Melco have become synonymous with superb music servers, which bring streaming playback up to a new level altogether. Don’t just take our word for it though, visit our showroom and hear for yourself !  We haven’t found a music streamer or DAC that isn’t very significantly improved by using a Melco source, from a humble Sonos player to a mighty Klimax DS, or Naim ND555 music streamer.

Melco Music Servers

The world’s first audiophile grade source component to access, store, deliver and play HiRes Digital Music without the compromise of computer hardware and peripherals, was debuted by Melco Nov, 2014. Since then Melco’s uncompromised audio NAS components have been the talk of the awards. Regularly used by leading audio manufacturers to showcase their devices, they are the de-facto HiRes audio storage and player solution.

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 can add 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 stock to include a range of Melco Servers.

“My Buffalo CD Drive has arrived and is up and running and starting the process to digitise my cd collection in combination with my Melco N1ZH60.
The sound through my Dali speakers is a truly excellent and hard to believe that what I thought was good using my Zone Ripper previously, just fades away with the listening results from the Melco.
I am very grateful to Alan at HiFi Cinema who invited me along to a listening test and was really informative about why your technology is so good in simple layman terms, and as a result, I  upgraded to my new sound system around the Melco.
Here’s to many hours of wonderful listening!
Kind regards
Another happy customer ! :
“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”
