Wireless speakers used to be the weed trifles of the hi-fi family. Then Naim's Mu-So came.

It looked like a metal paving slab, so heavy that you were concerned about your toes, and so loud that my wife raced up in 0.3 seconds to insist that I refuse it.

The £ 1,000 speaker was an instant hit for British veterans Naim and created a new category of hi-fi equipment: wireless speakers for sonic snobs.

The Naim Mu-So has the same brain as Naim's £ 20,000 network player. Each speaker now has its own amplifier. Thanks to a bass management system, it can practically destroy your home at high volumes

Five years later, version two is switched to 11 (including the price, which is now £ 1,300). But for anyone (like me) who is immature enough to find powerful hi-fi systems hilariously exciting, this is a beast.

There is also an HDMI input that you can use to make your TV anti-social.

Yes, it's expensive (and if it's too much, you can now still buy the great original Mu-So in John Lewis for just £ 895). But for that money, you'd have trouble finding something that sounds better or hits harder. And it's still (very slightly) cheaper than a top-end iPhone.
