    Bluesound Node 2i DAC vs. Squeezebox 3?

    Anyone know how these two DACs compare?
    Regards,

    2 entirely different beasts from different eras.

    From what I have read the Bluesound has the capability of 24/192 but only with BluOS. Its Bluetooth capability is 24/48 and otheriwse it is Airplay which is 16/44.1 - again this is from limited reading.

    The SB3 will cope with a max of 24/48 but worls natively with LMS.

    If you are considering replacing the SB3 and still want to use LMS there are much better alternatives than the Bluesound IMHO.
