The RS250 has been designed with a full linear power supply that provides a clean and reliable power supply to the CPU and audio output circuits. The use of a linear power supply results in the minimisation of noise inflow significantly, and the ideal circuit layout employed eliminates electrical noise, and creates dramatically improved sound quality without distortion.

Its highly precise femto clock helps the RS250 deliver superb stereoscopic, and distortion-free sound with quiet and clear background imaging. With built-in ESS flagship DAC, this delivers a low-noise, low-distortion and ultra-high-resolution sound, and rich analogue density that supports PCM 32 bit / 768kHz and Native DSD512 (22.5792MHz).
