BLUESOUND’s new NODE unlocks the world of hi-res music streaming and multi-room audio.
The NODE features a new audiophile-grade DAC design with notably improved performance that not only supports 24-bit/192kHz audio processing but also MQA for studio-quality listening. Powerful, user-friendly software features like tone controls and subwoofer crossover optimisation allow you to customise your listening preferences in detail.
It is also equipped with an array of digital and analogue inputs and outputs for maximum versatility. Bring music into your NODE using WiFi or Ethernet, Apple AirPlay 2, aptX HD Bluetooth, or USB Type A connectors, to hear audio content from streaming services, internet radio and your own music library.
The NODE now features an HDMI eARC input on the back panel, to keep your setup flexible and future-friendly.
Bit-perfect music listening can happen away from your hi-fi system with the NODE as your multi-room hub. The award-winning BluOS platform is the only platform in the world that can support up to 64 players, all streaming in 24-bit hi-res audio. With a growing stable of brands and devices being added to the BluOS platform, the NODE opens up a world of hi-res listening options throughout your home that no other player can.
In addition to using the BluOS Controller app with your smart devices, quick access controls like play/pause, track skipping, and volume are available as touch panel controls, via voice assistants like Apple’s Siri, Amazon Alexa, or Google Voice, by programming your own IR remote or using the optional Bluesound RC1. The intuitive touch panel control with proximity sensor now also features 5 presets. Advanced controls, including tone controls 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.
