Naim Audio has announced native Qobuz support for its Mu-so 2nd Generation family of wireless speakers. Enabled via a free over-the-air firmware upgrade, the integration will enable access to Qobuz streaming services, including true high-resolution music streaming, from within the Naim control app.

The update will be rolled out to all Mu-so Qb 2nd Generation units from now with Mu-so 2nd Generation users being able to update from Wednesday 17th June.

Qobuz offers a comprehensive CD-quality music catalogue with a large selection of albums in true high-resolution studio quality.  Its streaming services are currently available in 12 countries, including the US, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

The Mu-so 2nd Generation family update means high-resolution Qobuz music streaming will be 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. To enjoy Qobuz streaming services, users will need a Qobuz subscription: 30-day free trials are 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. 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” says Charlie Henderson, Naim Managing Director.

“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.” says David Solomon, Chief Hi Res Music Evangelist at Qobuz.
