@Richard.Dane The online reference manual for the Musos seems to be out of date. I was struggling to put the Muso2 into stand-by via the rotary control. From the manual there appears to be a touch Stand-by symbol which is the same as on my Muso 1. It doesn’t in fact appear on the rotary control and the quick start guide that came with the Muso2 explains that you have to hold down the play/pause symbol. The diagrams in the reference manual showing the rotary control don’t match those in the Quick Start guide. I think I downloaded the manual directly from the Naim site so I don’t think I got hold of an out-of-date one. Apologies if I have misunderstood or this is already registered.
As far as I can tell, I can play iTunes files via ApplePlay to the Muso2 or the QB1 but not to both simultaneously. If I play iRadio on the Muso2 and press the multi-room symbol the radio then does connect to the QB, so I presume I have the connections set up correctly.
If I were to start a Qobuz subscription would I be able to play the stream simultaneously to both Musos?
If I were to rip CDs to a Core would the files play simultaneously to both Musos?
If the answer to 3 and 4 is yes, is this because UPnP is being used rather than ApplePlay?
I think by just having the QB I have not yet acquired more than a very basic understanding of streaming!
1st gen Musos don’t support Qobuz, but they do support AirPlay so you can use that to play from the Qobuz app, and to multiroom it.
You can also play Qobuz from the aNaim app to your Mk2 Muso, and then you can use Naim multiroom to stream it to the Mk1 Muso.
The Core will stream simultaneously to both Musos, either in Multiroom mode, or independently if you are using them as two separate devices playing different music at the same time.
Thanks, Richard, and sorry for wasting your time - I was looking at the first gen manual. However, I really don’t understand how I got to that as the manuals for the two gens are clearly differentiated on the Naim website. My Muso 2 is new so I would have selected that manual given the option. Clearly an error on my part anyhow.
Anyhow, I have discovered the answer to my question 2. Although it doesn’t seem possible to do so via the Naim Muso controls or app, it is possible to connect to both Musos simultaneously via iTunes/Music on my MacBook.
Also adding to what Chris said, you only get the now playing screen when something digital is playing, so you set one playing and in the now playing screen you can make it multiroom. Multiroom has to be I in input settings for both units too.
