Review by Audio Science Review

It is my pleasure to strongly recommend the Matrix Audio Element i DAC and Streamer

 test by the measurement forum Audio Science Review

Headphone amplifier

The Element I features a headphone amplifier based solely on discrete components and capable of delivering a power of 1300mW, which can be used with high-resistance headphones as well as highly sensitive in-ear headphones. In addition, Element I offers very good performance in terms of dynamics and noise.

Powerful & Efficient

While the Matrix Element I is affordable, it is still a very powerful drive. At its core, an i.MX6 Dual Core ARM Freescale processor powers the system, providing fast data processing. This processor comes with a digital-to-analog conversion chip ESS ES9028Pro or an excellent USB XMOS XU208 interface. The I2S LVDS port of Element I allows you to connect a USB interface with femtosecond clocks (sold separately).

Connectivity & Power supply

Element I has very complete connectivity. It includes WiFi, Ethernet (RJ45), two USB Host Type A connectors, a USB Audio Type B, I2S LVDS over HDMI, Optics and Coaxial inputs. On the output side, the Element I offers unbalanced RCA stereo, balanced XLR and an amplified headphone output on 6.35mm jack on the front panel. Enough to connect the vast majority of devices.

For the power supply of the Element I, Matrix has chosen to use an external power adapter, allowing you to simply replace this element with a more efficient model without compromising the internal power section of the unit. In addition, each Element I power supply circuit uses independent low ripple multi-channel LDOs to provide an electrical signal specific to the entire system.

Matrix Element I
Fonctionnalités : 4,5/5, j'ai tout testé sauf le Wifi
Qualité sonore : 4/5 Très bon, mais j'ai écouté mieux. A noter une supériorité de la sortie casque VS la sortie ligne asymétrique, et une meilleure qualité sonore avec Tinysqueeze
Facilité d'emploi : 4/5 (association telecommande / appareil assez délicate)
Appli Matrix Audio : 5/5. A souligner car j'étais un peu inquiet vu certains commentaires sur le net. Fonctionne impec.
Rapport qualité/prix (indépendamment de la note 4/45 intrinsèque) ; 5/5
Il reste à confirmer cet avis en fonction de la durabilité et de la fiabilité de l'appareil au fil des ans.
NB : Je posterai peut être une modif de cet avis dans quelques semaines si la qualité sonore évolue après quelques centaines d'heures d'écoute (bien que je n'ai jamais décelé à l'oreille le 'rodage' des électroniques dont tant d'articles parlent)

excellent appareil
J'ai reçu cet appareil il y a un mois, recul suffisant pour poster un avis, d'autant que Qobuz a été récemment intégré dans l'appli MA Remote propriétaire ce qui me permets d'écouter ma musique en Hi-Res dans les meilleures conditions.
La qualité du son est excellente aussi bien en qualité CD qu'en Hi-Res où la scène sonore est époustouflante de largeur et de profondeur. En Hi-Res, la précision spatiale des instruments et des voix est absolument bluffante tout comme le sont les timbres. Le rendu sonore en 192/24 tient toutes ses promesses et le bond qualitatif dans ce format est évident: transparence, précision, résolution.
Seul bémol: l'application MA Remote est perfectible pour la gestion de la musique sur Qobuz
Je recommande vivement cet appareil très accompli.
