Description

The Bluesound Powernode 2i connected amplifier is an amplified and slightly improved version of the brand’s best buy. In reality, it takes 98 % of the functions and performances of its predecessor. Why make changes when it works wonders?

BLUESOUND POWERNODE 2i: NEW FEATURES

The two main improvements are the adding of the AirPlay 2 for an easy integration with Apple and the possibility to connect the Powernode 2i to Amazon’s “Alexa Voice” system.

We also notice that the Bleutooth aptX becomes in 5.0 HD version!

BLUESOUND POWERNODE 2i: COMPATIBILITY

It takes all the functions of the Bluesound Node 2i. It allows you to listen to streaming music and be connected to Internet radios as well as online music services.

The Bluesound Powernode 2i is also compatible with compressed formats such as MP3 format and most of the available formats. However, Bluesound created it above all for music in High Definition studio-master.

It also allows the access to your iTunes library and audio files downloaded and stored on your NAS USB. Without use a computer, you have access to your music library.

BLUESOUND POWERNODE 2i: CHARACTERISTICS

You can connect this Bluesound Powernode 2i amp to various Bluesound speakers. Now, you can share your music and stream with a studio quality in all the rooms of your home.

For that, Bluesound has equipped its Powernode 2i with an exclusive Hybrid Digital amplification, designed by NAD Electronics, the subsidiary. This one is associated to a DAC offering a 32 bit 192 kHz resolution.

The power of 60 watts in 8 ohms is comfortable enough to power most the 2-way Hi-Fi speakers, even the small audiophile tower speakers.

This amplification brings excellent dynamics, precision and current capacity to the HD listening. It allows for high volume listening without distortion or dynamic compression.

The Bluesound Powernode 2i processes HD audio files up to resolutions of 24 bit/192 kHz of FLAC, ALAC or WMA-Lossless types, and shared of your local network, as long as it is connected to it.

BLUESOUND POWERNODE 2i: INSTALLATION

The Bluesound Powernode 2i connected amplifier is simply an integrated amplifier!

You just have to connect it to the network and link it to a pair of Hi-Fi speakers to enjoy its musicality!

You can control it via application for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and for Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

BLUESOUND POWERNODE 2i: TEST AND LISTENING

There is a surprising restitution for a small box.

The music is reproduced with clarity, definition and dynamism. It is more powerful as the files used are of high resolution.

The bass is articulated and dynamic. The midrange/treble is clear and perfectly integrates to the registers, without aggressiveness.

It enables HD music reproduction with an outstanding musicality.

With HiRes files, the Bluesound Powernode 2i connected amp widens the gap with the competition, such as Sonos products (without naming them). The balance is very successful and we quickly forget that we are listening to a device for less than 1000 euros!
