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 the Uniti range and dedicated network players, including the £20,000 flagship ND 555.

Continuing its high-performance credentials, Mu-so 2nd Generation’s 450 Watts of music power are joined by all-new speaker drivers - optimised in conjunction with Focal, the acoustic specialist celebrating its 40th anniversary, and Naim’s Vervent Audio associate; more than 10 times more processing power for even greater musical accuracy, and a re-engineered cabinet design to further enhance bass delivery.

Stream music in high-resolution quality (up to 32bit/384kHz) via UPnP, or browse millions of songs through AirPlay2 (including Apple Music), Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Chromecast built-in and Internet radio. Upgraded Wi-Fi connectivity promises a slicker streaming experience, while Ethernet remains an option if you prefer things hard-wired. You can also connect devices wirelessly via Bluetooth. Mu-so 2nd Generation’s USB input, meanwhile, supports music playback from USB drives. Other Mu-so 2nd Generation enhancements include the addition of HDMI ARC, so you can easily connect your TV and experience audiophile sound quality from your favourite television programmes, films, and games.

Luxury Design
Mu-so 2nd Generation evolves the iconic styling of its predecessor, adding a compelling new touch control panel ringed by an illuminated dial with a proximity sensor: it lights up in welcome as your hand approaches it. Easily access key playback controls, your favourite playlists and radio stations, Spotify resume, multi-room functionality and more from this tactile new interface.

The system has a premium aluminium casing, in a new burnished grey finish, fronted by a new style of speaker grille - supplied in black as standard, but also available in Terracotta, Olive or Peacock colourways.

Multi-room and App Control
Mu-so 2nd Generation works brilliantly on its own or as part of a multi-room music set-up. There are three easy ways to make it multi-room: combine it with other networked Naim products (including 1st Generation Mu-so and Mu-so Qb) via the updated Naim app; with other AirPlay 2 compatible wireless speakers via the Apple Home app; or with other Chromecast devices via groups controlled by the Google Home app.

Available for iOS and Android devices, the updated Naim app allows you to browse by artist, genre, album and more, complete with artwork and extended music information. You can also control volume, light settings, room modes, and create playlists. As a further option, Mu-so 2nd Generation is Roon Ready, too.
