Naim Audio launched its premium wireless and multi-room speaker concept, the Mu-so, four years ago. Combining an elegant design with a high-class audio performance, Mu-so can now add a touch more style with a Special Edition Champagne Finish.
Sporting a new brushed Pure Champagne veneer, this limited-edition model is exclusive to John Lewis in-store and online initially, but will be available to selected retail channels following this initial period from October 4.
With the Mu-so’s entire metal anodised body covered in the new colour finish, the speaker comes with a matching front grille.
“This beautiful new finish has been selected as it ideally represents both a ‘celebration’ of the continuing success of the Mu-so family, but also because it delivers a unique appearance that oozes sophistication and exclusivity from every last detail,” Says Simon Matthews, group design director. “The Champagne Mu-so special offers a highly desirable and unique aesthetic, appealing to those music lovers who do not settle for second best when it comes to luxury in the home.”
At the centre of the Mu-so is it’s rotary control interface with the rear integrated aluminium heat sink, a major part of the aesthetic. Under the anodised metal skin are six 75W amplifiers driving the speaker array, delivering a total of 450W of power, while a 32-bit digital signal processor, capable of millions of calculations per second, orchestrates the Mu-so’s sonic performance.
Connect Mu-so to a home Wi-Fi network, and users can open up a world of music around the home. Wirelessly stream downloaded music in high-resolution from a PC, Mac or network-attached storage via UPnP (Universal Plug ‘n’ Play) or music fans can browse and play millions of songs through Spotify, TIDAL and Apple Music streaming services.
Mu-so also integrate into a Naim multi-room set-up. A combination of Mu-so, Mu-so Qb, Uniti all-in-one players or network streaming products can play the same song in-sync in up to five rooms or play different music in different rooms with control via the Naim app for iOS and Android.
Support for Apple AirPlay 2 also allows multi-room functionality and connection to Naim products and compatible third-party speakers. Stream music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac computer and Apple TV to every room, one room or different songs in different rooms of the house.
Mu-so also features Bluetooth aptX, a USB input for charging and playback of smartphones, tablets and portable music players and a 3.5mm analogue input and a digital input to hook the Mu-so up to a turntable, TV, CD player, set-top box or games console.
