Advanced headphone connectivity
The Element X2 offers a dual-mode headphone amplifier, with a fully balanced output paired with the standard ¼” headphone jack. The balanced output is composed of 8 independent amplification units, divided into 4 parallel pairs, allowing for more current, and stronger output power with low distortion and noise to your headphones. No pair of headphones are too hard to drive, just plug and play.
A full-featured preamplifier
The Element X2 has a built-in pre-amplifier, capable of +10dB analog output gain. When the pre-amp is enabled, it can output a signal of up to 15.8VRMS. This, in combination with Matrix’s Hyper-Control technology, ensures that audio output is ultra-low noise and distortion for your listening enjoyment. Thanks to this integrated preamp technology, simply connect the Element X2 to your stereo amplifier and you have a complete listening system.
Convenient control in the palm of your hand
Every aspect of the experience you’ll have with the Element X2 is taken into consideration, which of course includes the app and physical remote control. The elegant RM4 remote control offers total playback control, making it convenient to switch tracks, play, and pause your music on the fly. The remote features two programmable buttons, which can be mapped to your favorite functions via the MA Remote App.
