X-Sabre MQA

USB DAC MQA Full Decoder DSD1024 PCM32Bit / 768kHz


X-saber PRo MQA Version Full Decoder DAC


With this modernized version of the X-Sabre PRO, Matrix offers a 32bit DAC based on a ES9038PRO chip. This new release adds support for the Master Quality Authenticated technology (MQA) to the already impressive technical capabilities of the X-Sabre PRO.

This 32 bit DAC is able to decode digital DSD stream & PCM (including MQA), making it an extremely complete high-fidelity device.


Test and measurement by Audio Science Review

That beauty runs deep when it comes to performance as Matrix Audio X-Sabre Pro MQA unseats its own brother to take the crown of the best DAC I have ever measured. Considering that the list now includes nearly 160 DACs, this is an incredible achievement.

DAC MQA (Full Decoder)


The X-Sabre PRO MQA has a MQA full decoder. This is the most advanced class of MQA decoder,. IT can natively handle natively authentication, the complete stream reconstruction (Origami Unfold to Core) while incorporating specific compensation to the platform-oriented decoding.

This approach, (FLAC's cousin) provides rich details while greatly reducing file size.
It is thus a very attractive tool for streaming high-definition music with a sound quality comparable to FLAC while saving up to 50% bandwidth (with equivalent resolution and frequency). This provides a multitude of benefits from the perspective of load times, the quality of the required network and fluidity in the succession of tracks.

ES9038PRO Chip


The X-SABRE PRO is equipped ES9038PRO chip. This chip has 8 channels and powerful internal DSP units. It offers a wide range of reconstruction filters and can decode natively DSD while keeping compatibility with DOP or dSC flow in the case of multiple sources.

In addition,DAC ES9038PRO is well-known for its exceptional performance, with a THD under 0.0002% and a signal/noise ratio of 134dB.

Wide connectivity


SABRE DAC X-PRO has an impressive connectivity since it offers USB, Coaxial, Optical, AES / EBU and I2S / LVDS via HDMI as input.

The I2S port offers excellent transmission performance which also allow to establish short and very high speed interconnects.

Finally, the I2S input provides MATRIX-PRO with the ability to to process DSD files up DSD1024 (45.158Mhz).

Advanced electronic circuit

9031.jpg


In order to fit in all types of audiophiles installations, Matrix Audio's X-Sabre PRO has a clock configuration function that can select between 9038PRO reference clock and its own ultra-low noise internal clock. A dedicated software controls this setting to significantly enhance the decoding of the audio stream.

All clocks are built with high frequency Crystek audio oscillators. They enjoy an extremely low phase noise of -169dB and provide clock signals with pinpoint accuracy. Two oscillators brings sample rates 44.1kHz & 48kHz with their multiple and the third is the reference clock of the ES9038PRO chip.

No fewer than 10 power-supply groups ensure the proper functioning of each unit of the circuit. A dedicated LDO ultra low noise regulator ES9311 with two internal power supply groups (noise 1μVrms) powers the left & right channels of the analog circuit.

Interfaces XMOS XU216 & AK4118

To make the most of the excellent capabilities of ES9038PRO decoder, the X-Sabre PRO USB interface embeds XMOS XU216 (asynchronous) and a S / PDIF interface AK4118.

These very performance components allow the DAC to work in the best conditions to enjoy an excellent computing power and multi-channel processing capability.

dac with adjustable gain

Setting High Gain + 18dB


The Line Output of the DAC can be configured with a digital gain of + 18dB. It is therefore not necessary to add an additional preamplifier for active speakers to low gain. The X-SABRE PRO can also be used with a power amplifier for increased flexibility and practice.
