"A small speaker with big personality, the Qb combines style, substance and a whole lot of features at a more affordable price."
'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review.

The award-winning Mu-so, reconfigured

Already a smash hit, the Naim Mu-so has quickly become the music system to beat at its price range. With similar features, digital electronics and control systems, the Mu-so Qb packs in much of the original’s greatness but in a much more compact casing. The cube-shaped Qb is perfect for those tighter spots, such as by your bed, in the kitchen or on your desk, where a standard Mu-so simply won’t go.

Spacious, stereo sound
Unlike some rivals, the Mu-so Qb is equipped 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 any old speakers, the Naim Mu-so Qb uses high quality, soft dome tweeters paired with custom mid-range drivers for a smooth and natural sound.

Breathtaking power
Despite its compact case, the Mu-so Qb still delivers a phenomenal 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 (Auxcillary 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 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.

AirPlay, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi - The choice is yours
Whatever you want to connect up, the Mu-so Qb has it covered. If you've got an Apple iOS device you can connect up with AirPlay and stream your music collection straight to the speaker. Also standard is Bluetooth. This works with the vast majority of smartphones and tablets and supports apt-X for enhanced sound quality. The Naim Mu-so Qb also offers UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) compatibility via Wi-Fi or Ethernet to connect up to your home network system. Once connected you can stream music from your PC, Mac or NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive.

Internet radio, Spotify Connect and a great control app
Download the highly developed Naim app on your Apple iOS or Android device and you'll be able to take advantage of the vTuner Internet radio system. Offering thousands of stations from around the world, Internet radio not only offers choice but also the potential for superior sound quality, thanks to the superior codecs available to the radio stations. The Mu-so Qb is also compatible with the hugely popular Spotify Connect.

CD-quality music streaming with Tidal HiFi
With streaming in CD-quality, lossless sound, Tidal HiFi is perhaps the ultimate streaming music service. Now you don't have to choose between the quality of CDs and the convenience of streaming music. With Tidal HiFi you can have them both!

Connect up via USB
If you prefer the certainty of a wired connection, the Mu-so Qb 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 auxcillary analogue inputs, you can boost the sound of your other components, too.

Connect up to five Mu-sos for the ultimate Multiroom experience
Use the Naim app for your phone or tablet and you can play music through up to five Mu-sos or Mu-so Qbs. Play the same song, in beat perfect time, on all speakers or choose different music in different rooms.

The finest design
Just as with its big brother, the Mu-so Qb sets the standard for style, innovation and finish. The main casing is made from an ultra-tough material that is 20% glass-filled polymer. This not only offers excellent rigidity but also great dampening properties, meaning the Mu-so won’t rattle – even when the windows do! The quality acrylic base and aluminium heatsink are typical of Naim in that they provide both style and function. Finally, the touch sensitive interface system is a joy to use and will have you reaching for it over smartphone control whenever possible.

The best of Naim Mu-so, in a compact cube. The Mu-so Qb creates even more opportunities to enjoy class-leading sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely OTT for my kitchen but wonderful I bought the Mu-so Qb to sit on the kitchen table and keep me entertained while preparing veg, etc. It seemed that almost every review I'd read before buying said that the Mu-so Qb was larger than the reviewer had expected; despite knowing that I was still surprised at its size (I've photographed it next to a pint glass to give a sense of scale). It's also heavy, definitely not for carrying from room to room. The setup was gratifyingly quick and easy. I downloaded the Naim app to my mobile, took the Mu-so Qb out of its box, connected gigabit ethernet and power cables, powered-up, opened the app, answered the question about what colour light was showing (white) and, hey presto, setup was complete. I then used the app to specify the distance of the unit from the wall and the internet radio presets; job done. The only other thing I've done is to stand the Mu-so Qb on granite coasters to give a firmer surface than the oak kitchen table on its own for (in my opinion) a tighter base response. I use the Naim app to control the Mu-so Qb, despite the volume control being wonderfully tactile, because it's easier to choose sources, internet radio stations and, when the volume is turned right down, the only way I know how to turn on the 'loudness' bass boost. I only stream stuff to the Mu-so Qb from (HD) internet radio, Mac playlists (ALAC via UPnP), and, if the Mac isn't powered-up, phone playlists (256 kbps AAC via AirPlay 2) so I can't comment on other music sources. I listen to a variety of music, from Albinoni to ZZ Top; the Mu-so Qb can reproduce the delicacy of baroque chamber music, but also has the heft to deal with Rock/R&B (and everything, including Jazz, in between). Of course, the Mu-so Qb doesn't have the stereo separation and soundstage of a decent pair of speakers but it does a wonderful job, nevertheless. I hardly need to trouble the volume control as it effortlessly fills the kitchen (just under 4m x 4m). In conclusion, the Mu-so Qb is a completely OTT solution for the size of my kitchen, but it's wonderful and I now seem to be spending more and more time with my veg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, dodgy WiFi I’ve had the Muso QB for a couple of weeks now, I have to say that it’s very handsome on my kitchen worktop. The sound is excellent at all frequencies bass, mid and high it sounds crystal clear. The stereo isn’t wide at all so if that’s what you’re after this isn’t for you, if a cracking sound in a compact package is, then it’s perfect. You won’t believe that powerful sound is coming from it, it’s unbelievable and doesn’t distort at any volume. The app is about par for the course not perfect but far form rubbish, when I could get it to connect that is. The box would dropout at almost every opportunity and I was going to return it but after researching online forums I found that the fix was to stop the router auto switching the frequency and after that it sorted it out. It only uses the 2.4ghz bandwidth for WiFi and on a product this expensive is pathetic to say the least, and if it hadn’t dropped out and I didn’t have to find a fix, I would have given it 5stars. The user experience of the app and the touch sensitive screen is really good, the radio is good and with only 5 presets is perfect, I only listen to 3 different ones to be fair. So 5 is more than enough. Spotify connect works perfectly Airplay is the same. Bluetooth has only been tried once and from my iPhone it was absolutely rubbish but why pay this much and just use Bluetooth, although the android experience might be different. It’s a quality product and I like the fact it’s from a British company, although the QB is made in China, I would buy another QB It’s sound suits my needs. The staff at the Sheffield store were excellent and offered me a demonstration before I purchased it.will continue to support my local richer Sounds while ever I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for such a small box Bought this a month ago for the kitchen and it fills the room with great sound over all frequencies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUSO QB I bought the Muso QB to replace an old Marantz separate system following the advice of a friend who has the same system. i received some great service in the Weybridge store and after comparing versus the Denon Compact system i purchased the Muso. It has fitted into our property in France very well and the sound is excellent even in a large room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb performance I was a bit worried about getting the Muso as I have been using hi-fi separates for years and thought a single small box could never compete. I was wrong to worry, within minutes of using the Muso I was hooked. Impressive bass and clear mids & treble and it got even better as it run in over a few days. I auditioned the Muso & the Muso QB at Richers Sounds Romford & settled on the QB as it’s portable enough to move around the house. I will even be taking it on holiday with me. For best quality I use lossless files with a wired connection from my phone but even Bluetooth streaming sounds really nice. I think the only negative is the stereo separation is not as good as my separates system but in all other areas it outperforms it especially the bass depth & punch Naim manage to get out of such a small cube. This actually makes it neighbour friendly as it doesn’t need to play loud to sound good & fill the room with sound. Well worth an audition, you will be impressed.
