Matrix Audio Element M2 Music Streamer

Presents the power of music

Under the design language of Matrix Audio family, the new genes of element M2 are ready to burst. It will be the most compact full-featured stand-alone source in your audio system, it will bring your traditional two-channel system into the high-res streaming audio world, and make your multimedia entertainment experience more immersive. The brand new element M2 brings you more surprises.

New UI New impression

The 2nd gen element series music streamer is equipped with a 3.46 inch LCD touch screen. 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.

Richer than rich

If you own a big treasure of digital audio, MA player allows you to easily browse and play music in USB drives or NAS. If you prefer high-res online streaming, TIDAL, Qobuz, Spotify and Internet radio will be your huge library of music. Roon Ready, DLNA/UPnP and AirPlay 2 bring you different music streaming experiences.

MA Remote APP

You can browse and playback your local music files, online music stream from TIDAL and Qobuz, and even Internet radio stations through the MA Remote App on your iPhone, iPad or Android phones. The device configurations, firmware updates also can be managed by the app.

Full of power Full of details

We 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Highway of audio data

The element M2 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.

Follow your way

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 M2 a tidy and clean appearance and a flexible connection option.

Get your pace

The newly added trigger ports allow you no need to turn the amplifier on or off manually, just let the element M2 work as a control center, and enjoy the music with a single touch.
