The 2nd Generation
The Premium Wireless Speaker Your Music Deserves
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 our experts in Salisbury, England.
Combining their 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.
Excellence Remastered Almost Everything Has Changed
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.
They have also 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.
Enhanced Feature Set
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 Dial
Mu-so 2 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
Multiroom Music Made Easy With Smart Integration
Mu-so 2nd Generation works brilliantly on its own or as part of a multiroom music set-up.
Mu-so 2nd Generation’s speaker grille has had a style update.
The standard black grille can be easily swapped for one of 3 new colour options – Olive, Terracotta and Peacock – to best suit your taste and décor.
2nd Generation Grilles will be available in the near future
