The flagship RS150 is milled from a solid block of high-purity aluminum, uses a femto clock, and offers a large intuitive display. It offers I2S output, ARC input, and offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth only via an external dongle. One analog line-in is offered, allowing for it to function as a preamp.

Elevate both your listening room aesthetics and the sound of your system with this network streaming DAC with high-end audio performance and linear power supply, and many ways to directly and remotely control the unit.  

The Controls

HiFi Rose is rightly praised for its beautiful Ultra HD 4K touchscreen with a wide viewing angle and rich colors. It offers an intuitive and convenient interface, and also displays high-definition album information and plays back video at 60 FPS. Control is augmented with a front volume knob. 

The RS150 comes with a physical Bluetooth remote control, and can also be controlled via the ROSE Connect app for iOs or Android.

The DAC

The RS150 uses the ES9038PRO Sabre chip with proprietary processing that offers a low-noise, low-distortion, ultra-high-resolution sound with rich analog density. Sampling rates go up to PCM 32 bit/768 KHz and native DSD512 (22.5792 Mhz).

Many Ways to Play

Apart from all the expected online services, you can connect an optical drive via USB and play or rip CDs. There's Qobuz, Tidal, Spotify, internet radio, and much more, and the RS150 is Roon Ready. It is also fully MQA certified.

The RS150 allows onboard storage, and can recognize up to a 4 TB internal SSD and 10 TB external HDD. A MicroSD slot is also available. The RS150 will find and play music on your NAS and other music servers.

Watch high-res videos on the front screen from TIDAL Video, Bugs Video, and RoseTube.
