Bluesound Powernode Edge (N230)
The POWERNODE EDGE offers music lovers an affordable entry point into the world of HiFi stereo. They desire a premium, modern audio solution that fits into everyday life – a product that is looks good, works simply and is convenient to use, while never sacrificing audio quality. The POWERNODE EDGE is that product.
Just Add Speakers
Life is hectic. Your sound system should be simple. The POWERNODE EDGE is a music streaming, hi-res amplifier with all the smarts built in, so all you need to do is just add speakers. Find your favorite pair of passive loudspeakers and hook them up to the POWERNODE EDGE to experience hi-fidelity audio no matter where or what you’re listening to. To go even further, add the PULSE SUB+ wireless subwoofer for a powerful 2.1 stereo system or use the POWERNODE EDGE to power the rear channels of a wireless Bluesound surround sound setup. Whether you are streaming music, catching up on the latest show, or relaxing with your record collection – just sit back and let the POWERNODE EDGE do the work. Simple.
Bluesound’s deep roots in high-performance amplifier design drive us to create high-quality products for everyday listening.
Our all-new, closed-loop DirectDigitalTM amplification platform forms the foundation for the POWERNODE EDGE’s hi-fi performance. With 40W per channel of clean, easy-going, understated power, the POWERNODE EDGE is a perfect companion for a wide range of audio experiences. You’ll benefit from the enhanced clarity that the POWERNODE EDGE brings – its DirectDigitalTM system is amp and digital-to-analog convertor combined. The closed-loopdesign uses feedback (the good kind!) which compensates for the passive components required in an amplifier, resulting in a clean, distortion-free signal. Cut out the bad noises and focus on the good ones.
Like its bigger POWERNODE brother, the POWERNODE EDGE shows us that great things come in small packages, delivering hi-fi amplification from an incredibly slim and compact form factor roughly the size of your average hardcover book. In other words, the POWERNODE EDGE defies all expectations for how big a high-performance amp should be. Its size and shape means it can fit perfectly on a credenza under your TV or be tucked away behind the cabinet if preferred.
If being installed into a centralized whole-home system, the stackable POWERNODE EDGE takes up minimal rack space at 1U height and a half-rack width. A simple multi-orientation mounting bracket is included, so that mounting the POWERNODE EDGE on a wall, behind a cabinet, or in an audio closet is easier than ever..
The POWERNODE EDGE provides incredible flexibility for any setup. Start with BluOS: it’s the world’s leading hi-res multi-room system. It connects you to all the music ever recorded, and lets you stream audio all around the house, wirelessly. Add Bluesound speakers to any room in your home and create a multi-room listening experience alongside the POWERNODE EDGE. With convenient HDMI eARC and dual optical/analog input on the back, plus support for Dolby® Digital decoding, and full control using the BluOS app, the POWERNODE EDGE makes your music, movies, shows, games, and podcasts sound better. Its size and sound mean it will be completely at home powering your TV setup, your surround channels in a wireless home theater, your desktop workspace, your backyard outdoor speakers, or even becoming a teenager’s first real hi-fi.
An elegant, angled glass interface with capacitive touch LED controls graces the front of the POWERNODE EDGE, providing you with an intuitive touchpoint for play, pause, volume, and next/last selection. Basic controls on an all-in-one music machine are important – in the rhythms of daily life you don’t always have the app or a remote control nearby to adjust volume or skip the song. Of course, Bluesound players can be adjusted hands-free with Amazon Alexa Skills or Actions on Google too, in the case that voice control works best for you. And just like the other Bluesound players, the POWERNODEEDGE features IR remote control learning, which means that you can program any infrared remote control (like your TV remote) to control functions, inputs, and presets on the POWERNODE EDGE.
Built for the Future
Our latest generation quad-core processor boasts all the power and speed required for the demands of a modern era smart amplifier. With built-in extra headroom for whatever technologies the future holds, the POWERNODE EDGE fights against the trend for modern technological devices to become obsolete. Its mechanical design works this way too – the amplifier’s heat dissipation is already extremely low, but we’ve added in a custom-designed heatsink and specially-placed heat vents to ensure that long-term performance doesn’t suffer from heat exhaustion, even in more stressful environments. In that sense, the POWERNODE EDGE is over-specified, designed to be staple in your home for years and decades to come.
A customer’s journey into premium audio often starts with a soundbar, upgrading their TV sound
and experiencing the benefits that a purpose-built audio product can bring to their listening.
A simple 2-channel mini-system – with the POWERNODE EDGE as the centerpiece – is an
excellent alternative to a soundbar, offering wider stereo separation and a better overall listening
experience for many types of media and entertainment.
System Designers & Installers
The POWERNODE EDGE is a solution product that offers integrators a premium, powered audio
zone in one compact, easy to install box. Every aspect of the POWERNODE EDGE has been

bracket included in the box. All of this is layered on BluOSTM, Bluesound’s premium multi-room
audio platform that includes seamless smart home integration with the world’s leading control
Exisiting Bluesound and NAD BluOS Owners

listening area, the POWERNODE EDGE offers an affordable do-it-yourself solution to extend hi-res
listening into other rooms and spaces. Offices, bedrooms, kitchens, and outdoor spaces are just a
few of the areas that can be powered by a POWERNODE EDGE with a pair of loudspeakers.
