Node X

Anyone had a chance to hear the Node X and compare it to the N130? I am thinking of trying one to dip my toe in streaming for the first time.


I am really interested to see how you feel after you have some hours on it. The one thing I really can't put up with is a hard, etched treble. I hav chosen electronics and speakers to specifically avoid that trait in my room with my ears.

@stuartbmw3 Me too definitely. Hate hard, etched treble. It is already making good progress and, for me, who isn't going to do much streaming, it is already a success and pretty much what I want. I went after the Node X because of the better DAC and along with the wifi and ease of use, it is exactly what I wanted. 

just found this thread and it's interesting to read the listing impressions included excess treble.  I felt the same way...out of the box there was a lot of treble coming from this device.  Over say 5 hours this softened and now, about a three or four weeks in and around 30 hours I feel like it's much improved.  I think it's still setting in but the sound is much more open and there is a bigger soundstage with the X vs. the N130.
