THE VERDICT

Though it doesn’t come cheap, Naim’s newly revised Mu-so brings true audiophile sensibilities and surprising wallop to a well thought-out and full-featured wireless speaker.


The original Mu-so wireless music system released in 2014 was a first in the emerging “lifestyle audio” category—a truly high-end, wireless, multiroom speaker from one of the most respected brands on the planet.

Børresen 01 monitor loudspeakers, Aavik U-380 integrated amplifier, Naim CD5XS (as transport), D-TC Supreme Power Box and Power Distribution, Ansuz DTC Supreme cables

By | September 9th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

The all-one-family of Børresen loudspeakers, Aavik electronics, and Ansuz cabling, distributed by Gated HiFi and displayed by Chicago dealer NextLevel HiFi, was having a really rough time of it until their new Aavik U-380 integrated amplifier ($39,000) showed up. It was several days late. RMAF had been chosen for its Global Debut, so everyone was on pins and needles until the arrival of this 300-watt-into-8-ohms, Class-D baby, which includes separate DACs for PCM and DSD, four clocks and four power supplies, separate volume controls for each input, and optional dual phono stages claimed to have “the lowest noise floor on the planet.”

The Aavik U-380 was paired with a Naim CD5XS ($3995) used solely as a transport, Børresen 01 loudspeakers with D-TC Supreme Resonance Control ($32,500), D-TC Supreme Power Box ($14,400) and Supreme Power Distribution ($38,000), and Ansuz DTC Supreme cabling.… Read the full article

Naim Launch Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation

By | August 13th, 2019|Categories: Audiostream|

I’m into science fiction in a big way, so that means that by default I’m a Trekkie – a Star Trek fan for those sci-fi challenged out there – which means that when I first saw Naim’s Mu-so Qb design a few years ago I instantly associated it with the Borg Collective’s ships from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Naim XS3 and SUPERNAIT 3 Launched now with Phono: Why Digital Audiophiles should care

By | July 17th, 2019|Categories: Audiostream|

System synergy. It’s one of the most critical factors in building a high-fidelity kit. I say kit because it is very much like constructing a model – the wrong pieces together (or something missing) and it won’t ever be finished.

The tables turn on Naim’s NAIT XS 3 & SUPERNAIT 3

By | July 10th, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , |

NAIT. Naim Audio Integrated Amplifier. We must journey back to 1983 to locate the original model: a shoebox-sized chassis that could be fed via Naim’s own DIN-socketed line-level inputs or an RCA-socketed MM phono input. Loudspeaker output power was rated at a mere 13wpc but to this day it remains a deceptively punchy performer.

When the V3 NAIT rolled off the production line ten years later, the original’s (and NAIT 2’s) ‘chrome bumper’ look had been swapped out for ‘olive’, the power output nudged to 30wpc and the chassis widened to full-width (but with a lower roof).… Read the full article
