MELCO Music Library


Music store and stream

Music Library is to store your music tidily and  play music with USB-DAC or Network Player.


Easy to import from CD, USB memory, or music data on your PC. Back up your important music collection simply from front display menu. You can play music from an App on your smart phone or tablet which beautifully lists your music collection with cover art, artist/album information. If you connect USB-DAC, N1 becomes a transport of streaming services and becomes a Roon Ready device. Unlike a server for the office, Melco Music Library is purely designed for audio playback.

Simple to use

Every port has dedicated purpose to use, making it simple to connect and use.


LAN port for network - allows you to access; App operation, access from PC, download music directly from websites (for example, artist/album info collected for CD import.

PLAYER port for Network Player(streamer) – means we can avoid the music data passing through the noisy wifi router.


USB-DAC port for USB-DAC, CD player(USB-in), Integrated Amplifier or Active Speaker

USB 3.0 to import music data from CD with USB-CD drive, USB memory and USB HDD/SSD.
Expansion to increase capacity of the library.
