    Hi Kevin

    The backup utility for Playlists is designed to ensure you can restore playlists in the event something goes wrong.

    Bluesound Playlists are proprietary to BluOS to ensure they can easily be replicated to all the Bluesound Players in your home allowing you to utilise the Playlist you make on your Living Room POWERNODE can easily be played on the PULSE MINI in the Kitchen.

    "The backup utility for Playlists is designed to ensure you can restore playlists in the event something goes wrong."

    [Kevin] - Of course. But the standard m3u format allows for this. As would any format.

    "Bluesound Playlists are proprietary to BluOS"

    [Kevin] Yikes! This statement sounds like something Apple would say. I cancelled my order of the Pulse Mini and will only have the Node 2 in my house until BlueSound decides not to be "proprietary". 

    If you don't want to play nice than you will not be playing in my sandbox. I'll wait for another company that is more willing to support standard music flows.

    The Node 2 is a great sounding machine for the money and very impressive. The software is a bit flaky but I've been able to manage with it. I have also seen a great desire from BlueSound to try to improve it.

    But the desire to be a closed proprietary system is something I'm not willing to continue to invest in. I'll wait for an alternative.

    Buyer beware!

    I am very sorry to hear this. Unfortunately they require to be in order to meet our high standard of a true multi-room experience like no other.

    A major part of the great sound you are hearing is a result of being a closed system.

    A proprietary format for a playlist does not result in higher quality sound. Your comment is utterly ridiculous.
