Focal Announce Naim Mu-So For Bentley Special Edition

Along with the announcement of the Radiance, Focal has also revealed a brand new wireless speaker to add to the Bentley collection, The Mu-So.

Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition is a unique design based on the multi-award-winning Mu-so 2nd Generation: a wireless speaker system that offers authentic audio expertise blended with the latest music-streaming technology, exquisite build quality, delightful usability and even the power to transform your TV sound. This edition is exclusively styled with Bentley design touches, including a lacquered wood finish crafted from Ayous – a sustainable African hardwood; copper colour accents; subtly lit base; specially woven speaker grille and the signature diamond pattern surrounding the illuminated control dial. Enjoy on its own or as part of a multi-room system.

This Special Edition is the first-ever Naim Mu-so to feature a wooden finish. It is crafted from Ayous, a sustainable African hardwood, which is then expertly stained and repeatedly
lacquered to give a dramatic, dark finish unique to this system.

The acoustically transparent speaker grille is an exclusive design for this Special Edition. Its
copper-threaded weave tones with the colour accents used throughout the system, which
reference Bentley styling.

Enjoy a world of radio stations and direct streaming from Spotify, Tidal and Qobuz, plus easy playback from all your devices with Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay 2 (including Apple Music), and Chromecast built-in, which delivers multiple services including
Deezer and Google Play Music.
