About Us

Matrix Audio is a high-fidelity digital audio brand established by a group of young people who are passionate about music and electronic technology. From their high-school days, the three founders would always get together to study DACs and amplifiers, share music and play musical instruments. In 2009 they got together once again and Matrix Audio was born.

After a decade of market testing, Matrix Audio has become a leading digital audio company, equipped with advanced research facilities and professional audio testing instruments. Matrix Audio has established an excellent brand and reputation both at home and abroad, by paying attention to the performance, function and build quality of products, while also focusing on the user experience and design. The Matrix team believes that revolution drives technological innovation. Not by following conventional paths, but by combining innovative thinking and operative technology, Matrix Audio aims to create amazing future products.
