EISA Awards 2019 | Mu-so 2nd Generation | Best All-In-One System , Aug 2019

"wide-open, fast, detailed and yet reassuringly weighty, it sets the standard all other integrated systems now have to beat."

Hi-Fi Choice | Mu-so 2nd Generation | Editors Choice, Jul 2019

"This is the best one-box speaker system right now, making it a must-listen...A superbly implemented all-in-one that combines class-leading functionality with sparkling sound"

TechRadar | Mu-so 2nd Generation | 5 Star Review, Jul 2019

"The previous Naim Mu-so was already considered market-leading, but the revamped amplifiers and processors, as well as the HDMI ARC addition, show that this is a company that’s able to stay ahead of the curve."

Stuff | Mu-so 2nd Generation | 5 Star Review, Jun 2019

"It has more rivals to face than the Mu-so ever did - but those B&W, Devialet and B&O alternatives (to name but three) only exist because of the new ground broken by Mu-so. And Mu-so 2 seems more than capable of maintaining its predecessor’s position at the front of the pack."
