Bluesound POWERNODE (2021 Version)
JUST ADD SPEAKERS. The POWERNODE is the amp reinvented, the streaming amplifier that merges several traditional components into one and unlocks a world of high-fidelity streaming. A high-grade DAC delivers up to 24-bit/192 kHz of hi-res, studio-quality music, including support for FLAC, MQA, and other popular formats. Source, control, and amplification come packed into the compact and minimalist POWERNODE, allowing you to stream your music from dozens of sources to your favorite speakers effortlessly, in up-to 24-bit hi-res, with 80 watts per channel of low-distortion power. Permission to turn it up, granted.
HI-RES MUSIC. EVERYWHERE. One or many rooms, the POWERNODE is a versatile workhorse for any listening set-up. Just add speakers for a traditional 2-channel audiophile listening system. Add the wireless PULSE SUB+ to create an enhanced 2.1 listening experience. Bring in a pair of PULSE FLEX 2i as rear channel additions to create a Dolby® surround sound wireless home theatre. Or sprinkle other Bluesound players around your home for a whole-home multi-room audio solution. Additional hands-free controls are available through voice assistants like Siri, Google Voice, or Alexa. For professional smarthome installers, full-feature drivers are available for Lutron, Crestron, RTI, Elan, and other popular control systems.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS. The POWERNODE is equipped with an array of digital and analog inputs and outputs, including HDMI eARC, dual-band Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet, Apple Airplay2, aptX HD Bluetooth, digital optical, 3.5mm auxiliary, and USB Type-A connectors. Stream music through your POWERNODE from dozens of internet radio stations and premium streaming services, or connect Bluetooth devices, TV and gaming consoles, network or local hard drives, nearby Apple devices, CD players, and many others.
