with every purchased. While Stocks Last.

Mu-so
Let the voice of Naim take you inside the music. 
Mu-so® is our first wireless music system. Finely tuned by our specialist engineers in England, its powerful audio brain delivers the most exceptional quality in sound, commanding 450 watts of power through six custom-designed speakers to create an experience of music that has to be heard to be believed.

Its advanced yet simple to use connectivity includes AirPlay, UPnP™ streaming, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth (aptX), iRadio, iOS and Android app control and multiroom capability.

Go Deeper
Beneath its anodised aluminium skin Mu-so is alive with innovation. 
At its heart sits an active arrangement of amplifiers inspired by the technology we developed to create the ultimate audio system for Bentley motors.

Six 75 watt digital amplifiers, one for each of the six custom-designed speaker drivers, deliver a total of 450 watts of power and a carefully designed porting system moves large volumes of air with low turbulence for serious bass kick from a small cabinet.

Power means nothing without control however. That’s why Mu-so features a 32-bit digital signal processor capable of millions of calculations per second. It’s the audio brain of the system, running software fine-tuned by our engineers in the listening room to extract every last drop of performance from your music. 

Design Innovation

There are many elements of design that make Mu-so a unique system.

The wooden speaker cabinet is wrapped in a layer of anodised aluminium to provide a natural, distortion-free sound and the extruded aluminium heat sink maximises thermal performance.

Mu-so also features two patent-pending ideas. The system of illumination around the touch panel control interface took months to perfect and an antenna system which delivers seamless and robust Wi-Fi connectivity without the need for an external aerial.

Description:


Privilege was the first CD Player built by Monrio. Launched in 1997, the Privilege was the beginning of an uninterrupted series of CD Player characterized by excellent musicality and an aesthetics almost always innovative and particular. Thanks to the long experience in achieving and testing different circuit solutions in the analogue section and D / A conversion, we were able to achieve a world-class CD Player with excellent musical characteristic and construction; the Top Loader Type 3.

The Top Loader Type 3 was born in 2007, is distinguished by its exclusive and original aesthetics matched to a very good electric characteristics but also by its high cost due to the material used and to its complex construction.

Strengthened by this experience, we wanted to make a CDP of equal musical characteristic - if not higher, because in the meantime we were able to experiment with new technology in both digital and analogue section. - but with more affordable cost by simplifying the mechanical construction..

Solid and elegant, the Top Loader Type 2 CD Player combines aesthetics design with the latest and most advanced in digital technology. Combined with the best digital and a fully differential circuit topology with dual-triode vacuum gain and solid state regulation - located directly on the audio circuit board -, the Top Loader Type 2 is a remarkable performer. Power Supply stage, DAC stage and Output stage are isolated electronically and mechanically from the mechanism via a separate chassis. An aluminium stabilizer centers the disc and provides good vibration absorption and achieves strong clamping force without affecting laser performance. The TOP LOADER Type 2 CD Player is housed in a custom built extruded aluminium case and includes a strong base assembly that ensure the maximum stability to the mechanical part. The massive aluminium case permit a lowest resonance across the full system The chassis rests on four stainless steel spikes fitted with aluminium pads designed to decouple the unit from the rest of the system. Digital-to-Analogue stage consists of two Sigma/Delta, 24 bit/192kHz converter. Chosen after careful comparison between the best DAC on the market and after extensive listening tests. Power supply is made up from 10 separate power supplyís feeding the mechanism, micro controller, display, clock circuit, DAC digital and analogue section and output stage. It consist of two parts design - one dedicated to the reading mechanism, servo digital and user control and the other for DAC and output stage amplifiers - with individual power transformers and complete independent lines power.


Analogue output stage uses two 12AU7 triodes, the audio stage features high-voltage regulation using high-voltage transistors coupled to a massive power supply. There are two physically separate printed circuit board for the servo and digital circuits (motor drivers etc.) and for the DAC and output stage. The TOP LOADER Type 2 has a generously rated toroidal transformer with separate windings for the high-voltage, filament, DAC digital and analogue power supply. Jitter-reducing benefits of the I2S bus - which transports the audio and clock data separately instead of merging them, as is done with both AES/EBU and S/PDIF standards. It uses a single master clock for the transport and digital processor section. Balanced analogue output is via a pair of XLR jacks, and single-ended output is from RCAs. Digital output is from coaxial on RCA jacks.

Selection of the highest quality components throughout the digital-to-analogue chain, and superior component placement and chassis design help render as full and distortion free the signal output as possible.

Description:


Why Pay More: The Critics believe the Metrum Octave is so good that its competition is not in its price range but rather in the £5000 to £10000 price range. †6Moon review. or Hifi Critic or TNT audio


We love the sound of vinyl. Its organic and sublime but it comes with caveats. It needs an expensive turntable and arm, careful setup, regular maintenance and regular expensive replacement cartridges. Now we have an alternative, a digital convertor with all the qualities and sound of vinyl without the cost and maintenance of one - NOS MINI DAC "Octave"


We wanted to design a DAC which would not be based on the regular AKM, Burr Brown, TI, Crystal and Wolfson chips, which are ubiquitous in consumer audio. Instead we wanted an ultra high-speed part such as you'd find in industrial applications. After many years of experimentation we finally identified an extremely fast chip that's useable for 16 or 24-bit audio but handles sampling rates up to 15 Megahertz. Glue logic, or a great understanding of digital audio, was required to match this chip to the standard audio formats. Due to the very low glitch energy of our resistor ladder network, no digital filter or oversampling was required.


Our machines are deliberately without frills. Paralleling four industrial DACs per channel with integral voltage outputs improves low-level information and noise floor for digital data via the receiver chip. Because our DAC chips are relatively expensive and usually only seen in fast data acquisition systems for industrial use, we kept functionality and cosmetics simple. We avoided multiple i/o ports and a hefty chassis to maintain instead an attractive price. One obvious advantage of our high-speed chips is that they exhibit excellent impulse response without pre/post ringing so common in today's oversampling converters. To avoid mutual interference between digital and analog data a six-layer printed circuit board is used.


After developing the dac we asked reviewers for feedback because they have experience with 'standard' (use run of the mill chipsets previously mentioned) audio converters across many price points. Its been reported that the Octave which sells for a little over £700 performs to a level of dacs costing £5000 and upwards. †

The Octave is a 2 box system, one box contains the DAC and the other the PSU (power-supply). A separate heavy filtered 15 VA powersupply is used for both 115V AC or †230 V AC. The †power from the toroidal transformer is rectified in the dac and smoothed by 26 capacitors with an equivalent capacity of 12.000uF.


The sound is natural, stress-free and communicates the musicians' intention directly to you. This is what can be achieved through a non-oversampling DAC. The feel of this sound is of an analogue reproduction.
