+TURN IT UP
Bluesound’s beloved amplifier platform now pumps out 80W per channel of authentic, understated Hybrid Digital TM power. It is the same signature HiFi sound, but more of it! Perfect for driving your choice of speakers, even with longer cable runs, and helping you get the most out of your setup.
An elegant, full-glass interface with capacitive touch LED controls graces the top of the NODE, providing you with an intuitive touchpoint for play, pause, volume and presets. The NODE also features a proximity sensor, ensuring that the array of LEDs on the top panel do not cause any unwanted light pollution, only turning on as you place your hand close –when the controls are needed.
The POWERNODE provides incredible flexibility for any HiFi setup. Start with BluOS, the world’s leading hi-res multi-room system that connects the POWERNODE to all the music ever recorded, and lets you stream audio all around the house. Add in an array of HDMI eARC, optical and analog inputs, support for Dolby surround sound home theater, and the fact that the POWERNODE fits perfectly in a CI rack, and you start to see just how many use cases there are for this versatile streaming amp.
The next generation Bluesound quad-core processor boasts all the power and speed required for the latest and greatest audio processing, with built-in headroom for whatever technologies the future may hold. In that sense, the NODE is over-specified, so it can be a staple in your listening room for years and decades to come.
+PREMIUM DAC DESIGN
A brand-new DAC design, with differential output engaged, means that our
audiophile-grade streamer now sounds even better. The NODE boasts a signal-to-noise ratio of -113dB and a distortion level of 0.002%, a notable performance enhancement over the previous model. In that sense, the NODE just may be the most affordable high-end audio component on the planet.
+SATIN PAINT FINISH
Bluesound players are designed to fit into your everyday life. The NODE is no different. The matte satin body, available in either a Black or White finish, blends seamlessly into any décor. Easy to clean and keep free of unwanted dust and grime, it looks great when stacked alongside your most-loved audio gear –though at the end of the day, it’s your ears that benefit most from the NODE.
