Powerful Hardware Platform

X-SABRE PRO (MQA) used the ES9038PRO advanced 8-channel D/A chip, and its inner DSP unit and artificial circuit have the high performance and better user experience. The new generation XMOS XU216 USB asynchronous transfer interface and new AK4118 S/PDIF receiver chip, with powerful computing performance and multi-channel processing performance, make X-SABRE Pro (MQA) has excellent digital audio conversion capability.

MQA Full Decoder

Matrix Audio in partnership with MQA Ltd. created the MQA Supported X-SABRE PRO audio DAC to let you experience the abundant music details as the artists' recording room. X-SABRE Pro(MQA) is a MQA full decoder DAC which can fully decode the original MQA files without any assistance from the third party player software (MQA Core Decode).

 

IIS Port

X-SABRE Pro (MQA) is equipped with the most complete input ports of this series, in addition to optical, coaxial, AES/EBU, USB ports, we even added a IIS·LVDS input via a HDMI connector to differential transmit IIS signal, maximize the transmission performance of the IIS port, to make the data from the short-distance transmission between the chips into high-speed interconnection between the devices, get rid of the USB transmission or S/PDIF transmission re-encoding, and let the original digital audio stream directly into the D/A chip.

Ultra-low Noise LDO

ES9311Q dedicated ultra low noise LDO, with two groups clean power supply as low as 1μVrms noise, respectively provide to the left and right channels analog circuit of ES9038PRO to ensure excellent SNR performance, in additional, X-SABRE Pro also has up to 10 groups of low-noise LDO power supply for each circuit unit.


ESS SABRE PRO

X-SABRE Pro is a DAC equipped with ES9038PRO D/A chip, that has been first put into mass production in China or even around the world. Matrix fully explored this advanced 8-channel D/A chip's potential, compared to the previous generation ES9018S, ES9038PRO fully optimizes the internal DSP units, further improve the performance and customer use experience. We selected the excellent audio components and well-designed circuit layout to making X-SABRE Pro's SNR reached an incredible -134dB.

Full Port DSD

From now on, DSD audio stream is not limited to playback through the USB port, X-SABRE Pro support DoP or dCS from optical, coaxial and AES/EBU input, convenient to connect digital music player which with the DoP/dCS output function.

IIS Port

X-SABRE Pro is equipped with the most complete input ports of this series, in addition to optical, coaxial, AES/EBU, USB ports, we even added a IIS·LVDS input via a HDMI connector to differential transmit I2S signal, maximize the transmission performance of the IIS port, to make the data from the short-distance transmission between the chips into high-speed interconnection between the devices, get rid of the USB transmission or S/PDIF transmission re-encoding, and let the original digital audio stream directly into the D/A chip.

(NOTE: The IIS LVDS port is not a commonly used interface, currently, it has no uniformed interface standard. "In line with PS AUDIO standard" refers to the signal definition of HDMI connector is defined exactly the same with PS AUDIO device, but it is not guaranteed that the X-SABRE Pro is compatible with all the devices conformed to this definition.)

DSD1024 PCM768

As a new generation of Matrix flagship DAC, X-SABRE Pro not only supports 32Bit/768kHz PCM audio stream playback, but also supports DSD64, DSD128, DSD256, DSD512, and even supports DSD1024 with the sample rate of 45.158MHz via I2S input port.

More Sampling Rate Supported

X-SABRE PRO(MQA) can support the Master Quality Authenticated coding technology developed by UK MQA Limited which can decode the MQA audio stream up to 24 Bit 384kHz. When X-SABRE Pro's display is showing "MQA", it means it is decoding the MQA audio authorized by the artist or publisher (MQA Studio). Meanwhile, X-SABRE Pro also can support DSD512 and PCM audio stream up to 24Bit/768kHz sampling rate.

Asynchronous or synchronous

X-SABRE Pro has the clock configuration circuit unit, can choose to use ES9038PRO synchronous clock source or external ultra-Low phase noise clock source, cooperate with software control to free convert ES9038PRO work mode between synchronous or asynchronous, and greatly improved the playability.

Ultra-Low Phase Noise Oscillator

Digital audio is the art of time, high-precision clock is to ensure the basis of digital audio playback, X-SABRE Pro build-in three hi-res audio dedicated Crystek ultra-low phase noise oscillators, the phase noise as low as -169 dBc/Hz. Two for sample rate of 44.1kHz, 48kHz, and their multiples, and one for ES9038PRO reference clock, you can hear the accurate sound!

Ultra-low Noise LDO

ES9311Q dedicated ultra low noise LDO, with two groups clean power supply as low as 1μVrms noise, respectively provide to the left and right channels analog circuit of ES9038PRO to ensure excellent SNR performance, in additional, X-SABRE Pro also has up to 10 groups of low-noise LDO power supply for each circuit unit.

Different Strokes For Different Folks

With up to seven kinds of PCM digital filter options, select a different filter curve to fine tuning the timbre, easy to meet different customers in the pursuit of subtle differences on timbre.

Built-in Pre-AMP

The line output of X-SABRE Pro can be configured with a +18dB digital gain. It's not necessary to add an additional pre-amplifier for low-gain active speakers. X-SABRE Pro also can work with power amplifier more conveniently and flexibly.

Touch & Enjoy

Obviously, the new added circular screen is a new significant function of X-SABRE Pro, all the information can intuitively displayed on it, such as input channels, digital audio formats, sample rate, volume and etc. The tempered glass inlaid in the front panel supporting touch control.

CNC Precision Molding

Matrix has improved the precise diamond cutting design to a new level for X-SABRE Pro. The exterior of the product features a perfect combination of power and art. The aluminum CNC precision molding process to create the perfect mechanical strength and excellent interference shielding performance.

Remote Control

We added infrared remote control to X-SABRE Pro. The delicate remote control, illustrating Matrix's notion of making everything better. Focusing on and carefully depicting every details, we provided more convenient operation on the device, meanwhile you can enjoy high-quality music contentedly.

A New Peak

Audio dedicated low-temperature drift and non-inductance resistances, Noratel toroidal transformer, Neutrik connectors, etc., X-SABRE Pro is a collection of high-quality components selected by Matrix. Better sound, more applicability, more convenient operation, more ornate appearance, and more precision manufacturing process, X-SABRE Pro has created a new top of the Matrix DAC.
