The MUO’s two Uni-Q® point source driver arrays are more than just full range speakers. The central tweeter dome is decoupled from the outer cone, allowing it and the woofer to move independently. The result is greater definition and accuracy in the highs, as well as the midrange. A long throw passive radiator reinforces the low tones, giving the sound a full-bodied texture. The driver arrays are positioned for maximum sound dispersion and to minimize interference with each other. When I cranked up the volume, the sound did indeed fill the room without sounding harsh or distorted.
Built-in Bluetooth with aptX®
You can stream music wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet to the MUO via Bluetooth. The system includes aptX audio coding, an advanced type of Bluetooth wireless streaming that retains virtually all the detail of the audio signal it carries. The MUO’s sophisticated digital-to-analog converter renders your music with accurate detail.
The KEF MUO app
While the MUO’s great right out of the box, the free KEF MUO app lets you do even more with this remarkable portable speaker. The app gives you step-by-step instructions for setup. It also lets youpairtwo MUOs together, as I did (I do love my job). You can configure them as a left/right pair for true stereo separation — a great option for a desktop sound system. Or you can have both MUOs play simultaneously — ideal for a deck party where you need music evenly dispersed.
