Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition - Wireless Streaming Speaker
Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition is a unique design based on the multi-Award-winning Mu-so 2nd Generation: 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 new Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition is the first ever Naim Mu-so wireless speaker system to feature a wooden finish. Crafted from Ayous, a sustainable African hardwood, the cabinet top is expertly stained then repeatedly lacquered to create a uniquely dark and dramatic patina. Other standout features include a new copper tint to the striking anodised aluminium heatsink, an exclusive smoked plinth, copper-threaded speaker grille and the signature Bentley lattice design surrounding the tactile volume dial, which illuminates to your touch.
Enhanced Feature Set
Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition uses Naim’s unique music-streaming platform, delivering peerless performance that scales from wireless speakers up to reference-level players. Stream from a world of music services, including Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz, Apple Music and more, or direct from your devices via Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay or Chromecast. There’s also UPnP support for ultra-high resolution (up to 32bit/384kHz) streaming of your own music collection, plus Mu-so is Roon Ready. An HDMI ARC input makes it easy to enjoy better sound from your favourite TV programmes, films and games.
Optimised Speaker Drivers
Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition packs 450 Watts of music power, with both the muscle and sophistication to deliver incredible performance via its array of speaker drivers – clever designs that sit neatly behind the acoustically transparent woven grilles. A joint development project between Naim and Focal saw further optimisation of these speaker drivers, using patented Focal acoustic expertise. As the system’s many awards attest, you’ve never heard it so good from a single-box system.
Multiroom Music Made Easy With Smart Integration
The powerful Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition sounds superb on its own, and sublime as part of a multi-room music set-up: group with other Naim players and systems at the touch of a button, any AirPlay 2 speaker or with Chromecast built-in devices. Explore and control your music via the Naim App, the tactile illuminated dial or the supplied remote control. Or try Google Assistant and Apple Siri voice control support. There is even Room Compensation, to ensure your Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition sounds at its best wherever you want it to entertain you.
High-performance speaker drivers
The Mu-so 2nd Generation features six custom-designed built-in speakers for full, accurately detailed sound. It has two silk dome tweeters for clear highs, two dedicated drivers for articulate midrange, and two oval bass drivers in a ported enclosure for clean, robust lows.
Each speaker is powered by its own 75-watt Class D amplifier, ensuring minimal cross-interference and finely detailed sound. And with 450 watts total system power, that sound can easily fill even large rooms without distortion.
Compatible with Apple AirPlay 2
Built-in Apple AirPlay 2 technology lets you stream audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies. And with the Naim app on your Apple portable, you can use Rovi to discover new music and artists based on those you already like.
Google Chromecast built-in
The Mu-so 2nd Generation has Google Chromecast built-in. That means you can wirelessly join it to other Chromecast built-in speakers on your Wi-Fi network to create a multi-room wireless audio system. With the Google Home app on your smartphone or tablet, you can call up playlists and access streaming services such as Spotify Premium, TIDAL, Pandora®, Google Play Music, Tunein, and iHeartRadio.
The Mu-so 2nd Generation has an elegant anodized aluminum casing with extruded heat sings to keep the system running cool. Its fully redesigned cabinet features rigid bracing to eliminate sound-muddying vibrations.
The top-mounted touch-sensitive dial and buttons provide an extraordinary amount of control. It's easy to adjust volume, or play, pause and skip tracks. You can also cycle through input sources, directly access favorite presets, create a group of zones with other Naim products, and more.
Roon-compatible for serious music lovers
The Mu-so 2nd Generation is also compatible with Roon, a subscription digital music player for your smartphone, tablet, or computer. It gives you multi-room audio playback for all your Chromecast-compatible devices and more. Roon accesses your digital music collection from your iTunes library or NAS drive. It also works with your TIDAL subscription. Roon lets you do deep dives into your music, showing artist bios, photos, reviews, and lyrics. Roon can also suggest other artists and songs based on your selections, making it easy to discover new music you'll enjoy.
