The Naim Mu-so 2 may be a a few years old now, but it is still one of the best wireless speakers you can buy in 2024. It's also so much more than that: part wireless speaker, part streaming system, the closest description is probably all-in-one hi-fi system, offering incredible sound quality but with the convenience of being a one-box solution.

However, all of this is reflected in its price tag, which now sits around £900/$1300 without any discounts (having launched at £1300/$1800). It's worth it, of course, but if your budget can't stretch to that and you're hoping to pick up a deal in the summer sales, then this is the page you'll want to bookmark.

The Mu-so 2 might look almost identical to the original Mu-so, but under the hood it's had a complete refresh. We're talking new drive units, new digital signal processing, extra connectivity and even a new cabinet.

Naim's streaming platform is on board, giving it UPnP streaming of hi-res music up to PCM 32-bit/384kHz, direct streaming from Spotify Connect and Tidal, Apple AirPlay 2, internet radio and Google Chromecast, which brings Deezer, Qobuz and YouTube Music to the table. Wi-fi stability has been boosted, though a wired ethernet connection is still a safer bet, and Bluetooth comes as standard for playing music wirelessly straight from your phone.

In terms of physical connections, you've got USB, optical and 3.5mm inputs. There's also an HDMI ARC output, so you can enhance the audio from your TV and control it through just one remote control.

But if you'd rather use Naim's smartphone app, we wouldn't blame you – it's a joy to use, simply laid out and responsive to your every action. We wish all proprietary control apps were like this.

You'll be glad to hear it performs extremely well too. The new drivers really come into their own, delivering a consummate performance across the board that fully earns it its five-star review. If you can snag this wireless wonder at a discount, you've done very well indeed.

    Note the £49.99 from John Lewis deal, is just for a spare speaker grill. Rather careless of What HiFi.
