Naim Mu-so AirPlay2

Apple AirPlay 2 comes to Naim Mu-so

5 November 2018

Apple AirPlay 2 technology becomes available this week for the Naim Audio Mu-so range, bringing with it highly advanced multi-room audio capabilities and natural voice controls via Apple’s Siri virtual assistant.

If you own a Naim Mu-so or Mu-so Qb you can enable AirPlay 2 functionality by updating its firmware, plus your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV with the latest 11.4 iOS software. Once the update becomes available, the Naim app will prompt customers to perform an over-the-air update.

Easy Multi-room
AirPlay 2 allows you to effortlessly stream music (or podcasts, or YouTube video audio) from your Apple TV, iPhone or iPad to your Naim Mu-so or Mu-so Qb, as well as any other AirPlay 2-enabled speakers (including Apple’s own HomePod speaker) in your home.

You can quickly select as many or as few of the speakers as you want to use in your iOS device’s Control Center, giving you scope to listen in a single room of the house, a group of rooms, or all rooms. Provided they’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network, all AirPlay 2-enabled speakers in your system will play in beat-perfect sync, making for an easy-to-use multi-room setup.

Simply ask Siri
All iOS apps with audio include manual AirPlay 2 controls for playback and volume adjustment, but the new addition of Siri integration makes taking control easier than ever. Thanks to Siri’s advanced voice recognition, Apple Music subscribers can now use natural 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.

Finally, AirPlay 2 introduces enhanced buffering, boosting both the quality and stability of streaming audio. It means compatible products will better avoid skips and drops when streaming from Apple Music or YouTube.

If you already own a Mu-so or Mu-so Qb and an iOS device, make sure to give AirPlay 2 a test drive on your system. Its proof positive that technology can be both highly advanced and dead simple – and it’s available at no extra cost.
