A reviewers’ favourite, made better
Already well regarded as the ‘best in class’ by many, the original NODE was hard to beat. With the new Bluesound NODE X, however, Bluesound have done just that and created a new class standard. Marking ten years (hence the ‘X’) of Bluesound, the NODE X features a premium ESS Sabre DAC, a built-in THX headphone amp and a sleek new silver finish.
Designed for the highest levels of sound quality
Developed to have the finest tech spec in its class, the NODE X exceeds many more expensive streamers. New to the ‘X’ is a premium ESS Sabre DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). Usually reserved for high-end hi-fi and AV products, this reference quality DAC gives the NODE X a real boost in its musical rendition. Coupled with this, a Quad-Core ARM processor helps gives deliver not just dynamic, true-to-life sound quality but slick operation, too.
Elevated headphone performance
As well as the new DAC, the NODE X also features a state of art headphone amplifier, with THX’s Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAA) technology built-in. THX AAA delivers incredibly smooth, linear sound with ultra-low levels of distortion. As well as truly lifelike sound, the amp also delivers a high current, dynamic output, meaning you can use a wider range of high-end headphones (plugged in via a hi-fi grade 6.35mm socket).
Bluesound – still the premium choice for music streaming
Since it was first established 10-years ago, 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.
