Product Description

Our new award-winning HybridDigital™ amplifier design has greatly increased dynamic power and high current delivery, resulting in the ability to play louder than ever before, with the same zero-distortion precision audio signature we've become known for. Permission to turn it up, granted.

High quality binding posts allow the use of high-end speaker cables, and ensure even current flow to even the most demanding, premium loudspeakers.

Electronic crossover and subwoofer output remain standard features, as does our commitment to premium 2.1 stereo sound. The POWERNODE 2 leads the way to the future of HiFi.

The POWERNODE 2, like all Bluesound Players, is controlled from your smartphone or tablet using the free BIuOS™ App. The App brings all your music sources together for complete control whether they are in the cloud, on your computer or phone, or from almost any other source via the various digital and analog inputs. Stream from Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, or connect to your wired LAN.

  • “Lenbrook, Bluesound’s parent company, also owns the respected audio brands NAD and PSB. From NAD comes the HybridDigital™ amplifier technology inside the PowerNode 2. It trickles down from NAD’s critically acclaimed M22 power amp.
    I auditioned the PowerNode 2 with PSB Image T6 tower speakers. The PowerNode 2 had no problem driving the big speakers. In my home theater system, the towers perform admirably. But with the PowerNode 2, music sounds much better. Time and time again, I found myself repeating familiar cuts because I was amazed at the new level of detail I was hearing. The Bottle Rockets album 24 Hours a Day begins with an energetic rock tune called “Kit Kat Clock.” I’ve listened to this track dozens of times through the home theater system. With the PowerNode 2 driving my speakers, the dense arrangement opened up like a fine wine. Individual parts popped like crazy. All traces of mud disappeared. I savored the distinct tones and deft interplay of two electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, and two singers. The clarity of the high harmony vocal was simply stunning… I borrowed the PowerNode 2 and Pulse Mini for this review, and I’ll be sad to see them go. They offer so much more than even the best Bluetooth speakers. For me, there’s no contest.”

    “The amp in the PowerNode 2 is incredibly capable, easily driving a pair of Monitor Audio CP-WT380IDC with 8-inch drivers. The PowerNode 2 produced tangible bass from a speaker that I have found to be fairly demanding and amp hungry, easily driving them to levels loud enough to satisfy any listener.” - John Sciacca

    “… it can now deliver 60W per channel into 8 Ohms – up a full 10W on last year’s model… It picks up where the Node 2 left off, showing a similar level of subtlety and agility, but with some added bite, which we find just slightly lacking from the streamer… It’s a balanced presentation and the clarity is second to none. Whether we’re listening to Beethoven or Beyonce, the Powernode 2 can adapt its character to suit… What’s really nice here though, is how the Powernode 2 handles dynamics. It’s capable of conveying real differences between the softer and more powerful sections of the music, moving between the two with a level of fluidity and confidence that makes it such an insightful listen… For £700, it’s one of our favourite parts of the system, delivering a spacious and exciting presentation that is eager to please… We’re big fans of the new Bluesound range. It sounds as good as ever, with some well-judged improvements and great new additions making it a stronger proposition than ever. Price will be a consideration – it’s a little more costly than much of the competition – but if you’re looking for a multiroom system that’s flexible, will support a high-resolution library and sounds excellent, it’s a consideration worth making.”
