EAR Hi-Fi Music Gear Review

“The Melco N1Z is a lovely piece of kit, very well built and thoroughly thought out, all it needs is a dedicated control app to make it irresistible to those after a genuinely refined digital audio experience. The option to add a peripheral disc drive means that you can import a CD library without resorting to the computer and the dedicated USB output negates the need for a network streamer. All in all a very fine piece of kit indeed, I want one!”
