Bluesound Powernode 2i

Can anyone tell me how long the Bluesound Powernode 2i model has been out? I'm considering this with the LS50 Metas which I demoed yesterday. Really keen on it but I was thinking that if it's been out for a while then it may get updated. I'm one of those weird tech types who hates buying products mid-cycle.

Also, are there better alternatives to the amp in that price range. I would love the Atom but it's out of my budget.

It's been out since October 2018 I think.
Without knowing how you plan to use it and with what it may be difficult to note anything better
There's a second-hand hand Atom on eBay for £1220

Hi. What was electronics did you hear the LS50 with? And are the LS50 wireless 2 out of your budget?

this is the question i was going to ask !
I demoed it with the Powernode 2i and B&W PV1D (I already have this sub). The wireless 2 aren't out of my budget but I'm less convinced about KEF keeping the firmware and app updated. Aren't the old LS50s stuck with the old app/features?

I want these speakers to last so I'd prefer to have the ability to switch out the amp in say 5+ years time.

In terms of use. I'm currently using apple music so will be using airplay. Hopefully there will be a time when apple opens up to higher res audio (wishful thinking). I plan to get a turntable at some point in the new year.

No need for the HDMI input as I sold my separate home theatre setup (kept the sub) and just bought the Sonos Arc and Sub Gen 3.
