Re: Adding a Node2 to a Home Theatre Group

Don’t forget NAD M10 which runs BluOS native and fearless HDMI input. In order to stream 5.1 or indeed 7.1 channels and keep them synchronized across multiple devices is much harder than a pure stereo. 8 channels compared to 2. additionally the master source is decoding from HDMI and needs to keep t...

Currently you can also group a Node2 + external amp with other BS devices. You also want those to play in sync, so I don’t see the difference. The simple support reply would be: “we can’t control synchronization with external (digital) amps.. ;) I have a node 2 and powernode 2 grouped as a pseudo h...

Re: Really starting to hate my Bluesound experience

As someone who regularly works with developers building apps with Bluetooth support - I can only second the above advice. Apply your Android patches!

Re: B&W subwoofer stays in standby mode

It should not be confused. But there is the 12v trigger option - the Node has a 12v trigger output and the sub a 12v trigger input. The investment of a 3.5mm cable would ensure it always works as expected
