Doesn't work with Polk XT20 speakers

Bill from Rio Rancho, NM on 3/6/2024

Verified employee review (What's this?)

Purchased this amp & Wiim Amp from Crutchfield in the same week. (My first time dealing with Crutchfield. They have excellent service in every way!) I wanted whichever had the best sound and experience for small woodshop. I returned the Powernode Edge and kept the Wiim Amp. 1. The Edge had a continuous static sound when hooked up to my Polk XT20 speakers. The Wiim Amp did not. You can turn up the music to drown it out, but it was always there like a blank spot on the dial of an AM radio. 2. Hooked both the Edge and the Wiim to my Klipsch Reference tower speakers and the sound is clean, but lacking just a tad compared to the Wiim Amp. This is probably due to Wiim Amp having an equalizer while the Edge has tone controls only. The Wiim was more "open" in sound and punches a little harder on the low end. 3. The WIFI internal antenna is weak. BluOS diagnostic said fair signal at -65dBm. Wiim Amp displayed -55dBm and iPhone Airport scanner said the same thing. 4. Customer support via phone got a return call a day later but did not fix anything. More than a week later and I'm still getting emails saying "We will be able to help you soon but we are behind...", even though I told them I returned it. 5. Blue OS is better then Wiim Home, but it did crash (lock up) a couple of times and was finicky when connecting to WIFI (it likes 2.4hz). Once running though, it is a better OS. This isn't a critique of Bluesound products, just the Edge to the Wiim. Sorry Blueso

Pros: Small package Sounds pretty good OS is nice to use over competitors All in one system Lot's of streaming services

Cons: Does not work with Polk XT20 speakers Very weak WIFI antenna Very slow customer service response (days) Doesn't have the bass I hopped for

Finally whole house done right

This device makes Blusound what it always needed to be, a whole house solution to you music needs. It works perfectly with my existing speakers and allowed me to get rid of Apple Airplay Express routers I have used in the past. Not only do I not need amps in my remote locations, I also do not need my computer on to listen to whole house distribution. I have wanted this capability since I first bought my NAD amp with the Blusound module.

Pros: built in amp sound as good as any retail consumer level component.

Cons: A bit pricey.

Great little amplifier.

P from Rochester, NY on 3/8/2023

Verified employee review (What's this?)

Sounds great for an all in one device. The amplifier is clean and sounds like there is little to no distortion. For the price it is impossible to get a better sounding system using separate components. Highly recommended! When using a subwoofer with the built in crossover the device sounds like more power than the specs suggest.

Pros: Great sound, Roon compatitable, Great DAC. Great Software. Looks great

Cons: Power may be a little low for large or inefficient speakers.

Great amp

Kurt from Houston, TX on 2/26/2023

Verified employee review (What's this?)

A high quality and very cost effective solution for adding distributed audio to a room. This works perfectly with Bluesound's phone app and also performs perfectly with services like Roon.

Pros: Good sound Low cost vs other options Roon compatibility

Cons: Only 40 watts - if you need more, Bluesound makes an 80 watt amp.

It sounds great. Just plug a good set of speakers in and you are ready to roll. I used it to replace my main sound bar. The music and Tv sound so much better. It is perfect for a small to medium sized room.
