If this thread is redundant and covered elsewhere -moderator and FMs pls move this .
For next gen and second system builders i think a SAJAS thread may be useful.
This is possibly the fastest growing category where convenience and quality build come together .Class D also is a major driver.
*Do consider authorized availability in India distributor/dealer
App is key aspect here even before sound quality IMO.

Just one suggestion - instead of PowerNode 2 add the POwerNode 2021, has more power - same price.

for BlueSound - Talk to Jude @The Revolver Club Mumbai. Great guy - always very clear on timelines etc - gives good prices too, you can give him HFV reference. You can also call him and say "Hey Jude", added advantage.

***The new Power Node is just called PowerNode or PowerNode 2021 for making it all clear :) PowerNode 2i relates to the old model. Just suggesting as it causes serious confusion.

FMs - pls check edit/add this list .

Other general guidance for evaluation or checklist
1) Check what app is used -mainstream apps get updated versions , niche apps may not get updated.
2) Most India streaming services are not inbuilt ( Eg : Jio-Saavn wonts appear like Spotify logo within the app).That means you may need to play via BT only
3) Speaker 4R or 4 Ohms compatibility !
4) Inbuilt power supply inside the box or laptop/ type external power supply ?
5) Volume control with traditional analog physical pot or touch type controls
6) Amp used - Class D or Class AB ( is this matters ....)
7)Sub woofer output
8)If possible - read user manual for evaluating - it may throw up valuable info.
9) Form factor - dimensions of unit

If you are OK with DTS Play Fi app - add the Audiolab 6000Play to your list. Great amp + streaming - they combined (kind of) the very well regarded 6000A & 6000N.
