Naim Muso Special Edition
Naim Audio set the benchmark for premium wireless and multi-room speakers with the introduction of Muso four years ago. Combining an elegant design with a best-in-class audio performance, Muso continues to be the top performing wireless speaker on the market, offering more music around the home than ever before. Building on the success of the award-winning speaker range Naim is set to introduce a new member of the family - Muso Special Edition.
Sporting a new sophisticated brushed veneer, this limited edition model is exclusive to John Lewis in-store and online from 23rd August. With the Muso's entire metal anodised body covered in the new colour finish, the speaker comes with a matching front grille to fit seamlessly into any modern living space. "This beautiful new finish has been selected as it ideally represents both a 'celebration' of the continuing success of the Muso family, but also because it delivers a unique appearance that oozes sophistication and exclusivity from every last detail. The Muso Special Edition offers a highly desirable and unique aesthetic, appealing to those music lovers who do not settle for second best when it comes to luxury in the home." - Says Simon Matthews, Group Design Director.
Muso's class-leading sound and striking profile is the result of more than 45 years expertise in audio-engineering and industrial design. At the centre of the Muso is the iconic rotary control interface with the rear integrated aluminium heat sink, a major part of the aesthetic. Under the anodised metal skin are six 75 watt amplifiers driving the speaker array, delivering a total of 450 watts of power, while a 32-bit digital signal processor, capable of millions of calculations per second, orchestrates the Muso's finely tuned sonic performance. Connect Muso to a home Wi-Fi network to open up a world of music around the home. Wirelessly stream downloaded music in high-resolution from a PC, Mac or network-attached storage via UPnP or music fans can browse and play millions of songs through popular Spotify, TIDAL and Apple Music streaming services. Listen to favourite broadcasts through Internet Radio while upcoming support for Apple AirPlay 2 allows control via Siri voice commands so playing songs and playlists has never been so effortless.
Muso also seamlessly integrates into a Naim multiroom set-up. A combination of Muso, Muso Qb, Uniti all-in-one players or network streaming products can play the same song in-sync in up to five rooms of your home or play different music in different rooms with control via the Naim app for iOS and Android. Support for Apple AirPlay 2 also allows multi-room functionality and connection to Naim products and compatible third-party speakers. Stream music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac computer and Apple TV to every room, one room or different songs in different rooms of the house. Muso features a host of further connectivity options including high-quality Bluetooth aptX, a USB input for charging and playback of smartphones, tablets and portable music players and a 3.5mm analogue input and a digital input to hook the Muso up to a turntable, TV, CD player, set-top box or games console. Naim Audio Muso Special Edition is available at £995. Info and photos by Naim Audio.
