  If you look in post #3, you'll find some cables which are made by removing the MFI chip from a genuine Apple CCK, and then resoldering the MFI chip into a bespoke cable which has a Lightning connector on one end, and a MicroUSB connector on the other - this means you can avoid using the Apple CCK, so you can get away with using only 1 neat cable, rather than the CCK and a microUSB cable.
  Correct. www.head-fi.org/t/784602/chord-mojo-the-official-thread-please-read-the-3rd-post/13575#post_12428765
  OK, so the next obvious step for you to (cheaply) try, is 1 or 2 ferrite RF-chokes on your USB OTG cable. See if you can tell any difference!    Also, I don't know how experienced you are, so forgive me for mentioning it, but do please be sure you're not accidentally upsampling the data signal on the phone, before it gets sent to Mojo.
LOL - I don't claim to grasp all the technicalities, but it seems, to my limited understanding, that the original ADC isn't accurate, anyway, so unless one improves both the recording/mastering ADC and the playback DAC, even an 'infinite'-tap or 'infinite'-interpolation DAC will only address half of the problem of reconstructing an analogue waveform, from a digital recording, in a truly accurate manner.   Am I missing something?   Incidentally, this is veering into...
  Let's hope they actually update the silicon, this time, instead of smearing lipstick on an old product, as they did with the ZX1, to make the ZX2.  I hope you enjoy your new CIEMs, when they are completed - please let us know how they sound, when you receive them
 Are you sure? LOL
  You may need to experiment a little, but please read the related posts about 'Setting-up Foobar', in post #3 for some pointers That section isn't as detailed as I'd like, but I'm not a Foobar expert, so I add bits to it, as and when I see anything useful cropping-up in this thread.
 James has mentioned they are considering that. Anyway, as I said, I think there is plenty of room in the market for both Chord and Fiio, and I really don't view the situation, on the transport side of things, as directly-competitive; only on the DAC side, and there are numerous competing DACs on the market, anyway!  Because the Chord add-ons are (AFAIK) being developed exclusively for use with Mojo (directly-attaching to Mojos ports and chassis), the only proportion of...
  On the 'transport' side of things, I really don't see it as direct competition, but that's just my opinion I think there's definitely room in the market for both, although I understand Fiio's apparent nervousness about how small or large the 'digital transport' niche actually might be. Fiio are talking about needing a firm 10,000 backers, minimum, to proceed. Mojo has already sold close to 3 times that, so it'll be interesting to see how many Mojo customers buy into the...
