Overview

HiFi Rose’s RS520 is an integrated amp, streamer, DAC, and preamp, all rolled into one compact and luxurious component. It’s got bountiful clean power, flexible connections for your sources, and HiFi Rose’s user-friendly onboard customized touchscreen Android™ OS. All you need to get started is this unit and your favorite set of speakers.

Audiophiles will appreciate its authoritative but smooth sound. I also love the cool touchscreen features, like the functional virtual back panel for switching inputs and outputs and the virtual VU meters. And it’s got top-notch build quality: four sides of its sturdy aluminum chassis are constructed as a single piece to resist vibrations and protect the first-rate internal circuitry.

Easy control
The RS520 connects to your internet via Ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi. The interface is intuitive whether via its front-panel touchscreen or the free RoseConnect Premium app for Apple® and Android devices.

It organizes your different streaming sources — from music services including TIDAL, Qobuz, and Spotify, to music files stored in one of its onboard options or your NAS server. You can also use Apple AirPlay® or Roon to control the streamer, or the included Bluetooth remote.

Advanced hybrid amplification
The RS520 uses an innovative amplifier circuit design that HiFi Rose calls “Class AD.” Like more typical Class D amps, it uses a “switching” design. But the RS520’s GaN (Gallium nitride) FET topology sweetens the sound by speeding up the timing between switches — up to 10 times faster than typical silicon FET switching devices.

This amplifier can deliver 250 watts of clean power to your speakers, and it’s stable down to 4 ohms. That means you can hook up demanding, tougher-to-drive speakers and get great results.

High-res DAC
The RS520 runs on a snappy six-core CPU with a high-performance ESS SABRE DAC capable of 32-bit/768kHz resolution with PCM sources or DSD up to 22.4 MHz (DSD512). That means you’ll get rich, detailed sound with a quiet noise floor and low distortion.

4K video on board
The RS520 can decode 4K video via its HDMI 2.0 output. The RoseTube app lets you peruse and play YouTube videos that you can watch on the unit’s full color screen or — even better — on your TV. And its digital audio inputs let you get beautiful soundtrack audio from whatever you might be watching.

Flexible connections
On the back panel you have ample connections, including an unbalanced analog preamp output for connection to an outboard amplifier, and an RCA stereo analog input. You could connect a USB drive, HiFi Rose RSA780E CD drive, or another CD player — even a turntable with a phono preamp.

Super HL5plus XD Loudspeakers Overview

Harbeth Super HL5 Plus XD produces breathtaking transparency, a huge soundstage and total immersion in the performance. This speaker creates a rich bass and sweet midrange that brings acoustic music alive.

Crafted by hand by experts in West Sussex, the HL5 Plus XD conveys breathtaking clarity and dynamics

The Harbeth company was founded forty years ago to commercialise the BBC’s loudspeaker R&D. Today’s Harbeth loudspeakers are much more transparent, more vivid, more dynamic, more open and more real because the enabling technology – and that has made them one of the top selling and most loved brands at Hi-Fi Corner. Book a demo and you’ll hear for yourself how these speakers are in a class of their own for natural sound.

Harbeth have created almost their own cult following, the disciples staying with the brand for years and even decades.

This is the latest generation of Dudley Harwood’s original HL-Monitor: the cabinet is still engineered in the BBC tradition of removable ‘thin-wall’ panels for a totally true-to-life sound.

Retaining the classic ‘two cubic foot’ proportions found in the very best BBC monitors, the HL5plus relies on the exclusive Harbeth-made 200mm RADIAL2™ bass/mid driver. This produces a big, warm and powerful sound that underpins the incredible midband clarity.

The 25mm main tweeter is augmented by a 20mm SuperTweeter for an extended and even dispersion to the upper edge of the audio band.

RS520 Advanced All-in-One Network Streamer Features:

Unchangeable Value:
The design of the RS520 focused on values ​​that did not change over time.
A refined design that will not change over time and a bold ventilation hole for heat dissipation represent a gentleman with both functionality and enterprising appearance.

Integral Aluminum Housing:
The housing of RS520, which is made with generous use of high-durability 6000 class aluminum material, is manufactured by an all-in-one process in which four sides are produced as one part.
The all-in-one manufacturing process is the most ideal method to fundamentally block vibrations that may occur between separated parts, significantly reducing noise waves that can affect sound quality.

12.6 Inch Wide LCD Touchscreen:
Visible audio is emphasized using Hi-Fi ROSE's spacious, wide-viewing-angle multi-touch LCD screen. With a size of 309*82.9 (mm) and a 1920*515 resolution LCD panel, you can enjoy a smooth and clear screen.

ES9038PRO DAC:
It is equipped with ES9038PRO, the flagship DAC chip of ESS technology, a world-class DAC manufacturer.
ES9038PRO has extremely low total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N) of -122 ㏈, and dynamic range (DNR) of 140 ㏈, making it the industry's best DAC chip. The maximum sampling frequency and bit rate are PCM 768 ㎑, 32 bit, and DSD512 is supported.

ES9038PRO significantly reduces software implementation time compared to previous products to reduce system cost, and minimizes gain error between devices by automatically adjusting gain.
In addition, it is equipped with ESS technology's exclusive jitter canceller to provide exceptional audio clarity. Seven low-delay filters allow you to play music that meets the needs of a wide range of users.

GaN based Class AD Amplifier:
In order to achieve the perfect class-D amplifier design, switching operation speed and accuracy must be ensured. However, due to the limitations of silicon FET, the linearity is weak compared to class-A or class-AB, which limits the ability to produce natural sounds.
The class-AD amplifier mounted on RS520 uses a new material GaN (gallium nitride) FET to dramatically reduce the "dead time" by 1/3 to maximize linearity.
Please enjoy the powerful output of 250 W per channelwith Hi-Fi ROSE's class-AD amplifier that maximizes operating speed and accuracy to achieve the perfect class-D amplifier structure.
