    Product Information

    New Member of the Family
    Element M is a new member of element family, it continues the design language of concise and steady. Matrix Audio look for a balance between performance, functionality and price on element M, hoping to provide a desktop two-channel stereo simplification solution for mid-range active speaker and headphone users.

    MA Player
    Matrix Audio developed MA player which is a powerful audio playback system based on Freescale quad-core ARM computing platform. It supports all the popular audio 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
    Matrix Audio 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). Matrix Audio will continue to improve their app with updates and also develop a similar app for iOS users in the near future. In addition, it’s also ROON Ready.

    AirPlay & DLNA

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.

    ESS Sabre
    Element M is positioned as the mid-range of the entire series and is also the most cost-effective product. Matrix Audio use ES9028PRO advanced D/A solution and SiTime low phase noise clock, combine with Matrix Audio's development experience with ESS chips, to maximise its potential performance.

    High Quality Headphone AMP
    Matrix Audio developed a new low-impedance headphone amplifier consisting of discrete components for element M. This headphone amp has a bipolar input stage that effectively rejects common-mode distortion. The output stage is set in a high quiescent current state, giving you an intriguing mellow sound performance.

    Multiple Control Methods
    The RM3 infrared remote control is standard for element series products, Matrix Audio provide 5 different kinds of address code to avoid interference with other audio devices. On the other hand, MA Remote has 'Virtual Remote Control' feature, you can proceed all the setting operations of the unit through the app.

    Double-Shell Structure
    Different materials have their own resonant frequency. The element X is designed as double-shell structure. The inner shell uses stamp galvanised steel with multi-strip reinforcing ribs to ensure excellent strength and the external shell is made of 4mm aluminium. 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.
