    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    People who love sound don't all want to open up their gear. Those that do are a minority, and that's OK. Everyone has different ways of doing things. All I care about is the end result. Does it sound good with my gear. Yes, great. Then I'll sit back on my recliner and listen to my favourite...

    Burson Playmate 2 (3W, ESS9038 DAC, Pre amp, DSD512, USB-C, toslink)

    I blame everyone here 😆 I was very happy with my Playmate 2, but so many of you told me to change the opamps. So I did :) And here's my thoughts 😀

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    My review of the iFi Go Bar and then versus Gold Bar and then compared to the Mojo 2. 18 minus long. Any questions, I'll try and answer them.

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    It is so much fun comparing all three. I have a few more genres of music to listen to and then I will be in a better position to start drawing my conclusions.

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    2 days listening to the Go Bar, Gold Go Bar and mojo 2 so far. Multiple headphones. Around 12 hours listening time so far. Early impressions are very positive. I can't wait to pick a winner though out of these three :)

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    Received the Go Bar and the Gold Go Bar, going to have some fun comparing to the Mojo 2 as well. My first gripe, as mentioned by a few others, is to update the firmware you need a Windows computer, of which I don't have, mac all the way. So infuriating. So I had to ask my neighbour if I could...

    Sony LinkBuds WF-l900

    I bought a pair and tried to be as objective as possible. Will answer all questions here. If you weren't sure about these, hopefully I've covered off everything. Also, I waited to review once I got the new firmware, and in addition the Sony headphone app got updated to support them, which I...

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    Thanks for your feedback, appreciated. I would say the quality is better on both. I powered my Sennheiser HD 600 and HiFiman Arya (Stealth Magnets) just fine. I've not used the Dan Clarke Noire so maybe someone else can comment.

    Yes. Press menu button once. Press vol down to dim. Press volume down again to increase brightness.

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    Some interesting posts from everyone. I’m heavy into my testing of the Chord Mojo 2 whilst comparing it to the Gryphon and Xduoo XD05 Bal. I’m planning to publish my review & comparison at 3pm UK time on Sunday. I’ll answer every question afterwards.

    It is unbalanced only. Rob Watts explained why the unbalanced is better audio quality in this further back in this thread.

    I don’t recall one either with mine. I’m going to screenshot the manual & print the specific pages.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I’ll just swap to 4.4mm cables when switching to the Gryphon & Xduoo. I don’t want to introduce any interference into the process. I’ll get an extra pair of hands to help me speed the process up.

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    I’m listening to the Mojo 2 with a vast selection of headphones, but it proving messy to compare to the Gryphon and Xduoo XD-05 Bal as I was using 4.4mm balanced cables with them. I have had to change everything to 3.5mm unbalanced. Has anyone got an idea how to swap cables fast? My verdict on...

    Should receive my Mojo 2 tomorrow. Going to have some fun comparing it with my iFi Gryphon & Xduoo XD-05 Bal (with Burson V5i-D op amps). I sense a huge review video.

    For everyone whose posting disrespectful comments about people who mentioned the disappointment over micro usb, please stop. If it wasnt important to those that mentioned it, it wouldn’t have been posted by them. The fact that many people have mentioned it, and not just a few, shows that it does...

    It’s 8am in the UK. I imagine their offices open around 9am. Hopefully nobody is isolating due to covid. So they probably need to make the coffees first, check their emails, make sure their website has extra bandwidth before opening up orders around lunchtime today.

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    Just catching up on the posts. I really liked the original Mojo. But if the rumours are true that the Mojo 2 charges by micro usb, I don’t care how good it might sound, it’s not on my list to buy. I only have one device now that uses micro usb and that’s a 5 year old Sony camera, that’s due to...
