” The Mu-so Qb2 remains the top choice.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 Product of the Year.

Mu-so quality - cubed

The Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation offers the same award-winning streaming and much of the sound quality of its bigger brother, just in a smaller package. Packed into this stylish wireless speaker is a world-class streamer, stereo speaker system, powerful processing, flexible connectivity and multiroom ability. Perfect for tighter places, such as your desk or bedside table, the Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation delivers the best in sound, all around your home.

Even more musical
The 2nd Generation Mu-so Qb features upgraded speakers, co-developed with its audio partner, Focal. Combined with a powerful new multi-core processor, these deliver a higher level of sonic precision – letting you hear detail that gets lost with other speakers.

Spacious, stereo sound – from a single box
Unlike some rivals, the Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation is built to deliver full stereo sound. Beneath the grille are stereo, two-way speakers that are specifically angled to deliver an immersive, stereo sound. Far from being ordinary speakers, the Naim Mu-so Qb G2 uses high quality, soft dome tweeters paired with custom mid-range drivers for a smooth and natural sound.

Deceptive power
Despite its compact case, the Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation still delivers a mind-blowing 300 watts of pure power. Two-thirds of the power is channelled to the stereo speakers with a meaty 100 watts dedicated to the bass. Helping this baby speaker sound so punchy is a custom-made woofer with the backup of two further passive ABRs (Auxiliary Bass Radiators). What this mean is that you’ll struggle to find any wireless speaker this size with such a full-range and powerful sound.

The rhythm of Naim
Amongst hi-fi experts, Naim are revered for the 'timing' or sense of rhythm their products portray. The Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation is no different and manages to make many rivals sound cold and cynical by comparison. If you want to feel the soul of the music then no other speaker system around this price will match the sense of timing and cohesion on offer here.

World-class music streamer
At the heart of the Mu-so is Naim’s award-winning music-streaming platform. Developed by 25 engineers, over three years and featured in their flagship, £20,000 ND555 streamer, nothing competes for ease of use and quality. Simply download the Naim app and take control of all your music streaming needs.

Your choice of streaming
Whichever way you stream your music, the Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation delivers. With direct access to Spotify Connect (Premium Spotify account required), Tidal and thousands of Internet radio stations you can enjoy near limitless music at the touch of a preset. Chromecast is built-in, seamlessly linking to hundreds of supporting apps, such as Deezer, Qobuz and SoundCloud. If you prefer to stream within your own network, UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play) is also supported – right up to High Resolution 32 bit/384 kHz files.

AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth
Stream music from your Apple device or iTunes with AirPlay 2 and you’ll not only hear your music library or favourite music service but also take advantage of Apple’s multiroom system. Alternatively, for a quick and easy link for anyone in the room, link a smartphone by Bluetooth and share the music instantly.

Multiroom made easy
As well as Apple’s AirPlay 2, the Mu-so offers two other ways to go multiroom. Either go Google or, better still, use the Naim app to link up all your compatible Naim products. The slick Naim app then lets you listen to the same music all around your home or different music in different rooms. The latest Mu-so is also Roon Ready for enhanced music searching.

Connect via USB
If you prefer the certainty of a wired connection, the Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation is also fitted with a USB interface. Plug in your iPhone, iPad, iPod, MP3 player or USB stick and enjoy music played back to the highest standard.

Boost your TV or games console sound
Fitted with both optical digital and 3.5mm auxiliary analogue inputs, you can boost the sound of your other components, too.

The style standard setter – made better
Enhancements to the iconic control centre now include a proximity sensor that lights up the display as your hand approaches. The touch pad now features direct access to favourite playlists, radio stations, Spotify resume and multi-room functionality. The premium aluminium casing is now finished in a darker, burnished grey and there’s a wider choice of optional grilles colours – making it look even more attractive in your home.

Hear just how good compact wireless speakers can sound, with the class-leading Naim Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great once hard wired. Wi-fi performance shocking This sounds great, no question. However I had dreadful trouble when trying to connect it to my domestic wi-fi. Phones and laptops work reliably but for some reason the Qb just would not. Due to my ongoing frustration I eventually set up an ethernet cable from my router to the machine. Now fully reliable, but it really shouldn't be like that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great expectations. I was expecting a lot more from this sound wise and that is my fault because I am from another generation that, during the 70's/80's, when I was a teen - 20's when music is everything, I always had big speakers and full size separates to play my prog rock classics,(GENESIS, FLOYD, ELP, CRIMSON etc) so I though that technology had somehow beat science to produce that same depth and range you get from big quality systems. But it can't. It might be the best at what it does and looks awesome but an old rocker, now into jazz, needs something bigger. Sorry about that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refined sound, terrible app The Naim 2nd Generation Qb (Qb2) is a beautiful looking object. A slight bulge on each side breaks the strict cube shape but makes it look like there's some muscle bursting to get out from inside! Once you've turned off the booming "Loudness" setting (deeply buried away in an obscure menu option!) the sound is very refined. Feed it some high res source and you will be richly rewarded. It will go quite loud without a problem too. We filled our garden easily. You can do the basics from the remote or the controls on the top of the Qb2 but to get the most out of it you must use the (free) Naim App. Unfortunately this is SLOoooooooow. (Android version - can't comment on Apple) Sometimes it can take 10 to 20 seconds to choose a source. It also loses contact with the Qb2 frequently and if you change tracks using the remote or the top buttons then the app doesn't update so you are forced to restart it to get it back in synch. Detailed control is also missing. For example; there seems to be no way to set wireless networking whilst it is hard-wired so no way to switch between the two without physical disconnection. I have also not found a way to setup multiple wi-fi connections so that the Qb2 can be quickly switched depending on signal strength. In conclusion; the Qb2 is beautiful to look at and sounds great but it is badly let down by a poor companion app. At £500 it would be an absolute steal but at £750 Naim needs to do better, and quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stereo Hi if i buy 2 unit - can i connect them ti have stereo sound mean one for right and one for left Chanel ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolut fantastic Very good sound for rooms from 25-to 40 sqm. I am happy that I bought the Qb 2nd Gen. instead of Sonos play 5. Previously I had Denon DSD500. No connection. The Naim is on other stage of quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and style The Mu-so Qb for me is the best wireless speaker you can get. It’s easy to set up, connects perfectly with my Spotify and looks so classy, but best of all, the sound quality is superb! The sound is full, rich and the detail it picks out is amazing. I’m hearing sounds that I’ve just never heard before in 50 years of listening to music! ... The Mu-so Qb isn’t cheap, but when you live with it and listen to it, it’s worth every penny ... and it’s made in England.
