Mu-so 2nd Generation - Almost Everything Has Changed
Mu-so 2nd Generation - Almost Everything Has Changed
The Premium Speaker Wireless Music System Your Music Deserves, the Mu-so 2nd Generation is the successor to the multiple award-winning Mu-so wireless music system, re-engineered for class-leading performance, functionality and usability by experts in Salisbury, England. Combining 45 years of hi-fi mastery with the very latest music-streaming technology and premium design quality, this is the ultimate single-box system you and your music deserve. 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.
Amazing sound on its own, it can also become an awesome part of a multi-room music setup: at the touch of a button, you can group with other Naim players and systems, connect any AirPlay 2 speaker or devices with a built-in Chromecast. Explore and control your music via the Naim App, one of the finest and most versatile apps available. Or simply use the tactile illuminated dial or the supplied remote control. Or try Google Assistant and Apple Siri voice control support. There is even Room Compensation, to ensure your Mu-so Wood Edition sounds at its best regardless of its placement.
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. Naim 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.
Mu-so 2nd Generation is packed full of game-changing performance, feature and functionality upgrades. Enjoy your music, any way you want.
Optimised Speaker Drivers
Mu-so 2nd Generation’s 450 Watts of music power are joined by improved and highly optimised speaker drivers – a joint development project between Naim and Focal R&D departments. Focal has been creating benchmark acoustic equipment since 1979, and its expertise has taken speaker-driver precision and performance to new levels.
The new intuitive interface has 15 touch sensitive buttons and a bold, illuminated volume dial with a proximity sensor that wakes the display.
Premium aluminium casing, in a new burnished grey finish. It may look similar outside, but inside Mu-so 2nd Generation, the majority of components have been upgraded to improve performance. The cabinet design has been re-engineered to create 13% more internal volume, enabling bigger, better bass. Both the cabinet bracing and baffle moulding have been redesigned for improved rigidity, which suppresses and controls vibrations. The distinctive heat-sink fins are now more compact, while still being ultra-effective, and continuing to feature Naim patented technology that discreetly incorporates the wi-fi antenna.
The updated Naim app allows you to browse by artist, genre, album and more, complete with artwork and extended music information. Control volume, light settings, room modes and create playlists.
Mu-so 2nd Generation works brilliantly on its own or as part of a multiroom music set-up. There are three easy ways to make it multiroom:
