MELCO (Maki Engineering Laboratory Company) was established by Makoto Maki in 1975 in Japan. Maki, an enthusiastic audiophile, established the company to design and manufacture the finest audio components of the time; the undoubted masterpiece of the MELCO line was the turntable (introduced into the UK in 1980) which set new standards in music reproduction.
From those early beginnings, MELCO developed into the largest computer peripherals manufacturer in Japan (Buffalo Inc.), offering advanced products based on rigorous R&D. These included wireless routers, ethernet data switches and storage devices such as NAS drives. Now, the company is proud to revive the highly respected MELCO brand, offering discerning audiophiles high-technology network audio components in the spirit of those much-revered early MELCO products, while incorporating the very latest research into reliable, high-performance networked devices and storage
