Naim Mu-So Qb in the Test

The Naim Mu-so qb accepts music from almost any source, whether digital or analog. How’s the sound cube in the test?

Fans of the series “spaceship enterprise – the next century” are the Borg identify the new Naim Mu-so immediately as the cube-shaped spaceship, the located in the entire universe with her radio message “we are the Borg, they be assimilated, resistance is futile” lots of friends create. Before the Naim, nobody has to fear, because he does not want to assimilate, he wants to conquer – in our hearts.

We were lucky, Mu-so during the CES 2016 to admire the new qb in Las Vegas. He is ur-Mu-so at first and second glance clearly the little brother of the legendary the MU as series (was awarded this year by AUDIO innovation award). 210 x 218 x 212 mm, the MU-so qb is a fairly compact cube that uses significantly less floor space than its older brother. The Naim perched on a pedestal of plexiglass, which gives an impression of light floating the cube, where he is no lightweight at 5.6 kilograms. Friends purist design and clear lines will love Mu-so the new. But see is nice touch is beautiful.

Let’s do it: everywhere precious materials and processing, the other device from high-endigeren price classes well to face would be. The round Control Panel on the top with the exterior, machined from solid aluminium volume knob, so precise and smooth running, it is a delight to use him. The cooling fins on the back may have been quiet slightly less sharp-edged. So beware: who wants to move the MU-so often, here is actually light injury.

Music pulls the small power pack practically from all sources. Streaming from the NAS via UPnP, Bluetooth with aptX, Web radio from LAN or Wi-FI, a USB stick or MP3 player, and Apple’s AirPlay, digital optical or analog input (3.5 mm jack) – everything is available, everything goes. The tidal and Spotify music services are integrated. Nice addition: owner of a streaming Naim product obtained by tidal instead of 30 days whopping 90 days free trial.

Hearing test

Because we were looking forward to the sound experience, we linked to the qb via Bluetooth Mu-so our iPhone 5 s, which quickly and easily managed. First Dua LIPA was streamed with her pop song “Be The One”, of course in lossless quality. What pumped the little box on bass in the hearing room, was Yes almost a bit too much of a good phenomenally. To make sure we were after with “Fade out lines” by Avener. What happened here in the listening room, was jarring, at least for our diaphragm.

The playback was dynamic and space-filling, but still not really liked the sharp increase in the bass. We brought us the free app by n on the iPhone to get maybe as the bass in the handle. The app was quickly installed, but not necessarily intuitive to use. The MU like remote control can, we had to include him as AirPlay speakers in our Wi-FI. As soon as Smartphone and Mu-so found themselves had, we went in the menu settings. And Lo and behold: in the menu item “Loudness”, a check mark was actually used. As soon as removed, the bass was also somewhat tame and so enjoyable. Who wants to have the sound PA moderately, can make quiet on the loudness control, but that was us too much boom boom.

Conclusion

MU-so without loudness of sounds really good and balanced, the bass response is always still very punchy. Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” is a good out hear what does drummer Nick Mason with the bass drum. The sound is compact, not airy fine, and a wide stereo stage there is no much Dynamics also, but. Even when the offspring with “you’re gonna go far, kid” keeps the little control and plays very dynamically. For design, workmanship and sound which earned qb top marks Mu-so, Naim may still file on the usability of the app.
