The major update changes the way apps from the ROSE Store can be installed locally, aligns new high-resolution music titles in TIDAL, adds interactivity for registered ROSE users, and adds new features and user experience, including a dedicated Audirvana_DNLA (UPnP) service for the Audirvana player , convenient auto-shutdown timer settings Auto Standby Mode and much more.
A request to update to version 4.15.12 should appear automatically when connecting ROSE network players ( RS130 / RS150(B) / RS201(E) / RS250 / RS520 ) to the Internet. If the request does not appear, the update can be started by force by calling the Update command in the Settings menu, submenu “System Information”.
To fully utilize all the features of ROSE firmware version 4.15.2, you must update the ROSE Connect Premium remote control mobile app for Android to version 22.214.171.124 and for iOS to version 4.08. 06 . Be sure to update the application!
Please note that due to changes on the Qobuz music subscription service side, you cannot log into your Qobuz app account directly from your ROSE device. To log into your Qobuz account, you can use the ROSE Connect Premium mobile application.
Also note that in previous versions of the software, the main applications from the ROSE Store were pre-installed on the device and the user could only add new applications when they appeared in the store. In the new firmware, the user has the opportunity to initially select only those applications that he needs. A side effect of this functionality change is that some of the apps you previously installed will need to be reinstalled from the ROSE Store. But now the user can easily select, add and delete applications that are visible on the main screen of the ROSE network player, saving memory and processor resources and facilitating ease of use.
