Naim Audio Mu-so

 

The pricey Naim Audio Mu-so speaker combines loads of connectivity and powerful sound into a stylish, solid metal package.

Lots of wireless and wired connection options. Powerful, clear sound. Separate remote.

Very expensive. Too big to place in front of an HDTV as a soundbar. Not particularly warm-sounding.

Performance and Conclusions While it's very large for a wireless speaker, the Mu-so is relatively small for a one-piece home theater sound system, and it lacks a separate subwoofer. Despite that, it can put out some impressive power and solid, clear...

Naim Audio Systems Mu-So Wireless Music System

 

Exquisite design and impeccable audio performance justify this soundbar's impressive price tag.

Impeccable audio performance ; Lots of connnectivity options, including AirPlay for multi-room setups ; Luxuriously elegant design

No HDMI ; Expensive

The Mu-so sounds every bit as as beautiful as it looks. Yes, it's pricey at $1500, but its price tag is fully justified by its build quality and audio performance.

Naim Mu-so wireless music system receives TIDAL support

 

It looks like going wireless (including wireless music streaming) is the way to go, and the big thing to do these days. After all, who would want to remain in the previous century by being tethered to a particular device, not to mention that cables...

TIDAL happens to be a global music and entertainment platform which will bring artists and fans together via unique music and content experiences, where this particular platform delivers high fidelity, CD sound quality and high quality video. With...

Naim Audio Mu-So

 

Naim has a distinguished track record making high-end hi-fi components, but Mu-So represents the British brand's first foray into the world of wireless speakers.

Stunning design and construction ; Extensive streaming features ; Outstanding sound quality ; Easy-to-use smartphone app

Slow to skip Spotify tracks ; Remote ; Comparatively expensive – but worth it

Naim Mu-so review: A sonic sensation

 

Hi-fi systems in the traditional sense are a bit of a dying breed. But Naim, a company which makes some incredible (yet eye-wateringly expensive) systems, isn't shying away from the new order. Ok, so we've got no idea what the name is all about, but...

Great industrial design that stands-out, sublime sound quality whatever you listen to, bundles of connectivity and app control

Plasticky remote control, Bluetooth requires re-pairing when toggling between sources, big and heavy so won’t suit all, no HDMI

Ok, so we've got no idea what the name is all about, but that's easily forgivable because the Naim Mu-so is one seriously standout wireless speaker. Sure, its £895 price tag is going to deter its fullest possible audience, but the Mu-so is so good it's...

Naim Mu-so review

 

Plenty of wireless speaker systems do a decent, musical job. But the Naim Mu-so can make a valid claim to be genuine hi-fi

Beautiful build – especially that wonderful, tactile knob ; Sounds great ; Chock full of streaming features

It's expensive ; The sound can thicken up a touch - but only at serious volumes

The first proper ‘hi-fi’ wireless speaker? We certainly think so: looks good, sounds superb.

Naim Audio mu-so review

 

Naim Audio has long been one of the touchstones of British audio industry, an electronics brand founded in the early 70s that earned a fearsome reputation for uncompromising amplifiers, before later expanding into making complete hi-fi systems.

In most respects the Naim mu-so would make the perfect companion to the modern home as a one-stop music centre. It can play sound from phone, tablets, NAS drives and music servers, internet radio, as well as local sources like a telly through its...
