”Bluesound reasserts its authority in the budget music streamer market.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 Product of the Year.

Award-winner made better

Regarded by critics and audiophiles alike as one of the best in its class, the latest Bluesound NODE is better than ever. A new and improved DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) ensures you get the best sound from the latest Bluesound platform. Connectivity is transformed by the HDMI ARC interface and USB audio output. The revised touch control panel makes it easier to use and, together with the new premium matte satin finish, makes it more stylish than ever.

Bluesound – the premium choice for music streaming
Since it was first established, Bluesound has been committed to the highest quality, easy to use multi-room streaming system. Hi-Res music playback is at the heart of Bluesound, which is just one of the reasons it sounds so good. Don’t just take our word for it though; take a look at the myriad of rave reviews. What Hi-Fi, Stuff, EISA and AVS Forum are just a few of the big publications and sites to award Bluesound their highest laurels.

Stream Hi-res music around your home - effortlessly
A wide range of Bluesound speakers and streamers let you set up a comprehensive music system around your home. Choose between Ethernet and advanced wi-fi for quick and easy set up with your existing home network. With a blazing-fast, Quad-Core, ARM processor at its heart, you can be assured of smooth, seamless sound with no skips or dropouts – even with Hi-Res music files. Play your music around your home in perfect sync or have different music playing in different rooms – the choice is yours.

Premium sound
As well as the powerful, Quad-Core ARM processor, the latest NODE uses a new design of differential, 32-bit/384kHz DAC. With a higher signal-to-noise ratio and lower distortion, you get to hear more detail, enhanced dynamics and a sound that’s more true-to-life – just as you’d expect from the audio streaming experts.

Access your favourite streaming services and more
Bluesound’s operating system, BluOS lets you stream, in Hi-Res, all your favourite music, podcasts and radio stations. Sync with personal music libraries via wi-fi and connect up to 200,000 tracks in lossless quality. Experience the studio quality sound of MQA music on Tidal, or connect and stream favourites with Apple AirPlay 2 and aptX HD Bluetooth.

Voice control compatible by Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant
Working with Apple AirPlay 2, the NODE can be voice controlled via Siri. Alternatively, connect to an Alexa or Google Assistant device and you can facilitate voice control via the Alexa or Google Assistant systems – the choice is yours.

Control by iOS, Android, Windows or Mac
With the Bluesound streaming system, you’re not stuck with a single operating system. Full control is possible with Apple iOS (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad) and Android smartphones and tablet. Desktop control is also possible via Windows Vista 7, 8, 10 and Apple macOS 10.10-10.15 and 11.

Connect to almost any system – wired or wireless
Whether you’re connecting to a hi-fi, AVR or speaker system, the NODE has you covered. For top quality Hi-res sound, take advantage of the HDMI ARC or USB audio outputs – ideal for connecting to an AVR or suitable DAC. Alternatively, there are also optical and coaxial digital outputs. For most hi-fi systems, simply connect to the AUX input via the RCA phono outputs. Want to go wireless? That’s not a problem for the NODE. You can connect to your Bluetooth speaker (or headphones) via the two-way aptX HD Bluetooth interface.

Stylish and unobtrusive
No bigger than a typical wi-fi router, the Bluesound NODE is discreet and unobtrusive. A choice of new, matte satin black or white finishes let it blend with your décor. If you don’t have your phone or tablet to hand, the revised touch sensitive interface makes direct control easier than ever.

Stream your music to a higher standard, with the Bluesound NODE.

Fantastic speaker savings when bought with this amplifier, call your local store or our telesales team, now!
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent streamer This is an excellent product. Easy to set up and the streaming quality is superb. The app works well and Tidal connect is an added plus. The only reason I haven’t given it five stars is because there is no Chromecast and some apps like BBC Sounds therefore only work through AirPlay which is not ideal. But if you’re looking for a quality streamer at a good price, this is the one. Much better than Wiim

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New price reduction made it even sweeter I have been putting off buying a streamer for years and having seen the price reduction on the Bluesound node v3 I went for it. As you will see in the pictures, I have an old audiophile system! I'm in the process of adding a second pair of ESL's on stands (hence the second amp). I knew I had to give in to a streamer eventually even though my various digital sources go through an old VDAC that suits my music and system very well. I plugged the Node in and set up both RCA and digital outputs in parallel and spent my entire Sunday listening to track after track. What can I say? £399 might just be the best buy I have ever had on a new Hifi product!! Its so good I cant believe I'm considering selling my VDAC to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge Audio AXA35 - Blusound Node gen3 I bought the Cambridge Audio AXA35 and the Blusound Node gen 3 from Richer sounds Bath store. Both items were on sale so I made a considerable saving. The amplifier is fantastic and really does punch above its weight. In combination with the Node the sound is incredibly detailed for the price. In fact it’s incredibly detailed regardless of the price. It’s also very clean sounding with excellent separation. Top end and bottom end are both excellent but the midrange is something special. Vocals are very realistic and a pleasure to listen to. I used the two items in conjunction with Acoustic Energy AE100 mk2 bookshelf speakers and the synergy really is something special. Go and watch Taran’s (British Audiophile) review on YouTube. Partnering cables were Chord Clearway interconnect and Chord Rumour X speaker cable. These were bought elsewhere and with 40% off. A great match for the system. I had it in mind to add an external dac but the dac in the Node is incredible and you’d have to spend an awful lot more to better it in my humble opinion. So, I’m sticking with what I have. All in all I’m delighted. A great system at low cost for my small room. A special mention for the salesman named Sean at the Bath store. He was professional, polite, knowledgeable but above all very patient with me and my endless questions. He’s also very good when it comes to demonstrations. A big thumbs up from me for Richer Sounds, Bath. Nick.
