Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation
• A superb-sounding, fully-featured wireless speaker that justifies its considerable expense – 5* What Hi-Fi? Review (Tested at £1299)
One box does it all
Just like its predecessor, the Mu-so 2nd Generation is for music lovers who don’t want to compromise. Packed into this stylish wireless speaker is a world-class streamer, powerful speaker system, punchy processing, flexible connectivity and multiroom ability. Match this to Naim’s class-leading sound quality and you have, quite simply, one of the best wireless speaker systems going.
Inimitable Naim sound
With over four decades of high-end audio experience, Naim can rightly claim to be one of the very best hi-fi companies in the world. Fitted to Bentley motor cars, premium yachts and, not to mention some of the finest studio and home systems, Naim has a pedigree like no other. Renowned for their famous blend of pace, rhythm and timing, the Naim sound is truly additive and totally unique.
The 2nd generation Mu-so features upgraded speakers, co-developed with its audio partner, Focal. Combined with the powerful new multi-core processor, these deliver a higher level of sonic precision – letting you hear detail that gets lost with other speakers.
Re-engineering the space inside the cabinet frees up an extra 13% volume. This extra space helps give the bass response extra room to ‘breathe’, meaning it sounds deeper and more powerful.
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 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 your TV up with HDMI ARC
New to the latest Mu-so is an HDMI ARC input. This is the ideal connection for a TV, making the Mu-so a very superior sound-base. Now you can get a huge upgrade to your TV’s sound as well as music playback, without the need for separate soundbar and wireless speaker.
Inputs to make the Mu-so your music hub
As well as HDMI, the Mu-so also comes with USB, optical digital and 3.5mm analogue inputs. If you still have a CD player, you can connect this via optical or analogue. If you’re a vinyl fan then why not plug in a turntable (via phono pre-amp) to the 3.5mm analogue input. For quick access to music files on a media device, the USB input is ideal.
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.
Don’t compromise on sound, style or features. With the Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation you get it all.
