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.

The HiFi Rose RSA-780 CD Drive/Ripper is ideal for the music lover who wants to play CDs and/or rip them, and it is engineered to pair seamlessly with HiFi Rose streamers. RSA-780 can switch between two modes: one for pristine audio playback via a streamer, and one for reading or writing CDs.
