Engineered for Exceptional Sound Quality

Every aspect of the RS520 is engineered to deliver high-quality sound. Internally, key functions are split across separate boards with individual power feeds for optimized operation. The use of the class-leading ES9038PRO DAC chip and ultra-precise femto clock ensures optimized conversion and signal handling in the digital stage.

The 250W per-channel power amplifier stage utilizes Class AD technology with Gallium Nitride FETs, resulting in a natural and pure analog-like tone.
