”Putting power behind the Node makes for a superb streaming system.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Award-winner made better

Regarded by critics and audiophiles alike as one of the best in its class, the latest Bluesound POWERNODE is better than ever. With a third more power than before, the 80 watt HybridDigital amp effortlessly powers you choice of speakers, to deliver room-filling sound. Meanwhile, the improved, Differential DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) implementation enhances the sound quality. 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.

Play your music around your home in perfect sync or have different music playing in different rooms – the choice is yours.

Just add speakers
Featuring a built-in, 80 watt HybridDigital amp, you simply need to add your choice of speakers for top quality sound. The high power rating means that the POWERNODE effortlessly powers your speakers, meaning you can use all sizes of speakers in all types of room shapes and sizes.

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 POWERNODE 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 your other sources
More than just a wireless music steamer, the POWERNODE acts as the hub of your system. Inputs include HDMI ARC and twin 3.5mm inputs that are suitable for analogue or optical digital signals. These are ideal for connecting your TV, games console and even your CD player. For playing back stored music files, there’s also a USB input. Want to go listen to headphones? With the POWERNODE, you’ve got the choice of a wired or Bluetooth wireless connection – covering almost every type of design.

Stylish and unobtrusive
No bigger than a typical wi-fi router, the Bluesound POWERNODE 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powernode 2021 even better than the PowerNode 2i I sold my old Powernode to my son as a favour and risked an upgrade. Well worth it. Coupled with Tidal and some Kef LS50 Metas the sound is really impresive with several 'wow' moments. I am really pleased with this purchase and, as always, Kaz was really helpful and offered great advice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible power from such a small unit I bought this because I wanted Tidal connect in a small unit that will fit on the shelf with my TV using my current speakers. The sound quality is amazing and even had some features I wasn't aware of that are brilliant. The remote learning function has allowed my sky remote to do the volume, the inputs can be set to be auto sense (so it always returns to my TV when not using Tidal) and the sound quality is a noticeable jump from my previous amp. Also note the optical connectors are on mini jack ones but it does come with adapters to standard TOS link. The only downsides are no screen (although there are programable buttons on it) and while the app is excellent the Alexa control advertised is poor / unusable.
