Well time to pick up the Bluesound Node 2i this afternoon and have a listen.

Though I’d start a thread for like minded users to discuss!

By all accounts it's a remarkable upgrade in sound quality over Gen2.

Looking forward to your thoughts.

I promised @evil c I’ll take mine over and make a comparison without external DACs. 

Hes worried it will make him ask Santa for an upgrade 😁

Great initial impressions!! 

I really like the BluOs also. 

It has a really analogue sound. To be fair I haven’t run it without the Geiseler yet. 

Iys like playing a really really good pressing.

The bass in “ The Chain” is kicking me in the chest.

Brilliant! Can you keep us in the loop when they add airplay? I dont use apple music but my wife does and can see the appeal of airplay2.

wishing airplay was backward compatible with gen1 but appears not.. santa may sneak a 2i into the racks un announced!

Can I ask what you were using as a streamer before?

I’ve used a Yamaha WCX-50, Logitech Transporter, Squeezebox, Pioneer N-50. 

I was talking to Clive last night and we were on the same page. Many times I good good sound stage with vocals above the tv in the middle. Good separation between left and right. This has all that but the Vocal now seems way deeper than the TV and it’s like all the gaps are filled between left to middle to right. It’s more holographic if you will. 

I find the mid range fast and musical and the bass is solid and not bloated. 

As said the Klein and the BS are on in this scenario so a further test without the Klein is needed to be fair to the BS.

Thanks @jakeyb77

Listening now to the Bluesound2 and didn’t think I would have an itchy upgrade finger for a while. 🙄
