  • Summary: i got the node 3 weeks ago and i am happy with the purchase. i have a vault that i got 6 months ago which matches with the node. you need a strong wireless signal for this to work flawlessly. i uses wireless right now but i am thinking of hard wiring it later. overall i am very happy.
  • Pros: bottom line, fantastic sound.
  • Cons: you need a good wifi signal

Very Happy

  • Summary: Very happy with my purchase of the Bluesound Node. My previous wireless solution was limited to 16/44.1 playback - downsampling all of my hires music. It also did not support gapless playback.
  • Pros: Sound quality, gapless playback, easy setup and network connection.
  • Cons: I would have preferred a component that looked like an audio component on my audio rack... My system is all tubes - preamp and power amp - only the DAC is solid state, so the "modern" styling is a bit of a contrast!! Control app needs further development(though it is quite functional and I have n...

The answer to unlocking your HiRes Library

Tripper, Crutchfield
2 September 2014
  • Summary: I already have a 14 zone Sonos system, but as much as I love it, Sonos does not allow access to audio files in resolutions higher than CD Quality. I was accessing my 96/24 files by using my Oppo BDP 105, however, I found the access via the folder system awkward, and I wanted a "Sonos like" solution...
  • Pros: Access to 96/24 Audio Files Easy Setup Easy to learn interface
  • Cons: No digital Coax output; Toslink and analog RCA only

The Control app needs improvement

Tom, Crutchfield
2 September 2014
  • Summary: I am using the Node along with my Oppo 105D using the optical output. I found that the Oppo does not accept files through the digital inputs at more that 96k. So, I connect the Node directly to my Pre-amp, a Halcro DM110.
  • Pros: - Good Quality Sound - Can play all high resolution files
  • Cons: - Control app needs some improvement - No coaxial output
