Midrange model blending performance with value



The mid-range N1Z/2 is one of two compact models in the Melco line: the N1ZH/2 (‘H’ for hard drive) and the range-topping N1ZS/2 (the ‘S’ denoting a solid-state drive). 

These compact models introduce a greater number of design and technology enhancements to improve sound quality even further. 

Touches such as the heavy aluminium chassis, noise-eliminating construction and vibration-isolating feet, give the N1ZH/2’s advanced circuitry the optimum environment in which to operate for even greater audio performance.
