To celebrate their 45th anniversary Melco have launched an exclusive limited edition version of their popular 2 box server, the N10.
Finished in beautiful champagne gold, this version of the N10 is only available in Europe and is limited to just 50 pieces and comes in a unique presentation box containing an official Melco certificate, pen, chopsticks, coaster, notepad and USB drive.
The standard N10 comes with a 3TB hard drive, but this anniversary version comes with an upgraded 5TB hard drive, more than enough for most serious digital music libraries. Being a limited edition in this wonderful celebratory gold finish (it certainly has a very 1970’s retro look to it) I suspect the 50 pieces will not last for too long, very much a case of first come first served.
This N10 comes pre-loaded with firmware 4.02 EX, so it has Minimserver (starter edition) and SongKong (Lite edition) pre-installed along with Internet Radio capability (for USB DAC & Melco App users only). Melco are now officially Roon certified as well, you can install FW 4.04b (via USB) to add Roon Endpoint functionality.
Connectivity is the same as the standard N10 so the rear panel has 2 USB socket and 2 Ethernet sockets so plenty of flexibility for connecting to a DAC or Network Player plus a CD ripper or USB drive for importing there is also a USB socket on the front as well. The external power supply is designed to provide low noise and offer high performance keeping the sensitive audio circuitry from the main head unit isolated from the mains.
I am delighted to announce that Audio Therapy are going to be receiving one of the these Anniversary Edition N10 models at some point over the next week or so. I can’t wait to fire it up and take some pictures, the gold finish looks incredible! Stock is obviously very limited so if are tempted by one of these I wouldn’t hang around too long, the 50 units are for all of the Europe not just the UK!
