Melco introduces a new model, the N10. It’s intention is to introduce the concept of extreme performance Hi-Res Digital Music in a new form factor, quite unlike conventional Hi-Fi components.

 

Melco N10 Digital Music Library

 

Now introducing the new EX software upgrade with all Melco units. This new software increases the ease of use of the Melco system by adding much greater flexibility to your music library. Browsing and searching your library has never been easier. Both SongKong and Minimserver have been fully integrated to the Melco software, offering an incredibly powerful music library management solution for correct and consistent data.

If internet radio is of more interest to you, then you'll be glad to hear that vTuner Internet Radio has been added to the Melco software and can be utilised by connecting your Melco device to a USB DAC and using the Malco iPad app to control the input. In due course, there will be another update offering the option for the Melco to be viewed as a Roon Endpoint.

Melco introduces a new model, the N10. It’s intention is to introduce the concept of extreme performance Hi-Res Digital Music in a new form factor, quite unlike conventional Hi-Fi components.

Building on the undisputed position held by the existing N1Z series as simply the best Digital Music Source currently available, the N10 continues to improve audio performance while offering a new highly convenient form factor.

Melco N10 is a two box solution designed to improve sound quality by separating power supply and the head unit. Compact half-size head unit has selected 3TB 2.5” SFF HDD with all signal processing and connectivity, while the separate linear power supply is totally isolated from the head unit. The elegant solid aluminium casework has the familiar Melco OLED display and simple 4 button interface for delightfully simple operation and setup.

 

 

Features

  • Extreme performance Audio NAS, and local USB-DAC player
  • Two-box design separating signal processing electronics and power supplies
  • New Melco Control App available
  • Capacity 3TB
  • Extreme Low-Noise High Precision Digital Music Dataflow
  • No Standard IT Components or PC Parts
  • N10 mainboard is optimised for extreme sound quality
  • Dedicated Ethernet Player Port

Melco N10 is housed two units, each chassis 215mm wide – half the width of conventional Hi-Fi components. The Head Unit contains all the processing electronics and the data connectivity. The Power Unit contains a low noise linear power supply and power management. Side by side the two units are the same size as conventional HiFi. The casing is the same size as the Melco D100 CD loader and the E100 Expansion drive. Separating the units allows total isolation of noise pollution, as well as isolating any vibration from the power transformer.

The power supply uses advanced techniques to minimise both internal noise and also external noise which would affect the main Hi-Fi system. The power supply has an IEC 3 wire mains supply with a properly defined ground reference point. Connectivity between the Power unit and the Head Unit is by flexible cord with Neutrik multi-pin connectors.

The metalwork of both units comprising the N10 is designed around a high quality solid aluminium case, including solid aluminium end cheeks. Multiple elements ensure total rigidity and isolation of all components to ensure maximum sound quality. Additionally the N10 offers a new convenient form factor, based on a chassis of 215mm width – half size compared to conventional full size HI-FI. N100 is the same size as the newly introduced D100 CD Loader and E100 Expansion Drive – this means that components can be conveniently placed side by side to match other Hi-Fi components.

New N10 Head Unit

To realise the 215mm width half-sized component, the head unit has both newly designed internal electronics hardware and new operating software. The case is solid aluminium including the end cheeks giving both a sophisticated look and also mechanical integrity and freedom from vibration, further assisted by a complex and rigid internal steel chassis. The front panel has the familiar Melco OLED display and four control buttons – from this simple interface both initial setup – just language and time zone – as well as advanced customisation can be accomplished. When playing music the OLED is very informative showing file name and data format. All connectivity of external devices is also confirmed on the OLED.

Playing directly from CD using a USB CD loader such as D100, or playing directly from a USB drive, the OLED and buttons give full browse and navigation. The front panel USB port is convenient for connecting either USB drives or USB optical drive to import files or directly play. The rear panel has two additional USB ports which allow for USB connected CD loader, or USB HDD for music import or play. Additionally also Expansion of the internal capacity with either an IT USB HDD or the high sound quality E100 expansion drive to increase capacity of the N10 without any additional settings.

Ethernet connectivity is special for all Melco machines – there are two ports. One is a dedicated Player port that connects directly to a network player or streamer without any intervening data switch or IT devices that would compromise sound quality. The second Ethernet port is the LAN connection for access to the N10 for music transfer, control of the N10 local player from a control App, and for accessing streaming music services, activating direct music downloads, and making Firmware updates with just one click from the Internet.

Internal HDD storage

The Head unit contains the small form factor HDD, specially selected for sonic performance. The HDD is supported on the Melco HS-S2 - Highly Stable Storage System – to limit the influence of vibration. The HDD is mounted on a heavy stainless steel plate for damping heat-sinking, and there is additional 3 mm plate to complete the acoustic isolation.

Separate Power Supply Unit

Housed in the same elegant solid aluminium casing as the Head Unit, the Power Supply has a toroidal transformer and extensive filtering to ensure a low noise supply. Connection to the Head Unit is by multi way cable with Neutrik connectors. The Power Supply Unit is supported on 3 isolating feet from TAOC.

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.
