32bit/768kHz DSD1012 DXD Audio DAC

X-Sabre Pro

32Bit/768kHz DSD1024 Audio DAC

 Gorgeous Upgrade

The pure DAC X-SABRE finally ushered in her comprehensive upgrade. X- SABRE Pro dress up a new generation of the world's top D/A chip, not only inherited the fine lineage of previous generation, but also added a number of convenience features, all above to make it transformed into a new generation flagship DAC of Matrix.

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.

I²S 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 I²S·LVDS input via a HDMI connector to differential transmit I²S signal, maximize the transmission performance of the I²S 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.

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.

 

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.
