The Local USB-DAC player can be used in the same manner as the Network Player. The Local USB-DAC player is simply controlled from a UPnP Control App on a Smartphone or Tablet on the network. The App discovers the N1 - DAC as a Digital Media Renderer or Player on the Network as soon as a DAC is connected to the N1.

 The N1 is connected to various Hi-Fi USB-DAC using a standard USB lead.

The N1 Local USB-DAC Player supports PCM up to 384 kHz / 32 bit, and DSD up to 5.6 MHz double DSD. 

Automatic sample rate adjustment to match the capabilities of the connected DAC - e.g. 192 kHz is automatically downsampled to play on a 96 kHz capable DAC.

Automatic conversion of DSD to 24 bit PCM for USB DAC that does not support DSD. (Manual setting in the Menu)

The Playlist can be stored either on N1 (Mode 1) to allow the playlist to be maintained even if the App is out of contact,or the Playlist is stored on the App (Mode 2) when the App requires it. 

The Melco Local USB-DAC player can be easily controlled by your favorite UPnP control Point.

The Melco Local USB-DAC player will play Music stored on open shares on the Network in addition to music stored on the Melco.

[NEW] The gapless playback is supported from FW Ver 2.10.(WAV FLAC AIFF ALAC)
