Naim Audio Mu-so Qb Speaker
When Apple start stocking your speaker, you know you’re probably onto a winner. Which is exactly what’s happened to the Mu-so Qb by Naim Music, a compact wireless music system that’s been made by the same engineers who built award-winning original Mu-so.
Naim Audio are a high-end audio developer from right here in the UK – Salisbury to exact. Their new Mu-so Qb speaker is controlled by a powerful audio brain, with custom-made features to create a true feat of sound engineering.
From the contours of the glass-filled polymer casing to the bass radiators that help create huge low frequencies – every millimetre of this Mu-so has been designed to get the best out of a compact speaker. And to Naim, the sound is everything.
To achieve the best sound possible, Naim engineers have interrogated every component and have adjusted speaker angles by the smallest of fractions. The result is an arrangement of five drivers; two microfibre dome tweeters and two mid drivers, all driven by 50W amps; two pistonic passive bass radiators; and a custom-made woofer that’s driven by a 100W amp. What this means in layman’s terms is an incredible 300 watts of noise.
The wireless Mu-so Qb connects to all your devices in essentially anyway you like, including Airplay, Bluetooth/aptX, Spotify Connect, TIDAL, UPnP, and USB. With home sound systems becoming all the more sophisticated, it’s no surprise that you can also combine up to five Mu-so Qbs or Mu-sos via the Naim app across your house/office.
Additionally features include an alarm clock which can be enabled via the Naim app, access to thousands of internet radio stations, and the ability to don your speaker in a different coloured grille, with the choice of Deep Blue, Vibrant Red and Burnt Orange to choose from.
The Naim Audio Mu-so Qb speaker is now available from a select few retailers including in stores and online at John Lewis and Apple. Priced at around £595, head over to the Naim Audio Website for more specs and details.
