    Setting a Standard for Audio Performance

    To celebrate its ten-year milestone, Bluesound is pleased to introduce the NODE X. Since its inception, the Bluesound NODE has become synonymous with hi-res streaming, proving generation by generation that audio quality, convenience, and affordability can live together in one compact unit.

    The limited-time, 10th Anniversary Edition NODE X re-imagines some of the best parts of the NODE's product design, improving them even further, and sets a new standard for audio performance and usability in the category. Whether it is added to an existing audio system, amplifier, AVR or a pair of active loudspeakers, the NODE X is here to take 'just add streaming' into the next generation of audiophiles.

    The Latest Technology and Audio Improvements

    The NODE X represents technology and audio improvements that advance the previous generation NODE design. An upgraded high performance audiophile-grade ESS Sabre DAC takes audio playback to the next tier, while a high-end headphone amp featuring THX AAA™ technology elevates the headphone listening experience and widens the product use-case even further. To tie it all together, the powerful componentry is encapsulated in a stunning silver finish casing.

    Bluesound's mission is to introduce a wireless generation of music lovers to true high performance fidelity. The NODE X represents the latest benchmark of this unstoppable pursuit – the perfect blend of audio quality, cutting-edge design, and great value for every music lover.

    'Step-Up' Performance

    An upgraded audiophile ESS 9028Q2M Sabre DAC design outputs amazing musicality, near-zero levels of clock jitter, ultra-low noise and distortion, and a wide dynamic range. A truly high-end headphone amp with a full-sized 1⁄4” headphone jack uses a THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAA™ with patented feed-forward error correction to deliver infinitesimally low levels of noise, distortion and power consumption for a realistic, fatigue-free listening experience. This positions the NODE X not only as the ultimate streaming source for a HiFi system, but also a hi-res streamer for no-compromise headphone listening.

    Intuitive Touch Controls

    Unparalleled elegance shines through in the all-glass, capacitive touch LED control panel that graces the top of the NODE X with an intuitive touchpoint for quick access controls like play, pause, track skipping, and volume. One-touch presets are available on the product itself, or by using the included Bluesound RC1 remote.

    Advanced controls, including tone controls, subwoofer crossover optimization, and listening modes are available in the BluOS Controller app. The NODE X can also be integrated into a smart home with full-feature drivers for Lutron, Elan, RTI, Crestron, and other popular home control systems.

    Ultimate Hifi Streamer

    In addition to a high-performance internal DAC, the NODE X continues to support external DACs via an assortment of digital outputs. Optical, Coaxial or USB Audio 2.0 output turns the NODE X into a simple high-quality streamer, sending music from hi-res services to your favorite outboard equipment. Powerful software features like tone controls and listening modes, allow you to customize your listening preferences with detail.

    Multi-Room Experience

    Bit-perfect music listening can happen away from your HiFi system with the NODE X as your multi-room streamer. The NODE X is supported by the BluOS platform, the only platform in the world that can support up to 64 players, all streaming up to 24-bit, hi-res audio. With a growing stable of brands and devices being added to the BluOS platform, the NODE X opens up a world of hi-res listening options throughout your home that no other player can.

    The Ins and Outs

    Like a jack of all trades, the NODE X supports a broad spectrum of digital and analog inputs and outputs. WiFi, Ethernet, Apple AirPlay 2, aptX HD Bluetooth, 3.5mm aux-in, HDMI eARC or USB Type A connectors let you input audio from streaming services, TV and gaming consoles, or a personal music library.
