BLUESOUND POWERNODE 2I GETS HDMI UPGRADE
Bluesound's Powernode 2i was already a versatile device, offering wireless multi-room audio streaming and the ability to power an existing pair of speakers directly.
The newly released PowerNode 2i merges several traditional components into one compact box, along with the addition of a single HDMI (ARC and eARC) input.
The new feature means you can now enjoy your TV's sound through your PowerNode 2i connected speakers. Not only that, but it also means you can stream your TV's audio throughout your home via other BluOS products. Your favourite sports of next weekend's AFL Grand Final streamed into the backyard perhaps?
The PowerNode 2i (HDMI) features advanced dual-band WiFi, along with aptX Bluetooth connectivity. From streaming studio quality (MQA) music tracks to your headphones and speakers, and a choice of inputs including analog, optical and now HDMI ARC, you're sure to find the right connection.
It also supports Apple Airplay 2, along with integration with TIDAL, Deezer, Qobuz and Spotify, along with an almost limitless number of internet-based radio stations.
Combine this with the 60 watts per channel stereo amplifier, add speakers, and you have one of the most versatile integrated amplifiers on the market.
The updated Bluesound PowerNode 2i (HDMI) is available now and sells in Australia for $1,549 RRP.
