Melco redefined the real potential of Hi-Res digital music playback over Ethernet or using USB DAC when it was introduced a few years ago… …Now, with the introduction of the Melco EX Series, new standards of convenience are achieved, especially for Browse and Search of the music library. New software for the user interface on the OLED display gives more detail of status and playback, with internationalisation covering most metadata requirements, along with advanced options for the CD import and archiving process. Internet Radio is fully supported using the Melco Music HD App.
Melco’s advice: replace the Twonky server software with MinimServer, and use it in place of a network storage drive in a network audio setting, and be amazed at just how much more sound quality you can get from any system.
