I hope I can find somebody who owned or listened to these two streamers/dac. 
I'm ready to purchase a one box streamer/dac and I think these two are both great choices. 
At the moment I'm using a BlueSound Node 2i as a pure streamer connected via Coax to a Matrix Audio X-Sabre Pro Dac. All connected to a McIntosh MA7900 and to a pair of Martin Logan Ethos (electrostatic panels). 
I use both Qobuz and Tidal Mqa and this is the reason of the "move" I want to make. Tidal just released a huge number of albums in Mqa from the Warner label. 
As I want to proper listen to them I found the Lumin T2 and the Matrix Element X can be valid choices: one box solution for streaming and Mqa Dac. 
A Lumin T2 used has the same cost of a new Matrix Element X. 
BUT the Element X works with the ESS 9038Pro chip while the Lumin T2 with the ESS9028Pro chip. 
Any thought on Your side that might help me make the right purchasing decision?

So I'm in exactly same place as you as per this post.  Any conclusions?  Are we assuming the Matrix X is great the Lumin even better?  Any differences in functionality since there is a difference in price? Thanks for any light you can shed!
