HiFi Rose RS 201E Music Streamer Amplifier
RS 201E by HiFi Rose is the ultimate streaming device, and is a must-consider option for those who want the latest technologies delivered in the most user-friendly way.
Supporting the latest high-resolution PCM 32-bit / 384 kHz and Native DSD (11.2 MHz) technologies, RS201E is designed to provide a vivid and dynamic sound through its reference quality digital stage.
High-speed driver variation techniques and an embedded pure path Ultra HD power amplifier provide superb audio quality with ultra-low distortion whether used as a fixed level source, a pre-amplifier or as a full integrated amplifier. The RS201E amplifier is more than just a convenience, it is a sonically capable and well refined device.
Play music and video files from a local storage device (USB, MicroSD or SATA), or access files elsewhere on your home network with a DLNA connection to NAS drives or other storage.
The MUSIC app gives a clean presentation of all your connected music sources, and is easy to navigate and use. The RS201E also features built-in apps for TIDAL and QOBUZ, giving complete access to their extensive high-performance streaming libraries.
The Tidal app even gives access to music video streaming for playback on the RS201E screen or via the HDMI output. The RS201E is also an MQA decoder, for full playback of Tidal Masters content.
The CD and CD RIPPING apps allow you to attach any standard external CD-ROM drive for convenient CD playback, or to rip CDs in highest-quality to any local storage device in a quick and intuitive way, all through the touch-screen interface.
The RADIO and PODCAST apps give you access to extensive live radio and podcast databases, while ROSE TUBE gives you access to YouTube for high-quality music and video playback.
ROSE OS also offers support for Roon Ready, Spotify Connect and AirPlay, effectively bringing your entire digital audio experience into one elegant product.
Your RS201E also functions as a complete digital hub and pre-amplifier, for a fully customised system set-up. With an extensive array of hardware inputs and outputs, most of which can be customised or adjusted to suit the exact environment, you can achieve greater control over your whole system than ever before.
There is also the option to connect to networks via ethernet (preferred), or by Wi-Fi. There's also built-in Bluetooth connectivity, which in combination with the supplied Bluetooth remote control gives extensive control over most of the ROSE OS system.
In combination with ROSE OS, the RS201E leaves no stone unturned, taking complete control of your listening experience, optimising it for the very best experience. The 8.8-inch touch screen, mounted in a high-purity aluminium chassis, has been integrated into one piece to maximise thermal efficiency; it is a product that feels as high-quality as its feature list would suggest.
