Melco N1Z/2 is the flagship of the new Mk2 series. True audiophile source components designed for both Ethernet connected Players (Streamers) and for connection to a USB connected DAC.

The N1Z/2 is constructed as a true Hi-Fi source component with heavy anodised aluminium chassis sections bead blasted to a delightful finish, and with an internal rigid H frame to isolate vibration and isolate the various sections of the hardware.

Twin power supplies with additional capacitor banks with audio grade film capacitors isolate the HDD from the data processing, and multiple stages of noise reduction and isolation ensure the quietest possible environment for the sensitive electronics. A precision low jitter clock handles the data flow whether to the USB-DAC or the Ethernet player.

The drives are mounted on massive non-magnetic foundation plate, and the N1ZH has SFF drives – which have much less electrical noise than conventional 3.5 inch HDD.

Operation of the N1Z is very convenient, with a dedicated Neutrik USB 2.0 port for a DAC, and then 3 USB 3.0 ports for Easy Backup, Easy Expansion, Easy Import of CD or from USB drives, and Easy Play without import from USB drives or CD loader so that a legacy CD collection can benefit from the latest DAC technology. All without any requirement for a PC or any IT type devices in the audio system.
