Replaced by Mu So Generation 2
Digital System. What is mu-so
muso is Naim Audio’s first wireless music system, designed to transform your music into incredible sonic experiences.
Combining Naim’s expertise in streaming, amplification and loudspeaker technology, muso is the stage your music deserves.
Beneath its anodised aluminium skin mu-so is alive with innovation. At its heart an active arrangement of six digital amplifiers deliver a total of 450 watts of power to six custom-designed speakers.
BASS REFLEX SYSTEM
Two large custom bass drivers are supported by a sophisticated porting system with an outlet at the end of the cabinet. This was carefully designed to move large volumes of air with low turbulence for richly textured, low distortion bass and treble.
The whole mu-so cabinet sits on an illuminated base of high-grade acrylic which provides the foundation for the electronics and speakers to shine.
The mu-so audio brain is a 32-bit digital signal processor with software fine-tuned by our engineers in the listening room.
Two EQ settings tailor sound for close to and away from room boundaries for superb sound quality anywhere in your home.
Silk dome tweeters were chosen through listening tests to replace the traditional metal cones found in many wireless speakers for their benefit to sound quality.
MID – RANGE DRIVERS
Custom mid-range drivers provide crystal clear speech and emotively powerful vocals. Naim Audio found through tests that positioning
them as the outermost driver aided even sound dispersion.
Unite all of your music in one place with the intuitive Naim control app for iOS devices and Android and put millions of songs at your fingertips. You can just scratch the surface or go deeper to explore information on artists, discographies, biographies, reviews, image galleries, similar music and more. The app even includes a simple set up wizard so you’ll be online and listening to more music than ever before in no time.
MATERIALS AND DESIGN muso
There are many elements of design craft that make mu-so a unique system. All are born from a desire for music performance and quality.
An extruded aluminium heat sink maximizes thermal performance. The wooden speaker cabinet, designed for acoustic performance, is wrapped in a layer of high-grade aluminium to provide extra dampening for a distortion free sound.
The volume control is constructed from a ring of solid aluminium which runs the circumference of the touch-panel control interface with its patent-pending system of illumination.
The embedded antenna system is another patent-pending mu-so innovation, providing seamless and robust Wi-Fi connectivity
