Full-width design, solid-state benefits

N1A (and variants)


The original full-width digital music library started many music lovers on a journey of discovery with Melco’s audiophile-grade premium libraries. 

With a high-quality chassis which lives on in the recently launched N50-S38 and N50-H60 full-width libraries, the N1A and its subsequent versions showed what could be achieved with audio-specific components, Melco’s unrivalled data-transfer know-how, plus Japanese design, engineering and hand-assembly.
