Our DSEE HX™ technology injects more life into your music, upscaling compressed files to near High-Resolution Audio quality. Restoring the subtleties of the original recording simulates the sound of a live performance.

Optimised for excellence

Because premium sound requires premium components

Beneath the beautiful brushed-aluminium finish and OLED display lie carefully engineered components that will revolutionise the way you listen. A high-precision clock generator works to improve digital-to-analog conversion accuracy, while a separated digital block ensures minimal noise from interference. Each component has its own dedicated circuit to optimise performance.

Enjoy cleaner tone from a highly rigid chassis

The RSX-GS9 has the highest rigidity ever realized in a receiver chassis. This minimizes internal and external vibrations, achieving ultra-low distortion even in a harsh in-car environment.

Pure, undistorted audio

Separated chassis blocks for optimum performance

The dual-layer design of the chassis separates the analog circuitry from the digital, preventing noise for uncompromised sound quality.

Operation amp
