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 X 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. Click HERE to learn more about MA player.

MA App
MA Remote app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android phones now. Browse and play your own high-quality digital audio, or enjoy hi-res streaming audio, whatever you want. MA Remote is now integrated with TIDAL and Qobuz streaming service. In addition, it’s also ROON Ready. Find Matrix device and control through ROON Remote, making playback faster.

AirPlay & DLNA
Listening to network streaming 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 (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download. The element series include MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. Visit How it works for more information.

ES9038PRO/ES9311/Femtosecond Clock
The element X is the series flagship model using the industry leading ESS ES9038PRO D/A converter along with the professional grade ultra-low noise LDO ES9311 and the Crystek CCHD-950 femtosecond clock. By combining our years of development and tuning experience with ESS best chip to date we have achieved the full potential of this hardware.

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 X is equipped with the brand-new XU216 XMOS processor which can easily handle decoding and unfolding of the highest bit rate MQA format.

Hyper-Control
We wanted to eliminate the weaknesses of traditional analog potentiometer based volume controls and digital based volume controls. So we designed a hybrid digital volume control for the element X which uses an array of relays along with the built in DAC chips internal digital volume unit. This enabled us to combine the audio quality advantages of an analog volume control along with the precision of a digital volume control.

Pre-amplifier
When using active speakers, there is no need to add a pre-amplifier since the element X has a built-in very high-quality analog pre-amplifier section that is configurable with up to +10 dB of analog gain.

Full Balanced Headphone Amplifier
The element X is also a dual-mode headphone amplifier based on the LME49600 and consisting of four independent amplifier units. In balanced mode it can drive a pair of balanced headphones or in single-ended mode, it can drive two single-ended pairs of headphones each having its own independent stereo amplifier.

High Performance Power Supply System
Our linear power supply is the foundation of our excellent sound quality. We use a customized Noratel toroidal transformer along with Nichicon audio grade capacitors. The element X also has multiple levels of isolation LDO, with a well-designed four-layer PCB to help reproduce the original sound as accurately as possible by removing interference of the separate internal systems.

Double-shell Structure
Different materials have their own resonant frequency. The element X 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.

      Item Condition: Excellent! Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Melbourne (Northern Suburbs) State: VIC Payment Method: Bank transfer/Cash Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
       
      For sale is my VPI Scout turntable with JMW9 tonearm, Dynavector 20x (VPI) MC cart and made to order acrylic cover.
       
      A great table that has plenty of positive reviews that highlights its price/performance ratio very much in favour of the consumer. The Dynavector 20x cart was custom made for VPI with 1mV output. It combines the speed of low output and richness and low noise of high output. It has been sparingly used by me so plenty of hours still left. The acrylic cover was made to order and still in great condition. Comes with the JMW memorial tonearm alignment jig and spare cart screws/screwdriver.
       
      All in all a great table setup! I am a fastidious person (read anal) with my audio equipment, so rest assured everything is in excellent condition.
       
      I still have the box but l am reluctant to ship at this stage as l think l will struggle on how to pack it all up safely. So local sale is preferred.

      Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: CARNEGIE State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal (+2.6%), EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Not using Further information:  
       
      Bought this 25 December 2020 from HiFiGo and used it for about an hour. It reportedly powers everything from sensitive IEMs to full-size cans (though I cannot vouch personally for that as I have drastically thinned my headphone herd).
       
      Sounds fantastic, but I decided to either: 1) quit stacking, or 2) stick with my FiiO E12A because I prefer its ergonomics and bass boost with my Etymotic ER4XR IEMs.
       
      I paid the full RRP of $229 USD for this unit and will provide bill of sale.  
       
      This presents in mint condition, with zero signs of use. 
       
      Specs:
       
      Typical line output indicators Frequency response (from 10 Hz to 20 kHz): ±0.02dB THD + n: 0.00015% @300Ω SNR: 124dB @300Ω Crosstalk: <110dB @300Ω Max output: 6.443Vrms 18.4dBu(10Hz to 20kHz) Headphone output power: @300Ω 84mW , @600Ω 42mW ,@32Ω 74mW Class-A: 25mW/16R 50mW/32R Size: 125×65×18(mm) Weight:230g Output impedance: c.1ohm

      Goat for scale! 
       

       
      In action! Love the green:
       

       
       
      The back is covered in a pleather-type substance for protection whilst stacking or placing on a surface:
       

       
       
      The top has a 3.5mm SE input and output, as well as a smooth volume pot with heaps of travel and the perfect amount of resistance for portable use: 
       

       
      The left side has a power switch, two-position gain switch, and a current switch. These let you drive everything from sensitive multi-BA IEMs to power-hungry cans: 
       

       
      The right side has a button to press to indicate battery level:
       

       
      The bottom has a micro USB power input:
       

       
      Comes with all original packaging material, documentation, and accessories. Accessories are limited to a 3.5-3.5 cable and a USB A to USB micro cable for charging (not shown here):

      Item Condition: very good Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Dunedin State: NZ Payment Method: Paypal Reason for selling: too many headphones Further information:Selling my Meze Empyrean which I had for 4 weeks now. Bought it off a friend who ordered it directly from Meze/ Romania in 06/20.
      Arrived in NZ in 09/20 due to Covid19 etc.
      Also bought a ZMF Verite C two weeks ago and admittedly prefer the latter.
      Also have a Kennerton Thridi, Abyss Diana V1 and Heddphone listed on TradeMe New Zealand...in case someone is interested.
      Selling most of my gear to finance a Susvara or Raal...haven’t made up my mind yet.
      Minimal feedback here but check silversurfer616 on HeadFi.
