    Chord Electronics ☆ Poly ☆ (wireless & microSD module for Mojo) ☆★►USEFUL INFO on 1st PAGE!!◄★☆

    + 1 Phil.   Finally people are finding some clarity about the intentions and benefits of this well thought-out device. In 18 months I believe we will be seeing 1TB micro SD cards. Until then i'll happily live with 200GB which is a VFM bang for buck card IMO.   Apart from lack of 5GHz WiFi, I...

    Chord Electronics - CES Launch Extravaganza

      With subjectivity in play how can I answer that properly. I haven't heard Poly, or many of the other options for starters. Of course there are cheaper options, I'm not one of the many complaining of the price as such, although I can see why people are questioning what is considered an add-on...

    Chord Electronics - CES Launch Extravaganza

    + 1.   For a cheaper solution. In fact there are many options given Poly's spec. I will be buying Poly to see how much it benefits me.    If I can have 1TB of music in my rucksack while traveling, and control the library easily, even better via my iWatch - it's a winner. Not cheap though...

    Chord Electronics - CES Launch Extravaganza

    Wireless external HDD, thus creating your own WiFi on the move? Have it stashed away in your rucksack and you can have 1-2TB of music at your mercy. This would be an option, and one I will strongly consider, unless I find 200GB is enough for me by means of an SD card.

    Indeed. It would be nice if I can control it with my iWatch, which is what I currently do, and works very well I add.    Please put me down for one Phil. :)

    Chord Electronics ☆ Poly ☆ (wireless & microSD module for Mojo) ☆★►USEFUL INFO on 1st PAGE!!◄★☆

    I think they have overpriced this thing by £200, IMO. I will still buy one but i'm still thinking of ways i'll use it with Poly, see what I think, then see what the word is on the Hugo 2 and move from there. I use Mojo on the go most of the time but do have active speakers in most rooms of my...

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    +1. Had mine several months and struggle to take them out of my ears. I have CIEM Encore being built and will report my findings. Will the Encore dig as deep as the Dulce Bass? That is the question. I am sure they will excel in every other dept, but honestly how can the bass get better? They're...

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    Listening/comparing the Dulce Bass with a Mojo and TT this evening. I was ready to part with the Mojo until I read the announcement by Chord. As such i'm holding onto it to see what it released.    Both combos are delightful and I must say, Noble are a brand i'll be sticking with. I have...

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

    Mojo is a dream with not only my HD25, but also my Noble Dulce Bass. Both are superb (Custom Encore ordered ;) ). Not many will buy into the HD25 combo but it rocks. That said, Noble is an improvement on them, especially in the bass department, but I cannot part with the HD25 - also great for...

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    glad i got my order in for the dulce bass before the hike. people should be complaining to the people that voted for Brexit. and, if Trump gets in, expect price increases in the US from Noble - he has all intentions of any contracting work outside the US (Noble using China for instance) to be...

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    I must have had over 10 various pressings/masterings of Aja, starting with the original CD which is good. But my go to is the 1st press US ABC Vinyl. If you drop me a PM, i'll happily guide you with how to "procure" one although it seems you have this album covered. Either way, the offer is...

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    There are no rules, often mastering can be a matter of taste. I have kept a few copies of certain albums that sound great in their own unique way and until I know which i'm getting the most satisfaction from, and in which case i'll keep both.    Vinyl pressings are normally best from the...

    Introducing the New Classic Universal Line from Noble

    I will report my findings with the Dulce Bass in a few days. I am trying them with a bare iPhone 6S, Mojo and Hugo. I purchased them for the gym when I listen to my german techno.   Bought from Audio Sanctuary (were Custom Cables) in the UK. Great guys to deal with.    If I like them (they...

    New Dragonfly Black and Red Discussion

    Unless you do not have a single USB port, or maybe a PC that is 20 years old, there is no reason why you cannot use ANY of the DFs. This applies to the previous gens too !

    New Dragonfly Black and Red Discussion

    What on earth are you talking about? Only now, have the recent Dragonfly DACs become mobile phone friendly.    You can plug any DF into ANY computer, be it PC or Mac, route the audio to it, and assuming you have headphones connected, you will hear sound. Mobile phones, are mini computers...

    New Dragonfly Black and Red Discussion

    This is pretty my experience. I keep both as I can't bring myself to sell either but I sure find it hard to tell much difference between them. Yes, the Mojo has the slightest of edges towards ounding better, a better insight into the music but i'm talking about the smallest of margins possible. ...

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

    I have had the Mojo for several months now and love it. I use a TT in my desktop rig, and Mojo for around the house. Often pairing with Senn HD25s. After some time post Mojo purchase, I realised I wanted something a bit more portable, so pulled the trigger on a AQ RED Dragonfly.    Interesting...

    New Dragonfly Black and Red Discussion

    I have both and agree with many others. Mojo offers more realism and air compared to the Dragonfly Red. I was going to shift one but truth be told they're both so good I cannot bring myself to part with either. Hugo TT for desktop use, Mojo and Dragonfly for my frequent flying/travelling.    ...

    iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Audio Quality

        Buy the AudioQuest DragonFly Black or Red DAC/HPA. Its a tiny DAC, same size as a USB stick and sounds very very good, not too far behind the chord Mojo but much smaller. It also gives you much more volume. This was the main reason I bought this DAC, it gives much more headroom, also added...

    New Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd generation

    See the third post on the very first page of this thread. Scroll down until you see 'Connecting Mojo to iDevices (Click to show)' - click on this, you will then see dropdown menu which will then link to all the cable providers. I recommend Lavricables. Excellent service.    Hope this helps. If...

    iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Audio Quality

    I have the Lightening to Micro from Lavricables that you refer to, very happy with it. The sound is fine, cannot say it makes a huge difference but if there is it's certainly for the better. I highly recommend Lavricables, they're a pleasure to do business with.   I'm wondering whether to buy...

    New Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd generation

    Chord Mojo is excellent for flying. The sound of which is quite remarkable with an iPhone assuming your files are lossless and well mastered material, note you need a CCK or buy a cable listed on the first page, 3rd post like myself and you don't need the CCK.    Failing that, the AudioQuest...

    Reply to review by 'pedro dixon' on item 'Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone'

    Ben Klock will not use anything else. He often plays for 18 hours or more. Nina Kravitz is also a user just to name a few.

    iPhone 6s Sound Quality

    you should. I haven't heard the bitfrost but there is a strong consensus online that that Mojo cannot be beaten for less then £1000. I had high expectations, on the back of threads such as this one and in no way am I disappointed. I would describe it as being very neutral, musical and gives a...

    iPhone 6s Sound Quality

    Possibly. But with expectation bias etc, I wouldn't like to give a firm yes. But after reading your post I picked up my iPhone and listened to a track I had just stopped listening to 30 mins prior, could sound better IMO, certainly no complaints. If anything i'm happy my Mojo and AQ Red DAC...
