Can I use/hear my BlueSound Node 2i simultaneously via the analogue audio output and via a bluetooth speaker?

    Hello Ronn,

    By pairing Bluetooth headphones or physically connecting headphones to your Node 2i, all the back outputs of your Node 2i will be disabled. This was a design choice by our engineers as having speakers playing audio while connected to headphones would be redundant. 

    I understand that some users may want to use the headphone connection as an additional output and this feedback has been passed to our Quality Assurance team for their consideration This feedback will be reviewed to see if we can include a feature to disable or enable the main outputs while headphones are connected in a future update.

    I have the same request: I want to pair a bluetooth speaker in an adjacent room with the door closed, while letting my music continue to play in the living room.

    Hi Nico

    There is a solution for that - The PULSE FLEX 2i can do that... and more...

    Hello Tony,

    I have the same request not to say disappointment, and your proposal with Flex 2i is not a solution, the Node 2i is advertised as being able to do that, is a multi-room solution, and that being said, this is the meaning of a multi-room solution, being able to stream different music in different rooms on all the outputs in the same time.

    I can't believe that this is not happening, the way you set this up I can keep my old system and replace your Node 2i with our phones to stream whatever music we want in any room we want each of us with their own phones on bluetooth, so why should somebody buy Node 2i? Maybe you convince me why because with this setup I will send it back.

    By the way I just ordered it before I came over this thread.

    I hope your company is an open minded one and do the change if that it is physically possible and not overloading the system. 

    I understand the setup when using headphones through the jack because one stay in the same room, but not with the bluetooth connection (for this there should be the choice of the user to cancel the back outputs or not).

    regards,

    mihai

    Hello Mihai,

    Bluesound players are a Multi-room solution as they allow you to play to multiple Bluesound players in different locations of your all directly through the BluOS app. The BluOS app allows you to play music simultaneously or individually to these players all from one location.

    As I had mentioned previously, I have forwarded this feedback to our Quality Assurance team for their consideration but at this time you will not be able to play audio to the main outputs and a Bluetooth speaker simultaneously. 

    One thing I could suggest as a workaround for this would be to connect your Node to multiple amplifiers in your home using the different outputs available. Since all the back outputs of your Node will play content simultaneously (RCA, Coaxial, and Optical), you could potentially wire multiple sound systems to your Node to have different rooms play the same content from a single player.
