I am contemplating purchasing into Bluesound. My listening habits are vinyl for 'sit down and listen properly' music, and digital for everything else (including multiroom streaming - I have a Squeezebox configuration). I am most concerned about the vinyl quality.
So, with the above in mind, I like the idea of the convenience of plugging my phono preamp into the Powernode, but am concerned about sound quality degradation. In which case, I'd consider the Node, and keep vinyl out of it (then I'd keep my old amp, which I wanted to replace).
How does the Powernode treat vinyl? Is it straight in and out via analogue, or AD --> DA? (I accept that if I were to stream vinyl in future to other rooms then of course it has to be digitised).
Underpinning this question is the choice between Node + new amp vs Powernode, and I'm pondering that!
