300 Watts of Power, Brilliant Sound, Multi-Room Capability: Sleek Naim Mu-so Qb Compact Wireless Music System Streams 24-Bit/192kHz, Plays Bluetooth aptX, TIDAL, Spotify, Apple AirPlay, More
Measuring a petite 8.3 x 8.6 x 8.3 inches, touting 300 watts of power, and featuring multi-room capability, the sleek Naim Mu-so Qb is the new champion of compact wireless music systems. Taking many cues from the larger Mu-so, this mini but mighty marvel connects to your home Wi-Fi network and gives you immediate access to Apple AirPlay, Spotify, TIDAL, and Internet radio. Universal Plug 'n' Play allows you to stream music from your computer or network-attached storage in high-resolution 24-bit/192kHz audio. Bluetooth aptX, a USB input, and an analog input further expand your listening options. Want whole-house audio? Done. Mu-so Qb syncs with other Mu-so Qb devices as well as Mu-so to play the same audio in up to five rooms. Control it all from your smartphone via the intuitive Naim app or use the modern touchscreen interface complete with a patent-pending illumination system. Mu-so Qb's most impressive aspect, however, relates to the rich, vibrant, audiophile-caliber sound delivered by the innovative components housed inside its super-compact cabinet.
“In truth, I’ve possibly spent more time just listening to sounds through the Mu-so Qb than I have any high-end audio device I’ve had in the last two years, because it’s just so damn fun and easy to operate. This gets to the absolute core of what music is all about, without costing a fortune! Very highly recommended!”

In Mu-so Qb, five drivers are offset and perfectly angled to create left-right dispersion asymmetry. Two microfiber dome tweeters, two midrange drivers with rare-earth magnets and copper poles, and the combination of two passive bass radiators and a custom-designed woofer fueled by a 100W amplifier produce staggering clarity, depth, and detail. A 32-bit DSP – the same used in the original Mu-so – is here fine-tuned to control the flow of information and yield distortion-free, expansive performance. Mu-so Qb's construction also lends to its exquisite sonic properties. An anodized aluminum lid and heatsink, acrylic base, and glass-reinforced polymer cabinet lend added strength, damping, and stiffness. Whether you want high-res wireless music in your kitchen, den, bedroom, living room – or all of them – Mu-so Qb is ready to surpass all your expectations. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

"...Looking at the Qb for what it does, where it does it, and the price it does it for, the ‘Qb’ in Mu-so Qb clearly stands for ‘Quite Brilliant.' It’s music stripped down of all that pretentious nonsense that good audio can sometimes add, and it’s got that intrinsic fun factor that a good clock radio has, only a lot, lot bigger-sounding."
– Alan Sircom, Hi-Fi+
"It’s a masterclass in timing, and it’s this that really makes the Qb character one to fall in love with. Its bold, upfront sound may well grab your attention, but the punchy precision and rhythmic know-how holds it from there on in."
– What Hi-Fi?, 5-star review
"This is serious, old-school hi-fi – just wireless."
"…A device that has the same functionality as its big brother - making it one of the best specified products in the category - with arguably better aesthetics and a significant chunk of the performance of the Mu-So in a smaller, more affordable box."
