Naim for Bentley Mu-so

A Sound Partnership.

In celebration of our longstanding partnership with fellow British heritage company Bentley Motors, we are very proud to introduce the new special edition Naim for Bentley Mu-so range of wireless music systems.

With a striking new design, including delicately patterned aluminium skin and a knurled volume control reminiscent of classic Bentley styling, the new Naim for Bentley Mu-so and Mu-so Qb are packed with all the features any music lover could demand. Just like the original award-winning Mu-so wireless music systems they feature native TIDAL and Spotify, AirPlay, UPnPTM (high-res streaming) and Bluetooth aptX connections.

The Naim for Bentley editions are now available online from the Bentley Collection or through authorised Bentley dealers.

At its heart the Naim for Bentley Mu-so is an active arrangement of amplifiers inspired by the technology we developed for Bentley Motors. These drive our custom-designed speakers to offer a staggering sound that defies size – the Naim for Bentley Mu-so Qb delivers 300 watts while Mu-so packs 450 watts of incredible sound.

However, power means nothing without control. That’s why the Naim for Bentley Mu-so features a 32-bit digital signal processor capable of millions of calculations per second. It’s the audio brain of the system, controlling software that’s been fine-tuned by engineers in our listening room. It means that every last drop of performance is extracted from your music.

Classic Design

Designers from Bentley’s in-house team worked closely with Naim Audio’s Design Director, Simon Matthews, to create the unique systems that reflect the duality of classic British engineering matched with cutting edge digital audio technology.

With a striking new design, the Naim for Bentley Mu-so features a bespoke metalwork pattern based upon the Bentayga’s Naim for Bentley loudspeaker grille. The rotary control interface features Bentley’s signature knurling, while the speaker grille cover matches the hue of Bentley’s Portland hide. Even the colour of the anodised aluminium heat sink is unique to the Bentley Collection, and a discreet Naim for Bentley logo is engraved on the acrylic base. There is no doubt that these new systems are objects of beauty and grace as well as Naim standard audio performance.
