MATRIX ELEMENT H USB 3.0 Controller PCIe Femtoclock Crystek
The Element H USB card is developed to increase the USB audio quality of your computer to the maximum level. The PCIe card is an improved version of the, now discontinued, X-Hi card. It is a plug-in card for the motherboard of your computer. It improves the USB data transport and reduces noise. This makes your computer sound much better as an audio source. A very precise femto clock (Crystek CCHD-575) and a USB 3.0 bridge chip from Texas Instruments provide an independent stable USB audio stream with very low jitter values. The USB ports of your computer are avoided and the sensitive audio stream does not have to share data channels with other USB devices.
The Element H card has excellent filters to eliminate the high frequency noise coming from the computer components. However its performance and the quality of the USB audio stream can be further improved by feeding the Element H USB card with an high quality external power supply (9 to 12 Volts).
