Introducing Mu-so 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 here in Salisbury, England.

Combining our 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.

We 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.

Mu-so 2nd Generation is packed full of
game-changing performance, feature and functionality upgrades. Enjoy your music, any way you want.

95% Re-engineered

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.


Upgraded App Control

The updated Naim app allows you to browse by artist, genre, album and more, complete with artwork and extended music information. 


Control volume, light settings, room modes and create playlists. 

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. There are three easy ways to make it multiroom:

1. Combine it with other networked Naim products (including 1st Generation Mu-so and Mu-so Qb) via the updated Naim app
2. Pair it with other AirPlay 2-compatible wireless speakers via the Apple Home app
3. Pair it with other Chromecast devices via groups controlled by the Google Home app.

  • Multiroom with separates

    Naim’s award-winning range of streaming hi-fi separates  - including the latest ND5 XS2, NDX 2 and ND555 network players – provide the ultimate in digital music reproduction. 

  • Customisation

    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.
