BEAUTY AND BRAINS.

Don't let the size and minimalist looks of the NODE fool you into diminishing its capabilities.

Along with powerful software features like tone controls and fixed volume output, you can customise your listening preferences in detail.

PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS.

Bring music into your NODE using HDMI eARC, Wi-Fi or Ethernet, Apple AirPlay 2, aptX HD Bluetooth, or USB, to hear audio content from streaming services, TV, and your own music library. Listen to your music through your HiFi system or through wired or wireless headphones, by connecting to the RCA, TOSLINK optical, aptX HD Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, Apple devices, or other Bluesound or BluOS players.

CONTROL FREAK.

Quick access controls like play/pause, track skipping, and volume are available as touch panel controls at the top of the NODE, via voice assistants like Siri, Alexa, or Google Voice, or by programming your own IR remote or the optional Bluesound RC1. Advanced controls, including tone controls, subwoofer crossover optimization, and settings to enhance external DAC connections are available in the BluOS Controller app. The NODE can also be integrated into a smart home with full-feature drivers for Lutron, Elan, RTI, Crestron, and other popular home control systems.

Hi-Fi Choice Recommended

...tonal darkness that lends it a force and urgency I find tremendously appealing. The space or three dimensionality of the performance, the Node delivers a force and urgency.

No less impressive is the balance of tonal realism...has a pleasing level of three dimensionality to it.

Plenty of fine detail and control...a very satisfying experience...its performance as a Roon Endpoint is seamless.

...a supremely capable piece of equipment...this is still the best self-contained streamer you can buy for the price.

Energetic and engaging sound; excellent spec and control interface.

A quite exceptional affordable streamer that combines a comprehensive spec with sparkling sonics
