Direct CD Import
Securely import and backup your CD collection into the Melco using a USB connected optical drive for bit-perfect CD Importing along with high quality metadata retrieved from the Gracenote online database.
Automatic Music Downloads
The Melco will download Hi-Res music from participating vendors directly to the internal storage. It will also verify the integrity of the downloaded music files for total confidence in the quality of the download.
Normally a download site is used to purchase music. After paying, when the “download” button is clicked, the files will arrive to the computer over the internet. Once found on the computer, the files can be transferred to a NAS (network attached storage) device on the network.
Melco however will login regularly to the music vendor and check for any newly purchased music. It will then download the purchased files directly into a time stamped “Download” folder by account name. The data will then be automatically verified.
A fully automated process — there is no need to even press the ”Download“ button when purchasing music.
At this time, purchased Hi-Res music can be automatically downloaded by registered users from highresaudio.com.
USB DAC Connection
The internal architecture of the Melco also allows for a simple direct connection between the Melco and almost any USB DAC via a dedicated USB 3.0 port — removing the requirement for an Ethernet connected network player.
The data internal to the Melco is ultra-low jitter, making it far better than any computer USB connection — giving the connected DAC the very best possible data stream to play.
When a USB DAC is connected, the Melco advertises on the local network as a UPnP Player and is simply controlled using your favourite UPnP Control Point App.
USB-DAC playback can be achieved at the same time as ethernet Direct Streaming Music (DSM) and LAN (local area network) streaming.
The Melco has true Source Component grounding via the IEC mains, therefore avoiding any USB ground connection issues that are common when using PC sources.
Melco's dedicated Ethernet port and Purifier allow for Direct Streaming Music (DSM).
The DSM connection allows the player to be fed with precisely optimised data of any HD format including DSD, from a powerful internal UPnP Server.
In conjunction with the player control App, the server ensures a delightful user experience. Data integrity and precision timing is assured by the ultra-low jitter internal data clock and the robust and precise data-bus architecture.
The DSM connection can also establish the Player IP address if required — eliminating the requirement for a network connection providing the Player can be controlled locally from the front panel or an IR remote. No computer is required.
Everything is accessible from a clear and informative front panel OLED display.
The LAN port allows the Melco (as a NAS) to be seen by computers on the same local network. This allows for full music file management, SAMBA network file sharing, multi-room streaming, etc.
