PROS

  • The Mu-so Qb has solid construction with top quality materials
  • There is virtually no distortion.
  • Control the Mu-so Qb with a built-in touch-screen interface and connect with Bluetooth and optical data inputs.

CONS

  • The bass runs a little heavy at high volume.
  • It could use more detail through the midrange.
  • It's expensive, but less so that the original Mu-so.
Naim has added a compact 300-watt wireless music cube--the Mu-so Qb--to its popular Mu-so line. The diminutive speaker is packed with five drivers driven by four 50-watt angled amplifiers and one 100-watt amplifier for accurate sound with good stereo imaging. This finely built speaker supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Apple AirPlay to offer hi-res streaming, as well as USB, optical, and analog wired connectivity for all your devices. You can sync up to five other Naim streaming audio devices for a multi-room experience. The 32-bit DSP, lifted from Naim's Bentley auto system, offers a clean sound with virtually no distortion. Use the touch-screen interface or the iOS or Android Naim app for full control over your music.

My personal highlight is the volume wheel. It’s so smooth that it feels more like a classy dimmer switch in an apartment I definitely can't afford. The message is clear: this isn’t just audio tech; the Naim Mu-so Qb is as much a piece of design as it is a speaker.

Coming back down to earth, and looking at the Qb for what it does, where it does it, and the price it does it for, the ‘Qb’ in Mu-so Qb clearly stands for ‘Quite brilliant’. It’s music stripped down of all that pretentious nonsense that good audio can sometimes add, and it’s got that intrinsic fun factor that a good clock radio has, only a lot, lot bigger sounding.

I really love the Mu-so Qb and think it’s the ideal sound system for a bedroom or small lounge. If I have any criticism, it’s the absence of a headphone socket or the ability to stream audio to Bluetooth headphones.

Combining the same attention to detail, and the same audio heritage as its progenitor, the new Mu-so Qb is packing a serious amount of audio power into an impressively small, cuboid chassis.
