Size wize the Mojo is nearly identical in size to the AK100.  Yes, a case from Chord will be very nice. I personally think that Chord will sell many Mojo so a 3rd party case makers better begin their production soon.

Here's the carrying case I bought today at the awesome B&H Photo super-store in Manhattan (it's a toy store for geeks like me) - 

 

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/681222-REG/Lowepro_LP36227_0AM.html

 

 

It's sized almost perfectly for carrying the Mojo (105mm x 65mm x 20mm interior dimensions versus the Mojo's 82mm x 60mm x 22mm) and it is made by Lowe Pro, the brand I've entrusted to protect most of my expensive camera for the last 30 years. 

 

Regarding a real "skin" case (which you can use while the Mojo is being played) we'll have to wait for someone to custom build such a thing and also ensure that it can handle the Mojo's operating temperature. 

 

Cheers

You know what...I bought that exact same case awhile back on a clearance for 1 dollars from Fry's and had yet to even use it. Let me see if it is the same size.

Awesome. Pictures please of the two together!

If anyone was wondering if the Mojo worked with an Uptone Audio Regen in the chain, mine finally arrived today and I'm giving it a go right now :)

Awesome! Assume you have a USB A to USB Micro adapter?

post #1117 of 26794
Can anyone do a comparison on each input - coaxial, usb, optical - and which sounds best .thanks,
post #1118 of 26794
All of them are well implemented. Don't really hear much difference between them. If I were to pick one I'd say USB, but I'm not sure how much of that is my own expectation bias or not. Coaxial is really good too. Listened through optical but not for long.

Just using the little cable that came with the Mojo and an Audioquest Carbon A to B cable for the other bit.  I'm using it with my computer right now since I'm waiting on a 6" Moon Silver Dragon toslink to mini toslink to use it with the AK240.

Just found this. Am going to try one since it's only ~$5 shipped. Cheers

Was wondering this myself. While I was at B&H today I took the opportunity to look at Android phones, but not as phones but instead as transports. So looked at cheap units that had microSD slots. Found some phones (e.g. BLU units) for less than $100, but then when you add in the price of a 128 to 200gb card and the OTG cable you're still talking about ~$250-300. Think I'll just stick with my trust Fiio X3 and run coax for now, unless anyone can show me how the Android via OTG USB is going to be better SQ-wise (know it will be better than Fiio's X3 UI, but that's not that high of a bar). Cheers

Honestly coaxial is just fine, unless you're a DSD fananatic as the FiiO DAPs won't output DSD over coaxial.

For me I hear no difference when I convert a DSD track to 24/96 PCM. The FiiO DAPs output DSD as 24/88.2 PCM over coaxial.

Thanks again Relic. Do you have a dedicated 75 Ohm 3.5mm male mono to 3.5mm male mono coax cord?

I'll have to give it a few days to really know.  I wasn't having any issues with it to begin with.  I'd got it for my Uberfrost as I think its proximity to a bunch of my other electronics was causing some noise to be introduced.  I used it with the Uberfrost for an hour or two and noticed an improvement.  Only listened to 1 or 2 songs with the Mojo to test if it worked.  I'll listen more after the Giants game is over.
