Matrix Mini i DAC

Matrix Mini i DAC

“ I've had this DAC for a few months now and I think its pretty much broken in.  At first the sound is very open with a huge sound stage and a tad bit edgy but over time the edginess goes away completely, the soundstage settles in nicely and it becomes very smooth sounding.  This is a very analog sounding DAC with great looks, great variety of inputs and outputs top notch build...” --Dynobot

Matrix X-Sabre DAC

Matrix X-Sabre DAC

“ DSD is all the rage these days. Despite there not being a whole lot of music available in the format (SACDs aside), DAC makers are jumping on the feature as fast as they can. And I can't blame them - aside from our "regular" music, we all love a little ear candy to show off the capabilities of our system.    Another thing that's quite popular? The ESS Sabre DACs. These Sabre...” --project86

Matrix Quattro Dac

Matrix Quattro Dac

“ Matrix Quattro Dac and Amp Impressions   If you just want to hear what I thought about the Matrix combo, jump down about five or six paragraphs! This first part may be a bit extraneous for many readers…   First off, major thanks to @project86  for  his generosity in lending out some gear for us Head-Fi’ers to try, but more importantly because this sort of program...” --shipsupt

Matrix Mini-I Pro

“Greetings, this is a comparative review of the recently updated Matrix Mini-I and Mini-I Pro. Also compared will be the Matrix X-Sabre (DAC only duties) and Matrix M-Stage HPA-2 (headphone amp only duties). The X-Sabre and M-Stage are meant to test each function of the Mini-I independently, and then also as a combination unit. Introducing the new Mini-I and Mini-I Pro: Let's start off with...” --Maxvla

Matrix CUBE

Matrix CUBE

“ http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/516993/review-matrix-cube-dac   That's a link to my extensive review.   In summary, the Matrix Cube is a cross between the Cambridge DacMagic and the Musical Fidelity V-DAC. It matches the detail of the DacMagic with the smoothness and musicality of the V-DAC, all for a lower price. And don't forget the built in headphone amp, which is very much on...” --project86

Matrix M-Stage DAC

Matrix M-Stage DAC

“   Appearance The build quality is identical to the amplifier, same enclosure, same materials, it's the same. It came with a power cable, but no USB cable. I suppose this makes sense, otherwise next you'd be expecting them to throw in interconnects as well.   The LED's are a softer intensity this time, they are very much the same blue and they light up instantly. Where as...” --JosephsART
