Can't believe how good it is, considering price and size

I recently dusted off my dads JBL L100 Century speakers that he bought in the 70s and gave them a full cosmetic overhaul. Unfortunately he passed away before I could show them to him so I decided to keep them in his memory and use them in my living room not only for music, but also as a stereo system for my TV. The only thing missing was an amplifier that could drive them. Same as everyone else, I would love a modern, but vintage looking high end amplifier with some VU meters in the front but everything I found was way beyond my budget. Then came this Bluesound Powernode. It helped me bring these vintage speakers to the modern era by allowing me to stream music from my phone with Tidal and Spotify seamlessly over wifi. Not only that, but thanks to the HDMI connection, I can now watch movies and tv shows, play games on my XBOX through these amazing speakers. I have been using it for almost a year and the only negative comment I have is, if I turn off my TV without muting it, I get a static burst right after the TV is turned off. Not sure if this is an issue with my TV or the amp, but it really does not bother me. Made it a habit to always mute the tv before turning off. Thank you Bluesound for making such an affordable, great little product...

Nice compact solution and high WAF

Shipping box looked like it saw better days with air filled pouches popped... But the Powernode was packaged safe in original box and functions and looks like new.
Setup was smooth and was streaming in minutes. Amp has plenty of power to drive towers. Wife liked the compact chassis and simplistic design

Impressed so far

As one who's been in the audio hobby for decades, I've been of the belief that amplifiers have to be back-breaking monsters w/ huge power supplies to sound good. Items like the Powernode are changing my mind. I've had this paired with two high-end monitors- KEF 201s and Paradigm S4s- and I'm pleasantly surprised with how good it sounds. Will it keep up with McIntosh mono blocks? Doubtful. But for the cost, sound and features I recommend trying one.

A One Size Fits Most Hi-Fi Solution!

The Bluesound POWERNODE is the streaming amplifier box that Bluesound has been striving to make for years. It has the features, aesthetics, build quality, processing power, amplification power and flexibility to make it the hub of your Hi-Fi system for (hopefully) many years. 80 watts of Class D amplification can drive over 90% of contemporary speakers, so you should take your time to select a great pair. The amplifier is pretty much the same as those used in NAD products, so you get full, separated, neutral amplification that has just a little extra bass to keep things very premium sounding. Most people are happy with the amplification out of NAD products (I am). And being Class D, it is small, distortion free and it keeps its cool. What drives it is the Bluesound app (Bluesound OS) which is fast and reliable. You can have a streaming service or Internet radio station play in just 2 seconds after selection. That's pretty snappy. And name a streaming service, it has it. Deezer Hi-Fi, Spotify, Tidal (MQA), Apple, YouTube, Amazon, Qobuz. And it is Roon certified. This is the Hi-Fi amplifier I have dreamed of for years (decades?). This is the product to seriously consider. Once I heard it, I got over the lack of a physical volume **** immediately.
