The Bluesound POWERNODE is successor to the popular Bluesound PowerNode 2i. This third generation POWERNODE is a network player with a high-quality, energy-efficient power amplifier. With this complete streaming solution, enjoy music via internet radio, streaming services or via a media server in the highest possible sound quality.
POWERNODE is like the popular Bluesound NODE, but also features a powerful built-in power amplifier. This power amplifier has even more power than its predecessor and delivers audiophile-quality sound with an output power of 80 watts per channel. This high-quality Class D power amplifier lets you experience even the smallest details and nuances in the music. All you need is a POWERNODE and a set of good sounding speakers to enjoy your favorite music to the fullest.
The Bluesound app allows you to stream music from thousands of Internet stations or access your digital music library stored on your media server. Prefer to stream music via Tidal, Qobuz, Juke or Spotify? It's just a matter of entering the subscription details and you have instant access to an unlimited music library online. In addition, Bluesound supports MQA and high-res music files up to 24bit and 192kHz in PCM. As of now you can listen all your favourite TIDAL Masters in studio quality.
With the BluOS app for iOS or Android, you can play any music source in your Bluesound multiroom environment in just a few seconds. POWERNODE also offers the possibility to listen to analogue and digital music sources. For example, connect a record or CD player with the stereo line input, or simply connect your television through HDMI-eARC or digital Toslink input to the POWERNODE and enjoy your favourite artists in image and sound. If you prefer to stream these sources (wirelessly) to another Bluesound device in your home, then this is also possible by use of the BluOS app. That's how powerful Bluesound's multiroom streaming platform really is.
Better and more powerful
The Bluesound POWERNODE, like its predecessor, features dual-band Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth. This POWERNODE is also equipped with voice control and is both Dolby and ROON certified. New is the beautiful glass top panel with touch controls and proximity sensor, preset buttons and a 'swipeable' volume control. Now you don't necessarily need the app to put on your favourite music or change inputs. Much can now be controlled from the top of the product. This makes this already easy-to-operate Bluesound POWERNODE even more intuitive.
This renewed POWERNODE has received several upgrades over the Gen2i model. Besides the next-gen streaming platform with even more processing power, this POWERNODE has a new and improved DAC design with a lower signal-to-noise ratio and even lower distortion figures. The POWERNODE also features an HDMI eARC input and a USB audio output, allowing it to be combined with even more external DACs. The new POWERNODE has a matte satin lacquer finish that blends seamlessly into any interior.
