    Excellent upgrade for Bluesound Node 2 !
    I installed it on Node 2. If you follow precisely the instruction guide, it’s quite easy. As shown in the assembly guide, long nose pliers are required to disconnect the connectors. Finding the good pliers was the most difficult.
    After assembly, I immediately tested it and I was disappointed with the sound !
    I decided to let it burn in during the day playing music and came back in the evening, 8 hours later.
    I didn’t recognize my Node 2, the sound was better everywhere, Wonderful !
    The sound was simultaneously softer with more richness and an easy dynamic. The soundstage was easily perceivable. I could listen to music louder without any fatigue. I had the feeling to attend directly to the recording session.
    I didn’t heard until now such richness of these music files (44,1 kHz / 16 bits). Until now my best digital source was my high-end CD player connected to the DAC but after this upgrade the Node 2 took the lead !
    So I decided to listen some transfers from LP to wav files (44/16 and 96/24). Until now I was always disappointed with these files because the transfers sounded poor in direct comparison with LP. This test was the definitive proof of the progress of the upgraded Node 2 , I was able to get back the original softness and the richness of the LP. It’s now a pleasure to rediscover these recordings immediately accessible on the SSD.

    Equipment for test:
    – Node2 + PD Creative Upgrade Kit + Ultra low noise PSU. Node was connected by Coax SPDIF to DAC.
    – SSD connected through USB to Node 2 and loaded with wav files extracted from CD or bought from Qobuz (192/24) and transfers from LP (44/16 and 96/24)
    – DAC and headphone amplifier Fostex HPA8C upgraded with Burson and Sparko AOP
    – Headphone MEZE Empyrean
    – Accuphase Integrated
    – Focal Electra Loudspeakers + Velodyne subwoofer
    – Neotech UP OCC Cables everywhere
    – iFi AC Purifier
