Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition
Bentley and Naim: prestigious brands with almost 200 years of combined expertise. As well as a proud heritage, these 2 companies share core values of engineering excellence; technical innovation and exquisite artisanship of luxury materials – all driven by a passion to create exceptional, soul-stirring experiences.
Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition is a unique design based on the multi-award-winning Mu-so Gen 2: a wireless speaker system that offers authentic audio expertise blended with the latest music-streaming technology, exquisite build quality, delightful usability and even the ability to transform your TV sound. This edition is exclusively styled with Bentley design touches, including a lacquered wood finish, copper colour accents, subtly lit base, a specially woven speaker grille and the signature diamond pattern surrounding the illuminated control dial.
The Mu-so Gen 2 range is the successor to the multiple award-winning, original Mu-so, re-engineered for class-leading performance, functionality and usability by Naim experts in Salisbury, England.
Combining 45 years of hi-fi mastery with the very latest music-streaming technology and premium design quality, this is the ultimate single-box music system range.
Launched 5 years ago, the hugely popular Naim Mu-so won numerous awards and high critical acclaim.
This 2nd generation Mu-so shares the same signature styling. But beneath the premium aluminium casing, it hosts a 95% re-engineered design. The new design upgrades the performance, features and functionality to redefine what is possible from a single-box sound system.
The cabinet design has been re-engineered to create 13% more internal volume, enabling bigger, better bass. Both the cabinet bracing and baffle moulding have been redesigned for improved rigidity, which suppresses and controls vibrations.
The distinctive heat-sink fins are now more compact, while still being ultra-effective, and continuing to feature Naim patented technology that discreetly incorporates the wi-fi antenna.
An all-new intuitive interface has 15 touch sensitive buttons and a bold, illuminated volume dial with a proximity sensor that wakes the display.
DSP – The heart of the Modern Music System
An all-new multicore Digital Signal Processor (DSP) drives higher performance, providing 2000 MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second) compared to the original Mu-so’s single-core, 150MIPS DSP. You’ll hear even more from your music.
Naim engineers have also created a brand new limiter algorithm that keeps each of Mu-so Gen 2’s speaker drivers’ movement under control when at high volume levels. The new limiter, by design; is only active at extreme volume levels, and helps to retain the music’s clarity and increase long term reliability.
Optimised Speaker Drivers
Mu-so Gen 2’s 450 Watts of music power are joined by improved and highly optimised speaker drivers – a joint development project between the Naim and Focal R&D departments.
Focal has been creating benchmark acoustic equipment since 1979, and its expertise has taken speaker-driver precision and performance to new levels.
Music Streaming Flexibility
The Naim Mu-so Gen 2 wireless speaker is based around the brand’s own audio streaming platform. Unique to Naim’s ultra-high-end amplifier products and dedicated network players, the platform grants optimum performance regardless of streaming source. The listener can simply access and enjoy quality internet radio, a personal digital music library or streaming services such as Tidal or Spotify.
Multiroom Music Made Easy
The Mu-so Gen 2 works brilliantly on its own or as part of a multiroom music set-up. There are three easy ways to make it multiroom:
1. Combine it with other networked Naim products (including 1st Generation Mu-so and Mu-so Qb) via the updated Naim APP
2. Pair it with other AirPlay 2-compatible wireless speakers via the Apple Home app
3. Pair it with other Chromecast devices via groups controlled by the Google Home app.
