You get what you pay for with Naim Mu-So QB. It offers a distinct premium design that cannot be found anywhere else. It is a small cube-shaped speaker with a three-sided fabric grille around its body. This grill makes its look very classy and soft. The grille is replaceable and available in several other colors like burnt orange and dark blue. This grille can be removed to see the sound drivers underneath. The bottom of the speaker is made up of a polymer glass bar and has a Naim logo on it. This logo lights up in different colors to give it an elegant look. The top of the speaker has a smooth aluminum finish with a large radial dial at the center. This dial acts as volume control and has touch-sensitive controls on it. These touch-sensitive controls can be used to Pause/Play and switch between different input modes. At the back of the speaker, a heat sink is installed which blends in with the speaker’s design. Different input ports like USB, Aux jack & LAN port are all located on the back under the heat sink’s grille. A power socket is also located at the back. It is fair to say that it is a good-looking speaker and always enhances the style of the room where it is put in.
Remarkable Sound Quality
Naim Mu-So QB offers great audio quality which is to be expected from Naim products. The audio is clear with no disturbance and has a good balance of highs and lows. The mid-range sounds are also great and blend together perfectly to provide you an enriched music experience. All of this is not a coincidence but due to its amazingly advanced engineering. When the top fabric grille is removed you can see the setup of different drivers within the speaker. It has two tweeters directed at different angles which allows coverage for high-frequency sounds. Two mid-range drivers and a woofer at the bottom work together with the tweeters to produce well-rounded sounds. Two radiators are also located at the sides to give extra depth to the bass. The volume also gets very loud which is remarkable for a speaker of such a small size. Overall, the sounds are rich, have a balance of different ranges and the instrument separation in songs is very distinct.
Naim Mu-So QB offers a very wide range of input options. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, auxiliary, UPnP, etc. you name it and the Mu-So QB has it. Most of the time it uses Wi-Fi technology to stream music through different streaming platforms like Spotify, Tidal, RoonReady, etc. The Bluetooth technology comes in handy if want to play something that is not available on these services. Moreover, you can connect anything with an aux output to source it to the Mu-So QB and play through it. It also supports USB and UPnP input which can be useful at times. All of these digital and analog inputs make the Mu-So QB a very versatile speaker.

My experience with the Naim Mu-So QB has been pretty great. I have had no problem with it since the beginning. It allows me to connect through many different sources and has great sound quality. Moreover, it looks very attractive and is very easy to use. The dial on the top and the app makes it very easy to stream music and use all of its features. One of the things that I like about it is the bass it has for its small size. I like songs with bass-heavy effects and beat drop and the Mu-So QB does a brilliant job in producing those effects. The only thing you might want to consider is the price of this speaker. But if you have the money for it, this should be your number one choice. It is a premium speaker and will not disappoint you with its performance.
