Mu-so 2nd Gen range supports native Qobuz

Naim Audio has added native Qobuz support for its Mu-so 2nd Generation family of wireless speakers.

Users can enable Qobuz via a free OTA firmware update, giving users seamless access to Qobuz streaming services, including true high-resolution music streaming, from within the Naim control app. 

The update was rolled out to all Mu-so QB 2nd Generation units on Monday 15 June, and the Mu-so 2nd Generation users can update their units from today (17 June). 

This update means that high-resolution Qobuz music streaming is natively available across Naim’s full range of latest generation streaming products. The Uniti Atom, Star and Nova systems, plus ND5 XS2, NDX 2 and ND 555 network players received an update back in February of this year. 

Naim users will need a Qobuz subscription to use the service, with 30-day free trials currently available via a link in the Naim control app, which is available for iOS and Android devices.

“It’s great to release another free update to our music streaming family,” said Charlie Henderson, Naim’s managing director. “Naim owners can now seamlessly stream Qobuz’s high-resolution music offering to any or all of a wide range of products, from our entry-level Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation right through to our flagship ND 555 network player.”

David Solomon, chief hi res music evangelist at Qobuz added: “For decades, Naim has represented the best of high-resolution playback, making them a perfect partner for Qobuz hi res download and streaming service. Both companies strive for world-class sound quality and both go the extra mile to ensure that no detail is absent from the music you love.

“The Mu-so 2nd Generation family certainly represent the very best desktop players available, not only with numbers but with real high-end sound quality. The Mu-so range is capable of astonishing performance and can resolve Qobuz 24/192 music files and rival many full-blown systems.”
