The new Matrix Audio Element S is the first music streamer from Matrix Audio with USB DAC outputs. It easily enables streaming audio functionality for your current audio system. element S has rich digital output ports, not limited to USB ports, which are suitable for various outdated DACs. It is an indispensable streaming audio upgrade device in your system, and helps you to embrace the streaming audio world.
MA player is a high-quality digital audio/streaming audio playback control system which is independently developed by 「Matrix Audio」 for its music streamers. With MA player, users can control audio devices in the network through mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets, browse and play music from network drives or USB storage devices. In addition, MA player has integrated streaming technologies such as Roon Ready(Under certification test ), DLNA/UPnP, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect, allowing you to experience high-resolution streaming audio on the local area network.
element S is embedded with a 3.46" high resolution touch screen which presents a featured UI and interaction from 「Matrix Audio」, allowing you to easily operate the device and accurately understand device status. When the streaming music is playing, the metadata including album art, album name, track title and artist etc., will also be displayed. It enables you to more comprehensively master music information and enjoy a better music listening experience.
The USB DAC interface is a digital audio interface that surpasses traditional ports such as optical and coaxial, it feeds high resolution PCM or DSD audio data to audio devices bit-perfectly. With this interface, DACs with USB input can be connected to element S, simply and quickly enable online and local streaming audio for your existing audio system. The USB DAC interface has a 5V/1A ultra-low noise power output. The power supply is processed by a multi-stage ultra-low noise linear regulator and a power filter circuit before feeding to the USB device, to ensure a better performance of the device.
element S is equipped with 2 ultra low phase noise femtosecond clocks from Accusilicon, which works for 44.1kHz and 48kHz and their multiples of sampling rate as reference clock source respectively. An FPGA coordinates the clocks and manages the frequencies. To ensure high quality digital audio with low jitter and present more fantastic details of the music.
