The sustainable Ayous wood which wraps around the Mu-so is in a Light Oak finish that has been lacquered and matched with a metallic gold cover and champagne gold fins for the heat sink behind. The whole effect is a lighter, easy going look whilst maintaining the fantastic performance and utility of the Mu-so 2nd Generation.  The wood does not change the sound in any audible way because the Mu-so 2nd Generation is such a solid and well-braced unit in the first place!  If the looks of the original were just a bit too dark or futuristic then this is a great way to match the Mu-so 2nd Generation to a more contemporary area and enjoy the great sound available.  The Mu-so Wood Edition costs £1,599 and will be available from the end of April.
