The POWERNODE EDGE combines streaming sources, control and amplification in one sleek and affordable player. All you need to do is connect a pair of passive speakers to experience an incredible all-in-one HiFi solution. Control all your music with the intuitive BluOS Controller app. Play from a personal music library, or even directly from an external USB drive. Easily connect wired sources, like a TV or turntable, with HDMI eARC or the combo analog/digital input. Add the PULSE SUB+ wireless subwoofer for a powerful but compact 2.1 stereo system or even use the POWERNODE EDGE to power the rear channels of a wireless Bluesound surround sound setup.

Bring your speakers to life with the powerful, punchy 2 x 40 watts DirectDigital™ amplifier in the POWERNODE EDGE, handling hi-res, 24 bit/192 kHz files and MQA-encoded tracks with ease. Enjoy clarity in playback of everything from densely-layered heavy metal tracks to whisper-quiet dialogue in movies and TV shows.

Control is always at your fingertips via the BluOS Controller app for iOS, Android, Mac, or PC, or using the elegant capacitive touch panel for quick-access controls like Play, Pause, and Volume Up/Down. The POWERNODE EDGE is connected to your home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, integrating seamlessly with the most popular smart home control systems like Crestron, Control4, URC, RTI, ELAN, and others. Hands-free control is possible with voice assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google Voice.

The POWERNODE EDGE is designed with a compact form factor to suit any décor and comes with a multi-orientation wall mounting bracket to hide in closets or behind sofas. Easy to spec and simple to stack, smart home installers will appreciate its 1U rack height and half-rack width, along with an easy-access touch control panel for everyday playback functions and configuration.
