I am perplexed by the fact there has not been more talk about Bluesound. Mostly from a budget minded perspective or from audiophiles who are not Bill Gates.
For $500 one can get the Node 2 and enjoy some terrific features. Ability to stream digital files wirelessly or wired to your audio system from your HDD. A music streaming device which can play Pandora, Spotify, Tidal or Roon. MQA file unfolding and playback (hi-rez) music. The ability to use one's Iphone or Ipad/Android phone or tablet as a control device for your digital music. And more really great customer support plus updates from Bluesound. Did I mention it has a GREAT dac?
