Bluesound Node Wireless Multi-Room Hi-Res Music Streamer - Gen 3

Introducing the NODE

Bluesound’s best-selling hi-res music streamer just keeps getting better! With every passing product generation, the Bluesound NODE has opened the eyes and ears of audiophiles all over the world to hi-resolution streaming, quickly becoming the HiFi industry standard of a modern, digital music source. The NODE is the perfect ‘just add streaming’ component for the quality-conscious music lover. Add it to any audio system – an amplifier, an AVR, or a pair of active loudspeakers – to unlock the endless possibilities of hi-res music streaming.

Bluesound continues to lead the HiFi streaming revolution, and the latest generation NODE represents technology upgrades and audio improvements that set the bar higher than ever before. What the previous generation Players did, the new NODE does better. On top of their next-gen processor platform, Bluesound has layered several improvements sure to delight the modern audiophile: a new and improved DAC design, an HDMI eARC input, an updated and intuitive touch control panel with proximity sensing, support for USB audio output to an external DAC, and a premium matte satin paint finish, ensuring the NODE fits seamlessly into any listening setup.

Bluesound’s mission is to bring hi-resolution, HiFi listening to everyday life. The NODE is the latest benchmark of this worthy pursuit – the perfect blend of audio quality, modern design, and value for the music lover.

Premium DAC Design

A brand-new DAC design, with differential output engaged, means that Bluesound's 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.

A True Hi-Fi 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 possibilities to unlock the full potential of your listening setup.

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.

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.
