Naim's Mu-so range. Digital music done right.

March 02, 2016

Within the world of hifi, there are wireless network streamers and then there are hifi wireless network streamers. The difference may sound subtle but the audio quality is anything but, and Naim’s Mu-so range is unquestionably hifi network streaming.

But what does that even mean? Well, put very simply, it means high resolution streaming and the kind of dynamic sound staging rarely achieved by an all-in-one unit. Sure, there are a plethora of wireless network streamers on the market, all-in-one units that integrate with your home network (internet service provider) or allow you to connect via bluetooth or airplay, etc. But what most of these product will never achieve is high fidelity audio, the kind of thing you get from individual amps, pre’s, and speakers, the kind of thing vinyl/hifi junkies like us specialise in and go gah-gah for.

Why? Because music is something you’re suppose to feel in your toes, something your neighbours should be constantly pissed at you for playing too loud, not something that plays in the background while you doing something else but something that stops you in your tracks, makes you sit down and listen. Just because it’s digital doesn’t mean it has to be flat, muffled, and lifeless. Digital music’s most honourable hallmark is your entire catalogue of tunes a button-press away, but of what value is this if it all sounds dull and boring?

Insert Naim’s Mu-so range: the flagship 450W beast, Mu-so, and its baby brother, the 300W Mu-so Qb. Both of these incredible feats of engineering play practically every digital format available: AirPlay, UPnP™ streaming, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth (aptX), iRadio, iOS and Android app control and multiroom capability. It’ll support Mp3 all the way to 24-bit/192kHz hi-res tracks in WAV, FLAC and AIFF; you name it, Mu-so caters to it. And with a 32-bit digital signal processor capable of millions of calculations per second, the Mu-so range is guaranteed to get the most from your chosen file or format.

We could go on and on about the sound quality of these two beautifully crafted products, but words are only words and don’t do nearly the deserved justice of coming in and having a listen for yourself. So pop down to the shop and ask us to demo one for you. We’ll take any excuse to blast one of these all-in-one beasts till the neighbours complain. If it’s going to be digital music then it needs to be digital done right, and Naim’s Mu-so range is exactly that.

For the last couple of years Melbourne’s Two People, Phoebe Cockburn and Joey Clough, formerly of Snakadaktal, have been teasing us with brooding electronic-pop. The artwork for the last two releases – ‘Something To Talk About’ and ‘I’m Tied, To You’ – suggest a “proper” project is coming, and if their latest release is anything to go by it’ll be something serious.
