Compact Wireless Music Streaming Amplifier

The POWERNODE EDGE is the perfect segue into “just add speakers” HiFi for the streaming age, combining streaming sources, control and amplification in a sleek and affordable device.

Meet The PowerNode Edge

JUST ADD SPEAKERS.

All you need to do is 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. 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. 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.

COMPACT POWER

Bring your speakers to life with the powerful, punchy 2 x 40 watts DirectDigital™ amplifier in the POWERNODE EDGE, able to handle 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. 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.

SPACE SAVING

Your sonic oasis doesn’t have to take up all your real estate. With the 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.

HI-RES FOR EVERY CORNER

The sleek and compact form factor of the POWERNODE EDGE makes it ideal for secondary rooms like offices and back porches. 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 using the included multi-orientation wall-mount bracket.

INTUITIVE CONTROL

Control is always at your fingertips via the BluOS Controller app for iOS, Android, Mac, PC, or using the elegant capacitive touch panel for quick-access controls like Play, Pause, and Volume Up/Down, and Previous/Last Track. The POWERNODE EDGE connects to your home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet. Hands-free control is possible with voice assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google Voice. For professional smart home installers, full-feature drivers are available for Lutron, Crestron, RTI, Elan, and other popular control systems.
