HiFi Rose RS130 Ultimate Network Transport
HIGH-PERFORMANCE NETWORK TRANSPORT
HiFi Rose components are known for their brilliant user interface, rock-solid connectivity, and exceptional sound and build quality. The RS130 network transport uses exacting technology to deliver the cleanest, clearest possible rendering of your digital music and 4K video files while maintaining HiFi Rose's super-intuitive and beautiful touchscreen control.
"TRANSPORT ONLY" — SEPARATE DAC REQUIRED
Unlike its cousin, the RS150B, this streamer is a network transport only and requires connection to an outboard digital-to-analog converter (DAC) or your favorite receiver, amp, or preamp with a built-in DAC. Using separate, dedicated components for streaming and digital-to-analog conversion can help you get the best possible sound quality.
ENJOY 4K VIDEO
Endless video digressions await you, thanks to the RS130's 4K video decoding and 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.
VERSATILE DIGITAL CONNECTIONS
On the back panel you have ample digital outputs for connecting to your DAC of choice. They include coaxial, optical, AES/EBU, and an advanced, high-resolution audio-only I2S HDMI output.
The RS130's super-accurate built-in OCXO clock maintains a constant working temperature. That helps it keep timing errors that can smear musical detail to a very low level. You also get inputs for adding an external master clock generator for even cleaner, more precise, jitter-free digital audio signals.
FLEXIBLE LOCAL STORAGE OPTIONS
The RS130 has a total of three USB-A ports for local access to digital music files. (You'll use one port for the included Wi-Fi/Bluetooth dongle.) It's even got 256GB of onboard caching memory that helps keep playback super-stable and delay-free.
And all HiFi Rose models include an internal bay on the bottom panel for adding optional SSD storage. The transport will recognize drives up to 4TB, which is much more than you'll probably ever use.
