Product Details

Introduction:

Visual Design:

Our brand-new element series has a simplified visual design removing unnecessary elements. It features simple visual lines with a precision CNC anodizing aluminum case.

Start From The Core:

We spent more than a year incorporating a quad-core ARM processor (Freescale i.MX6) into Matrix products. Then we developed a high-quality audio system based on Linux. The element series is our first product that transforms into a full-featured audio source with built-in music playback for streaming media over your network or files from a local disk.

MA player:

The element series runs a powerful audio playback system that supports all the popular formats. Simply connect a USB drive or configure a NAS storage device to browse your music library and enjoy up to 768kHz PCM and 22.4MHz DSD.

MA Remote app:

We have developed an Android app for the element series so users can browse and play their music from any smart device connected to the same local area network (LAN). We will continue to improve our app with updates and also develop a similar app for iOS users in the near future.

AirPlay & DLNA:

Listening to network streamed media has become a normal part of life today. The element series also enables you to play music from your smartphone or other mobile devices via AirPlay & DLNA for convenient wireless streaming.

MQA Decoding and Rendering:

MQA is a high-resolution audio coding technique that enables high sampling rates from smaller file sizes. The element series features full MQA integration for high resolution unfolding of all MQA encoded streaming media. This improves both the quality and enjoyment of available music both now and in the future.

ES9028PRO/Femtosecond Clock:

In the brand-new element P, we still accept the industry leading ESS Company's solution, high performance ES9028PRO D/A chip and ultra-low phase noise femtosecond clock CCHD-950 from Crystek as a basic guarantee for high-quality sound, we adopt MUSES72320, a resistor divider's control mode for volume control of analog section , which retained the original sound quality to the maximum extent.

Brand New USB Interface:

With the rapid development and release of high-quality music formats, the processing requirements are also higher than ever before. The element P is equipped with the brand-new XU216 XMOS processor which can easily handle decoding and unfolding of the highest bit rate MQA format.

ICEpower Digital Amplifier Module:

We choose the ICEpower 250ASX2 class D amplifier module from Denmark as the core power amplifier in the element P. The rated power output is 230 Watts per channel at 4 Ohms, which can easily drive any speakers from small bookshelf models to small or medium sized floor-standing models.

Linear Pre-amplifier Power Supply:

We used a linear power supply on the front-end instead of the ICEpower module’s provided front-end output circuit. This prevents superimposed noise from the module’s power supply from entering the pre-amp section. The linear power supply consists of a customized Noratel toroidal transformer along with Nichicon audio grade capacitors and incorporates a multi-channel linear LDO supplying power to the digital and analog circuitry in the front-end of the element P.

Double-shell Structure:

Different materials have their own resonant frequency. The element P is designed as double-shell structure. The inner shell uses stamp galvanized steel with multi-strip reinforcing ribs to ensure excellent strength and the external shell is made of 4mm aluminum. The combination of the two metals eliminates the fixed resonant frequency of each material and greatly reduces the negative impact that case resonance can have on the sound quality.
