  • "Best 24-bit Wireless Sound System... It fairly romps to the winning line because its horde of rivals lack the sonic ace Bluesound plays."

    "The line level output from the PowerNode was super clean and produced some of the most musical sounds I've heard on the Audio Engine speakers" - Mark Abell

    Source/Read full review: Big Picture Big Sound, December 2014

    "For those with a NAS full of high-res music (or a plan to get one) and a penchant for serious audio quality, Bluesound’s system is worth every single penny."

    Source/Read full review: Stuff, November 2014, Bluesound multi-room music system review


    "Bluesound is one of the most musical multi-room systems we have heard. Its high-resolution capability is its strength, of course, but just as importantly it’s easy to set up and use. Multi-room audio has never sounded so good."

    "The sound of the speaker/sub system, with the Powernode delivering the muscle proved to be an excellent combination. The sound was clear, with plenty of powerful bass, but not enough to overpower the dynamics of the two speakers."

    Source/Read full review: Electronic House Daily, April 2014, Hands On: Bluesound Wireless Audiophile Music System 


    The Powernode and Duo are a no brainer combo for someone looking to add a complete networked hi-fi system wherever they see fit... Add the ability to stream music to the Powernode via Bluetooth, and you've opened up your world of hi-fi to the rest of the world. Very nice indeed."

    Source/Read full review: AudioStream, February 2014, Bluesound Powernode and Duo 


    "I found it extremely easy to group the Powernode and the Vault together, or to ungroup them when I wanted. Easier, even, than it is with Sonos. It's easy to control the volume, easy to select the music you want, and easy to mate a phone or tablet through Bluetooth. Start the Bluetooth source and whatever the Bluesound device was streaming cuts off and plays the Bluetooth. Stop the Bluetooth source, and the Bluesound picks back up with the material it was playing before."
    "Played through my very revealing and neutral Revel Performa3 F206 speakers, the Powernode sounded very clean and smooth." 
    "Based on what I've seen when so many other companies tried their hand at music playback interfaces, I didn't expect much from Bluesound -- I pretty much thought it'd be a high-res audio player with a clumsy interface grafted on. But to my delight, I was wrong. It's a world-class interface, and the easiest way I've yet found to enjoy high-res music."
