What Hi-Fi | Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation | Best AirPlay Speakers 2020, Mar 2020
"If you want top quality sound from an AirPlay 2 speaker – and have the budget to stretch – you'll want to be looking at the Naim Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation. Capable of hi-res playback up to 24-bit/384kHz, the new Qb betters its predecessors performance with even greater clarity, precision timing and stunning dynamic range. We love it so much we named it our wireless speakers Product of the Year for 2019."
AV Forum | Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation | Review, Feb 2020
“As a combination of specification, performance and aesthetics, this is an absolute star turn and a product that has to be considered the current Best in Class.”
Expert Reviews | Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation | Best Buy Review, Feb 2020
“Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation artfully channels a gateway from classic hi-fi through to the present day of elegant, effortless music streaming. That it does so with so little compromise –and in such a compact, stylish package – is something for Naim to be very proud of indeed.”
Gear Patrol | Mu-so 2nd Generation & Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation | Review, Jan 2020
"The Mu-so 2 home speaker has more than 10 times the processing power of the original Mu-so, which helps it stream higher-resolution audio (up to 32bit/384kHz) and create an even bigger sound."
Forbes | Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation | Review , Jan 2020
"If you’re looking for a high-end, multi-room wireless speaker that can rival a good system of hi-fi separates – especially if you’re a little tight on space – you can’t do much better than this cubic cutie"
The ambient | Mu-so 2nd Generation & Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation, Dec 2019
"Naim has double the amount of wireless speakers Apple has in its line-up - that’s right, a whole two. But what your admittedly significant outlay buys are the products of an established, even venerable, high-end hi-fi company with more than enough expertise to blow your socks off."
Country & Town House | A Great British Brand 2020, Dec 2019
"However dark the days, people’s love for music never dims and Naim is here to make favourite tracks sound incredible on the best British hi-fi products available."
Q Magazine | Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation | Gadget of the Year, Dec 2019
"...worth the high price for the sonic quality alone."
