Proud owner of a Node 2i here. Beautiful sound - and I think your bluos app is better than Amazon music's own app in many ways.
I'm using the Node 2i in my work room - and was looking to get one for the front room. I have a TV with a speaker either side and a stereo amp - the TV currently goes into the amp via a DAC and other music is fed in via a chromecast.
Now I see that the node 2i has been superseded by the new Node.
My question is this. If I plug my TV into the Hdmi earc input will the centre channel enhancement option be available? I would take the output from the Node via RCA to an input of my stereo amp - and I'm sure the streaming music sound quality would be great - but if I'm watching TV it would be good to be able to enhance the dialog.
The reason I'm asking is because I think the Hdmi input only accepts PCM - stereo - and therefore no separate centre channel is available for enhancement. Is it the case that Centre channel enhancement is currently only available on your soundbar type products?
And actually, I have the same question for the new powernode. Can it produce enhanced dialogue via some sort of phantom centre speaker or centre speaker enhancement?
Thanks again for such a great device as the Node 2i at a price where we can buy it without our wives/husbands going nuts!
