Network Amplifier WiFi Bluetooth 5.0 2x40W 8Ω 24bit 192kHz White
With the Powernode Edge, Bluesound unveils a network amplifier capable of developing a power of 2x40W under 8Ω. It will allow you to easily enjoy your music, including wireless, WiFi or Bluetooth. It thus becomes possible to broadcast your music remotely from your local network, a computer or a smartphone with ease. It's also the possibility to access your favorite streaming services and web radios but also to broadcast thanks to the protocols Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect or AirPlay 2. Extremely versatile, the Powernode Edge even provides an HDMI eARC connector to connect the amplifier to a TV to broadcast sound in stereo or 4.1.
The Bluesound Powernode Edge connects easily to the local network and the Internet via its Gigabit RJ45 Ethernet port or wirelessly via the built-in dual-band WiFi connectivity. The amplifier is thus able to access music stored on devices on your network such as a computer or NAS. In addition, it supports the vast majority of current audio file formats and is capable of playing high-resolution streams up to PCM 24bit 192kHz as well as decoding MQA files notably broadcast via the Tidal platform.
Powerful, the Powernode Edge embeds a Quad-Core ARM Cortex-A53 1.8GHz processor, allowing it to guarantee a smooth use and reading.
In addition to accessing files stored on your network, the Bluesound amplifier will allow you to access major streaming and web radio services via its BluOS mobile application.
To allow you to easily stream your music directly from a smartphone or tablet, the Powernode Edge is equipped with a Bluetooth 5.0 receiver. This one is compatible with the aptX HD transmission codec, ensuring a high quality sound reproduction in Bluetooth. It is also bidirectional and is therefore also capable of transmitting your audio content to a headphone or a Bluetooth speaker.
In order to offer an intuitive use, Bluesound proposes a dedicated control application, BluOS, available for free on iOS and Android devices. It allows you to take control of playback, manage your playlists and access streaming and web radio services. It also makes it possible to manage a multi-room environment, to broadcast your music throughout your home while controlling the whole thing from your application.
Thanks to its DirectDigital™ amplifier delivering 2x40W power under 8Ω and ensuring a 91dB SNR and very low distortion, the Powernode Edge reproduces your music or movie audio tracks with precision, clarity and dynamics. It is also capable of decoding the Dolby Digital format, allowing it to be used in a wireless home theater installation.
Its compact form factor allows it to fit easily into any space. It can be placed on a desk or in a TV or HiFi cabinet. The Powernode Edge can even be wall-mounted using the included multi-orientation wall bracket.
While the Bluesound Powernode Edge can be controlled from the BluOS mobile app, it can also be controlled from its elegant front panel touch interface. This provides backlit controls for controlling your music playback and accessing your favorites.
To take it a step further, the amplifier can even be controlled by voice, using smart assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri. In addition, it can be integrated into a home automation system through popular systems such as Lutron, Crestron, RTI or Elan.
