Melco adds bit-perfect CD importing
Archive-quality CD importing has never been easier with this new feature from Melco
With the latest v3.0 firmware release, Melco adds an awesome new feature: automated CD importing. With a simple plug-in USB optical drive, you can make bit-perfect archival quality imports of your entire CD collection. The process is super simple, and only takes about 4-5 minutes per disc. Using AccurateRip technology for the most exact CD importing. It even works with worn or damaged discs that might otherwise be unplayable.
The update is free to all Melco owners! Simply use the internet firmware update tool in your system settings menu to install the latest firmware. Plug a Blu-ray burner into either the front USB or rear USB3.0 port and you are off and running. Pop a disc into the drive, confirm the title information and the drive will pop out the disc when it's done.
The Melco uses GraceNote to find out what the disc is, and adds title, artist, cover art and track info to your rips. This feature works with either uncompressed FLAC, or metadata-embedded WAV, for superior sound quality and compatibility. The file is then added to your existing library, and you have easy access to it with all of your albums. Melco handles the details so you don't need to sweat it!
