HEGEL ROST - Integrated Network Amplifier with AirPlay and IP-control
Imagine a small, good looking, and incredibly versatile piece of audio kit that can power some of the most difficult loudspeakers you would ever want. Imagine a true high fidelity solution you can use with your iPhone, integrate in your “smart home” and that plays all your favourite music the way it was intended. No distortion of the original music signal. No distortion to the looks of your living room... you have just imagined the Rost.
“We wanted to create something beautiful... beautiful in sound, looks and connectivity. The Rost is all that. It is the sum of everything we have learned. A true one-stop amplifier. Something you would want to have on the top shelf.” Hegel Music System
The Hegel Rost can also mean “voice”, and the Rost is truly the “voice of Hegel”. With the patented SoundEngine amplifier technology, highly advanced preamplifier and delicately designed D/A-converter, the Rost sounds fluidly natural and dynamic. It preserves all the tiny details that create
the feeling of being there, and delivers deep, thundering bass when needed.
The Rost easily connects to any device you want: a CD-player, a streamer, a computer or perhaps Google Cast Audio? You can connect your iPhone, Macbook or even an AppleTV using AirPlay. Or maybe integrate a Sonos Connect? The choice is yours. The Hegel Rost is designed to make everyday devices sound as good as possible, and to make audiophile devices sound even better. We achieve this using proprietary technology developed in-house by Hegel.
The Rost is available in a smooth, white, painted, aluminium and steel chassis. Even the knobs are made of solid aluminium, and have the same comfortable touch. Together with the white, slightly dimmed OLED display, this is a unit you would easily have visible in the home. Ready to be used with your speakers or headphones. The Röst also comes with a remote control, made from a solid block of aluminum that is also IP-controllable, and therefore can be integrated in most smart home solutions
