HiFi Rose says: “SIt is known that the human hearing range has an upper limit of 15 – 20KHz. So why would it be necessary to build an amplifier with a higher range? Thanks to modern research and experience, it may be a good time to question this belief. Temporal highs can extend well beyond 20KHz. For example, the trumpet has a frequency response that expands up to 100KHz. The HiFi Rose RA180 has an output range of 20Hz – 50Khz, 100Khz@-3dB, 200KHz @-6dB. The frequency response range is designed to be wide so that high resolution sound sources are not filtered out. This capability may be beyond the human audible range, but at a wide frequency, it faithfully reproduces the zone. The depth and breadth of the sound and the realism will contribute to the expression.”
