Project Description

MELCO N1A EX, £2749

Melco N1A EX Digital Music Library

Melco redefined the real potential of Hi-Res digital music playback over Ethernet or using USB DAC when it was introduced a few years ago.

Now, with the introduction of the Melco EX Series, new standards of convenience are achieved, especially for Browse and Search of the music library. New software for the user interface on the OLED display gives more detail of status and playback, with internationalisation covering most metadata requirements, along with advanced options for the CD import and archiving process. Internet Radio is fully supported using the Melco Music HD App.

Melco N1A EX with 4TB internal storage may be the entry level of the N1 series, but it delivers performance and ease of use well in advance of any IT or computer based audio source. The N1A shares all the features of the flagship N1Z EX, but with a single power supply and a less costly chassis, but the basic internal architecture unchanged.

There is still the unique dual Ethernet connectivity with the dedicated PLAYER port for network Streamers,  and three USB 3.0 ports for Easy BACKUP, Easy EXPANSION and connection to a USB-DAC, a CD loader for importing CDs and also Easy Import of music from a USB drive or Flash dongle.
