Review - Naim Mu-So QB - Wireless Multiroom Speaker By CNet
U S reviewer CNet reviews the Naim Mu-So Qb in the context of rival wireless speakers such as the $500 Sonos Play:5 and more expensive models such as the Devialet Phantom ($1,990), the Raumfeld Stereo L ($2,400) and even the Mu-So Qb’s bigger brother the original Naim Mu-So ($1,499), the B&W Zeppelin Wireless also gets a mention too. Overall it’s not 5 stars this time for the Mu-So Qb as CNet award just 7.6 out of 10. The reasons for this non maximum stellar performance can be seen in the CNet bad points below :-

■ CNet see the strong points for the Naim Mu-So Qb as -

impeccably designed and looks every inch a $1,000 speaker. The Qb sounds great for a product of its impossibly compact dimensions. The number of inputs it offers is obscenely good.

■ The Bad though are :-

Equivalent performance can be had with the Sonos Play:5 for half the price, and other high-end speakers can offer bigger, stereo sound. The app is nowhere as slick, capable or easy to use as Sonos'.

CNet’s initial bottom line on the Naim Mu-So Qb is :- “A luxurious wireless speaker with good sound and amazing design in a compact size, but it's not cheap”

They go on further to summarise the Naim Mu-So Qb wireless speaker with :-

While you could easily argue that you're better off buying an amp and speakers, this would be missing the point of speakers like these. With a slightly lower price and peppier performance, the Qb is seemingly the one to beat out of the two Naim products.

The little Naim Mu-So QB offers stunning looks, thoughtful design and uncluttered setup. While it's not as slick as some competitors, and there are a lot of them, it offers enough chops to appeal to high-end shoppers who prioritize compact size and sleek design.
