Naim Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation review

 

What Hi-Fi? Awards 2019. Just a few tweaks make for a superb second version

Open, detailed and expressive ; Loads of streaming options ; Multi-room ready

Nothing at this price

The Mu-so Qb retains an inherently likeable presentation, but has matured over the three years since its first generation.

Naim Mu-so 2 review

 

Classic wireless speaker gets a boost in performance and price

All-inclusive feature list ; Neat all-in-one design ; Rich, rhythmic, insightful sound ; Agreeable app

Costs much more than the last generation model

A superb-sounding, fully-featured wireless speaker that justifies its considerable expense

Naim Mu-so 2 review: forget Sonos, Mu-so 2nd gen is the best wireless speaker you can buy

 

Naim takes everything that was great about the Mu-so and makes it even better

Great sound ; Stable, easy to use app ; Supports all the streaming services 99% of people use

Sheer girth might pose positioning issues in some rooms

Naim Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation review: One sensational home speaker

 

The second-gen hard-wired home speaker brings updated control wheel, new drivers and an included control. And a larger price. Is it worth it?

Beautiful industrial-esque design ; Updated Command Dial is great to use ; Sensational sound quality that's clean and prominent across the frequency range ; Now includes a remote control

Not massively different from original model ; Price hike over original ; Full-size Mu-so (first gen) might be worth paying a little extra to own ; Bass not sub-sonic levels and can't compare to full-size Mu-so

Far classier than the glut of current smart speakers, more audio adept than the Sonos line-up, the second-gen Qb might have a silly name, but its silly-good sound quality sells it. The deft Command Dial control and heaps of connectivity options form...

Naim Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation review

 

Naim corners the cube-shaped speaker market

Gorgeous design ; Great for compact spaces ; Slick, revamped interface ; Powerful, room-filling sound

Pricier than the (already steep) original Qb ; Additional speaker grilles cost extra

The best compact wireless speaker around just got better

Naim Mu-so 2 review: Sensational sonic sequel

 

The Mu-so sequel is here, upgrading (and up-pricing) one of the best all-in-one systems we've ever heard. So what's new and why should you buy one?

Immense sound output - with more bass and dynamic volume than first-gen model ; Supports to 32-bit 384kHz for audiophile quality ; Eye-catching and distinctive design ; Lots of connectivity (incl. Spotify Connect / Tidal / Google Cast / AirPlay 2) ;...

It's very expensive (far more than original model) ; No on-screen menu system for HDMI use ; Included remote control is basic ; Big and heavy so won't suit all ; Lacks sound presets for soundbar scenarios

Although pricey, we think the Mu-so 2 is worth every penny. The sound quality from this industrial box is second to none, although if you already own the original then the second-gen's addition of an HDMI port isn't a huge attraction. Really and truly...

Naim Mu-so 2 review

 

“Bigger, louder, more expensive - it just doesn't look it”

Sounds the full 450 watts-worth ; Beautifully engineered, built and finished ; Decent control app ; Loads of functionality

Same-again design seems a missed opportunity ; Big price hike over Mu-so

Meet the new boss - not as similar to the old boss as it might look

Naim Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation review: Big sound, little box

 

Naim's wireless speaker packs an astonishingly big sound into a compact cube – the 2nd Generation Qb is a big step forward

More refined sound than previous model ; Deep bass and impressive mid-range slam ; Goes surprisingly loud

The (already high) price has gone up

It’s this versatility that permits the Mu-so 2nd Generation to artfully channel 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...

Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation

 

When Naim launched its original Mu-so back in 2014 (HFC 391), the sleek one-box design exuded mass-market appeal and took the Salisbury-based concern from purveyor of specialist hi-fi that worked best with its own components to a company with a product...

Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation Review

 

Naim has revised the Mu-so with some useful new features and some aesthetic tweaks - is this still the all-in-one to beat?

Sounds brilliant ; Comprehensive specification ; Well made and good looking

Bass can be slightly dominant ; No aptX Bluetooth ; Quite wide
