Borrowing state-of-the-art technologies from our award-winning sister company, NAD Electronics, the POWERNODE 2 can do everything the NODE 2 can do, plus effortlessly drive your choice of speakers.

Bluesound blends the forces of music and technology together in an ecosystem designed to deliver the best audio quality possible. Bluesound employs various architectures and technologies to achieve this, from advanced proprietary software to end-to-end hi-res audio processing. Harnessing the power of BluOS, consumers can wirelessly connect their Bluesound speakers and digital players, and stream any music file – MP3 to 24-bit/192kHz – as well as many popular music streaming services to any room in the home with the control of a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

While BluOS connects your devices, lossless audio technologies such as Hi-Res Audio (HRA) and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) allow you to hear your music in master quality just as the artist intended.

Connect the POWERNODE 2 easily to any existing loudspeakers to unlock and discover a world full of music streaming services and internet radio stations. Filled with a full array of analog and digital input/output, the POWERNODE 2 connects your speakers to all the music ever recorded. Online streaming services, internet radio and even your own digital music library imprisoned on a computer, smartphone or external drive – the playback choices become infinite.

Of course Bluesound is compatible with MP3s – and just about every other digital format ever created – but Bluesound was purpose-built for high-res audio. While other companies put a premium on style, Bluesound has spared no expense on the integration of advanced, innovative audio technologies that deliver blazingly fast error-free playback in maximum studio-master recording quality, resulting in absolutely unbeatable performance.

Using industry-leading 1GHz ARM Cortex-9 Multi-core processors, you’d think Bluesound was engineered for something more than just audio. Bluesound’s 32-bit architecture combined with 8x oversampling DAC platforms, ensures that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision and clarity – at any volume.

The POWERNODE 2 uses your home wireless network, and sets up quickly. With an advanced WiFi antenna design and blazing-fast ARM Cortex A9 Processors, Bluesound ensures that there are no skips or delays in every corner of your home – even when streaming high-res audio files. Play your music in perfect sync, or play different music simultaneously, to any player in any room.
