Music Store and Stream



Stepping up from the half-width entry-level N100, the N50-H60 (6 TB HDD) bridges the gap at an exceptional price and performance level. The next step up is the N50-S38 (3.84 TB SSD), Melco’s first full-width library to benefit from an advanced SSD (solid state) hard drive. The 3.84 TB SSD drive at the N50’s heart, brings the benefits of solid state storage and playback to discerning music lovers wanting a full-width (43 cm) solution to complement existing audio devices.

Based on the original N1A library, the new N50 brings contemporary features and the latest Melco expertise to a classic design aesthetic.
