Naim has announced that Apple AirPlay 2 technology is imminent for the Mu-so range, bringing with it advanced multi-room audio capabilities and natural voice controls via Apple’s Siri virtual assistant.

Owners of the Naim Mu-so and Mu-so Qb can enable AirPlay 2 functionality by updating their devices firmware upon release. Once the update becomes available, the Naim app will prompt customers to perform an over-the-air update. Users will need to have their compatible Apple devices running on IOS 11.4 or above. The update will be available later today for the Mu-so Qb and Wednesday 14th November for the Mu-so.

AirPlay 2 enables a Naim system to be the focal point of an existing multi-room set up, stream to multiple AirPlay 2 devices and control Mu-so through the Apple Home app whilst a larger streaming buffer for reduced dropouts in areas with poor internet consistency.

All iOS apps with audio include manual AirPlay 2 controls for playback and volume adjustment, but the new addition of Siri integration makes taking control easier. Thanks to Siri’s advanced voice recognition, Apple Music subscribers can now use natural spoken commands to request a track, album, artist or playlist, play or pause playback, skip track or adjust the volume.
