Bentley Created a Speaker System, and It Looks Phenomenal

The venerable luxury automaker is making some serious noise

Look, if your best audio experience happens in your car, things need to change on the home front.

Maybe you’d best bring that power and finesse inside.

The UK-based audio manufacturer Naim and luxury carmaker Bentley just debuted Mu-so and Mu-so qb, two home wireless speaker systems that fuse sonic intelligence and design prowess.

It’s a luxury car experience in your living room.

A solid wooden speaker cabinet wrapped in anodised aluminum, the Mu-so grille is finished in “Portland,” a color transposed from the Bentley car palette; the patterned casework actually matches the speaker grille in the Bentley Bentayga. A Naim for Bentley logo is illuminated when the speaker is turned on.

The Mu-so delivers 450 distortion-free watts of power and can be paired with five Mu-So qb compact speakers, allowing you to either stream the same song simultaneously through your house … or control six different tunes at once.

It’s not their first collaboration: Naim has been overseeing all the in-car audio for Bentleys since 2008. But it’s the first time the companies have taken their collaborative tech and worked its magic indoors.

The Naim for Bentley Mu-so is around $1,700 and the qb goes for $1,100.
