Naim adds Tidal streaming and multi-room capability to its Award-winning Mu-so

Existing Mu-so owners will get the free firmware v1.3 update from 6th October. And there will also be Tidal support for all Naim's all-in-one Uniti players, network players and streaming preamplifiers with firmware v4.3.

Naim is bringing further enhancements to its Mu-so music streaming system, including a free three-month trial of Tidal, and the ability to link up with other Mu-sos as part of a multi-room system.

The user selects one Mu-so as the multiroom master unit via the Naim app, and it can then stream music to up to four other Mu-so systems simultaneously. This multiroom functionality works over a standard home network via a wired (ethernet) or wi-fi connection. The latest update also supports gapless playback and a new alarm clock feature, as well as Seek2Time to search tracks using the scroll bar on the Naim app.

In addition, the Mu-so gets support for the all-important high-resolution HLS format now used by BBC internet radio stations.

As for Tidal, CD-quality lossless music streaming service, now it's fully integrated into the Naim Mu-so, as well as other Naim streaming products.

Firmware v4.3 will enable native support for Tidal on all Naim's existing all-in-one Uniti systems, network players and streaming preamps. Products supported are the Naim UnitiQute*, UnitiQute 2, NaimUniti*, NaimUniti 2, SuperUniti, NDS, NDX*, ND5 XS, NAC-N272 and NAC-N 172 XS. (*Note: Owners of early generation UnitiQute, Uniti or NDX units will need to upgrade to the 24-bit/192kHz board to take advantage of Tidal streaming).
