Now featuring HDMI (ARC) the Bluesound Powernode 2i (with HDMI) makes the best even better.
Now with HDMI ARC
This multi-award-winner is made even better with the latest addition of an HDMI socket. Now you can connect your TV, UHD Blu-ray player or TV streamer, using this high quality and ubiquitous connection. The ARC (Audio Return Channel) function lets you take the sound from a compatible TV using a higher quality connection than optical digital.
Version Gen 2i brings a whole raft of streaming improvements. Apple AirPlay 2 is now supported, as is aptX HD Bluetooth. The HD version of aptX Bluetooth streaming supports 24-bit audio, making this the best quality Bluetooth connection to date. Another bonus is the adoption of dual-band wi-fi. The new wi-fi chip lets you take advantage of the less noisy 5 GHz band. This results in faster connection times and fewer interruptions from other network traffic.
Two-way Bluetooth for compatibly with Bluetooth headphones
Another bonus with this Gen 2i version is two-way Bluetooth. This not only lets you connect up Bluetooth music sources put also outputs to Bluetooth accessories, primarily Bluetooth headphones in this case.
Featuring two 3.5mm optical and analogue inputs, the POWERNODE 2i is more accommodating than before. With the extra input you can now connect up your TV and another source, such as a games console or Blu-ray player.
