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.
