Matrix Audio Element i2 Music Streamer

Great sound by your side

Although element i2 is the entry-level model of the element music streamer, it shares a wide range of technologies with other models in the series, which further narrows the differences of specs between it and higher models. Rich usage scenario settings, complete music playback functionalities, and flexible input and output interfaces make element i2 an excellent companion for your entertainment and gaming.

New UI New impression

When playing over the network, or playing local music via MA Player, rich information of the track is displayed on the screen. The touch screen allows you to perform various operations more conveniently. The newly added playback touch keys make the new generation of element music streamers easier to use.

Full of power Full of details

We added a 4.4 mm balanced headphone jack for the element i2, 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

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.

Enter from a higher point

Despite being the entry-level model of the series, the element i2 is equipped with the same quad-core CPU and digital audio interface chip as the higher models. The powerful processing ability enables the element i2 to process various sampling rates audio files effortlessly. The element i2 is an MQA full decoder, which makes it has a comprehensive playback ability.

Precise timing without deviation

Digital audio is the art of time, a high-precision clock is the basis for accurate playback of digital audio. We added the CCHD-950 ultra-low phase noise femtosecond clock from Crystek to the element i2, 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 the element i2.

Follow your way

The element i2 is equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port to ensure more stable connection when streaming high sampling rate audio files. Make the music data stream in your audio system smoothly.

Under good wireless network signal coverage, you can choose Wi-Fi connection. The integrated 2.4GHz and 5GHz dual-band Wi-Fi antenna, gives element i2 a tidy and clean appearance and a flexible connection option.
