In 1999, in the beautiful ancient city of Xi'an, the three founders met after entered their high school. They spent their 3-year school time in studying audio devices, talking about music and playing with musical instruments. When the three classmates reunited in 2009, they decided to create their own brand "Matrix Audio" and make their own audio products. After several years of trial and exploration, they established Matrix Electronic Technology Co., LTD in Xi'an at 2013, and registered "Matrix Audio" trademark. Now Matrix team has become a professional company composed by a group of music loving electronic engineers, which designs, manufactures and sells high performance audio devices. Matrix products now popular in many countries and regions in the world, and has been recognized by many music enthusiasts and gained a good brand reputation.
The name of the brand is derived from the mathematical concept "matrix". Matrix is built by portrait and landscape, we call the brand "matrix" because we are looking for the balance between the 2 dimensions. We examine audio products through listen and see, also incorporate this concept into our design. All of our products should not only have excellent sound performance, but also have a great design that can be integrated into home environment. Harmony is our goal.
We spent more than a year incorporating a quad-core ARM processor (Freescale i.MX6) into Matrix products. Then we developed a high-quality audio system based on Linux. The element series is our first product that transforms into a full-featured audio source with built-in music playback for streaming media over your network or files from a local disk.
Matrix Audio, in partnership with MQA Ltd., has created the MQA-supported X-SABRE Pro audio DAC to let you experience the abundant music details in the artists' recording room. X-SABRE Pro is an MQA-enabled DAC which can fully decode the original MQA files without any assistance from third party software (MQA Core Decode).

X-SPDIF 3 built-in high-quality femtosecond clock and FPGA processing unit, it can playback up to 32bit/768kHz PCM audio stream and 1bit/22.4MHz DSD audio stream.
The element H USB 3.0 interface is a PCI device designed to increase the audio quality of computer-based USB ports. It increases the data transport quality and reduces power supply noise, making it essential for any PC-based Hi-Fi system.
