A Better Build For Better Sound

The RS250A's 8.8-inch touch screen makes it easy to operate, and you can move from audio to video with a simple swipe of your finger. The front panel can display album art and music videos (capable of video playback at 60 fps) or custom VU meters.

The Best Streaming Built-In

All your favorite streaming platforms are readily available via HiFi Rose's Rose Connect app with support for Apple Music, TIDAL, Qobuz, Bugs, Rose Tube, and internet radio stations. RS201E is Roon Ready with Spotify Connect, Airplay, Bluetooth A2DP, and DLNA support.

Watch Your Favorite Videos in Ultra HD 4K

Every HiFi Rose streamer goes beyond audio with a 4K capable HDMI output for video. HiFi Rose's custom RoseTube app delivers YouTube content with a custom interface that is optimized for music lovers. You’ll find curated music videos, concerts, and be able to connect to your own YouTube account. TIDAL subscribers also have access to a large library of iconic music videos as well as unique TIDAL video content. The VIDEO app provides access to your locally stored media, whether on the internal storage, or networked drive.

Internal Storage Options and Local Digital Music Libraries

Easily add a 2.5-inch SSD hard drive inside your HiFi Rose to store your local music collection. This also unlocks additional functionality, including the ability to cache your most played music on TIDAL and videos on RoseTube to maintain error-free playback even when your internet connection isn’t at 100%.

Linear Power Circuit Design

The full linear power supply provides a clean, reliable power supply to the CPU and audio output circuits. The design blocks noise that could potentially affect the sensitive DAC; the result is crystal-clear playback.

CD Playback & CD Ripping

With the RS201E, you can play and rip music on a CD by connecting our optional RSA-780 external CD drive via USB. You can extract the sound source from CDs as WAV or FLAC files and save them to SSD or USB.

Operate with Your Mobile Device or Remote Control

The Rose Connect remote control app completes the ultimate user experience letting allows users to conveniently control and manage HiFi Rose devices. The remote control app works on various platforms, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones, and PC. Additionally, you can control the device simply and easily using the provided Bluetooth remote control.
