NODE streamer and yet again redefines the category

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, MAY 11, 2023 – Bluesound, the original hi-res multi-room streaming
brand, announces the launch of a special limited-run Anniversary Edition NODE X streamer created in
celebration of its 10th anniversary. The NODE X, in a unique silver finish, takes the brand’s iconic NODE
hi-res player and, yet again, sets a new standard for audio performance and functionality with
upgraded componentry. The NODE X retails at USD $749 / EUR €799 / GBP £699 / CAD $999 and is now

Performance takes a step up in the NODE X with the venerable ESS 9028Q2M Sabre DAC, a favorite of
audiophiles for its amazing musicality, near-zero levels of clock jitter, ultra-low noise, and a wide
dynamic range. A truly high-end headphone amplifier is driven by cutting edge THX AAA™ (Achromatic
Audio Amplifier) technology with patented feed-forward error correction resulting in infinitesimally
low levels of noise, distortion, and power consumption. Along with the ¼” headphone jack, the NODE X
delivers a no-compromise headphone listening experience.


The NODE X features enhanced dual band WiFi to deliver the best in-class wireless stream quality. Over
20 natively integrated music services and thousands of internet radio stations are accessible directly on
the NODE X or play from a personal digital music library held on a computer or external drive through
the intuitive BluOS app for iOS, Android, or Mac or PC computers. The award-winning BluOS platform is
the only platform that can support up to 64 players, all streaming up to 24-bit/192kHz hi-res audio and
supports lossless file formats and MQA playback, which allows music lovers to listen to the actual
studio masters of favorite albums, as they were intended to be heard. Like a jack of all trades, the
NODE X is equipped with all the inputs and outputs — bring music into the NODE X using HDMI eARC,
WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, Apple AirPlay 2, aptX HD Bluetooth, or USB Type A.


Seamlessly group the NODE X with multiple Bluesound speakers around the home to create an intuitive
multi-room music system. Control the NODE X directly from a smart device or computer, touch panel
controls with presets, voice assistants like Apple’s Siri, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, or by using
the included RC1 Remote Control, which offers one-touch access to any Bluesound player within its
proximity. The NODE X can also integrate into a smart home with full-feature drivers for Crestron,
Control4, URC, RTI, ELAN, and other popular home control systems.

“When we thought about how to celebrate a decade of audio excellence and leadership in wireless hires streaming, we knew we had to start with the NODE,” says Matt Simmonds, Product Manager of
Bluesound. “The NODE X re-imagines some of the best parts of the critically acclaimed, iconic NODE’s
product design – our most popular model – and takes ’just add streaming’ to new performance levels
