SAVE on the nova500 when you add BLUESOUND'S NODE WIRELESS MUSIC STREAMER!*
Add high-resolution Wi-Fi streaming to your nova with Bluesound’s NODE and BluOS. Bluesound's stand-alone NODE reliably streams high-resolution audio from your most-requested music services and outputs it digitally to the nova500’s built-in DAC.
We may ship the nova in advance of the NODE unless you instruct us otherwise, due to current limited availability of the NODE.
*NODE available for US sale only.
Connect the NODE easily to your nova500 to unlock and discover a universe of audio streaming. With more than enough analog and digital input/output options to please the most ardent audiophile, the NODE connects you to all the music ever recorded. Online streaming services, internet radio and your own digital music library on a computer, smartphone or external drive - the NODE brings infinite playback choices into your very own high fidelity domain.
The NODE has AirPlay 2 built-in for easy integration into the Apple ecosystem. Premium high-res music services like TIDAL, Qobuz and Amazon HD – as well as virtually all other popular music services and internet radio stations - are already built-in. Access your downloads, your iTunes library and content from any other NAS drive, all without turning on a computer.
The NODE has enhanced dual band Wi-Fi, providing best-in-class performance even in crowded airspace. Bluetooth features state-of-the-art aptX HD, supporting 24 bit streaming directly from your phone or tablet, and the ability to transmit studio-quality music to Bluetooth headphones and speakers.
MQA and HDMI eARC. High-end DAC technology built into every Bluesound NODE can decode and stream MQA files. The NODE also features an HDMI eARC input on the back panel, making it as comfortable in a two-channel TV system or gaming console as it is in an audiophile’s dedicated listening room.
