We have collaborated with our friends at Melco to bring you a fantastic competition for a chance to win a N100 digital music library worth £1,800.
Our Editor Alan Sircom recently did a web exclusive review of the N100 where he wrote, “OK, so in reality ‘computer-less computer audio’ is an oversimplification; the architecture inside the Melco N100 is still very much that of a digital computer; it has inputs, outputs, memory, storage, a processor, and it operates using a series of programs running along an operating system…the N100 is the smallest and most affordable in the range; the half-sized device that manages to cram a lot of architecture into a very small box. What’s also shared with all Melco models is an ability to cope with tracks up to 32bit/384kHz PCM, or DSD 512. MP3, WMA, and OGG fall into the ‘squirt, not play’ category. There is a matching D100 CD/DVD/BD transport/ripper, and a E100 external 3TB hard drive (you can also use your own external USB hard-drives). There is also a bigger brother called the N10, which beefs up the size of the (internal) hard drive (from 2TB to 3TB) and comes with an external power supply. “
He went on to conclude, “…a device like the Melco is hard to categorise. It’s an increasingly powerful music library in its own right, especially when used with Melco’s own app, but effectively acts as a UPnP server, or even just a high-performance storage device if you want to ‘roll your own’ using something like Roon. In a way it makes it a bit like a butler in an English costume drama (without all the underlying and unresolved sexual tension, or the Jeeves-like dry wit); it does the job almost invisibly, effortlessly, and perfectly. And it’s built like a tank, too!”
