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

Naim went all-out in redesigning its flagship Mu-So connected Hi-Fi speaker. What was already an impressive speaker, becomes extraordinary in its second incarnation.
Sound & Vision
Naim’s newly revised Mu-so brings true audiophile sensibilities and surprising wallop to a well thought-out and full-featured wireless speaker.
There is a special kind of musicality and transparency and authority that the best audiophile components bring—it’s that magical thing that happens when all the pieces come together to make an amplifier or speaker or whatever “high end.” The Mu-so 2’s got that in spades
This speaker sounds exquisite, and it can handle any nearly any format you can think of from just about any source you can imagine: online, offline, digital, or analog. This is a great music system whether you operate it solo or as part of a multi-room audio system. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
The Naim Audio Mu-so 2nd Generation is a pricey all-in-home home audio solution, but it’s supremely capable, incredibly flexible, and it sounds like heaven.
A superb-sounding, fully-featured wireless speaker that justifies its considerable expense
