Naim's Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation, the successor to the Qb, is part of the award-winning Mu-so wireless music system family. It's been re-engineered from the ground up to create the brand's most high-performing compact wireless music system. Combining their 45 years of Hi-Fi expertise with the latest technology, extensive software and hardware upgrades deliver a significantly enhanced performance, whilst the design has evolved to perfectly match its larger sibling, the Mu-so 2nd Generation.
Superior sound quality
Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation has serious British Hi-Fi credentials. At its heart is Naim’s music-streaming platform, developed by 25 engineers over 3 years for superior performance, whether playing your own digital collection, a world of internet radio, or streaming services like Spotify and TIDAL (subscriptions may apply). 300 watts of music power unite with improved speaker drivers, more powerful processing for greater accuracy, and a re-engineered cabinet design that further enhances bass performance.
Class leading features
Connect it to your home network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi to open up a world of music. Stream music in high-resolution via UPnP, or browse millions of songs through Airplay 2 (including Apple Music), Spotify Connect, TIDAL and internet radio. Connect smart devices by Bluetooth, or play music from USB drives by plugging into the USB input.
Powerful enough to fill the room, its relatively compact size also makes it a superb option for spaces such as kitchens and bedrooms. A few simple taps of the Naim app (available on iOS and Android devices),and it can easily join a multiroom set up with the larger Mu-so 2nd Generation, other Naim networked products, or Apple AirPlay 2-compatible wireless speakers.
