Naim Mu-so Bentley Special Edition
Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition
An Exceptional Wireless Speaker Celebrating a True Partnership
Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition is a unique design based on the multi-Award-winning Mu-so 2nd Generation: a wireless speaker system that offers authentic audio expertise blended with the latest music-streaming technology, exquisite build quality, delightful usability and even the ability to transform your TV sound. This edition is exclusively styled with Bentley design touches, including a lacquered wood finish, copper colour accents, subtly lit base, a specially woven speaker grille and the signature diamond pattern surrounding the illuminated control dial.
The new Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition is the first ever Naim Mu-so wireless speaker system to feature a wooden finish. Crafted from Ayous, a sustainable African hardwood, the cabinet top is expertly stained then repeatedly lacquered to create a uniquely dark and dramatic patina. Other standout features include a new copper tint to the striking anodised aluminium heatsink, an exclusive smoked plinth, copper-threaded speaker grille and the signature Bentley lattice design surrounding the tactile volume dial, which illuminates to your touch.
