”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.

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.

Fantastic speaker savings when bought with this amplifier, call your local store or our telesales team, now!
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, great sound at price point The Bluesound Powernode is a a great device and is only let down by the fact that for some reason it (despite advertising and on box info) will not connect to Apple Music via AirPlay. Hope Bluesound can get this sorted

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice hardware, let down by abysmal software. Excellent hardware, which produces a lovely sound going in to my Monitor Audio Silver 100’s. But severely unimpressed with BluOS.Four attempts to setup wirelessly and wired all failed, BlueSound, replying after a month, made the pathetic excuse that the PowerNode should be nearer to the router or that my files are corrupt. yet in the same location I have a SonosArc, a Samsung TV, a Mac Mini, a Roku stick and two iPad Pro’s all of which connect flawless to my network. So I must conclude that BluOS 4 is a load of rubbish. Had I known this, I would likely have saved myself half the cost and bought the Wiim Amp instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little black beauty! This truly is a little box of wonderful delights that excels in everything it does. I adore the unassuming design combined with its astonishing simplicity and ease of use. The BluOS app combines with both Spotify and the Powernode for seamless operation and easy access to all your favorite music and radio stations. For sound, I'm currently running my Bluesound through my Q Acoustic 3020's.Whilst these are arguably considered entry level speakers they've never sounded so so good. That said, I'm now keener than ever to upgrade to the new QA 5020's. All in all I'm delighted with my purchase and would unreservedly recommend. Thank you Bluesound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wifi-enabled amplifier I bought this to power my old B&W P4s, to play music and serve as the rear speakers on our home cinema. It’s excellent, great sound quality and plenty of drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power excellent sound Was looking at purchasing the evo150 and went for the bluesound powernode instead. Couldn’t be more happy, it sounds brilliant with my new ae309 floor standers. Big thanks to Tom for great advise and a good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aig sound & the whole family can use it with ease! I've now had the POWERNODE for several months and it's an amazing piece of kit. I upgraded from a Denon RCD N11 as it was constantly going into protection mode after buying my new floorstander speakers. No such problem with POWERNODE as the 8o watts per channel make all the difference. I'm using Q Acoustic 3050i speakers which have powerful bass drivers and the POWERNODE has no problem driving them. The sound stage is big and effortless. It's especially good with modern bass heavy, synth-y type music like Gorillaz, Caroline Polachek. Dua Lipa, SG Lewis, Wet Leg etc. Not sure if that's due to the amp, the speakers or both? The Bluos operating system is seamless and so easy and intuitive to use. I'm using the unit via wi-fi and the signal is robust and resilience. I've scarcely had any outages or problems with streaming high res music from Tidal. All in all, I've now got an audiophile hi-fi listening experience for a very reasonable price. For anything better you would have to pay over double the price and even then you wouldn't get double the improvement!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound with no wires - just bluetooth Extremely happy with the sound ( through Dali floor mounted speakers) and connectivety via smartphone but perhaps too reliant on phone so I would like to see a manual override option on the hardware too
