Matrix Element X2


Den förra modellen av Matrix Element X, var en milstolpe och riktigt bra DAC/Streamer. Det är ett stort arbete som lagts ner på den nya Matrix Element X2 och den är bättre på alla plan.

Inte nog med att Element X2 har en helt grym ljudkvalitet: SNR 131db!
Matrix Element X2 innehåller allt du behöver för streaming eller lokal uppspelning, en helt ny grafisk Oled-display visar vad som spelas. Den nya fjärrkontrollen har skapats för att göra hanteringen bättre. Det utmärkta försteget har förbättrats ytterligare och det låter helt fantastiskt.

Du kan koppla ett slutsteg eller aktiva högtalare direkt till Element X2 och du har en hel stereo som kommer att göra dig förvånad över hur bra det låter. Ett extremt bra försteg är inbyggt med hybrid mode (analogt/digitalt) för bästa ljudkvalitet och som även erbjuder inkoppling av analoga källor.

Det finns mycket att vinna genom att behålla signalen inom samma maskin med kortaste signalvägarna. Det betyder att du inte behöver något extra och en separat streamer kommer låta sämre än Element X2 som har allt du behöver. Du kan strömma musik direkt från dagens tjänster som Spotify/Tidal och Qobuz eller via Roon. Självklart går det utmärkt att även strömma lokalt lagrad musik. Element X2 kan även kopplas till din TV för att få ut ljudet via HDMI ARC.

Rekommenderas varmt av oss som en av de bästa Dac:ar vi testat, det är en riktigt referens produkt och den som är svår att knäcka!

Sweeter and louder

element X2 has built-in a superb pre-amplifier with +10dB analog gain. When the pre-amp is enabled, it can output high-quality audio signals up to 15.8VRMS, combined with Hyper-Control technology, let the entire output range keep ultra-low noise and distortion. It’s no need to add an additional pre-amplifier, simply feed to the amplifier to achieve pure sound.

Full of power Full of details

element X2 has a built-in full-balanced headphone amplifier, which is composed of 8 independent amplification units, every 2 units are connected in parallel, provides higher drive current and output power with a very low distortion and noise, and better control of micro-details to the headphone speaker units. For element X2, there are no hard-to-drive headphones, just plug and play.

Everything In Your Hand

We take every detail of the product seriously, even the remote control is no exception. The new RM4 remote control has added playback control functions, making it more convenient to switch tracks, play, pause and other operations. With the 2 programmable buttons which can be set to your frequently used functions through the MA Remote App. The material of aluminum and plastic makes the remote control comfortable to the touch.

Digital and Analog Sources All-in-One

element X2 not only has multiple digital input ports, it also has added analog input ports. Vinyl turntables with phono outputs, CD players or other devices with analog outputs can be connected to your modern digital audio system by element X2. There are high, medium and low input gain options available to adapt to the different output levels of the front-end device.

Early bird of TV Hi-Fi

We have added HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) input port to element X2. When connected to display devices such as TVs and projectors with HDMI ARC functionality, the digital audio from the HDMI signal can be transferred to element X2 for higher quality playback. If the display device supports HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) protocol, the playback on element X2 can be controlled by this display device.

Femto Clock Built-in

Digital audio is the art of time, a high-precision clock is the basis for accurate playback of digital audio. The element X2 has built-in a Crystek CCHD-950 ultra-low phase noise femtosecond clock, which can effectively reduce the jitter generated in the transmission and processing of digital audio signals, making the sound more realistic and the details more accurate. Laying a solid foundation for the good sound of element X2.

Asynchronous or synchronous, it’s up to you

There are async mode and sync mode available on element X2. In the Async mode, the master clock of the D/A chip comes from the built-in Crystek CCHD-950 femtosecond clock, and the clock from the front-end device will be abandoned. In the Sync mode, the built-in femtosecond clock will be turned off, and the D/A chip depends on the clock of the front-end device completely.

Isolated Design

There are 2 independent power supplies dedicated for the ARM processor and the digital audio processing part of element X2. We put the 2 parts in independent circuit units, and joint them by several optocouplers to achieve complete electrical isolation. The audio circuit part uses an independent linear power supply to present a pure music background to you.
