Bluesound NODE Reviews

Easy to use

By Merlin

The Bluesound Node is far more complicated than I needed, and I love how it just disappears into the back ground. Its size makes it easy to fit into the system I have. I had to set the audio delay to zero to get the voice and lips to even appear to match tho, and on some cable programs it still doesn't sync. So easy to use after setup.

Great product

Digital source sounds so much better. Easy set up and software is user friendly.

Sleek and intuitive

The Node allows me to use Spotify and Tidal Connect, which makes streaming HiFi audio very easy. I've also used the Bluetooth feature, which sounds decent but using the Connect features definitely produces the best sound.

Beautiful Product.... Excellent

I was determined to find a network audio player that had a display screen on the front panel, similar to my previous Pioneer N-50. But all the rave reviews of the Node swayed me. I'm really thrilled with this player. The phone app is really the way to go. It offers way more utility and convenience than any built-in screen could. There are other players out there at this price point that use a phone app for control, but the BlueOS app is the only one that people actually like. The Node 2021 also now has a decent DAC, so that concern with its predecessors seems to be taken care of. I had no trouble pairing the unit with my Synology NAS device, and the user interface for navigating that is great. Internet radio and other streaming services are equally easy to access. On top of all that, it's kind of a cool looking unit, with solid build quality. I use mine as a source with the output volume fixed, but it can also be used as a preamp with volume and tone controls accessible in the app. I'm really happy with the sound quality and usability of this network player.
