Bluesound, the original line of hi-res wireless multi-room audio players, carries award-winning, custom install-friendly streaming solutions supported by the easy-to-use BluOS™ platform which allows for whole-home audio distribution. The new POWERNODE EDGE is a mini-sized, all-in-one zone amplifier that can turn a pair of passive speakers into a comprehensive audio system, a perfect solution for providing hard-to-reach areas of any home with hi-res audio.
Just Add Speakers
Taking the ‘just add speakers’ solution further since the launch of their POWERNODE, the POWERNODE EDGE proves that performance – without ever sacrificing audio quality is still possible with a compact and affordable product. This all-in-one unit combines streaming sources, app control and premium amplification in a ‘mini’ size player. On top of connecting speakers, you can connect audio sources like a TV or turntable.
A closed-loop DirectDigital™ amplification platform forms the foundation for hi-fi performance, resulting in a clean, distortion-free signal that cuts out the bad noises and focuses on the good ones. With 40W per channel of clean, easy-going, understated power, the POWERNODE EDGE is a perfect support for a wide range of audio experiences.
The POWERNODE EDGE offers integrators a premium, powered audio zone in one easy to install box comparable in size to a hardcover book. Every aspect of the compact amplifier has been designed with integration in mind: the stackable 1U height, the half-rack width, heat management and venting, easy-to-use speaker terminals, an HDMI input, front panel controls, and a wall mount bracket included. All of this is layered on BluOS™, Bluesound’s premium multi-room audio platform that includes seamless smart home integration with the world’s leading control systems.
An Easy Add-On
The size, shape features and connectivity options of the POWERNODE EDGE make it an easy add to any audio system – centralized or localized – bringing hi-res audio to every room and space in the home. Whether used as a main room music and entertainment system, or taking a backseat in a passive listening area, the POWERNODE EDGE is an ideal solution to partner with a pair of in-room or architectural loudspeakers.
Let BluOS™ Do the Work
The POWERNODE EDGE provides incredible flexibility for any setup thanks to BluOS™ –
the world’s leading hi-res multi-room system. It connects you to all the music ever recorded,
and lets you stream audio all around the house, wirelessly. Add Bluesound speakers to any room in a home and create a multi-room listening experience alongside the POWERNODE EDGE. With convenient HDMI eARC and dual optical/analog inputs on the back, support for DolbyDigital™, and full control using the BluOS™ app, the POWERNODE EDGE makes music, movies, shows, games, and podcasts sound better. Its size and sound mean it will be completely at home powering a TV setup, surround channels in a wireless home theater, desktop workspace, backyard outdoor speakers, or even becoming a teenager’s first real hi-fi.
Of course, Bluesound players can be adjusted hands-free with Amazon Alexa Skills, Apple Siri or Actions on Google too, in the case that voice control works best for your client. And just like
the other Bluesound players, the POWERNODE EDGE features IR remote control learning,
which means that you can program any infrared remote control (like a TV remote) to control functions, inputs, and presets.
For nearly 10 years, Bluesound has told a story of simplicity, convenience, and performance, all while making hi-res listening accessible and easy, bringing more music lovers into the world of modern HiFi. This ‘just add speakers’ solution proves that a HiFi amplifier for the streaming age makes for an easy home upgrade that adds heart and soul to any space.
