Product Description

An upgraded Crystek CCHD-950 clock from the previous generation pushes phase noise and jitter down for a clean and precise decode. Matrix even give you the option to run Element I2 in asynchronous or synchronous mode. It's not the clock that's necessarily always in charge of the music – it's you.

Because you could choose to run Element I2 as you've usually done, beyond arm's length using Roon Remote, the stock MA Remote software, and Tidal Connect. But now Matrix add a 3.46 inch LCD touch screen for anyone keen to take advantage of Element I2's low weight and small size in a desktop setting.

Double tap to wake the screen, and swipe left and right to access a myriad of features at the lift of a finger while listening to its balanced 4.4mm headphone amp that outputs up to 1,500 milliwatts.

With so many options at one's disposal, the overachieving Element I2 promises to be the centre-piece of a stereo system or one's headphone booth. It outputs the best small signal to elevate the potential of your painstakingly assembled chain.
