$899

Wireless music through your favorite speakers

The Bluesound PowerNode 2i is a high-performance stereo amplifier that can also be part of a wireless Bluesound multi-room audio system. Use it to power a pair of speakers and enjoy clear, accurate sound. The HDMI ARC input lets you connect your TV and use it as a source. And the PowerNode 2i can stream that TV audio signal to other Bluesound wireless components on your home Wi-Fi® network.

Ready for your high-performance speakers

The Bluesound PowerNode 2i has a high-performance stereo amplifier built in. With 120 watts of total system power, it can even drive demanding floor-standing speakers. An advanced 32-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and blazing-fast processor ensure that your high-resolution digital files and other music will sound clear and richly textured.

Compatible with AirPlay 2

Built-in Apple AirPlay 2 technology lets you stream audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through your Bluesound system. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies.

And if you subscribe to Apple Music®, you can do even more. Use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV 4K to control Apple Music with voice commands. Tell it what selection or playlist to play — and which Bluesound speakers or components you want it to play through.

High-quality two-way Bluetooth streaming

The PowerNode 2i features aptX® HD Bluetooth streaming for higher-fidelity sound with compatible Bluetooth devices. The system is backward-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth, too. You can even share that Bluetooth source with other Bluesound music players around your house that are connected to your network. And for convenient late-night listening, you can also stream wirelessly from the PowerNode 2i to a paired set of wireless headphones.

A universe of music options

Bluesound is compatible with virtually all digital music formats — including high-resolution files up to 24-bit/192kHz. Access the music stored on your computer or a networked hard drive. Stream from internet radio stations and online services like Spotify®, Deezer, and TIDAL (including their high-res MQA service tier). You can also enjoy downloads from high-res music sites such as HDtracks.

A USB input conveniently lets you play files "locally" from a flash drive or hard drive — ideal when friends come over with their own music.

Control it all with an app

The BluOS controller app is a free download for both Apple® and Android™ devices. Select songs from your smartphone or tablet. The app displays all of your music services, internet radio stations, and digital music libraries stored on your computer or server.
