Compatible and Powerful
Matrix Element has a discrete headphone amp with 1300 mw of power, it can easily drive various high-resistance full-sized headphones and high-sensitive IEMs.
The excellent dynamic performance and inaudible background noise, make you concentrate to the music.
The device can be controlled by IR remote and MA Remote app, you can easily control the volume and input channels even if connecting to active speakers or power amplifiers.
Suitable is the best
element i aim to cost-effective, but the hardware is still powerful enough: the Freescale i.MX6 series dual-core ARM processor is used as the master core of the MA player, the D/A converting module is using the ES9028PRO 8-channel D/A chip from ESS and XU208 audio interface from XMOS.
As an entry model, we keep the IIS LVDS port, which allow element i to connect to USB interface with femtosecond clocks.
Internal or External Power Supply
element i is powered by an external power supply. Audiophiles can upgrade their external linear power supply according to their requirements and explore the potential of element i. Even so, the power conditioning section in element i is never compromised.
Each circuit unit still uses multi-channel low-ripple LDO independently, as the basis of good sound performance.
