Naim Mu-So Wireless Music System Manufacturer Refurbished - £499 at Peter Tyson Audio Visual

I see this has dropped even more. Great price!


Mu-so is Naim's first wireless music system. Finely tuned by their specialist engineers in England, its powerful audio brain delivers the most exceptional quality in sound, commanding 450 watts of power through six custom-designed speakers to create an experience of music that has to be heard to be believed.


Its advanced yet simple to use connectivity includes AirPlay, UPnP™ streaming, Spotify Connect, Tidal, Bluetooth (aptX), iRadio, iOS and Android app control and multiroom capability.

At its heart sits an active arrangement of amplifiers inspired by the technology we developed to create the ultimate audio system for Bentley motors.

Six 75 watt digital amplifiers, one for each of the six custom-designed speaker drivers, deliver a total of 450 watts of power and a carefully designed porting system moves large volumes of air with low turbulence for serious bass kick from a small cabinet.

Power means nothing without control however. That’s why mu-so features a 32-bit digital signal processor capable of millions of calculations per second. It’s the audio brain of the system, running software fine-tuned by our engineers in the listening room to extract every last drop of performance from your music.

There are many elements of design that make mu-so a unique system.

The wooden speaker cabinet is wrapped in a layer of anodised aluminium to provide a natural, distortion-free sound and the extruded aluminium heat sink maximises thermal performance. Mu-so also features two patent-pending ideas. The system of illumination around the touch panel control interface took months to perfect and an antenna system which delivers seamless and robust Wi-Fi connectivity without the need for an external aerial.

Naim Mu-So Key Features:

  • UPnP™ (Universal Plug ‘n’ Play)
  • AirPlay
  • Bluetooth
  • Internet Radio
  • Multiroom Streaming
  • USB
  • Digital Input (Optical)
  • Spotify Connect
  • Supports Tidal

Tried it for 2 weeks and sent it back. I loved it, but it was no good if you wanted it at lower levels. Just no way to control the bass.
They really are the Naim in overpriced speakers

Did you turn the loudness setting off, as it is on by default.

Tried everything.. just not enough settings to tinker with. I could have probably have lived with it. But unfortunately with the folks , and they are 77/78

Wonder if people realise this can and should be set up specifically for your room. I.e acoustic calibration
On a sidenote, in my experience this company offers first class customer service!

Does it have any built-in calibration function other than the proximity to rear wall setting? I have read that it doesn't even have tone controls.

You are right. I think the second one does but this old style room placement settings for some tonal balance.
Remember hearing one of these in John Lewis and it was superb!
What's better, this, or a sonos subwoofer with 2 x play 1?
I would go for a stereo system any day. Doesn't matter how good the Mu-So is, the speakears are simply not far apart enough to create a good stereo effect. We have a faily large kitchen and a pair of Ones fills it nicely. We used to have a single unit before and separating the sound into widely spaced left and right speakers makes a world of difference.

Here's an alternative to your idea of a pair of Ones and a Sub: with a pair of Fives you could easily get away without a Sub. It really boils down to what you can accommodate more easily. Smaller speakers with a Sub or larger speakers and no Sub.

Ah k thanks for the reply. I've already got a pair of play ones though. I haven't got a grand for a pair of play 5s.

I think I'll look for a second hand sonos sub..they seem to be holding their money well though

Use a player like power amp before you junk a product because of user error.

It’s got nothing to do with user error. It doesn’t have enough settings . End of. And I’ve got equipment I’d class a lot higher end than this. So don’t tarnish me with one brush.

Hey if you wanna spend 3x the amount on a naim over any other brand, (i don't like sonos or bose they're also overpriced and get away with bad quality because of thier brand) for 10% better sound then you go for it. But its not a deal if you don't have excessive disposable income.

Hi muckspreader1 I'll hopefully be buying the Naim Muso QB in November. Do you have any tips for me? I can see from your reply above, that you really rate it. I'm so looking forward to streaming my music from Tidal, my sub is for Tidal Masters. Cheers!
