Expert review by : Steve May (

Bluesound Node 2


Bluesound Node 2 review: this audiophile High-Res Audio network music streamer and multiroom wireless component comes affectionately recommended

Compact design ; Bluesound wireless multiroom integration ; Excellent audio quality ; Wide high-res audio file support

No uPnP support ; No remote supplied

The Node 2 is an excellent standalone hi-res audio music streamer – and works just as well in a multiroom setup.

Bluesound Node 2 review


Despite an upgrade, this old favourite now lags a little behind its cheaper rivals.

Even-handed tonal balance ; Good range of connections ; Easy to use ; Well designed app

Increased price ; Lacking ultimate detail ; Not dynamic enough ; Could be more spacious ; Loose sense of rhythm

Time has taken its toll on this player, which has been overhauled by some more affordable rivals
