Naim Audio’s Group Design Director, Simon Matthews, said: ‘Champagne finishing has been selected as it ideally represents both a celebration of the continuing success of the Mu-so family but also because it delivers a unique appearance that oozes sophistication and exclusivity. It offers a highly desirable and unique aesthetic that will appeal to those music lovers who do not settle for second best when it comes to luxury in the home.’
The Naim Mu-so has six internal amplifiers that drive a speaker array comprised of two elliptical bass drivers, two circular midrange drivers and two soft-dome tweeters, all of which are front-firing.… Read the full article
Although Naim has been making audio gear since 1973, it is not your typical stodgy old-school hi-fi firm. Instead, it is one of those fleet-footed audio manufacturers whose products have continued to evolve over the years. Sure, it still makes separate preamps and power amplifiers as well as DACs (how quaint), but Naim’s latest components are one-box units far less demanding of room acreage. The Uniti Nova ($7495) is Naim’s highest-priced and most feature-laden single-box audio system. Add loudspeakers, and your stereo is almost complete.… Read the full article
Naim review cliche #1: to headline the article with the pun-heavy “What’s in a Naim?”. It’s as tired as David Byrne features topped with “Still Making Sense”; a well-worn wink at the ex-Talking Head frontman’s most well-known eighties release (Stop Making Sense).
I’m as guilty as the next guy, headlining my coverage of the Naim Uniti Atom and Nova’s 2016 US debut with – you guessed it – “What’s in a Naim?”. Never again (is what I swore the time before).… Read the full article
Mainstreamers visiting their local big Apple or high-end department store might see Naim’s Mu-so as a luxury (mains-powered) Bluetooth speaker. As one might expect at €1199, it stomps all over its smaller battery-powered brethren. The KEF Muo (US$350) is one of the best of the portable Bluetooth bunch but sat next to the Naim long box the Muo is outclassed in every respect. The Mu-so delivers oodles of dynamic slam to sound larger and more impactful than its diminutive rival.
The Mu-so also sounds larger than its letterbox profile might suggest.… Read the full article

UK-based Naim Audio has been famous for its amplification since its first products back in the early 1970s. Three decades later Naim was also quick to recognise the future of file-based and streaming music, and most recently it has enjoyed great success with its Mu-so and Mu-so Qb wireless speakers, acclaimed for both their sound and their styling.… Read the full article
Fergus Henderson—the chef who’s the reason the hip restaurant around the corner from you serves bone marrow, sweetbreads, and other animal bits—opens his seminal cookbook Nose to Tail Eating: A Kind of British Cooking, with a terse description of lunch at Sweetings. When you order the smoked eel at the bar of this London seafood institution, the waiter behind the counter yells to a runner, who then hands the eel over your shoulder to the waiter, who places it under the counter, and then in front of you “as if they had it all along”.… Read the full article
