Melco N1A ($1999)

 

...the level of transparency is in another league to that I have encountered with streaming servers in the past, it’s one of those rare components that makes you feel as if the truth is within your grasp. The mythical absolute sound is just a whisker away!"

-Jason Kennedy (TheEar.net)

Streaming. Solved.

 

Nothing is hotter than streaming audio. It promises instant access to your entire collection of music at the touch of button. Unfortunately, streaming audio also comes with the configuration of a home network and associated equipment. Almost every bug or quirk associated with streaming audio relates back to the dreaded network... So, what is an audiophile to do? With purpose-built Melco servers,we finally have a plug-n-play music storage device that requires no network configuration or computer. It plugs directly into your streamer or USB DAC, and provides 4TB of storage with UPnP operability. Simple, elegant and high performance.

Melco - Audiophile Engineering

 

 

  • High grade power supplies with audiophile grade components. N1A - 60W x 1
  • Dual high grade power supplies. N1Z – 30W x2, separate supplies for external data interfaces means no pollution of sensitive internal data and clock supplies.
  • Audiophile grade capacitor bank for absolute stable supplies (*N1Z only)
  • Solid Aluminum front fascia (N1Z) rigid metal chassis.
  • High stability noise eliminating H cross-frame construction for mechanical integrity (N1Z)
  • Specialist audio isolators (Japanese TAOC brand)

  • Simple front panel on-off switch - just like Hi-Fi.

"The Melco buffaloed my MacBook Pro + Synology NAS. It destroyed them, embarrassed them, and gave them a good schooling to boot. Music sounded frighteningly obviously comparatively more refined, more spacious, and more natural. End of story. I cannot imagine anyone in this universe who listens to music as an activity unto itself making the same comparison and not hearing the difference." - Michael Lavorgna(

I though there were some new models pending from Melco?

 

Plus, what happened to Melco's promised control app? I first heard this was due for release last spring. Has it been abandoned?

We just became a dealer, so I don't have any information about their control app. As of right now only 2 models are being imported to the US, but I'm happy to ask about any new models that may be introduced in the coming months. I'll update this thread when I have something to report.

What's this "dreaded network" stuff? Mine's worked fine since they delivered the router four years ago. And if you can plug in a kettle you can set up a network. It's only plugging a few wires in.

"No PC required" How are you going to rip disks, buy downloads, or subscribe to a streaming service without one?

We have requested more information regarding the control app.  As soon as we know more, we will post it here.  

 

Not sure I understand the comment regarding the switching power supply.  Is that a blanket statement, or is there a specific reason for this comment?  I can't get into the weeds here, but there is more than one way to skin a cat.  What's important is the implementation and end result.  I wouldn't judge a book by its cover, if you will.

 

Thank you!

Careful. Sellers bringing revenue to the man usually come out on top.

Sold my N1A months after they appeared on UK market many years ago. Melco were talking about possible control app even back then. Used the Lumin app with my Melco, not ideal but basic functions worked OK with it.
