muso

Description

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.

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.
