Naim Mu-So 2nd Generation Wireless Music System
Naim Mu-So 2nd Generation
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 Naims experts here in Salisbury, England.
Combining Naim's 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.
Almost Everything Has Changed
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.
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.
Naim 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.

It may look similar outside, but inside Mu-so 2nd Generation, the majority of components have been upgraded to improve performance.
The cabinet design has been re-engineered to create 13% more internal volume, enabling bigger, better bass. Both the cabinet bracing and baffle moulding have been redesigned for improved rigidity, which suppresses and controls vibrations.
The distinctive heat-sink fins are now more compact, while still being ultra-effective, and continuing to feature Naim patented technology that discreetly incorporates the wi-fi antenna.
Upgraded App Control
The updated Naim app allows you to browse by artist, genre, album and more, complete with artwork and extended music information.
Control volume, light settings, room modes and create playlists.
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:
To judge the Mu-so 2 by its cover would be to undermine the progression it brings to the Mu-so line. According to Naim, 95 per cent of the Mu-so 2 is new: drive units, digital signal processing, connectivity and cabinet. Naim has naturally carried its new comprehensive streaming platform from therir acclaimed Atom into the Mu-so 2. Naim has also decided to add a HDMI ARC socket so you can hook the Mu-so 2 up to your TV at the highest and most convenient sound level.
To improve performance, Naim has fitted new drivers – optimised in collaboration with Focal - their sister company. Each driver has been reconsidered: the bass unit has been given a longer voice coil and larger magnet to reduce distortion, while the midrange has a better-damped surround to improve its phase with the cone. The new DSP processing is capable of 13 times as many instructions as the original Mu-so. For the extra cost here, you get a better performance, extra sonic insight, better usability and the inclusion of an HDMI socket.
