From up to 32bit high-resolution streaming to multiroom music to HDMI TV sound; you’ve never heard it so good from an all-in-one wireless system.

"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. This acclaimed innovation is uniquely found in Naim music-streaming products, such as its Uniti range and dedicated network players, including the £20,000 flagship ND 555.

DSP - The heart of the System

The all-new multicore Digital Signal Processor (DSP) drives higher performance, providing 2000 MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second) compared to the original Mu-so’s single-core, 150MIPS DSP. You can also hear even more from your music.

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. The new limiter, by design; is only active at extreme volume levels, and helps to retain the music’s clarity and increase long term reliability.

Stereopluss Norway | Mu-so 2nd Generation | Specially recommended, Jun 2019
"The short version is that this is the best wireless speaker you can buy at the moment. The longer one is that it is impressive how much musical joy and enthusiasm this unit provides. Mu-so 2nd Generation is an overwhelming evidence that quality sound can be delivered by compact systems."
What Hi-Fi? | Mu-so 2nd Generation | 5 Star Review, Jun 2019
“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 | Mu-so 2nd Generation | 5 Star Review, Jun 2019
"It has more rivals to face than the Mu-so ever did - but those B&W, Devialet and B&O alternatives (to name but three) only exist because of the new ground broken by Mu-so. And Mu-so 2 seems more than capable of maintaining its predecessor’s position at the front of the pack."

"In every meaningful respect – dynamism, low-frequency presence, high-end attack, you name it – the Mu-so 2 advances on the original Mu-so"
Mu-so 2nd Generation features in The Stuff Hot Five, Jun 2019
"So how’s the upgrade? Well, suffice to say we reckon this is probably the best all-in-one wireless speaker in the world. The first Mu-so had nothing to truly compete with, being in an entire league of its own, but now there are plenty of high-end rivals vying for your dollars and it’s fair to say that Naim has stepped up its game as a result."
Mail Online | Mu-so 2nd Generation | 5 Star Review, Jun 2019
"The new Naim Mu-So is BOOMING marvellous"..."For this money, you’d struggle to find anything that sounds better or hits harder. And it’s still (very slightly) cheaper than a top-end iPhone."
