Be summoned by the sound.

Mu-so Qb is the new compact wireless music system from the engineers behind the award-winning Mu-so. Controlled by a powerful audio brain, Mu-so Qb is alive with custom-made features all designed in the Naim audio laboratories in England. It’s a true feat of sound engineering. From the contours of the glass-filled polymer casing to the bass radiators that help create huge low frequencies – every millimetre of space has been used to great effect. Simple to control and easy to connect, Mu-so Qb generates a staggering 300 watts that unmasks your music with a sound that defies size.

Its advanced yet simple to use connectivity includes Airplay, Bluetooth®/aptX®, Spotify Connect®, TIDAL, UPnP™ (access your stored music), Internet Radio, USB, analogue and digital inputs, Apple iOS and Android App for complete control.

You can also combine Mu-so Qb, Mu-so and other Naim streaming products for the ultimate multiroom experience. Simply sync the units to play the same song beat-for-beat in up to five rooms.


Mu-so Qb is a wireless music system alive with innovation.

Every component tailored
One of the biggest design challenges with Mu-so Qb was to configure the individual speakers within the smaller cabinet. To achieve that distinctive Naim sound, our engineers had to interrogate every component and adjust speaker angles by the smallest of fractions. It led us to an arrangement of five drivers, offset and angled perfectly to create a left-right dispersion asymmetry. In this arrangement are two microfibre dome tweeters and two mid drivers, all four driven by 50W amplifiers, with rare earth magnets and copper-capped poles for even greater accuracy. And for low frequencies Naim installed two pistonic passive bass radiators. These work alongside a custom-made woofer that’s driven by a 100W amplifier to create an astonishing bass sound for a system this size. When the speakers and woofer combine, Mu-so Qb amplification can generate an incredible 300 watts.

Controlling the Mu-so Qb sound
At the heart of Mu-so Qb is a 32-bit digital signal processor - the same high-spec component used in the original Mu-so system. Fine-tuned in Naim's listening room, it controls the flow of music information to each speaker, drawing on everything Naim learned from designing the best in-car audio systems from Bentley motors. It also includes two EQ settings, tailoring the best sound quality whether the unit is close to or away from the edge of any room. The end result is a refined audio experience with no distortion, increased speaker accuracy and an expansive sound that makes hairs stand on end.

The Naim control app for iDevices and Android devices puts a world of music at your fingertips.
Unite all of your music in one place with the intuitive Naim control app for iOS and Android devices and put millions of songs at your fingertips. You can scratch the surface or go deeper to explore information on artists, discographies, biographies, reviews, image galleries, similar music and more. The app even includes a simple set up wizard so you’ll be online and listening to more music than ever before in no time.
