Mu-so adds Apple’s AirPlay 2

The second generation of Apple’s streaming technology is been added to Naim’s Mu-so range

Naim has announced Apple AirPlay 2 technology for the Mu-so range. Owners 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 today for the ‘Qb’ and Wednesday 14th November for the Mu-so.

AirPlay 2’s multi-room audio functionality can drastically change the way Mu-so owners experience home audio, streaming music (or podcasts or YouTube video audio from your Apple TV, iPhone or iPad to a Naim Mu-so/Mu-so Qb, as well as any other AirPlay 2-enabled speakers in the home.

You can quickly select as many or as few of the speakers as they want to use in your iOS device’s Control Center, giving scope to listen in a single room of the house, a group of rooms or all rooms.

All iOS apps with audio include manual AirPlay 2 controls for playback and volume adjustment but the new addition of Siri integration means that voice recognition is added.

Apple Music subscribers can now use spoken commands to request a track, album, artist or playlist, play or pause playback, skip track or adjust the volume.

When used in conjunction with a multi-room AirPlay 2 system, Siri can be asked to play different songs in different rooms or groups of rooms or the same track across the entire system.

    Yes, but what of the sound quality? I guess if Naim has given the nod it should be good, but where is a comparison to ethernet connections? This is really an announcement, not a review. I know what I think, but I am not a reviewer.

      It’s a news item – as you can see at the top of the screen. It’s not a review.
