What Melco say

N50 is the first full- width mid- range SSD Music Library.

Music Library is high quality source component which has mainly two functions. One is to store and manage your music tidily. The other is to play music with USB-DAC or Network Player.

Easy to import from CD, USB memory, or music data on your PC. Back up your important music collection simply into USB HDD. You can play music from an App on your smart phone or tablet which beautifully lists your music collection with cover art, artist/album information. If you connect USB-DAC, Music Library becomes a transport of streaming services and becomes a Roon Ready device. Unlike a server for the office, Melco Music Library is purely designed for high quality audio playback.

N50 is made in Japan by “Takumi” ( “master” in Japanese).

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.
