You do realise I was discussing the old S-master when I remarked upon pathetic power output? I then conceded that I'm happy to see Sony have increased it in the newer iteration.       I still feel Sony used to produce great pocket audio devices in the 1990s, and have yet to better that sound quality in the 2010s (I have not held-on to 2 aging D-777s by accident), but charging huge prices seems to be their way of convincing themselves and a hardcore percentage of their...
  You're putting words into my mouth  I never said anything at all about Sabre EE/AKM/BurrBrown/Cirrus Logic. I have two 20yr old D-777 PCDPs that (to my ears) sound better than an S-Master chip, by a long, long way. If the new chip actually does what it's supposed to (reproduce music realistically), then great, but, if it sounds anything like the previous iteration of the chip, then Sony should hang their heads in shame, and either go back to the drawing board or go back...
  Well, at least they did something right.  Now, if only they'd also quit the obnoxious price-hiking and if only they'd quit using their awful S-Master chips, this might have been a potentially-relevant high-end DAP.      I'm sure you know it was mentioned 18 months or so, ago, but I agree it's been a relatively long time coming. It could easily have been implemented on the ZX2, but I feel Sony were just being lazy re-hashing the ZX1 into the ZX2 (in my...
   I understand your irritation, and I'm not dismissing it - but a little perspective on the situation is appropriate.  As any electronics engineer will tell you, signal processing makes power demands, and since Mojo has vastly more processing power than most DACs (portable or desktop), that inevitably has to come at some thermal cost. Why do you think notebooks dissipate so much heat? The trade-offs between processing power and heat-dissipation are a major challenge...
  Not to downplay the legitimacy of your irritation, but did you try turning Mojo on its edge? This makes a substantial difference to the efficiency of thermal radiation.
  From post #3 \ Detailed & in-depth Information on Mojo, by Rob Watts (Mojos designer) \ Informative posts by Rob Watts \ Is Mojo FPGA code the same as Hugo?:   [[SPOILER]]
  No, the current sub-$100 module does not include SD expansion or Bluetooth Aptx. That will be a much more complex module, and will inevitably cost substantially more. ETA is not yet known, as it is currently under intense development.

This may be of interest to some of you.
  I would anticipate RF susceptibility to be a far bigger differentiating factor, between different digital connection cable designs. What concerns me is people stating that 'silver has this effect upon the sound' of an analogue cable, and then intentionally or unintentionally transferring that belief and applying it to say 'silver has this (same) effect upon the sound' of a digital cable.  That's not directly aimed at Delayeed. My intention, here, is simply to inject a...
