Naim Mu-so QB

 

Above those popular conceptions of the wireless speaker lives in a select group of "high-end" models which start at about a grand in the US and continue climbing from there. In these loftier climes reside models you've never heard of, like the Devialet...

The Naim mu-so Qb is impeccably designed and looks every inch a $1,000 speaker. The Qb sounds great for a product of its impossibly compact dimensions. The number of inputs it offers is obscenely good.

Equivalent performance can be had with the Sonos Play:5 for half the price, and other high-end speakers can offer bigger, stereo sound. The app is nowhere as slick, capable or easy to use as Sonos'.

A luxurious wireless speaker with good sound and amazing design in a compact size, but it's not cheap.

Naim Mu-so Qb review: Mu-so's cubic heir is a square deal for wireless music lovers

 

That's despite a price (£895) that was well on the high side for a wireless speaker - rivals such as Sonos and B&W have pitched their approximately comparable offerings at around £400-£500 - and a very large footprint.

It's one compact ; sexy ; cuboid ; Really good audio for the size ; Lots of connectivity options

Undeniably 'premium' pricing ; The big Mu-so's even better

Mu-So Qb review

 

Big sound and stylish looks in a petite package

Stylish looks ; Small form factor ; Full and vibrant sound

Expensive ; Setup can be painful

There's no denying that Naim's Mu-So Qb makes a big impact, but its controls and setup can be frustrating, especially at this price.

Naim Mu-so Qb review: An all-round success

 

When the original Naim Mu-so launched in 2014, it was received with critical acclaim. Although it's a physically large bit of kit, it impressed us so much that it took the Pocket-lint Awards gong for best speaker in 2015.

Smashing design, easy setup, multi-room setup possible, sound quality is outstanding - from bass, through to mids and highs

No separate remote in the box, multi-room app control could be better designed, it's not exactly cheap

Sure, we'd not call the Qb a budget speaker by any means, but its £595 price point is about as low as we thought we'd ever see from the Naim, um, name.

Naim Mu-so Qb

 

The Naim Mu-so Qb is an ultra-high-end wireless speaker. It would be a perfect fit for the Apple Store, with a premium design and big audio quality ambitions.

A wireless speaker that looks the part and has plenty of power for a rowdy house party.

Naim Mu-so Qb review

 

Huge sound and great connectivity from the latest addition to the Mu-so family...

Outstanding build ; Feature-packed ; Big, bold sound ; Decent detail ; Strong rhythmic know-how

Bass a little rich at high volume ; Could have a touch more insight through the midrange

A small speaker with big personality, the Qb combines style, substance and a whole lot of features at a more affordable price

Naim Mu-so Qb review

 

This can-do cube packs a heavyweight hi-fi punch

Top-notch build and design ; Handy size for smaller rooms ; Packed with features ; Big, bold, expressive sound

Bass might be on the rich side for neutral ears

Small, stylish and with a sound that’d make its big brother proud, the Qb is a stunning addition to the Mu-so family.

Naim mu-so Qb compact wireless speaker: Beautiful design, soaring sticker price

 

What comes to mind when you think of the term "wireless speaker"? Is it a $50 Bluetooth speaker? Maybe the $200 Bose SoundLink Mini? Or perhaps something even higher quality like the $500 Sonos Play:5?

The Naim mu-so Qb is impeccably designed and looks every inch a $1,000 speaker. The Qb sounds great for a product of its impossibly compact dimensions. The number of inputs it offers is obscenely good

Equivalent performance can be had with the Sonos Play:5 for half the price, and other high-end speakers can offer bigger, stereo sound. The app is nowhere as slick, capable or easy to use as Sonos
