    1. Very nice product, poor interface

      This is hard to review because no matter how great the product is, if using it is a PITA as in this case, the review by necessity has to reflect that. It should be said that many of these interfaces need more work, PlayFi is the worst IMO. I have been using Sonos products and I have to say it has been the most pain free to date, and in fact I have replaced this Node 2i with a Port because of the ease of use, especially with the new Sonos os which brings hi res streaming with it.
      The Bluesound app has a 2 star rating in the app store and I found that rating appropriate. I wish I had seen it before I bought this unit. However AudioLab gets a 10 star rating for handling the return.
