Anyone try the Rose RS180 Integrated?

An integrated amp with a Steampunk design. Looks like something H.G.  Wells would design. Anybody own one or at least demoed it? 


I managed to hear one in the UK (one of the first here) and was really impressed, having not gone head over heels with other Class D amps. I am hoping to get another one back with the Rose 150B as well. My thoughts so far:


I saw a review that was not impressive for a unit at that price. Sound wise you can do much better according to review but Looks's peachy keen !


@oddiofyl which amp is this? Love the classic looks

Agree, quite lovely indeed, but aimed at a very different demographic of listener and buyer.800 watt versus 8-watt output power. Near polar opposite shoppers/objectives here.


I believe I heard the the integrated HI FI rose  connected to Piega speakers at Axpona this year , my top two best sounding system in the show, the other one is the Magico set up with synergistics Cables.Thats a good integrated amp.
