Rose RS250 Streamer/Dac?


Hi--have any of you had any experience with the new Rose RS250 Streamer/Dac? Looks cool, but how does it sound?

@agolde1110 - Yes, if you connect the 250 via the USB digital output to a compatible DAC with balanced XLR outputs you can connect those into analog XLR inputs on a preamp or integrated amp. Hope that answers your question.

Unless one has a long cable run, I am assuming the difference between the RCA outs of the 250 and the XLR outs of the 150 are minimal

@aberyclark - That can be quite subjective and the degree of difference would likely vary with the level of electronics used and in particular if the amplification is fully balanced in design.

Nice work from rose engineers recently with the LDAC codec available when you use bluetooth. 

Now we can stream our daily discovery playlist lossless from Tidal connect with LDAC and bluetooth.
