Naim Mu-so 2nd Gen Family Gets Qobuz Integration Update

Naim Audio today has announced native Qobuz support for its Mu-so 2nd Generation family of wireless speakers.

Naim's Mu-so 2nd Generation which includes the compact Mu-so Qb, as well as the Applause Award-winning Mu-so all-in-one, will see seamless Qobuz integration land by way of a free over-the-air firmware upgrade. This will hand the units true high-resolution music streaming - from within the Naim control app. The update will be rolled out to all Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation units from today, Monday 15th June, with Mu-so 2nd Generation users being able to update from Wednesday 17th June.

This latest update means high-resolution Qobuz music streaming is natively available across Naim's full range of latest-generation streaming products; the Uniti Atom, Star and Nova systems, plus ND5 XS2, NDX 2 and ND 555 network players received an update back in February.

Naturally, to enjoy Qobuz streaming services, you will need a Qobuz subscription. If you want to try before you commit, 30-day free trials are available via a link in the Naim control app, which is available for iOS and Android devices.

Charlie Henderson, Naim Managing Director, told StereoNET:

It's great to release another free update to our music-streaming family. Naim owners can now seamlessly stream Qobuz's high-resolution music offering to any or all of a wide range of products, from our entry-level Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation right through to our flagship ND 555 network player.

David Solomon, Chief Hi-Res Music Evangelist at Qobuz, adds:

For decades, Naim has represented the best of high-resolution playback, making them a perfect partner for Qobuz Hi-Res download and streaming service.  Both companies strive for world-class sound quality, and both go the extra mile to ensure that no detail is absent from the music you love. The Mu-so 2nd Generation family certainly represent the very best desktop players available, not only with numbers but with real high-end sound quality. The Mu-so range is capable of astonishing performance and can resolve Qobuz 24/192 music files and rival many full-blown systems.
