Experience the best Music Streamer combo with the Matrix Audio element i. With a discrete component headphone amplifier circuit, it offers a powerful output of 1300mw. This is enough to drive sensitive IEMs as well as full-sized headphones. You can even connect it to power amplifiers and active speakers. Expect a dynamic performance with almost nil background noise.
Stream audio wirelessly or in wired mode with the element i. You can stream audio from any room over WiFi, DLNA or AirPlay with the help of the MA player. The element i is also Roon ready. What's more? You can control the music wherever you are with the MA Remote app (available for iPhone, iPad and Android phones). This is integrated with Tidal and will soon support Qobuz as well.
With the element i, Matrix Audio aimed to create a Streamer that was cost-effective but at the same time packed a powerful punch. This can be seen in the high-quality components like the Freescale i.MX6 series dual-core ARM processor in the MA player. Each circuit uses multi-channel low-ripple LDO. While it's powered by an external power supply, the power conditioning section is never compromised. The IIS LVDS port connects to the XMOS XU208 USB Interface which in turn connects to the ESS ES9028PRO 8-channel DAC. Overall, the perfect combination for Hi-Res Audio.
