Product Description

The NAS drive installed in a high-end digital streaming music system is firmly in the computer domain, however it turns out that the way it operates has an impact on the sound that comes out of the speakers. We originally thought that this area was parametrically isolated from the music, however, because of the way that network traffic splits data streams into packets, the packets can get re-ordered by other network traffic. This means the streaming player has to spend time and effort re-assembling them into the correct order again, and this adds significant jitter into the decoded data stream, affecting performance. We found this hard to believe, as we thought most decent streaming players went to extraordinary lengths to de-jitter the re-assembled data streams. The proof however, is in the playing, and sufficient enough for us to spend some significant money on updating our demonstration NAS drive.

The key thing with the Melco N1A Music Server, is that it is a NAS drive with a dedicated network port for the streaming player. This effectively isolates the player from any unwanted network traffic, and sends a highly regulated music data stream to the player, to remove as much jitter from the stream as possible. It still makes the music shares available to other connected devices around the home network, so in this repect looks like a conventional NAS drive.

  • No PC required for setup and installation – no specialist knowledge needed.
  • Specific IP port for Streamer / Player with additional Network port for Control and Ethernet. Simply creates robust network for streaming high resolution music and control even on complex networks.
  • Pre-installed media server – no configuration required.
  • Supports multiple specialised media servers – currently shipping with Twonky 7 with DSD support and Minim Server.
  • Informative OLED front panel display – displays current streaming track data, system status, and setup,
  • Simple menu navigation structure and track selection
  • Simple front panel on-off switch – just like Hi-Fi.
  • 15 seconds only to full power-on.
  • 5 seconds to full shut-down
  • Safe against unintended power down – no requirement for UPS

We’re just in the process of moving all of our music onto the new Melco N1A Music Server, and will have it as the main storage and source of our music from now on. We are astounded at the difference this makes, for not much more money than a conventional NAS drive.  Come to the showroom if you’d also like to hear the awesome N1-Z extreme high end solid state drive version as well !

Melco N1A Direct playback through USB DAC

If you have no digital music streaming player, the Melco N1A music server can take a high resolution USB DAC into one of it’s USB ports, and send a consistent high quality stream directly to it:

These Melco N1A Music Servers are really worth coming and having a listen to, as they make a super improvement to the sound quality you get from a digital streaming player. Don’t just take our word for it, but come and hear for yourself!

 

When I asked you how the Melco play, and when you answered that it plays better than a 555 cd player nobody would believe it, but the way you told it, sounded like “this guy had a unique expérience” and you made me curious.
Today, I understood what you mean, I am just astonished, I just spend through my very well known cd’s I just ripped, those songs I know every note and every detail of those cd’s. But I was wrong, I was not hearing everything of it till I got the Melco.
I just discovered a new dimension of listening, much more detail, sooo much more more depth and precision, rapidity and still detailed, a perfection I could never believe that could come out from my speakers. every note, every finger, the  air in the guitar, it’s just incroyable….
The only time I ever heard a comparable detail was from a single ended 300B tube amplifier. but always lacking power.
But this combinaison with Melco, chord 2qute, supernait2,  brings the same detail with power and the punch get in the stomach when they kick the drum.
This is much more I expected. Even on very complex quick orchestra, the system just follows and reflects every detail of the crowd, instruments and … stuff, which even my ears are not used to hear yet…
Now I have to go to bed unfortunately, I am looking forward to listen more tomorrow.
I thank you again,
Besim
