No Easier Way to Add Audiophile-Quality High-Res Streaming to Your System: Roon-Ready Bluesound Node 2i Network Music Player Has Onboard TIDAL, Qobuz, AirPlay 2, and aptX HD

There's no simpler way to add high-resolution streaming – and TIDAL, Qobuz, MQA, Internet radio, and practically countless music options – to your existing system than the Roon-ready Bluesound Node 2i network music player. It also accesses your own libraries held on computers, phones, and external drives without any need to turn on a computer. Equipped with a 32-bit/192kHz DAC, dual-band Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay 2, and even the ability to stream to wireless headphones, The Absolute Sound Editors' Choice Award-winning and Stereophile Class B Recommended Node 2i comes ready to play. And you can even control it all with voice commands using Amazon Alexa or Siri. Too cool!

"So I am pretty confident saying you would be hard-pressed to find a package that dovetails convenience, selection of music, trouble-free streaming, build-quality, flexibility, and true high-end performance as impressively as the Node 2i."
– Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound

"[TAS writer Paul Seydor] cannot think of another component that accesses so much music at such high quality at such a pittance of a price."
The Absolute Sound, 2020 Product of the Year Award

"As far as sub-£500 wireless streamers go – whether incorporated into a Bluesound multi-room system or not...this is simply the best sounding product of its type."
What Hi-Fi?, Best Music Streamer under £500

"This hi-res streamer looks unremarkable but offers a superb sonic performance, ease of use and plenty of flexibility."
– Ed Selley, Home Cinema Choice, Best Buy Award
