Full of power Full of details

Matrix Audio added a 4.4 mm balanced headphone jack for the element M2, making it convenient to pair with various headphones. The built-in headphone amplifier has been upgraded to a 4-channel full-balanced architecture. The fully symmetrical circuit design allows the left and right channel signals to pass through a nearly perfectly symmetrical amplification circuitry. Providing plenty of headphone output power at low distortion and noise.

Everything In Your Hand

Matrix takes 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.

Early bird of TV Hi-Fi

We have added HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) input port to element M2. 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 M2 for higher quality playback. If the display device supports HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) protocol, the playback on element M2 can be controlled by this display device.

Matrix Audio Element M2 Asynchronous Syncronous
Asynchronous or synchronous, it's up to you

There are async mode and sync mode available on element M2. 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.

Matrix Audio Element M2 Circut
Isolated Design

There are 2 independent power supplies dedicated for the ARM processor and the digital audio processing part of element M2. 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.
