Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation - The Premium Wireless Speaker Your Music Deserves

Mu-so 2nd Generation is the successor to the multiple award-winning Mu-so wireless music system, re-engineered for class-leading performance, functionality and usability by Naim’s experts at their HQ in Salisbury, England.

Combining 45 years of hi-fi mastery with the very latest music-streaming technology and premium design quality, this is the ultimate single-box system you and your music deserve. From up to 32bit high-resolution streaming to multiroom music to HDMI TV sound, you’ve never heard it so good from an all-in-one wireless system.

The Naim Streaming Platform

At the heart of Mu-so 2nd Generation is Naim’s music-streaming platform, developed by 25 engineers over 3 years to offer the very best performance whether playing your own digital music collection, a world of Internet radio, or music streaming services such as TIDAL and Spotify. This acclaimed innovation is uniquely found in Naim music-streaming products, such as its Uniti range and dedicated network players, including the £20,000 flagship ND 555.

DSP - The heart of the System

The all-new multicore Digital Signal Processor (DSP) drives higher performance, providing 2000 MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second) compared to the original Mu-so’s single-core, 150MIPS DSP. You can also hear even more from your music.

Naim have also created a brand new limiter algorithm that keeps each of Mu-so 2nd Generation’s speaker drivers’ movement under control when at high volume levels. The new limiter, by design; is only active at extreme volume levels, and helps to retain the music’s clarity and increase long term reliability.

New Intuitive Control Dial

The latest control dial is beautifully crafted and supremely intuitive with 15 touch sensitive buttons and a bold, illuminated volume dial with a proximity sensor that wakes the display when your hand approaches.

95% Re-engineered

Mu-so 2nd Generation features a premium aluminium casing, in a new burnished grey finish. It may look similar on the outside, but inside Mu-so 2nd Generation, the majority of components have been upgraded to improve performance.

The cabinet design has been re-engineered to create 13% more internal volume, enabling bigger, better bass. Both the cabinet bracing and baffle moulding have been redesigned for improved rigidity, which suppresses and controls vibrations.

The distinctive heat-sink fins are now more compact, while still being ultra-effective, and continuing to feature Naim patented technology that discreetly incorporates the Wi-Fi antenna.

Multiroom Music Made Easy With Smart Integration

Mu-so 2nd Generation works brilliantly on its own or as part of a multiroom music set-up. There are three easy ways to make it multiroom:

  1. Combine it with other networked Naim products (including 1st Generation Mu-so and Mu-so Qb) via the updated Naim app

The Naim combines excellent features with a brilliant interface (that can be substituted for an even better one if you wish). It’s well made, nice to look at and fairly unfussy about placement. With the basics in place, it proceeds to offer a level of performance that is simply outstanding. Not content with delivering on the promise of a great all-in-one music system, Naim has gone and delivered something that will put the frighteners up many companies making soundbars too. The Mu-So 2nd Generation doesn’t reinvent the wheel created by its predecessor but instead makes it better in every regard. The result is an unquestionable Best Buy.
A superb-sounding, fully-featured wireless speaker that justifies its considerable expense
If you have the money to buy this, I recommend you do so. It sounds fantastic, looks cool, has connectivity that's rock solid. Maybe £1,299 will turn out to be a cost bridge too far and the Mu-so second generation will be less of a smash hit than the first one, but that's for Naim to worry about. As a human being with eyes and ears, I'd say the Mu-so 2 is a stunningly good wireless speaker that justifies its asking price in spades.
