this prestigious product is left to chance. The RS150 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.
The RS150b is the next generation unit (which replaces the RS150).
It features the ESS Technology, SABRE ES9038PR DAC chipset with a slightly lower output level:
- 6.5Vrms (Balanced)
- 2.2Vrms (Unbalanced)
HiFi Rose RS150b Network Streamer provides an innovative musical experience. Stream and play ultra-high-quality music, 4K high-definition video, ad-free YouTube, Podcasts, various radio stations from around the world, CD playback/Ripping, and more.
The digital/analogue conversion stage incorporates the excellent ESS Technology, SABRE ES9038PR DAC chip. This supports high resolution files up to 32bit 768kHz PCM and up to DSD 512 (Native).
All the components of the RS150b are concealed under a magnificent high-purity solid aluminium chassis, which promotes efficient heat dissipation. The number of parts in this chassis is also considerably limited in order to limit the impact of vibrations that could alter sound reproduction.
The front of the device features a beautiful, large 14.9″ IPS touch screen for intuitive navigation through the RS150b’s ergonomic interface. The Rose RS150b can therefore be controlled not only via its touch screen, but also with the dedicated Rose Connect application, available free of charge on Android and iOS devices. This allows you to play your music and videos locally or from a network location.
The RS150b features:
- the Rose OS operating system, enabling an innovative music experience. It allows you to stream and play your music in ultra high quality, enjoy support for 4K videos, a commercial-free YouTube application, as well as many radio stations, manage CD playback and burning (via an external drive) and much more!
- enjoy Ultra HD 4K video, stored locally or via the Rose Tube application, thanks to its HDMI output. Ideal for a Home Cinema system!
- high-precision femtosecond clock, drastically limiting distortion while providing a wide and accurate sound image.
- linear power supply stage of the HiFi Rose RS150b Network Streamer benefits from an intelligent design to significantly reduce electrical noise in order to provide the various circuits with a clean electrical signal for distortion-free sound reproduction.
Designed to hold sufficient storage for your HiFi audio files, the RS150b is compatible with SSDs up to 4TB, external HDDs up to 10TB or Micro SD cards up to 400GB. It also allows the connection with a DLNA NAS.
