element M is a new member of element family, it continues the design language of concise and steady. We look for a balance between performance, functionality and price on element M, hoping to provide a desktop two-channel stereo simplification solution for mid-range active speaker and headphone users.

  • The element M runs a powerful audio playback system that supports all the popular formats. Simply connect a USB drive or configure a NAS storage device to browse your music library and enjoy up to 768kHz PCM and 22.4MHz DSD. Click HERE to learn more about MA player.

    MA Remote app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android phones now. Browse and play your own high-quality digital audio, or enjoy hi-res streaming audio, whatever you want. MA Remote is now integrated with TIDAL and Qobuz streaming service. In addition, it’s also ROON Ready. Find Matrix device and control through ROON Remote, making playback faster.

  • Listening to network streaming media has become a normal part of life today. The element series also enables you to play music from your smartphone or other mobile devices via AirPlay & DLNA for convenient wireless streaming.

    MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download. The element series include MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. Visit How it works for more information.

    element M is positioned as the mid-range of the entire series and is also the most cost-effective product. We use ES9028PRO advanced D/A solution and SiTime low phase noise clock, combine with our development experience with ESS chips, to maximize its potential performance.

    We developed a new low-impedance headphone amplifier consisting of discrete components for element M. This headphone amp has a bipolar input stage that effectively rejects common-mode distortion. The output stage is set in a high quiescent current state, giving you an intriguing mellow sound performance.

    The RM3 infrared remote control is standard for element series products, we provide 5 different kinds of address code to avoid interference with other audio devices. On the other hand, MA Remote has 'Virtual Remote Control' feature, you can proceed all the setting operations of the unit through the app.

    Different materials have their own resonant frequency. The element X is designed as double-shell structure. The inner shell uses stamp galvanized steel with multi-strip reinforcing ribs to ensure excellent strength and the external shell is made of 4mm aluminum. The combination of the two metals eliminates the fixed resonant frequency of each material and greatly reduces the negative impact that case resonance can have on the sound quality.
