Connect the Powernode 2i 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 2i 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.

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.

All Bluesound Gen 2i models are designed to support AirPlay 2 - With AirPlay 2, Gen 2i owners can stream just about any sound from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac to their Bluesound system — all in sync. Customers can stream music, books, and podcasts from their favorite apps, or watch videos on their Apple device while streaming the audio through to their Gen 2i Player – imagine watching Netflix or YouTube on an iPad while filling the room with premium sound from a Bluesound system.

AirPlay 2 also gives users more options for control, including using Siri for voice assistance. Once you add your Gen 2i Player to the Apple Home App on your iPhone or iPad, Apple Music subscribers can use their iOS device or HomePod to say things like: “Hey Siri, play smooth jazz in the Living Room” or “Hey Siri, turn it up in the Kitchen.”

Gen 2i contains Bluesound’s most advanced take on Bluetooth to date - two-way Bluetooth, featuring both Receive and Transmit functionality. Receive capability allows users to wirelessly stream from their device to a Bluesound Player just like they're used to doing with Gen 2. The Transmit capability means the user can now use their Bluesound Gen 2i Player as a source, sending what they are listening to via Bluetooth to a pair of wireless headphones.

While Bluesound has improved the Bluetooth connectivity in Gen 2i, engineers also made sure that audio quality improvements are part of the Gen 2i Bluetooth story. The advanced Qualcomm CSR8675 chip used in these new products also supports aptX HD Bluetooth wireless audio. aptX HD is an enhanced codec that supports 24-bit audio over Bluetooth and has been engineered to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in lower background noise. With the ability to support streams up to 24bit/48kHz, a customer streaming from an aptX HD compatible device to a Gen 2i Player is actually able to listen to better-than-CD quality, wirelessly.
