Music library specialist Melco Audio has rolled out the over-the-air firmware update first touted last September, which brings Roon Ready integration to its five-strong EX Series of digital libraries, unlocking the full potential of Roon 1.8.

The 4.10 update, which has already been automatically sent to owners of Melco’s current EX Series digital music libraries, can be installed by users from the front panel, with just a few button presses.

The firmware also brings a number of features, including markerless DSD compatibility for a greater number of devices, Twonky server stability improvements, plus web page stability improvements.

Further features include a screen saver dimmer mode, the ability to turn Melco’s dedicated PLAYER port off (for sound quality) on the N1A and N1Z models, plus improved language tables for French and German users. Melco users can also enjoy the convenience and discovery of Hi-Res music streaming from services such as Tidal and Qobuz (via UPnP).

Melco Audio General Manager Dan Raggett said: “We continue to invest in features and quality improvements for the benefit of Melco customers old and new. We listen to our customers’ needs and provide the best solutions we can. We are thankful for all customer feedback and are delighted to introduce Roon together with these latest improvements.”Melco’s EX Series of digital music libraries, which includes the recently announced N10 45th anniversary limited edition, are available on home demonstration throughout the current UK lockdown (subject to availability).
