Rated 5 out of 5 based on 2 reviews   |   Review this product
Excellent value for money
Excellent value for money and so simple to set-up with my Naim system. Although I was very sceptical at first from reading other reviews, I have to say that the Node 2 has far exceeded my expectations and improved the enjoyment of listening to streamed audio no end. One of the best purchases I have made for quite some time.

Unbeatable sound quality
If you stream your music, this is the player you need. Great app and simple to integrate with existing HiFi equipment. 100% recommended especially for listening to MQA on Tidal.
