Naim Audio, you probably have never heard of them before but you should know about them now. The company was founded by Julian Vereker who was a racing car driver, entrepreneur and self-taught engineer with a deep passion for music. Spending his spare time listening to and recording his friends playing live in the 1960s, Julian found that playback on his system at home fell woefully short of the experience he craved. So Naim Audio was born and now we have the Mu-so Wood Edition wireless speaker.

Mu-so Wood Edition is dressed in sustainable Ayous hardwood, expertly treated, and lacquered to give the appearance of a Light Oak finish. The iconic Mu-so heatsink also has a new anodized aluminum tint, with the speaker finished by a neutral-toned, woven front grille. Check out the promo video on the company’s YouTube channel below.
Here’s what the company’s press release had to say:
This new Wood finish is an ideal match for lighter-look interiors allowing you to seamlessly enjoy harmonious style and sound throughout your home, from the living room to the kitchen, home office to bedroom.
“Blending class-leading performance and timeless design with a luxurious new finish, Mu-so Wood Edition is the perfect premium audio companion for homes with classic or contemporary interiors,” said Stuart Brown, Naim Product Manager.
