    Node X - worthwhile upgrade

    Compared to the Node, the Node X offers a better DAC and superior headphone circuits. The improvements are audible, particularly with the attack of notes and dynamic range. More hi-fi sounding. Silver finish is well applied. And - it comes with a remote, a nice addition. The implementation of HDMI ARC makes this really nice as part of an integrate audio-video system - it gets along very well with my TV.

    Awesome Add

    This was purchased to update a Node version 2 and really pleased with the purchase! While it looks great (which is good but not as important as the sound), the Node X performs exactly as expected (streaming through an external DAC so I can’t speak to the internal DAC) and a stellar purchase!

    Fantastic add on to legacy system

    I don’t like HEOS, and have built a whole home system around BluOS. The NodeX lets me upgrade my (otherwise awesome) Marantz Cinema 40 to merge the AVR into the whole house environment.

    Perfect refurb, Audio Factory brings it into same price range as Sonos solutions… but Sonos sound quality is just inferior and plastic. Zero depth, muddy, no articulation of instruments or track layers.

    We bought both and compared, BluOS blows Sonos away…
