Product Description

Details

Bluesound PowerNode 2i is the latest version of the amplified version of the award-winning Node 2. Using new audio technology from their award-winning sister company NAD Electronics, the Bluesound PowerNode 2i is a class-leading streaming amplifier. This model can do whatever the Node 2i streamer can do, but with the addition of an amplifier.

Generation 2I

Bluesound Generation 2i, builds on the success of the originals and continues to strengthen the range with dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Apple AirPlay 2 support, upgraded Bluetooth codecs, improved amplification/acoustics and more while maintaining value for consumers. The Powernode 2i now features two Toslink/3.5mm Optical and Analogue inputs. These provide improved connectivity and flexibility.

HybridDigital Amp

Whereas Node 2i allows you to add a multitude of streaming options to your existing hi-fi system and stream out to other Bluesound speakers, the PowerNode 2i effectively allows you to have a zone on a Bluesound multi-room system with your choice of hi-fi speakers.

Using Bluesound's award-winning, state-of-the-art, audiophile-grade Hybrid-Digital design amplifier and a DAC that brings dynamic power and fast delivery to your high-resolution music collection. The audio signal is without distortion, that Bluesound is known for, the PowerNode 2i allows you to take your favourite music to the next level.

Precision and Clarity

Made for high-resolution music, PowerNode 2i uses industry-leading 1GHz ARM Cortex-9 Multi-core processors. Bluesound's Node 2i is built around a 32-bit architecture with 8x oversampling, which is paired with a new innovative Hybrid Digital Amplifier and a DAC that ensures that your lossless high-resolution music is reproduced accurately and at speed irrespective of the level of volume.

Apple AirPlay 2

Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i is designed to support AirPlay 2 (to be delivered to Gen 2i owners via upcoming software update). With AirPlay 2, you can stream just about any sound from iPhone, iPad, or Mac to your Bluesound system — all in sync. Stream music, books and podcasts from your favourite apps, or watch videos on any Apple device while streaming the audio through to this Gen 2i Player – imagine watching Netflix on an iPad while filling the room with premium sound.

AirPlay 2 also gives users more options for control, including using Siri for voice assistance. Once you add your Gen 2i Player to the Apple Home App on your iPhone or iPad, Apple Music subscribers can use their iOS device or HomePod to say things like: “Hey Siri, play smooth jazz in the Living Room” or “Hey Siri, turn it up in the Kitchen.” By grouping a Gen 2i Player with older Bluesound Players in the BluOS App, existing customers can add AirPlay 2 compatibility to their entire BluOS system.

World of Music

With this unit, you can instantly gain access to millions of online songs. Plus, you can connect to premium high-resolution music services (i.e.TIDAL Masters, Spotify and Qobuz) as well as many other popular music services and internet radio stations are already built-in. You can access your downloads, your iTunes library, or a USB NAS hard drive, without ever turning on a computer. With the possibility to play FLAC and MQA files you can open up your Hi-Fi to the wonderful quality of loss-less high-resolution playback

Multiroom Sound

The PowerNode 2i connects to your home Wi-Fi network quickly and easily. The antenna for the Wi-Fi is an advanced design and coupled with the super fast ARM Cortex A9 Processors, ensures that there are no skips or delays when streaming high-resolution audio around the home. You will have the ability to play your music in synchrony around your home or play different music simultaneously, to other players around your house.

Two-Way aptX Bluetooth

Gen 2i contains Bluesound’s most advanced take on Bluetooth to date - two-way Bluetooth, featuring both Receive and Transmit functionality. Receive capability allows users to wirelessly stream from their device to a Bluesound Player. The Transmit capability lets users now use their Bluesound Gen 2i Player as a source, sending what they are listening to via Bluetooth to a pair of wireless headphones.

While improving the Bluetooth connectivity in Gen 2i, audio quality improvements are also ensured. The advanced Qualcomm CSR8675 chip used in these new products also supports aptX HD Bluetooth wireless audio. aptX HD is an enhanced codec that supports 24-bit audio over Bluetooth and has been engineered to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in lower background noise. With the ability to support up to 24bit/48kHz, streaming from an aptX HD compatible device to a Gen 2i Player provides better-than-CD quality, wirelessly. It all fits into the Bluesound story - modern wireless convenience without sacrificing quality.

Dual-Band Wi-Fi

Bluesound has upgraded the Wi-Fi chipset technology to the latest and greatest Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) dual-band offering. This allows you to take advantage of the less noisy 5 GHz band if needed resulting in faster connection times and fewer interruptions from other network traffic.

BluOS 3.0

Updating to BluOS 3.0, all BluOS users will gain access to new music services like SOUNDMACHINE and Taihe Music Zone (China only) and an easier guided set-up process. Plumbing for BluOS’s first voice integration, Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant will be included, with the corresponding library of skills to launch soon. BluOS 3.0 also contains specific support for Gen 2i features like two-way Bluetooth with aptX HD, and enhanced audio EQ settings including wide mode and deep bass.
