"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. Tested at £595.

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 (Auxiliary Bass Radiators). What this means 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 auxiliary 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.

NAIM MU-SO QB is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought two QBs - one returned under warranty Bought two QBs - the first one exhibited some strange behaviour which, after speaking to Naim technical support, needs to be returned under warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound quality Great compact sound system. Very easy to set-up and streaming music was very straightforward. The Naim app is not the easiest to use but blue-tooth direct to the machine works a treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, great build quality I chose the Qb for my bedroom as I was tired of tinny-sounding bluetooth speakers. It is a big improvement from them, and I only wish I had more free time to enjoy it! Easy to set up, the only glitch I had was having to restart my router to get Airplay to work properly. I rang the Naim customer support who were very friendly and easy to reach (compared to most companies' support lines). The only drawback -- of course -- not cheap, especially since I think the product was introduced at £595 (Brexit premium?). But as they say...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound A+, Sound A+, Sound A+ Wow, exceeded expectation - I'll finally retire my arcam alpha! Deep, exciting sound with plenty of volume. Bass is perfectly controlled - the soundtrack for Arrival blew us away. Seems to suite most types of music, favourite plays so far Opeth, Tim Hecker, Laura Marling and Bonobo. Design and functionality are suburb especially airplay as the unit intergrates with iTunes and iPads - even turns out to be a useful 'sound bar'. We even like the app which works fine. The Muso does everything with aplomb - highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After work my Qb distresses me with its incredible sound. The MU-SO QB, is a dream, it plays everything I throw at it without a hitch with a warm and inviting sound.I was lucky to get an open box unit that had been demoed for 15 minutes, it was in immaculate condition. The unit was reduced from £550 to £507. A further 10% was knocked off due to me being on the VIP list and then a further £7 for my continued business at the Prestwich store. £450 was the final price is an absolute steal. The only slight issue is that the unit can be a little tricky to connect to your wifi and you don't get a remote, instead having to rely on your phone or the controls on top of the unit. I must also mention that the staff at Prestwich are fantastic especially Kirt who always looks after me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Speaker This Naim speaker may only be small however it packs a punch delivering good quality sound and looks great too. It was easy set and so easy to play all my favourite tracks off my ipad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Sound! We are absolutely blown away by the quality of sound of the Mu-So Qb. After extensive researching of other more well known wireless providers we settled on the Mu-So, far superior, great sound from the smaller unit.. Good luck to our neighbours!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great, looks great. After having some teething issues for the first couple of hours trying to get my Mu-So to connect to my wifi (it seemed happy to try to connect to every single network in range except mine), now it's up and running I'm very pleased indeed. It looks like a work of art and the build quality is excellent. The volume dial is a tactile delight. If you're in two minds about getting one, have a go with the volume dial and I think it might make up your mind. As you would expect of any Naim product, it sounds great. The Mu-So QB doesn't ship with a remote control, so you're initially likely to need to depend on the associated app for your remote control needs. I was a little worried about this as the app has received some very mixed reviews. However, my experience with it after the first ten days has been completely positive. It's been reliable and pretty straightforward to use. If the cost isn't a deal breaker for you, then I highly recommend it.
