I purchased this unit as new in July 2019 from Shenzhen Audio. It will be shipped will all original original packaging (box in box). Includes Unit itself, AU mains power cord, remote control, USB cable, 2 x wifi antenna and User Manual (English and Chinese language). 

 

The Matrix Element X can drive a set of headphones, active speakers or an amp and passive  speakers. It does DLNA streaming, MQA and functions as a Roon Endpoint or Airplay renderer. I used it in a second system mainly with Roon over WIFI network and Spotify via Airplay. I have tried the coax, optical  and usb inputs and they all work fine. I haven't tried the IIS as I don't have anything compatible.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Heatherton State: VIC Payment Method: Reason for selling: Too many amps Further information:
       
      Bought new from A1 Futureshop last month.
       
      Excellent balanced headphone amp with 12AU7 tubes.
       
      The TA-20 compared surprisingly well to the Mjolnir 2 and is a touch warmer.
       
      Have a Cayin amp incoming so need to sell some gear.

      Item Condition: As new, purchased 3 weeks ago. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Paynesville State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal, EFT or Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Just after buying this I also bought a Cambridge CXA 81 amp which has an inbuilt DAC. Further information:
       Paid $402.95 only 3 weeks ago but the ended up buying a Cambridge CXA 81 amp which has an inbuilt DAC.  I did a lot of research before buying the SMSL M200 and they come up as the by far best DAC for their price.  Balanced and unbalanced inputs, bluetooth that I found as good as the direct input and extensive tuning options. and an included remote. A great DAC but now surplus to my requirements.
