News, today of the new all-in-one streaming amplifier from HiFi Rose, called the HiFi Rose RS520. The HiFi Rose RS520 has a streaming platform, based on the RS150 network streamer, and an integrated amplifier based on the stunning RA180, which is due to arrive at HF&MS in the next couple of weeks. Based on our experience of the RS250, a more affordable version of the RS150, the package will be a real head turner.
The aluminium-clad HiFi Rose RS520 has a claimed 250W per-channel output of Class AD power (advanced Class D) that feature Gallium Nitride FETs in the amplifier stage. The streaming platform, based on its own Rose OS system, supports most streaming platforms including Tidal, Qobuz, Apple Music, Spotify and Roon. There is a built-in equaliser for a bit of fun and an analogue HDMI eARC as well as Bluetooth support. The now characteristic touch screen at the front is 32 cm wide with a 1920 x 515 resolution LCD panel.
The HiFi Rose RS520 is retailing at £3,399.00 (SRP) and will be available during October 2022 throughout the UK HiFi Rose dealer network. The RS520 will be on display and demonstration for the first time at the UK Audio Show in October 2022, we’ll see you there. Full details are here.
