    1. Love the Bluesound Powernode 2i

      This is a great product that solves a ton of problems in our dedicated workout room. In that room, we have high-end Dynaudio speakers on the wall along with an HDTV, connected to TV via wi-fi (Roku stick) and to a Blu-Ray player via HDMI. With the Powernode, we have a single device that lets anyone in the family listen to high fidelity music via TIDAL (lossless) and control the music via an app on their phones. So, we can be on our trainer bikes or the elliptical and control music (playlist, volume) via iPhone or iPad without leaving the equipment. The Powernode obtains the music directly over wi-fi (the iPhone controls the Powernode, but the Powernode does the music streaming itself) and can keep running even if the phone goes away. Sound quality is outstanding because our source is lossless music from TIDAL (the Powernode even supports master quality audio recordings, unlike other competing units), and the built-in preamp and amps are solid for the money. One could spend 3x on a Naim, but the Naim doesn't support MQA. We also route TV audio through the Powernode using an optical cable connection from the TV, so TV sound is via the high-quality Dynaudio speakers, not the crappy ones on the TV. (A TV soundbar might work better for just the TV, but I'm skipping that expense and using the Dynaudios.)

      All of this replaced a more complicated set-up involving a preamp and amp from the 1990s that couldn't be controlled via phone. We had a prior streaming device from which we could get Pandora and route the TV audio, but again, there wasn't an app to control the volume and the switching. Having everything in one unit rocks. Spend under $1,000 on the Powernode, add two high-quality speakers, and use a loss-less source like TIDAL, and your music system will maximize both sound quality and convenience. We use ours in our workout room, but the same setup would produce phenomenal music/convenience/value in a living room or study room, too.
