Wow moment with bespoke NAS?

Non, why would you want one. It's a computer, built to a spec. You decide on the spec you need, and buy it. Specialist audio Nas drives are no different, they are built from standard computer compents to play on audiophile audio nervosa, and probably overactive imagination.

Ok thanks

about the only aspect of a NAS that might impact audio quality is if it is transcoding formats (or doing something else) that means the CPU can't keep up and it starts to fail to send the data fast enough but that will cause drop outs or stuttering, not a drop in audio quality.  But just shipping a FLAC file or similar to a DAC or streamer is barely any effort.  Assuming its a half decent network then capacity is unlikely to be an issue unless you're streaming 4K video to several things at the same time.

You are right, but a fundamental error was to use the word 'NAS' to describe the Melco. It can serve files but its functionality is more as a USB attached player that has locally stored files. Even if it uses a network end point it does so by direct connection to the end point by ethernet which is isolated from the rest of the network if my understanding of the product is correct. So while it can function purely as network attached storage if you wanted to, it wouldn't be great use of such a versatile product.
