"This is the best one-box speaker system right now, making it a must-listen...A superbly implemented all-in-one that combines class-leading functionality with sparkling sound"

 

Tech Radar

"The previous Naim Mu-so was already considered market-leading, but the revamped amplifiers and processors, as well as the HDMI ARC addition, show that this is a company that’s able to stay ahead of the curve."

What Hi-Fi?

“We’re surprised just how much sonic progression the Naim Mu-so 2 brings…just as the best film sequels manage to add something to their franchise, the Mu-so 2nd Generation proves a worthy successor and a fine addition to the Mu-so range.”

Stuff - 5 Stars

"So how’s the upgrade? Well, suffice to say we reckon this is probably the best all-in-one wireless speaker in the world."

Trusted Reviews - Highly Recommended

"In every meaningful respect – dynamism, low-frequency presence, high-end attack, you name it – the Mu-so 2nd Generation  advances on the original Mu-so"

T3 - Best Multi-room Speaker of the Year

"Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation just crushed it. An awesome, thumping wall of sound and reliable, versatile software platform make for the perfect 21st-century music experience"

TechHive

"I came away impressed by its discrete air of sonic luxury, its uncommon ease, openness, and fine detail"

GQ

"In short, there’s now no need to buy a separate soundbar and music system, as the Mu-so can do both and likely better than either you currently own."

Almost Everything Has Changed

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.

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.
