Surrey’s Melco Audio has given its entry-level digital music library a major storage boost. The new N100-H50 benefits from a 150% capacity increase over its standard 2TB N100-H20 sibling, with a whopping 5TB of storage. The N100-H50’s upgraded HDD is also the same audio-specific model that’s featured in the £7,499 N10 45th anniversary edition .
Audio specific storage
Each dedicated drive is hand-picked by the factory to for improved performance and is designed from the ground-up as an audio-specific device, eschewing standard IT components or PC parts.
