Henley Audio are delighted to announce a new distribution agreement with HiFi Rose, a Korean specialist in high-end audio streaming technology. As sole UK distributor for a wide variety of HiFi equipment brands from across the globe, Henley Audio are delighted to add their first ever Korean partner to their portfolio.

Sean Kim, Director of Communication and Media Sales at HiFi Rose, says of the new distribution arrangement: “We hope that HiFi Rose’s entry into the UK market will bring new pleasure to music lovers. We hope you enjoy the original high-quality music provided by HiFi Rose products with 4K video.”

Managing Director of Henley Audio, Laurence Armstrong, says of the new relationship: “We could not be more excited about handling the UK and Ireland rollout of the HiFi Rose brand. What their team have produced is a truly exceptional user experience, housed in products that deliver both acoustically and aesthetically. Integrating the control interface through touchscreens in the way they have (while still also delivering a full feature app for remote control) is truly unique, and there is almost no aspect of the musical signal they are not in complete control of.

Since our first experience with their products we have been instant fans, and we believe there will be many new enthusiasts popping up across the UK as the RS150 and RS201 E begin to spread through our dealer network.”

With immediate effect, Henley Audio will be offering sales, technical support, service and marketing for all HiFi Rose products in the UK and Ireland. The full range is available to view right now at www.henleyaudio.co.uk, with stock also available in stores now. Carried models will include the RS201 E integrated streamer and the flagship RS150 streamer/pre-amplifier.
