Audible Quality
This is a Massdrop for the newly revised Matrix M-Stage Headphone Amplifier and DAC. From it’s modernized aesthetic to the high quality sound and compact footprint, this is one of the most exciting new releases in mid range headphone gear. After some quick comparisons between this Amp/DAC and the previous generation, the improvements became obvious. Clarity and imaging benefited the most, listening to the previous version felt like looking through frosted glass compared to the new unit’s polished crystal. Bass transformed from inviting to engaging and the highs transitioned from pointed to powerful.
Utility and Build
The Matrix M-Stage Headphone Amplifier and DAC has as much utility as it does amplifying power. Want an all in one DAC/Amp combo? No problem, that’s what this was made for. Want a dedicated amp instead? No problem, just use of the rear facing RCA inputs. All that’s nice but what you really want is a dedicated USB pre-amp? No problem, just use the rear-facing RCA outputs straight to whatever you want. The only limit is yourself. Additionally, this device was built to last with solid metal housing, CNC’d front plate, and tight engineering tolerances throughout.
