Melco N100 Music Server from Basil Audio

Melco N100



Please only use the power supply supplied with the N100. It has come to our notice that replacement power supplies are being sold that claim to improve the performance of the N100 when used in place of the external power supply shipped with the unit.

The resulting performance using third part “linear power supplies” and similar products will most likely be significantly diminished and may in some circumstances damage the N100 and invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty. Under no circumstances should a power supply other than the one included with the N100 be used.
