Naim Announces New Addition to Mu-so Range
Naim have been producing the finest quality HiFi component for over 40 years. Building upon the success of their Mu-so series, released in 2014, the Mu-so QB is the new compact wireless music box, or 'cube', from Naim.
Since the very early days, England’s Naim, have ignored trends in HiFi design and manufacturing and trusted their own sense of what matters most in music playback. The Mu-so QB is no exception. It's more compact than its big brother, but equally impressive. Mu-so QB is the result of continued research and development and engineering breakthroughs by Naim's engineers.
Launched at the recent CES in Las Vegas, Mu-so QB astounded listeners with the depth and breadth of the sound from the small, yet elegant enclosure.
Chris Murphy, Naim's Australian Importer, told StereoNET:
With Mu-so Qb, we use the same principles that helped form the original Mu-so: no compromise on materials, sound quality or features. Mu-so Qb shares the same design DNA as Mu-so, all intuitively crafted into a truly compact cabinet, ideal for any living space. It is remarkably compact, but with 300 watts the sound is never restricted by size.
Recognising that integration with our connective lifestyles is important to consumers today, Mu-so QB delivers with its advanced, yet simple to use connectivity includes Airplay, Bluetooth®/aptX®, Spotify Connect®, TIDAL, UPnP™ (access your stored music), Internet Radio, USB, analogue and digital inputs, with Apple iOS and Android Apps for complete control.
For those fans of Naim with existing Mu-so or streaming products, Mu-so QB can be combined with them creating a true multi-room audio experience.
Why compromise sound quality for the convenience of a simple audio solution? Naim's engineers refined Mu-so QB, the end result being an arrangement of five drivers, offset and angled perfectly to create a left-right sound dispersion.
Two microfibre dome tweeters and two mid drivers, all driven by four 50W amplifiers, with rare earth magnets and copper-capped poles are utilised to ensure greater accuracy. Low frequencies are reproduced thanks to two pistonic passive bass radiators. These work alongside a custom-made woofer that’s driven by a 100W amplifier to create an astonishing bass sound for a system this size.
Just like the Mu-so, the QB can be tailored to your decor thanks to a range of multi-colour interchangeable grilles, available as optional extras.
Naim Mu-so QB will be available in March for $1299 RRP.
Naim is distributed in Australia by N.A Distributors.
