A clever and modern update of the integrated amplifier, Bluesound's second-generation PowerNode 2 digital music player/amplifier pairs with and drives practically any loudspeakers to elevate high-resolution streaming to previously unthinkable heights. Conservatively rated at 60WPc and equipped with Bluetooth aptX and MQA playback ability, PowerNode 2 puts a priority on wireless high-end sound.
