The N5 digital music library is the next generation of the acclaimed Melco concept for extreme sound quality from music stored within the N5, networked music, and external streaming services when used with a USB-DAC.

All Melco digital music libraries play music into either network streamers or into a USB-DAC, and can also be configured to operate without an ethernet network.

Melco N5 features all-new electronics, with a new mainboard, high grade low noise internal linear power supply and extensive pro-grade connectivity.

Mechanical construction contributes to sound quality by minimising vibration and resonances, with isolating HDD mounting, robust steel panels and substantial aluminium components, and TAOC cast iron feet.
