Naim’s Mu-so Qb Wins Prestigious Red Dot Design Award 2016

We are delighted to announce that Naim has won a Red Dot Award 2016 for Product Design, this time with our Mu-so Qb compact wireless music system. It is the second award for the Mu-so family, with the original Mu-so winning the same award in 2015. It was recognised by the 38 member jury as one of the special few products among 5,214 entries from 57 countries for its quality, innovative power and industrial design, deservedly winning the sought-after Red Dot seal of quality.

Mu-so Qb features five drivers, offset and angled perfectly to create a left-right dispersion asymmetry and 300 watts of amplification in a single, elegant enclosure. Featuring intuitive connectivity, including high-resolution streaming, AirPlay, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth (aptX), internet radio and app control, Mu-so Qb is the all-in-one music system for any room.

Simon Matthews, Naim Audio Director of Design, commented: “The Red Dot Award is very welcome recognition of the many late nights spent by the team at Naim Audio in making our Mu-so Qb compact wireless music system a worthy addition to the Mu-so family. Every aspect of the design has been carefully considered to maximise the use of space and connect the listener completely with their music.”

More about the Red Dot Award

Throughout the world and across different industries, Red Dot is seen as the award for high design quality. The international Red Dot jury bestows the sought-after seal of quality only to those products that stand out clearly from comparable entries thanks to their excellent design.

The Red Dot Award was created by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen and with around 18,000 entries each year is one of the best-respected design competitions in the world. In 2015, Red Dot celebrated its 60th anniversary: it was in 1955 that a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. The sought-after award, the ‘Red Dot’, is the revered international seal of outstanding design quality.
