Melco announced at the recent Ascot Hi-Fi Show the addition of a new product to their range, say hello to the S100 Audiophile Data Switch.
The S100 has been built from the ground up as a proper audio switch, not an off the shelf IT accessory the S100 puts priority on sound quality and data integrity, whereas IT put all the emphasis on speed and throughput. The S100 has 4 ports rated at 100MbE speeds (optimised for audio devices) and 4 ports rated at 1GbE for other devices, plus 2 Fibre Optic SFP ports the S100 will offer a dramatic upgrade in performance for those using Ethernet to move audio file around and it is not just for Melco owners, Linn, Naim, Lumin (the X1 uses Fibre Optic Ethernet) and general computer audio uses can benefit from what the S100 offers.
Priced at £1999 the S100 will not be an impulse purchase and proper home demonstration will be needed and this is where your local friendly Melco Master can help 🙂
