”Just a few tweaks make for a superb second version.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great speaker Great sound and lots of features. It is an eye catching piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice elegant and compact I bought this gem about 2 months ago and am really enjoying it. Beautiful design and accurate with only a little coloration to the sound. Plus it is unobtrusive and doesn’t impose itself either physically or sonically. I found that it was important to use the room adjustment function to get the best out of the little beastie. The software does glitch very occasionally but is very stable most of the time. All in all a delight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound, crisp and clear with lots of bass I bought the first gen and was impressed with the sound, had a great demo in the Richer Sound Croydon store, the app and the quick setup were a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic trademark Naim sound and great features! I bought this for the kitchen to replace a smaller Sonos speaker in there. The difference in sound was amazing, it had all the signature pace, rhythm and timing aspects of my main Naim system, but in a small speaker form. Aside from the sound, I particularly like the presets for favourites, the ability to multi-room with the main system and the remote control.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty Unit twice! I do love this speaker and the sound and usability is exceptional. The no. 5 touch sensitive button did not though work. If you are paying all this money you expect it to be faultless! I spoke to customer service to report it, who told me they had never seen this issue before. Within 2 days of reporting the issue I received a replacement unit which is exceptional service, can not fault them on that.This 2nd unit though has the exact same issue! I’ve only just reported this though so await their response. There must be a batch issue, I do not want a 3rd faulty unit though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely warm sound Bought about a week ago by a technically inadequate old lady. I did manage to set it up using the app and I use the Bluetooth connection with either my Android tablet or phone. The sound is multi layer and clear but decidedly from one point in the room despite being set up for the corner. It fails to recognise the Bluetooth connection inexplicably on occasion but eventually it works. It can also drop the connection sometimes. I have not tried any other of it's abilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my home office Working from home during this time I needed a space that is cut off from the rest of the household - and I have been investing in that space as I spend 8 hours a day - I bought an ergonomic stool and the Naim - it does what I need easily - I only listen to radio 3 and Tidal - its sits on my desk unobtrusive and the remote allows instance mute when the phone goes - all great so far - easy to set up too - bought online and the staff member was very helpful and offered opinions based on real experience which isnt normal these days - people are too frightened - but I appreciated it - they know better than me
