USB output on latest Bluesound Node
I didn't really do anything.  I ran the update from the app and then the usb worked.  Sorry I can't be of more help. - Bob  
USB output on latest Bluesound Node
I have the same Node.  I was told to unplug it, remove the coax and hook up the USB cable.  It worked for me. Somewhere in the menu section of the app are also some settings.  USB sounded better on my system. - Bob
