Thanks for the reply @JohnRice
The surround capability might be a newish feature of the POWERNODE. I’m very new to this device so I’m not sure.
With all that being said I’m most likely sticking to a 2 channel set up for a while (1-2 years)...
I'm excited to be on this forum. I recently upgraded my speakers in my modest set up to KEF LS50 Meta.
I quickly realized it was time to upgrade my amp, and since I only have a two-speaker set up I went with the POWERNODE as it meets my current needs with some room to expand later...
