Reviews

AppleInsider | Mu-so 2nd Generation | 5/5 Review , Jan 2020 – “We’ve been floored by the performance of the Mu-So 2, especially when it comes to Apple users and AirPlay 2.”

Gear Patrol | Mu-so 2nd Generation & Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation | Review, Jan 2020 – “The Mu-so 2 home speaker has more than 10 times the processing power of the original Mu-so, which helps it stream higher-resolution audio (up to 32bit/384kHz) and create an even bigger sound.

The ambient | Mu-so 2nd Generation & Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation, Dec 2019 – “Naim has double the amount of wireless speakers Apple has in its line-up – that’s right, a whole two. But what your admittedly significant outlay buys are the products of an established, even venerable, high-end hi-fi company with more than enough expertise to blow your socks off.”

Country & Town House | A Great British Brand 2020, Dec 2019 – “However dark the days, people’s love for music never dims and Naim is here to make favourite tracks sound incredible on the best British hi-fi products available.

HI-FI World | Mu-so 2nd Generation | 5 Globes , Oct 2019 – “As one-box systems go the Mu-So 2 is hard to beat. It combines superb construction with an easy control system and a sound that belies its dimensions.

Gramophone | Mu-so 2nd Generation | Review , Sep 2019 – “Not so much updated as completely reinvented, despite the similar looks, the new version of Naim’s all-in-one system is an even more attractive buy

TechHive | Mu-so 2nd Generation | Editors Choice , Sep 2019 – “This speaker sounds exquisite, and it can handle any nearly any format you can think of from just about any source you can imagine: online, offline, digital, or analog. This is a great music system whether you operate it solo or as part of a multi-room audio system. I recommend it wholeheartedly.”

EISA Awards 2019 | Mu-so 2nd Generation | Best All-In-One System , Aug 2019 – “wide-open, fast, detailed and yet reassuringly weighty, it sets the standard all other integrated systems now have to beat.

 

Features

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 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.

We 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.

Enhanced Feature Set

Mu-so 2nd Generation is packed full of game-changing performance, feature and functionality upgrades. Enjoy your music, any way you want.

  • Optimised Speaker Drivers – Mu-so 2nd Generation’s 450 Watts of music power are joined by improved and highly optimised speaker drivers – a joint development project between Naim and Focal R&D departments.
    Focal has been creating benchmark acoustic equipment since 1979, and its expertise has taken speaker-driver precision and performance to new levels.
  • Discover The New Intuitive Dial – The new intuitive interface has 15 touch sensitive buttons and a bold, illuminated volume dial with a proximity sensor that wakes the display. The Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation is an energetic, precise powerhouse, and looks damn good while doing it.
  • 95% Re-engineered – Premium aluminium casing, in a new burnished grey finish. It may look similar 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.
  • Upgraded App Control – The updated Naim app allows you to browse by artist, genre, album and more, complete with artwork and extended music information.
  • Customisation – Mu-so 2nd Generation’s speaker grille has had a style update. The standard black grille can be easily swapped for one of 3 new colour options – Olive, Terracotta and Peacock – to best suit your taste and décor.
