More details on the HiFi Rose RSA780E

Product Research


CD Drive: The HiFi Rose RSA780E CD drive can be used not only for CD Audio playback, but also for CD ripping to a HiFi Rose RS150 or RS250 network streamer, as well as the HiFi Rose RS201 network integrated amplifier. Each HiFi network component features an intuitive UI interface that provides easy operation and recording. With the exclusive Rose Connect OS application (for Apple iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac), you can conveniently import songs from CDs to the HiFi Rose network component with just one touch.

  • The RSA780 CD drive will only playback CD Audio files on a 4.7" (12cm) CD Audio disc. It does not support CD-R, CD-RW, or other disc types. It does not support 3.5" (8cm) discs. CD Audio music tracks from the RSA780E can be saved as FLAC, FLAC (compression), and WAV audio formats on a compatible HiFi Rose network component (sold separately).
  • The HiFi Rose RSA780E CD drive is not a CD recorder. You cannot record audio content from another source onto the RSA780E CD Drive. However, you can rip CD audio discs from the RSA780E CD Drive onto a network storage device such as the HiFi Rose RS150, RS250, or RS201

Isolated Design: The HiFi Rose RSA780E CD drive features an anti-vibration, low-noise, isolated design with a slot-load CD mechanism..

  • USB Isolator Technology: The RSA780 CD driver adopts USB Isolator technology, making the CD Drive and your selected HiFi Rose network component completely separated electrically, so only pure music data without noise is transmitted through a USB 2.0 connection.
  • Integrated Insulators: The RSA780E incorporates high-performance insulators inside the CD drive that will minimize vibration. These integrated insulators help minimize the noise that can occur when the CD is running.

Operation Modes: You can select betwen Isolation Mode (Only Read) or Normal Mode (Read/Write). Isolation Mode provides a higher level of playback, while Normal Mode offers playback and ripping capability.

USB-B Port: The HiFi Rose RSA780E is outfitted with a USB Type-B 2.0 port that is used to connect the CD drive to a HiFi Rose RS150, RS250, or RS201 component (sold separately) using the included 2' USB-B to USB-A 2.0 data cable. The USB-B port and cable provide data transmission and power for the RSA780E CD drive.

RoseConnect Premium App: The RoseConnect Premium App (for Apple iOS 15.0+, Android OS 8.0+, Windows 7-up, and Mac OS X) allows you to conveniently operate the HiFi Rose eco-system from your compatible Apple iOS device, Android OS device, Windows PC, or Mac computer.

Unfortunately it does not. The RSA780 CD drive will only playback CD Audio files on a 4.7" (12cm) CD Audio disc. It does not support CD-R, CD-RW, or other disc types.
