The RS520 is an advanced, high-performance integrated amplifier and network streamer combo packing the main functions of existing all-in-one streamers into a single component with a powerful output of 200 watts per channel.
Solid Build Quality
The RS520’s chassis is milled from a solid highly-durable aluminum block. This process creates an extremely rigid frame that significantly reduces noise-generating micro-vibrations that can degrade sound quality.
Connect With Your Audio
The RS520’s 12.6-inch touchscreen does away with knobs and dials while HiFi Rose’s native ROSE OS software creates a completely immersive interface letting you control your music with just the swipe of a finger. The front panel can display album art and music videos (capable of video playback at 60 fps) or custom VU meters.
Powerful, Cool, Quiet, and Efficient
Offering 200 watts per channel, the RS520 is all you need to build a true audiophile system. Utilizing the same GaN FET technology found in HiFi Rose’s flagship RA180 amplifier “dead time” is dramatically reduced by one-third. To increase efficiency Power factor correction (PFC) is applied enabling the unit to respond to a wide range of input power, and to run cool, without noise or hum.
The Best Streaming Built-In
All your favorite streaming platforms are readily available via HiFi Rose’s Rose Connect app with support for Apple Music, TIDAL, Qobuz, Bugs, Rose Tube, and internet radio stations. RS520 is Roon Ready with Spotify Connect, Airplay, Bluetooth A2DP, and DLNA support.
Watch Your Favorite Videos in Ultra HD 4K
Every HiFi Rose streamer goes beyond audio with a 4K capable HDMI output for video. Our custom RoseTube app delivers YouTube content with a custom interface that is optimized for music lovers. You’ll find curated music videos, concerts, and be able to connect to your own YouTube account. TIDAL subscribers also have access to a large library of iconic music videos as well as unique TIDAL video content. The VIDEO app provides access to your locally stored media, whether on the internal storage, or networked drive.
Internal Storage Options and Local Digital Music Libraries
Easily add a 2.5-inch SSD hard drive inside your HiFi Rose to store your local music collection. This also unlocks additional functionality, including the ability to cache your most played music on TIDAL and videos on RoseTube to maintain error-free playback even when your internet connection isn’t at 100%.
CD Playback & CD Ripping
With the RS201E, you can play and rip music on a CD by connecting our optional RSA-780 external CD drive via USB. You can extract the sound source from CDs as WAV or FLAC files and save them to SSD or USB.

The Rose Connect remote control app completes the ultimate user experience letting allows users to conveniently control and manage HiFi Rose devices. The remote control app works on various platforms, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones, and PC.
