Melco have made the decision to discontinue their N1A EX model, the N1A was the very first Melco model they launched and it has been hugely popular model over the past few years. 

Audio Therapy has purchased all of the Melco’s remaining stock of the N1A EX

Only available in silver, all stock is brand new in sealed boxes and if you register the warranty the machine itself is covered for 5 years and the 2 x 3TB Hard Drives are covered for 3 years. 

The normal price of the N1A EX is £2750, these machines are available to purchase for £2000 including UK delivery

The Melco N1A-EX is the entry level model in their classic N1 range and is a further development of the first 2 generations of Melco N1A models to further improve sound quality

With 2 x 3TB of onboard storage there is enough capacity to store plenty of ripped/downloaded music.

The N1A EX is now a certified Roon Endpoint

There are 2 ways you can connect an N1A EX to your system, the N1A EX has a dedicated Neutrik USB 2.0 port to connect to a USB-DAC . If you are using a UPnP Network player like a Naim or Linn there is a dedicated ethernet port called the ‘Player Port’ as well which isolates your Network Player from the network to help optimise performance.

It is easy to control the Melco via a number of control apps (depending on your connection method) and with Minimserver 2 and SongKong onboard it is very easy to optimise your music library so it easy to browse with fully correct and consistent meta data.

You can easily archive your CD collection onto the Melco’s hard drives by simply connecting a CD optical drive (like Melco’s own D100) to one of the rear panel USB ports. A typical CD takes around 7-8 minutes to ‘rip’. If you are Melco is connected to a USB-DAC you also have the option to play CD’s as well.

If you have music stored on a USB drive you can easily import this onto the Melco by connecting it to one of the USB sockets and simply selecting import. Music can also be transferred to the Melco HDD over the network.

Also, if you have an account with High-Res Audio or Qobuz you can enter your username/password into the Melco and any purchases you make automatically download to the Melco – nice and easy, no computer required!

If connected to a USB DAC you also have the option to stream Tidal and Qobuz and Internet Radio (via the Melco App)
