If you have an Android phone or tablet, you can use a Wifi analysis tool to see what the signal strength is near the streamer. I use Wifi analyzer. If you are using a consumer Access Point, I suggest getting something better (e.g. Unifi although they are hard to use). Pretty sure your problem is signal quality/strange and nothing wrong with the streamer.
Also make sure the polarization is the same for both the streamer antenna and AP.
Hi Borghesi, thank you very much. We are good now, both the matrix team and the relatives. we started full time work since last week. Now element series and X-SABRE Pro MQA are all in stock now.
Dear BorghesiHi Matrix Audio Team,
now I have recived my new Matrix X. It looks good and sounds as good as I expected since I already have an OPPO 205 which sounds very similar.
I bought the matrix X because I was looking for some details the OPPO not have e.g. the manual nob to control the volume.....
But unfortunatly I experianced some behavier (from the MA Remote) what is not realy satisfying for me (maybe I have overseen something to setup !?) :
1.) If I play a song from my NAS (conectec via Ethernet) the next song not starts automaticlly (All songs are in subdirectories/Albums). So it is not possible to hear continusly music.
2.) The second is: if I enter a subdirectory /Album (I have about 140 wave-Albums on the NAS) and go back to the main-folder (e.g. all WAVE Albums) the indication jumps back to the first subdirectory / Album in the list (Album with the letter A), this behavier is not really convinient specially if you are in a Album with the letter at the end of the alphabet. It means if I looking for songs enter and left e.g. Album R then I dont want to start again with Album A. It is logical to continue at the same location where entered Album R so that the next Album would be e.g. Album S.
3.) The third issue would be to have the possibility to stream music from the internet but without to be dependent on a streaming service like tidal. It
would be nice to have the possibility to connect to some nice radio stations like www.solopianoradio.com (with embaded passwort if member).
The third point is not so important because I have a logitech internet radio what I can conect to the element X. But very important would be issue 1.) and 2.).
In the moment I have the firmaware version B21201
Got it, I will report your advices to the developers. Thank you.Hi Matrix Audio Team,
thanks a lot for the really fast answer and the attached picture (one picture says more than thousend words...).
1). Yes I have I seen and used the "Play all" option above, it is good to play an complete subfolder like a CD. I have several subfolder with hundreds of songs (mostly without metadata). Sometimes I like to start maybe with song nr 128 but than only song nr 128 will be played. It would be good if the playing would continue with 129, 130, 131 ..... without to stop directly after song nr 128. Maybe this function would not work good togehter with idea of the options "play next" and "Add to the end of queue" !?. Anyway, for me a similar function or an alternative is the playlist - with the disadvantage that it needs more time to select maybe 30 Songs and send them step by step to the playlist. For the playlist it would be a great improvement if it would be possible to select a number of songs and send them togehter to the playlist. Maybe the clef sign on the left side of the songtitle could be used to mark songtitles. Then all marked songtitles cold be send togehter to a playlist or could be played directly with "Play next".
One more word to the playlist (a very useful function). Maybe you can allow blanks or other special signs for separate the name of a Playlist. This would help to read the name of the Playlist a little bit better.
Thankyou also for the advice about the update, yesterday night after I wrot my message to you, I have seen that there is a update. Now I allready have installed it (I apreciate that you realy work hard to improve your units - and not leave the costomers alone with problems !).
This way streaming from Tidal is near useless to me and I have to go back to using the Tidal app with USB input. As I have purchased the Element X specifically to have a wireless streaming possibility this is quite a disappointment. So I would much appreciate if you could change these two behaviors in one of the next firmware versions.
Thanks a bunch in advance. Cheers, Urs
I also have the same experiences as above.
This apparently happens to high rez PCM files only, and not DSD files
