Audiophile-grade amplification packed into the POWERNODE EDGE makes it easy to connect a pair of passive speakers to experience an incredible all-in-one HiFi solution. Easily connect wired sources, like a TV or turntable, with HDMI eARC or the combo analog/digital input. Use the Bluesound POWERNODE EDGE as a discrete amp in a standalone setup or combine it with other BluOS devices to create a multi-room music system. 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.

Compact Power

Bring your speakers to life with the powerful, punchy 2 x 40 watts DirectDigital™ amplifier in the Bluesound POWERNODE EDGE, able to handle hi-res, 24 bit/192kHz 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. The POWERNODE EDGE decodes Dolby® Digital content on its own and can also be used to power the rear channel speakers of a wireless home theater system.

Your dream HiFi setup doesn’t have to take up all your real estate. With the Bluesound POWERNODE EDGE, gone are the days of bulky, oversized amplifiers. Comparable in size to the average hardcover book, this small yet mighty HiFi system transforms any space into a high-fidelity haven.

The sleek and compact form factor of the POWERNODE EDGE makes it ideal for secondary rooms like offices and back porches. With a wall-mountable chassis, the POWERNODE EDGE can be installed practically anywhere in your home. Equip speakers in every corner of your house with power plus streaming and hide the POWERNODE EDGE away from sight in nooks like closets or behind sofas.

Intuitive Control with BluOS

Control is always at your fingertips via the BluOS Controller app for iOS, Android, Mac, or Windows PC computers. The POWERNODE EDGE connects to your home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet. Hands-free control is possible with voice assistants like Siri, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant. For professional smart home installers, full-feature drivers are available for Lutron, Crestron, RTI, Elan, and other popular control systems.

Using the BluOS Controller App, select songs from popular streaming services like Spotify, Tidal, Qobuz, SiriusXM, from your own music library through Apple AirPlay2, aptX HD Bluetooth, or even a network-connected drive or USB hard drive. Use the elegant capacitive touch panel for quick-access controls like play, pause, and volume up/down, and previous/last track. BluOS is Roon Ready with Roon Integration that supports files stored on internal and external hard drives and NAS.
