great sound quality

steve, Crutchfield
27 January 2014
  • Summary: Great sound quality, this is a fantastic device. I bought it to replace the Logitech Squeezebox touch as that is being phased out of my system. I have it hooked up with a wired connection and use the digital toslink output into my Bel Canto DAC3 DAC. Sound is world class, I am very happy with my purchase. It plays high resolution files flawlessly and I control it with my Android Tablet as well as my Android phone. I love it!
  • Pros: sound quality, cool design
  • Cons: not too many apps for music services yet, although they are working on adding more.

Great System

Tom, Crutchfield
27 September 2013
  • Summary: As I indicated in my Powernode review, the Bluesound system (along with my NAD components M51, M52, M50) brings fantastic sound quality to a whole house streaming environment. The Nodes are extremely easy to install, and the apps are very good and getting better all the time with frequent updates. I have one Powernode for the patio, and two Nodes for basement and bedroom presently, and likely to get one more in the near future.
  • Pros: Great quality, flexibility, network reliability, and seamless integration with the NAD digital M-series
  • Cons: wish there was a coax output on the nodes -- otherwise, no cons whatsoever

Audiophile quality sound - beyond CD

Brian, Crutchfield
27 April 2013
  • Summary: I purchased a BlueSound node as a Sonos owner. My thought was to compare the two head to head and decide which to roll out to the rest of the house. The 24-bit / 96 khz FLAC files sound noticeably better than CD (16-bit / 46 Khz) I've ever heard from a system I owned. As for the journey to the maximum 24-bit / 192 khz FLAC. Well, I learned you need to have very high quality TOSlink cables for your receiver to be able to receive that kind of resolution.
  • Pros: Better sound quality than Sonos using hi res audio files. What's more important to you in an audio appliance? Ease of use? Or the sound? I can learn to get around in the clunky interface so that I can enjoy the higher quality sound. The interface is easier to improve. With Sonos - the sound quality can't get any better than it is.
  • Cons: SONOS has the more intuitive android/apple interface and better music service offerings (Spotify, Pandora and others). Sure you can stream Spotify and Pandora over bluetooth to a $15 bluetooth adapter in the BlueSound. But I'd rather have the services built into the blue sound interface.

  • Summary: Väldigt trevlig musikstreamer med bra prisnivå. Inbyggt Wimp Hifi stöd och mycket bra ljud även från flac-filer via nätverket (avsevärt bättre ljud än t.ex. Sonos). Bra ersättare för en Squeezebox (kräver dessutom ingen skakig extern serverkoppling). Nätverkskopplingen har hittills varit mycket stabil. Styrs med app på smartphone eller surfplatta som åtminstone i Android känns seg, saknar landscape mode och överlag är lite ologiskt uppbyggd.

  • Summary: Har länge eftersökt en streamingenhet med tillgång till spotify eller wimp. Bluesound är enkel att komma igång med och ger förträffligt digitalt ljud ifrån sig. Digitala ljudkvaliteten jämfört med närmaste konkurrenten sonos är påtaglig.

Bluesound Node N100 White

Wim, wifimedia.eu
23 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Na vier maanden heb ik denk ik een behoorlijk goed beeld van de Bluesound Node. In mei kocht ik dit glimmende blokje als vervanging van de Squeezebox Classic. De Media Server was niet het sterkste onderdeel van de Squeezebox. Eigenlijk was ik eerst thuisgekomen met de Soundbar van Sonos (fantastisch) en een Sonos Connect (te vlak geluid). Van Wifmedia mocht ik hem zonder problemen omruilen (goede service).
