I have a Bluesound Node 2 and will need another similar device for a separate application. I could easily buy another Node 2, but I am curious to know what other products are available with a similar feature set and price.

Thanks !

You could get a Raspberry Pi for around $100.

Looks like it has about the same functions, costs $350. I have one, works well and sounds very good, even using its internal DAC.

Raspberry Pi for the win. Pair it with RuneAudio or MoodeAudio for the win.

a used HEOS HS2 for a set and forget installation, then experiment with Rpi.

Thanks
