Get more from your high-performance audio system

The NODE 2i brings your current audio gear into the Bluesound wireless network (amplifier and speakers not included).

The NODE 2i turns your existing audio system into a network-capable Bluesound player. Connect its analog or digital outputs to your existing receiver or amplifier to make it part of your multi-room Bluesound wireless system. Stream high-resolution music stored on your home network, internet radio stations, or music service. Bluesound’s whole-house wireless music system is designed to complement audiophile-grade gear, so you can make the most of your digital music.

Compatible with AirPlay 2*

Built-in Apple AirPlay 2 technology lets you stream audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through your Bluesound system. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies.

And if you subscribe to Apple Music®, you can do even more. Use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV 4K to control Apple Music with voice commands. Tell it what selection or playlist to play — and which Bluesound speakers or components you want it to play through.

*Firmware update required.

High-quality two-way Bluetooth streaming

The NODE 2i features aptX® HD Bluetooth streaming for higher-fidelity sound with compatible Bluetooth devices. The system is backward-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth, too. You can even share that Bluetooth source with other Bluesound music players around your house that are connected to your network. And for convenient late-night listening, you can also stream wirelessly from the NODE 2i to a paired set of wireless headphones.

A universe of music options

Bluesound is compatible with virtually all digital music formats — including high-resolution files up to 24-bit/192kHz. Access the music stored on your computer or a networked hard drive. Stream from internet radio stations and online services like Spotify®, Deezer, and TIDAL (including their high-res MQA service tier). You can also enjoy downloads from high-res music sites such as HDtracks.

A USB input conveniently lets you play files “locally” from a flash drive or hard drive — ideal when friends come over with their own music.

Control it all with an app

The BlueOS controller app is a free download for both Apple® and Android™ devices. Select songs from your smartphone or tablet. The app displays all of your music services, internet radio stations, and digital music libraries stored on your computer or server. Play music in one room, all rooms, or different tracks in different spaces around your home through BluOS-compatible speakers and players.
