Mu-So qb connecting to Hi-Fi

Posted by: diggygun on 26 December 2018

Just recently got a Mu-So qb. My question is, can this connect to my Naim Hi-Fi system as a source, e.g. as a tuner?

There are no output sockets on a Qb so you won't be able to use it as a source.

You can use a particular socket for headphones and thus can use the same to output to a pre.

But, why?

No, you cannot connect your Qb to your Naim Hi-Fi system as a source, e.g. as a tuner. As Guinnless says there is no output on a Qb, and sorry Mike there is no headphone socket.

Just use your iPad or other iOS device and connect via cable or something like an airport express to the system. The Qb is for replay not transmission.

While I agree that the Qb is not for transmission, If I go to the Qb first and select a source, like my Uniti Core, or internet radio, or Tidal, I can then go to Multiroom and attach my ND555 to the Qb and it will slave the same music--not that I would ever want to do it.  I found that by mistake when I was trying to select a source on the ND555 and then slave my Qb to that.  I suspect that the same would be true of other Naim "rooms" like the 282.

I use mulitroom between 3 systems, though Iím yet to work out whether one broadcasts to the others, or whether they each process from the same source.

Hello Mike

While I have a wireless network in my house for computer connections, I have no antenna on my ND555 nor my Unity Core (Same room).  The ND555 is set up to connect via internet and I believe the wifi function is turned off in settings.  They both connect via an internet cable.  The Qb is set up to connect via Wifi.  So in my case, I believe its connecting via wire.

Hi Ballyhill, yes, I have a Core, Nova and Uniti room on internet and a UC2 on WiFi. They can all mulitroom. Iím not sure, that if I mulitroom on the UC2, whether that output streams to the Nova for example, with reduced SQ at Nova, rather than steaming from the Nova to the UC2.
