Mu-so Qb is the 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. 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. Mu-so Qb delivers a staggering 300 watts of power that unmasks your music with a sound that defies size.
Its 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.
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, engineers had to interrogate every component and adjust speaker angles by the smallest of fractions. It led 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 driven by 50W amplifiers. For low frequencies, Naim has 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.
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. Fine-tuned in Naim’s listening room, it controls the flow of music information to each speaker. The DSP also includes two EQ settings, tailoring the best sound quality whether 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.
