    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    It does a pretty good job however there is notable congestion / lack of instrument separation as compared to Mojo, Opus#2 or Opus#3 all of which I currently own. At times the Fiio X5III gets a little overwhelming for me particularly due to this aspect.

    Thebit OPUS#2 Dap - out September/October 2016.

    Spotify streaming is working great. A few days ago I decided to return the Opus#3 unit I bought a couple of weeks ago after getting a great deal on a demo unit Opus#2 from a highly reputable dealer. I wasn't looking forward to losing the streaming capability but as luck would have it the new FW...

    ProStudio Sound & Music. Good point, will reach out to them. Thanks! Edit: Was fulfilled through Amazon however so maybe they won't be able to help. Will find out.

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Haven't spent much time with my Ether Flows lately... I've always loved Turn It Again by RHCP but it is a little busy and can be fatiguing. Decided to queue it up w/ my Mojo + Flows tonight and oh man these cans are just so smooth and can so effortlessly present the ridiculous layering in the...

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

      Glad to hear your replacement unit is a bit better. I definitely agree, claiming this is acceptable because there are other more appropriate use cases doesn't excuse the fact that playback during charging is not only a supported use case but an extremely common use case for just about every...

      Agreed. In particular those of us that have had Mojo units in the past that never did this know it isn't normal.

    Thanks Mike, currently I'm using the same Anker PowerLine USB cable and an Apple iPhone usb charger. I'll give the Anker PowerPort charger a shot and see how it goes.

      Nice, thanks. Please send me a PM (if you can remember) and let me know if that does the trick. If so I'm willing to buy the Anker PowerPort as well.

      I've tried 3 different charger and USB cable combinations. All three were used with my original Mojo without this issue.

      Is this an official solution from Chord? Their product can't charge and be used at the same time?

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

    So I repurchased Chord Mojo a couple months ago after selling my original unit and missing it. Unfortunately this new one has a terrible coil whine while charging, my original unit didn't do this. I reached out to Chord support and they assured me this is "normal" but I really wanted them to do...

      Would love to see something that prompts me to put my AK300 up for sale as a redundancy :)

      Certainly isn't a deal breaker and you're right, it's all about the sound

    Really wish they would have put this (laser fingerprint) on the bottom. I recently re-purchased Mojo after selling my original a few months ago and I'm pretty disappointed with how this looks.

      Seconded   Edit: My AK300 also drives both extremely well. Ether is not hard to drive at all.

    MrSpeakers ETHER C Review / Announcement - A New Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Flagship from MrSpeakers

    Thanks! I've not had an opportunity to listen via Mjolnir2, I bet it's amazing. I will say my Chord Mojo does a great job. I'd really like to hear from folks that own or have spent a significant time with both Flows (Open and Closed) to understand just how similar they sound. If they sound too...

      Thanks for the update Dan! Quick question for you on this though. Are you considering making any timeline/queue accommodations for those of us that bought old models just a few days/weeks prior to the flow launch?   Thanks as always, loving my open flows btw!!
