    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    I do, but have to run the source PC off of battery power due to the Mojo's lack of galvanic isolation. Despite running amp, preamp and PC off of adjacent outlets, I get very audible digital noise leaking into the system from anything directly connected to the PC.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Does anyone know a way to stream ISO files in native format to an iOS device to a DAC such as the Mojo over the Internet? The closest I've come is at home using foobar and its DLNA server to 8player, but SACD ISO files are all played back at 44.1 kHz and I am unable to find the server at all...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Nope.  No sound with any of the DSD: ASIO options or the Chord WASAPI push or event options while set to output DSD.  Switching over to PCM it continues to work great.  I'm beginning to think maybe something is wrong with mine.  I will try Jriver but just to rule that out.  Thanks though!

    Chordette Gem Bluetooth DAC. A Review With Pictures.

    I guess I misunderstood what this device does. It's not a transmitter and receiver pair, the antenna is just to facilitate bluetooth communication with an an A2DP device? I ask because I've got a prototype TX/RX pair in hand that will push uncompressed 32-48 kHz 16-bit audio up to 300 feet in...

    Need help on eagle software

    I don't see your problem, but don't use Eagle anyway. Still, you could really stand to use the copper pour function on that board of yours. Stu

    DAC compatible with AK4381 ?

    Use ChipQuik. The chip and the pads should both survive. Stu

    How come solder no longer sticks to iron?

    The reason you don't want to sand your iron tips is they have often have an iron cladding on them that will be removed if you sand. Stu
