Introducing the POWERNODE
Bluesound’s class-leading, hi-res music streaming amplifier just keeps getting better! Over the years, the Bluesound POWERNODE has welcomed a whole new generation of audiophiles into the world of hi-resolution streaming. The POWERNODE is the HiFi amp reinvented for the streaming age, combining audiophile-grade componentry and multi-room music capabilities to create an intuitive ‘just add speakers’ hi-res sound system for modern music lovers.
The newest generation POWERNODE represents technology upgrades and audio improvements that set the bar higher than ever before for the category. On top of the next-gen processor platform, Bluesound has layered several key improvements sure to delight the modern music lover: a DAC layout redesign, an updated and intuitive touch control panel with proximity sensing, a premium matte satin paint finish, and of course, most importantly – more power! The POWERNODE now offers 80W of power per channel, effortlessly driving your choice of speakers.
Bluesound’s mission is to bring hi-resolution, HiFi listening to everyday life. The POWERNODE is the latest benchmark of this worthy pursuit – the perfect blend of audio quality, modern design, and value for the music lover. Permission to turn it up, granted.
Turn It Up
Bluesound’s beloved amplifier platform now pumps out 80W per channel of authentic, understated HybridDigital™ power. It is the same signature HiFi sound, but more of it! Perfect for driving your choice of speakers, even with longer cable runs, and helping you get the most out of your setup.
The POWERNODE provides incredible flexibility for any HiFi setup. Start with BluOS, the world’s leading hi-res multi-room system that connects the POWERNODE to all the music ever recorded, and lets you stream audio all around the house. Add in an array of HDMI eARC, optical and analog inputs, support for Dolby surround sound home theater, and the fact that the POWERNODE fits perfectly in a CI rack, and you start to see just how many use cases there are for this versatile streaming amp.
Premium DAC Design
A redesigned DAC implementation, with differential output engaged, means that Bluesound's audiophile-grade streaming amplifier now sounds even better. The POWERNODE boasts a signal-to-noise ratio of -100dB and a distortion level of 0.008%, a notable performance enhancement over the previous model. In other words, the best-in-class just keeps getting better.
Intuitive Touch Controls
An elegant, full-glass interface with capacitive touch LED controls graces the top of the POWERNODE, providing you with an intuitive touchpoint for play, pause, volume, and presets. The POWERNODE 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.
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 POWERNODE is over-specified, designed to be a staple in your listening room for years and decades to come.
Satin Paint Finish
Bluesound Players are designed to fit into your everyday life. The POWERNODE 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 partnered up with your favorite loudspeakers, or when sitting on a stand powering HiFi sound for your TV –though, at the end of the day, it’s your ears that benefit most from the POWERNODE.
