Beneath its anodised aluminium skin Mu-so is alive with innovation.
At its heart sits an active arrangement of amplifiers inspired by the technology we developed to create the ultimate audio system for Bentley motors.
Six 75 watt digital amplifiers, one for each of the six custom-designed speaker drivers, deliver a total of 450 watts of power and a carefully designed porting system moves large volumes of air with low turbulence for serious bass kick from a small cabinet.
Power means nothing without control however. That’s why Mu-so features a 32-bit digital signal processor capable of millions of calculations per second. It’s the audio brain of the system, running software fine-tuned by our engineers in the listening room to extract every last drop of performance from your music.
There are many elements of design that make Mu-so a unique system.
The wooden speaker cabinet is wrapped in a layer of anodised aluminium to provide a natural, distortion-free sound and the extruded aluminium heat sink maximises thermal performance.
Mu-so also features two patent-pending ideas. The system of illumination around the touch panel control interface took months to perfect and an antenna system which delivers seamless and robust Wi-Fi connectivity without the need for an external aerial.
Mu-so is supplied with a Classic Naim Black speaker grille as standard.
You can add a new dimension of colour to complement your living space and style. Select from Deep Blue, Vibrant Red and Burnt Orange grilles.
