WIFI YOUR HIFI

Hundreds of internet radio stations, premium music services like Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer, Spotify and dozens of other music streaming services, are integrated with the NODE X’s operating system, making music discovery seamless and exciting.

 

FORM MEETS FUNCTION

Don't let the size and minimalist looks of the NODE X fool you into diminishing its capabilities. Inside, the NODE X features a premium ESS Sabre DAC design that supports 24-bit/192 kHz audio processing, along with a high-end headphone amplifier driven by THX AAA™ technology and a full-sized ¼” (6.35mm) headphone jack for the ultimate no-compromise, wired headphone listening experience. 

 

FULLY EQUIPPED

Bring music into your NODE X using HDMI eARC, Wi-Fi or Ethernet, Apple AirPlay 2, aptX™ HD Bluetooth, or USB, to hear audio content from streaming services, TV, and your own music library. Listen to your music through your HiFi system or through wired or wireless headphones, by connecting to the RCA, TOSLINK optical, aptX™ HD Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, Apple devices, or other Bluesound or BluOS players.

Bit-perfect music listening can happen away from your HiFi system with the NODE X as your multi-room hub.
