RIP IT. STORE IT. DOWNLOAD IT. ALL WITHOUT A COMPUTER.
Rip all your CDs rapidly in lossless high-resolution formats, space-saving MP3, or both simultaneously. Purchase, download and store high-res tracks on a dedicated ultra-quiet 2TB hard-drive – with no computer needed. Access and share your entire digital music collection and stream it in studio-quality to multiple rooms all over the home.
Note, however, that the Vault 2 does not support UPnP or DLNA, and cannot be seen directly by non-Bluesound streamers. One solution is to run a UPnP server on a computer that's on the network, and point that server to the Bluesound using file share.
MADE FOR MORE THAN MP3
Of course Bluesound is compatible with MP3s – and just about every other digital format ever created – but Bluesound was purpose-built for high-res audio. While other companies put a premium on style, Bluesound has spared no expense on the integration of advanced, innovative audio technologies that deliver blazingly fast error-free playback in maximum studio-master recording quality, resulting in absolutely unbeatable performance.
THE FUTURE OF MUSIC IS FAST
Using industry-leading 1GHz ARM Cortex-9 Multi-core processors, you’d think Bluesound was engineered for something more than just audio. Bluesound’s 32-bit architecture combined with 8x oversampling DAC platforms, ensures that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision and clarity – at any volume.
ALL THE MUSIC EVER RECORDED
Discover instant access to millions of songs. Premium high-res music services like TIDAL®, Spotify® and Qobuz® – as well as virtually all other popular music services and internet radio stations are already built-in. Access your downloads and your entire iTunes library – or any other USB NAS drive connected – all without ever turning on a computer. Imagine – Your Music. Your way.
HIFI YOUR WIFI
The NODE 2 uses your home wireless network, and sets up quickly. With an advanced WiFi antenna design and blazing-fast ARM Cortex A9 Processors, Bluesound ensures that there are no skips or delays in every corner of your home – even when streaming high-res audio files.
