    Very quick delivery to the US within a week of ordering. Almost immediately i received an email alerting me to a *possible* manufactering glitch and requested I send photos of board- which I did and got an almost immediate response that my board was fine…but for my trivial inconvenience I was being credited with a 15% discount…which I immediately received.
    The instructions were very clear and unambigious,but did not fully warn me how difficult snapping it back together would be…it took me twice as long to close it back as it did to open it, remove the existing board, and fix in the PD one.

    I too use a very large LPS previously used on a SBT (1200VA transformer, 40k uF in filter caps, discrete regulators, additional choke filtering etc, so its no suprise the analog outputs on the N130 were very much improved over the rather bland and compressed presentation the stock player gives. BUT the digital output also got a boost with more extension at both ends and an overall purer and less hashy tonality.
    The 2.5mm DC plug that i had been using with the Squeezebox Touch was way too sloppy and loose into the PD board, so i got a 2.5->2.1mm adaptor from Amazon which was a much better fit…but i also ordered a new DC cable with the proper plugs hardwired from Ghentaudio- which was only delivered today, and will be tested shortly.
    Regardless…this is a highy recommended upgrade- just be prepared to unshuck an oyster when you try to close the Node back.

    Used with Allo Shanti LPS and Signal cable power cable for a very noticeable sound improvement. Excellent products, highly recommended.

    Received and installed the power interface for the Bluesound NODE and the improvements are much more than I expected. Thank you!

    WOW. i paired this with a cheap linear power supply and it is spectacular. i am all in at $220.00 and is well worth it. i use my node as streamer only and still makes a big difference. truly takes the node to a new level as just a streamer. wish pawel would offer a 120v lps for this, it would be one stop shopping. highly recommended.

    I saw reviews of this and thought I’d give it a try—I already have a 5v 3a linear power supply that was custom made for a Squeezebox 3. I’ve been tweaking every part of my system—wires, tubes, different amps and preamps without much change in what I’d describe as hash. But the problem was at the source—a new Bluesound Node. Installing this was relatively easy with the instructions being very clear. The hardest part was reassembly—seating the top to fit under the hinges. The sound cleared up dramatically, both the analogue and digital outs. Linn used to say music started with the source, so spend half your budget on a good turntable. In this case improving the source of your music is relatively cheap. I was hesitant to modify a nearly new streamer, but it was definitely worth it.

    I was expecting a subtle, if any, difference from installing this mod. Instead, I’m blown away. Every aspect of the music is better, for a fairly minimal investment. I honestly can’t imagine NOT installing this mod if you care about high-resolution output from the NODE. Installation took all of 15 minutes and was very, very easy.

    Świetna robota Panie Pawle. Jestem pod ogromnym wrażeniem. Dźwięk jest niesamowity w całym paśmie. Dodam że pierwotnie miałem zasilacz impulsowy firmy na i. Było nieźle, ale po zmianie na zasilacz liniowy jest imponująco!!!

    The board was easy to install and fit perfectly. The sound was very much improved. I could go into the separation and the way the sound stage, placement of the instruments was closer to a live performance. But I just will cut to the chase: if you do any upgrade to the new Bluesound Node this is the one to do! You won’t regret it. I live in the US so had to source a 120v linear power supply from China. The systems work seamlessly together.

    The music sounds fantastic, noticable improvement. Same quality as before, very well done.

    Duża poprawa jeśli chodzi o samego DACa ale w dalszym ciągu to nie jest poziom mojego Myteka Brooklyn. Jeśli zaś chodzi o sam transport to nie słyszę już różnic między transportem z Node a bezpośrednim połączeniem NASa do DACa Brooklyn’a. Zmiana zdecydowanie w dobrą stronę.
