I am not sure about the Node model number. Its the basic unit with no disk storage. I am purdy sure the Node is Wifi capable so you can start with just setting up the node on you existing network. If that is flakey and you are getting drops then you can augment your network. Many people on this forum have success with extenders and wal warts but I personally think that technology sucks. At least it has for me and people I know. I would suggest exploring going to a mesh network topology. Little extra $$ but worth it if you are going to stream, easy setup as well. Have one of the network-nodes at your rig and hardwire ethernet to the Blue Sound-Node.
The Cambridge unit is also nice but its double the $$. But also a good choice.
Test the waters with the Node. If streaming is for you (hooked on the crack pipe) then you can start to explore whether you want separates or all in one streamer/DAC from high end manufactures like Bryston, Lumin and Moon.
