    Melco is proud to present the world's first audiophile grade source component to access, store and deliver Hi-Res digital music without any of the compromises of computers and the peripherals. At any stage this is pure and simple and even set-up is really easy. The Melco N1 is both a music store and upNP server for ethernet connected streaming solutions, and is a source for a USB connected DAC. Sound quality is unsurpassed. Melco is not suggesting you've been listening to the Beatles or Brahm or Taylor Slow before, but with Melco nothing is missing, because there's nothing to take away. There's no need for a PC in order to setup or manage the system and not a single intervening switch or I.T component to come between you and your music

    Network Connected Music Store and Server

    Unlike PC set-ups, Melco's dedicated Ethernet port and Purifier allow for Direct Streaming Music. The DSM connection allows the player to be fed with precisely optimised data of any HD format including DSD, from a powerful internal UPnP Server, which in conjunction with the player control App, ensures a delightful user experience. Data integrity and precision timing is assured by the ultra-low jitter internal data clock and the robust and precise data-bus architecture.

    The DSM connection can also establish the Player IP address if required - eliminating the requirement for a network connection providing the Player can be controlled locally from the front panel or IR handset. No computer is required. Everything is accessible from a clear and informative front panel OLED display.

    The LAN port gives a more conventional view of the Melco as a NAS allowing for full music management, SAMBA sharing, multi-room streaming etc.

    Source for USB Connected DAC

    The internal architecture of the Melco also allows for a simple direct connection between the Melco and Auiophile DAC using a dedicated USB 3.0 port, removing the requirement for an Ethernet connected Player.

    The data internal to the Melco is ultra-low jitter, making it far better than any computer USB connection - giving the connected DAC the very best possible datastream to paly.

    When a USB DAC is connected, the Melco advertises on the Network as a UPnP Player and is simply controlled using your favourite UPnP Control Point App.

    The Melco has true Source Component grounding via the IEC mains so avoiding any USB ground connection issues that are common when using PC sources.

    Audiophile Engineering

    High performance single 60w power supply with noise reduction technologies, Multiple low mass regulators for long term stability. Specialised pulse isolating transformers for both Ethernet ports ensuring accurate impedance match and isolation from networks noise. LED port indicators can be switched off.

    About Melco

    Melco was established by Makoto Maki in 1975 in Japan. Maki, an enthusiastic audiophile, established the company to design and manufacture the finest audio components of the time - the undoubted masterpiece of the Melco line being the turntable, introduced into the UK in 1980, which set new standards in music reproduction.

    From those early beginnings Melco developed into the largest computer peripherals manufacturer in Japan, offering advanced products based on rigorous R&D, including Wireless routers, Ethernet Data Switches and storage devices such as NAS drives.

    Now the Company is proud to revive the highly-respected Melco brand, offering discerning audiophiles high technology networked audio components in the spirit of those much revered early Melco products, while incorporating the very latest research into reliable high performance networked devices and storage.

    'Melco' stands for Maki Engineering Laboratory Company.
