”The Mu-so Qb retains an inherently likeable presentation, but has matured over the three years since its first generation.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 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 Great unit great sounds I bought this 3 weeks ago, really pleased with the unit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I take so long to buy this unit! Since the launch and numerous positive media reviews that followed for the second version I have been interested in this unit. And I wish I had made the decision to buy this fabulous unit sooner, it is simply fantastic both in looks and most importantly sound. The staff at the Preston store were excellent as usual and gave me the confidence to buy the unit. Yes, it is expensive but it is a quality product and the detail and balance of the sound is mightily impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelieveably good value and sound WOW! That is the only word for the changes made to the already excellent stand alone speaker/miracle miniature system that is called the Naim Mu-so Qb, now rather 'cleverly' re-imagined as Qb2. And the thing is, Richer Sounds had it in stock when so many retailers did not – amazing! So, I ordered late on a Thursday evening (with free delivery) and it arrived Monday – outstanding service. I highly recommend the 6 years guarantee as well, because it is effectively a no cost option if you don't need it (full refund if not used) and there for your benefit and reassurance if you do! (Which is pretty unlikely given Naim's reputation for quality and build standard). Anyway, the Qb2 is wonderful in every respect: internet radio, Tidal, Qobuz, Chromecast, Airplay2, my own music files – they all sound really great: detailed, alive and realistic. The multi-room function is very useful and synchronises every time without any messing and the new remote control is helpful - although I usually rely on the efficient Naim control app. Yes - it is seemingly expensive for a 'wireless speaker' but it is so much more than that and constantly impresses. I cannot recommend Qb2 enough – or indeed Richer Sounds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Sound Quality We ordered this and had to wait two months for delivery, which is something I've never had to do before but I can confirm that it was definitely worth the wait. The Naim Qb has gone beyond any expectations I had in terms of sound quality and usability. I downloaded the app only iPad and iPhone and after a couple of teething problems with my home network - the app now works flawlessly, enabling us to control the Qb remotely via our phones. I love the internet radio presets and the sheer number of stations you can get on via the app. The interface ion the app is easy to use and also allows linking up to a TV, like we have done to use as a sound bar. We even got a clip on fascia from Naim to suit the colour of the room. This is not a cheap piece of kit but make no mistake - it's worth every penny. Absolutely stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Sonos Great looking and sounding speakers. after the Sonos debacle I’m pleased to have switched. Apple Air works well as does Tidal and the multi room link. Great service as always from Bournemouth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely piece of kit Sound quality is great. As some prior reviews have said this is not a cheap piece of kit and i have it linked with its larger brother too. I have found the wireless connection can get funny if not used for a while but number one support of turn off and on again usually works without needing a full setup. Multiroom can be very slow to setup at times but once going no issues. I did have the Heos previously which unfair to compare on price but that was very flaky and would often distort the sound and initial quality not as good either. Although as others have said the app can be a little slow but I think the features are good and works well with multiple inputs from spotify, tunein etc. Another thing to note with difference to the HEOS is they discontinued support for some stations on tunein but not the case with the muso so not an issue with the app but the platform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from £750. No pain, no gain! If you have never heard this thing in action you would be rightly doubtful about spending this sort of money on a small standalone speaker. However, I bought one and after a couple of months with it I can honestly say it was worth every penny. It sounds amazing, clear and powerful music, all detail and subtlety is there, music comes alive, massive untroubled volume for the size of it, steady and reliable connections to the internet and UPnP NAS server with a good quality WiFi signal, good Tidal integration and control with the app. I love it and I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound I have an older version of the Mu-so, which is fantastic. This one is more fantastic!
