Why the Node 2i has won my favor
« on: 24 Sep 2020, 03:56 am »
One simple fact about the Node 2i streamer....  It doesn't rely on a networked computer to stream the audio data.  Why is this so important?  Well, let's say you have a computer set up as an audio server.  I had a situation like this with Logitech Media Server and the Squeezebox Touch.  Let's also say there's a printer on another network that you use occasionally.  Now, every time you use the printer from that computer, you lose your audio stream.

Anyone have a similar situation?

Node 2i is wireless, works well, has a decent built-in DAC, and easy to use.  Downside is the Blue OS software is not great.
