Review

Every so often a box turns up that just doesn’t fit into any existing category and the first generation of Naim Audio’s Muso was just such a box! When we first clapped eyes on it at the High End Trade Show in Munch a few years ago we were instantly blown away. This was just what we needed but hadn’t realised it until it was unveiled.
It’s tempting to thing of the Muso as just a high quality premium Bluetooth / Network speaker, but this would not be doing it justice in any way. The Muso is in fact a complete HiFi system crammed into a beautifully formed chassis that any house proud individual would be proud to have on show and audiophiles would be delighted to have as a 2nd room system.
There are plenty of Bluetooth speakers out there, there are even a few that also play network music and connect to music services, but there are none that do all that and have the perfect mix of quality, features and beauty of the Muso. It makes sense that if a British brand that’s renowned for producing “World Class HiFi” is going to create a small compact system that they’re not going to go head to head with the mass market… this system always needed to be in a league of its own in terms of both performance and desirability and the success of the Muso to date is testament to the Naim team absolutely nailing it.
This new generation of Muso adds the an HDMI socket with ARC (audio return channel) which also makes it an idea sound source for your smart TV. Looks and sound have also been upgraded yet further making it the undisputed champ of the category that Naim invented.
We’ve not mentioned tech spec etc. here as there are plenty of sources for that, but if you’d like to ask us about any aspect of the Muso2 please get in touch using the Chat function, e-mail or the good old phone… we’re always here to help.
