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.

INTUITIVE TOUCH CONTROLS 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.

A TRUE HIFI STREAMER The NODE stays true to its hi-res audio foundations while providing incredible flexibility for any HiFi setup. In addition to its own high-performance internal DAC, the NODE now supports USB Audio 2.0 output on the Type-A port, with the ability to send 24bit/192kHz digital audio via USB to a separate, external DAC of choice. Of course, you also get BluOS, the world’s leading hi-res multi-room system that connects the NODE to all the music ever recorded – endless possibility to unlock the full potential of your listening setup.

FUTURE FORWARD 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.+ THE INS AND OUTSAs the swiss-army-knife of HiFi streaming, the NODE features an array of digital and analog inputs and outputs. The new NODE now features an HDMI eARC input on the back panel, to keep your setup flexible and future-friendly. The NODE is designed to be as comfortable in a two-channel TV system as it is in an audiophile’s dedicated listening room, providing a hi-res experience no matter where it’s used.

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.
