Bluesound Music Players
Bluesound players are designed and engineered by audiophiles. They have been tested and perfected at one of North America's most advanced sound labs by some of the same engineers and musicians who started the original hi-fi revolution in the 1970s, including PSB's Paul Barton.
Add other Bluesound components for more functionality. "The entire system is designed for easy setup with no computer required," reports Grant Clauser at ElectronicHouse.com. "Playlists can be created on the fly. Each component can be controlled individually, or grouped, so users can play different songs in each room or the same music all over the house."
All Bluesound music players are OSX, XP, Vista, 2000 and Windows 7/8 compatible. They are purpose-built to stream full res 24-bit/192 kHz studio master recordings. Bluesound plays many standard audio formats, including FLAC, AAC, ALAC, WAV, AIFF, WMA, OGG, and MP3.
"The Node is for users who want to play their music through their own speakers and amplifier. It can play any local network music plus a selection of streaming services from the internet. It connects to your sound system via line level (red and white stereo output) or a digital optical output."
"The entire system is designed for easy setup with no computer required. Users operate it with a smartphone or tablet BlueOS app. Music from the Vault includes cover art to make it easy to find the album you're looking for. Playlists can be created on the fly. Each component can be controlled individually, or grouped, so users can play different songs in each room or the same music all over the house."
"I was able to listen to all the Bluesound components in a hotel suite in New York this week. The performance was pretty impressive on all of them, but what stood out the most was the Duo combined with a Power Node. Even in a room with 20-foot ceilings and one floor-to-ceiling window, the sound was powerful, detailed and offered a three-dimensional soundstage."

The Node was recommended by an Audio Advisor Rep after I described my goal to him, which was to simply stream audio with good sound quality. I have the Node connected to my AV receiver, and the sound is great! I listen to Tunein stations on their IOS app, and I use Bluetooth to listen to all other streaming, mostly to Sirius/XM. I use the toslink connection, but the analog also sounds good. My demands are admittedly low, so Im sure that audiophiles will be satisfied.
