Naim Audio, a world-renowned British hi-fi manufacturer, is adding support for Apple AirPlay® 2 to its award-winning premium wireless multi-room speaker Mu-so range. Apple AirPlay® 2 enables advanced multi-room functionality and Siri® voice control, with the Mu-so, Mu-so Special Edition and Mu-so Qb receiving the over-the-air update. Naim Audio’s all-in-one system Uniti range, including the Uniti Atom, Uniti Star and Uniti Nova will receive an Apple AirPlay® 2 update later this month.
Drawing on 45 years of expertise and heritage in audio engineering, industrial design and streaming technology, the Mu-so, Mu-so Special Edition and Mu-so Qb combine stunning premium design with powerful best-in-class sound. The introduction of the Mu-so range four years ago meant music fans no longer had to make a compromise between convenience, design and audiophile-grade sound-quality and the Mu-so trio continue to be the top performing wireless speakers on the market.
Support for Apple’s wireless proprietary technology allows the streaming of music – including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube, internet radio and podcasts – from an iPhone®, iPad®, iPod® Touch, Mac computer and Apple TV® to a compatible Naim device. Once the update becomes available, the Naim app will prompt customers to perform an over-the-air update.

Through the Home app, Control Center or using Siri® voice command on an Apple device, Mu-so owners can easily access, play and control their music anywhere in the home. Apple AirPlay® 2’s multi-room capabilities allow music to be played in different rooms around the house. Ask Siri® to play your favourite music or playlist in-sync on all Naim speakers in every room, or just on a Mu-so Qb in the kitchen, or why not stream different songs in different rooms? Play a movie or box set on Apple TV® and you can beam the audio to your Mu-so or Mu-so Qb for a more immersive sound. Apple AirPlay® 2 also features enhanced buffering to improve the audio streaming performances.
Apple AirPlay® 2 system requirements: iPhone®, iPad®, iPod Touch®, Apple TV® Mac computer and Home Pod® must have iOS software version 11.4 or newer.
