HiFi Rose RS201E Integrated Power Amp and Network Streamer
The Hifi Rose RS201E is an Integrated Power Amp and Network Streamer with an 8.8-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth® connectivity for the utmost in user experience.
This amazing device offers playback of both Audio and Video files in a wide range of formats. From MP3 to FLAC and MP4 to 4k, the 201e allows you to play just about any type of media file you can throw at it! The 201E also makes quick work of finding the file you are looking for via its 8.8" touch screen.
If you are building a rig for your office, bedroom, or any setting in which you must keep the pieces of A/V hardware to a minimum, the HiFi Rose RS201E is worth investigating since it has a 100 Watt Integrated Power Amp built right in. Equal parts brain and brawn, the RS201E handles more file formats than I knew existed, is extremely easy to navigate via its touch-screen, and allows access to just about every piece of content ever put on the internet. Its 100-watt power section packs an impressive punch and means no additional power amp is required. Directly hook your speakers up to the RS201E and you are just moments away from enjoying some content in all its glory!
The RS201E also has the perfect array of ins and outs so it integrates with your other A/V gear with ease. Additional connectivity via WiFi (802.11 b/g/n/a/ac) 2.4Ghz/5Ghz Dual Band, Bluetooth 4.0, LAN, and Apple AirPlay make playback and controlling the device exceptionally easy. The forward-thinking designers at HiFi Rose also implemented USB, Micro USB, and SSD (via SATA 3.0) connectivity so getting that file to play has never been easier.
The HiFi Rose RS201E comes with a Bluetooth Remote Control to add another layer of functionality. Sure, the 8.8" touch-screen is extremely inviting but sometimes, you don't want to get up! Additionally, HiFI Rose has gone the extra mile by developing an App that allows for remote control of their products via your SmartPhone. The ROSE Connect Premium App is available for both Android and iOS Phones.
This is one of those products that offer such fresh functionality, that it will change the way you look at network streamers. The more I research and experience the RS201e, the more impressive it gets! It's a stellar product without the Rose Control App, the Memory Card Ports, and the ability to play podcasts (via iTunes) and terrestrial radio from literally AROUND THE GLOBE, but... it does offer those things along with unparalleled functionality! HiFi Rose is changing the game with their network streamers and their complementary products like their RSA780 CD Player and Ripper.
