HiFi Rose RS520 Network Streamer/Integrated Amplifier

 

Apart from its standout functionality, connectivity, and appearance — cue the customizable, 12.6-inch-wide, full-color, high-def touchscreen LED display — RS520 plays with smooth, rich sound distinguished by uncommonly low distortion and revealing quiet. Full MQA, 32-bit/768kHz PCM, and DSD512 playback attest to the nearly 18-pound device’s prowess with high-res streams and files. A trio of USB 3.0 inputs invite you to hear your disc collection through its premium DAC; just connect your CD or DVD player. RS520 can also connect to an external DAC, computer, NAS, phone, and/or tablet. 

Housed in a highly durable aluminum case in which all four sides were produced as one part to cut down on vibration and noise, the RS520 shirks on nothing. Whether you’re looking to stream music in audiophile fidelity; organize your collection; explore radio and podcast options; upgrade your AV experience; or simply control over your entertainment — RS520 can do it all (and do it extremely well).

Superb Engineering for Terrific Sound

The discrete HiFi Rose operational amplifier is designed for low noise and low distortion. The result is playback with clear, astonishing dynamics, featuring shimmering treble notes, authentic midrange, and ultra-deep bass.

Powerful, Cool, Quiet, and Efficient

Power factor correction (PFC) is applied for tremendous efficiency improvement, enabling the unit to respond to a wide range of input power, and to run cool, without noise or hum. The Class AD amplifier in the RS520 uses the GaN (gallium nitride) FET to dramatically reduce "dead time" by one third. RS520's equalizer function can set the frequency band for amplification and attenuation, and can adjust the bandwidth of the Q-factor for each frequency. Five frequency bands can be set, and each can be adjusted up to ±10dB.

Innovative HiFi Rose OS System

HiFi Rose performance is officially certified as High-Resolution Audio by the Japan Audio Society. HiFi Rose's proprietary OS system provides a unique listening environment, as well as the flexibility to seamlessly incorporate multiple HiFi Rose products into your system. In addition to playing and streaming high-res music, this ecosystem offers a variety of services, including 4K high-definition video playback, music-oriented YouTube listening, podcasts, various radio stations from around the world, CD playback, and CD ripping.
