New member of the family

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.

MA player

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.

MA Remote APP

You can browse and playback your local music files, online music stream from TIDAL and Qobuz, and even Internet radio stations through the MA Remote App on your iPhone, iPad or Android phones. The device configurations, firmware updates also can be managed by the app.

AirPlay & DLNA

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 Decoding and Rendering

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.

ESS Sabre

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.

High Quality Headphone AMP

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.

Multiple Control Methods

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.
