DESCRIPTION

ONE DEVICE, MANY SOLUTIONS

The Matrix Audio element X is one device that's meant to fulfil all your audio needs. It can work as a source device, dual-mode headphone amplifier as well as a pre-amp for active speakers. All you need to do is configure a NAS storage device or connect it to a USB drive to play music up to 768kHz PCM and 22.4MHz DSD.

ES9038PRO DAC & HYBRID VOLUME CONTROL TO STREAM MQA-QUALITY AUDIO

The XMOS XU216 USB Interface feeds the audio signal to the ESS ES9038PRO DAC and Crystek CCHD-950 ultra-low phase noise femtosecond clock for high-res jitter-free sound. The DAC Chip's inbuilt digital volume control is used along with an array of relays to combine the precision of a digital volume controller with the audio advantages of an analogue control to create the perfect hybrid volume unit. The element X supports MQA technology to decode Master Quality Authenticated files and playback the sound of the original master recording.

DLNA OR AIRPLAY, IT'S ALL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

Stream audio wirelessly from any device including your smartphone with the element X. With the help of the MA player, enjoy music using DLNA or AirPlay. It's 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). It is integrated with Tidal and Qobuz.

ENGINEERED FOR A POWERFUL PERFORMANCE

The element X consists of 4 four independent amplifier units. When in balanced mode, it can drive a single balanced headphone while in single-ended mode, it can drive two single-ended headphones at one time. It also features a built-in analogue pre-amplifier section that's configurable with up to +10 dB of analogue gain. A customised Noratel toroidal transformer and Nichicon audio grade capacitors ensure linear power supply for excellent sound quality. Multiple levels of professional-grade ultra-low noise LDO ES9311 and a 4-layer PCB reproduce the original sound as accurately as possible.

DESIGNED TO BE DURABLE & FUNCTIONAL

The element X features a double-shell structure. The outer shell is made of 4mm CNC anodized 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. The simple visual lines on the case are meant to add to its sleek look.
