ES9028PRO DAC TO STREAM MQA-QUALITY AUDIO

The element M has an ESS ES9028PRO DAC and SiTime low-phase noise clock for high-end jitter-free sound. The discrete low-impedance headphone amplifier circuit has a bipolar input stage and high quiescent output stage for rich mellow sound without any common-mode distortion. It even supports MQA technology to decode Master Quality Authenticated files and playback the sound of the original master recording.

DESIGNED TO BE DURABLE & FUNCTIONAL

The element M features a double-shell structure. The outer shell is made of 4mm aluminium while the inner shell is fitted with stamp galvanized steel with multi-strip reinforcing ribs. Both metals are effective in removing the fixed resonant frequency of each shell. This reduces the negative impact that case resonance has on audio quality. It also ensures excellent durability.
