We now have the flagship Melco Audio Server/Streamer/Digital Audio Transport on permanent demonstration along with the N1ZH/2A, the D100 Optical Drive and the E100 Expansion Drive.
Priced at £8750.00 the N1ZS/2A features a single 2 terabyte solid state hard drive which has been highly optimised for audio playback with several unnecessary IT related features being removed from the drive. Using a Vitus RD-101 as the DAC and switching between the N1ZH/2A and the N1ZS/2A the difference is not subtle. The soundstage is wider, taller and deeper on the N1ZS and there is much more subtle nuances going on in recordings, really fine detail and texture that simply isn’t there on the N1ZH/2A.That’s no slant on the N1ZH/2A, it’s the most popular Melco here at Audio Therapy and for good reason, but the N1ZS/2A does show it a clean set of heels in my demonstration system.
Both machines are on permanent demonstration so if you want to find out which is the best Melco for you please get in touch.
