Library luxury

Following the introduction of its flagship digital music library, the SSD-based N1-S38, Japanese digital music specialist Melco has announced its new N5-H50.

Featuring HDD storage, a mainboard derived from its class leading sibling and a simplified features set, the N5-N50 also packs an extreme grade low-jitter clock from NDK, industrial-quality RJ45 connectors for Melco’s LAN port and dedicated Player port, plus SFP Fibre (Small Form Factor Pluggable) for noise-isolating optical connectivity with suitably SFP-ready devices.

The N5-H50 costs £7,499 and is available in black or silver. Find out more at Melco Audio.
