When a traditional high-end audio company dips its toe in the lifestyle market you can usually hear the collective chunter of a thousand hi-fi purists, but when Naim launched Mu-so, they silenced the critics with a close to perfect one-box system combining superb sound, hi-res streaming and looks. Now with the new Mu-so Qb, Naim has gone one better, creating a compact wireless system that defies its dimensions. Inside the impeccably profiled, ultra-rigid polymer casing you’ll find a refined 300W, five-speaker system that beggars belief. Combine that with aptX Bluetooth, Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay, Tidal, internet radio connectivity and multiroom playback, you’ll not be left wanting. A selection of optional grilles are available in Burnt Orange, Vibrant Red and Deep Blue, but Brogue would plump for the traditional black in this case.
