Rose users, can you please share what Power Amp / Intergrated Amp to pair with your device? It will be interesting to see everyone’s choice. Thank you
RS250 here, but I use a Primaluna HP integrated amp. I also have the Hifi Rose attached to a Primaluna Evo 100 DAC.
I use Rotel rb1590 and 1582 mk II. Speakers elac vels fs490
Leben 300F connected to a pair of Cornwall IV’s.
J’utilise mon RS 250 avec un Accuphase E210 ( 15 ans d’âge ) avec enceintes Chario Academy Millenium même âge….et ça sonne très très bien .
Avec câbles Audioquest.
I use the Rose RS 250 with an amplifier already old Marantz PM-15S1 and speakers Jean Marie REYNAUD CANTABILE Signature; the sound is rather hot and and round, I love it !!
Before: Musical Fidelity M6si - warmer sound, more mids
Now: Gato Audio DIA-400s NPM - deeper bass, airy heights. delicate mids
Speakers: Dali Rubicon 8
Interconnects: Nordost Red Dawn
I use a Bryson 2.5B3 power amplifier with my RS150 connected via Audio Quest Yukon XLR interconnects.
I have Luxman 509 and Goldenear Triton reference
RS150 LinkedIn to Sansui-999, output throughout Cornwall😇
RS 250 via spdif to an Onkyo P-3000R Preamp, M-5000R Power amp to a pair of Klipsch, La scala speakers. awesome sound!
RS150B via Van Den Hull D102 mkIII RCA into Simaudio Mooon P3 pre then via same VDH into Cyrus X300s monos, to PMC Fact.3.
I found the built in pre to be too ‘clinical’ or flat and like the extra ‘colour’ or body that the pre-amp provides, (that’s when running direct to monoblocks via balanced cables)
PS. Can’t use the balanced output on the RS150B as this pre amp only has RCA inputs.
I I use a Kinki Studio EX-M7 power amp with my HIFI Rose RS-150 connected with balanced Townshend Audio F1 Fractal XLR cables. Looks and sounds great together.
RS-150B paired with McIntosh C53 Preamp and MC462 Amplifier.
With my 150B I use both Marantz SR 8015 AVR and Luxman 509X for 2 channel listening. Happy HIFI.
RS150B to McIntosh C2300 tube preamp, McIntosh MC 275 tube power amp, Spatial Audio Labs X5 open baffle speakers.
amplifier Musical Fidelity M6si
speakers Focal Aria
speaker cables Synergistic Research Foundation SC
I currently have Musical Fidelity M6Si and considering upgrading to Gato DIA-400. Sound wise, is it an upgrade to M6si. Thanks
