Stereophile Review


Simply More Musical

I've reviewed a number of music servers, including the Antipodes DX and DS, the Aurender S10 and X100L, the SOtM sMS-1000SQ, Digibit's Aria, and more. It has been my experience that the differences between a stock computer and any of these dedicated servers are varying degrees of improvement of the same aspects of sound: noise floor, dynamics, definition and dimensionality of sound image, microdetail, and, overall, naturalness and degree of engagement (mine).

The Melco N1A is the least expensive server of this bunch, yet I find its sound quality on a par with more expensive models, and in the ballpark with the best costing up to $6000. If you're looking for a server that sounds better than any stock computer can and you want to keep things simple, think Melco."....Michael Lavorgna
