    Don,t hold your breath. I have node 2 and love the streaming quality.  That being said, the BluOS software support is a real piece of bad product from my experience.  Try to get to talk to someone after repeated email back and forth which advises you to read Some overly manual that ultimately just doesn’t resolve issues...I am an older retired guy with 50 years of music collected and now digitalized so it is frustrating getting told instructions that do not work...

    I guess that the way things are.  Does NAD see all this stuff I read about BluOS? I have used NAD products since the original 3020 series...they have always been fine

    Now that I have been using the Blusound for a few months, I have to say that I continue to be unimpressed by the software in general. Trying to connect to Amazon Music was confusing, and trying to create playlists on Tidal seemed to not work at all. I just opened the desktop app (BluOS Controller) again and lo and behold, the playlists on Tidal that I had created are now showing up. but trying to delete them (the ones I created just to see if ti worked) does not appear to work. I no longer have the ability to create new playlists. When I go to Tidal, the lists I tried to delete appear to be gone, but they remain in the BluOS Controller app, even after closing it and reopening.

    Tony W - is this a standard experience with this software? You tell Pat you will be in touch but ignore my comments. Pat comes back unhappy still 5 months later. Will there be improvements? Nothing much seems to have changed in the 6 months I have had this product, though there have been firmware updates for the player. Do you guys have a roadmap for upcoming features that you can share?

    Hi Tony

    When developing third party services such as TIDAL or Amazon, we are limited to their API. We have been speaking with Amazon about the poor experience and how they can provide us with a better experience for our mutual consumers. As for your TIDAL playlists not deleting, They should refresh and update automatically but againwe are limited to what TIDAL's servers also updating and providng current information. If the problem persists, please try resetting your link by selecting Music Services, TIDAL and logout. Select Help, Diagnostics, Rebbot and restart your Player. Once you are back up and running, select Music Services, TIDAL and log in again.
