Sorted. Now purchased Upgraded Node 2i.

Recommended Posts

I prefer black to white units, but not a deal breaker.  Let me know if you’re selling. 
Cheers

Marlin

And let me know if you get no response and want any advice on doing the upgrade yourself. It's not scary...

Upshot, if you do the work yourself, it’s the cheapest point to quality streaming audio. 
you can get better, but costs much more. 
howvee, new product coming soon, so might be a better option on the horizon from Bluesound.

They’re bound to have something in development, but god knows when it’ll be ready. 
I wish the made a version without a DAC, so those of us with good DAC’s can use their own. 
I bought a Topping D90 a while back. It sounds wonderful. It‘a even better once you turn off the Pre amp and Bluetooth functions,  and use it purely as a DAC.  Looking forward to hearing the Node 2i through it.

Most folk here do use the Node purely as a streamer, I believe. It means you are forking out for a redundant DAC, but it still stacks up admirably as a £500 pure streamer IMHO. Enjoy.
