Bluesound Powernode 2i V2
A superb little streamer/amplifier! Great performance at a reasonable price with a brilliant user-interface.
The latest iteration of the class-leading hi-res streaming amplifier, the POWERNODE 2i now includes an HDMI ARC input – yet another way to connect your audio content to a true Hi-Fi system. HDMI has become an increasingly popular method of connecting audio components, because of its convenience, availability, and ability to deliver many types of audio formats.
By adding another input, the POWERNODE 2i is ready to become the audio hub for the modern living space. Features such as IR remote learning and auto-sense input selection help to position the POWERNODE 2i as the ultimate two-channel receiver, able to do so much without taking up too much space. Connect just about any source – and up to three external components at once – for high quality playback. Just add speakers!
The POWERNODE 2i now features Dolby Digital support. Dolby-encoded content (up to 5.1) being played through the digital outputs of your TV can be decoded by the POWERNODE 2i via the Optical or HDMI ARC inputs and will be down mixed to stereo. The BluOS App will let you know if a Dolby signal is playing.
The amp reinvented. The POWERNODE 2i V2 is the streaming amplifier that merges several traditional components into one and unlocks a world of high-fidelity streaming. Effortlessly driving your choice of speakers with the same zero-distortion audio signature Bluesound has become known for, the POWERNODE 2i V2 takes your favourite tracks to new levels. Permission to turn it up, granted.
