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

    Give it a shot, i can't think of a reason why coax would sound inferior to optical. In my experience over the years and many, many, many devices, i always prefer coax over optical. Coax is an electrical signal and doesn't go through any conversion before reaching the DAC unlike optical which...

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

    I wish people would use the adjectives below to describe SQ differences and refrain from using the ones on the second list: 1. Significant 2. Noticeable 3. Marginal 4. Splitting hairs ‐-------------------------- 1. Night & day 2. World's apart 3. Jump out of your seat 4. The second coming of...

    Also, with USB you can pass DSD signals natively to the Mojo2. S/PDIF is limited to 192Khz/24-bit PCM.

    I don't get the white color when playing DSD64 files, any idea why? I use Audirvana set to DSD, no conversion to PCM through USB.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    Depends which headphone you compare it to. Is it full bodied? Not really but you can't have everything and no headphone is perfect.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I'm not surprised to hear that you prefer the HD800s + WA22 but i think it would be important to isolate the headphones from their respective chain and test them against each other on the same amp. I would be interested to know which headphone you prefer driven from the Ifi Ican Signature. If...

    NAD M51 Direct Digital DAC Impressions

    While you're at it, check the polarity setting, in my case i get slightly more bass impact with the reverse setting selected. Edit: ^This could vary depending which firmware you're running. I'm on 1.39

    Are you running the M51 at 0dB? If so try reducing the output to -3dB or -6dB.

    Thank you so much BS5711, this is very valuable info and i appreciate the supporting photos. My next step will be to test the adapter with a different source to see if i can make it work with the Mojo. Again, a BIG thank you for your help!

    Then i dont understand why the adapter is not working for me. Meanwhile, the more i research this the more i find all kinds of other pin out configurations for the Mojo's coaxial input, below is just another example. I don't know what to try next.

    Mytek Liberty DAC II discussion + impression

    You're probably right that 4.8V refers to the balanced output leading me to believe the single ended output is 2.4V

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

    So i decided to try the coax input and ordered this adapter based on my understanding (from what i read) that the tip of the 3.5mm end is the signal but it doesn't work. I really thought this was the correct pin out. Any thoughts? Edit: Not trying to connect to a DAP, trying to connect to a...

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    Yes, you're absolutely right in the case of the HE1k. My comment was in response to the photo showing headphones with the cups tilted upwards in the link you provided. I was just trying to point this out as a potential problem for anyone using this stand with different headphones. We're good 😊

    Great looking stand but i prefer having a vertical center column for the pads to rest against otherwise dust falls directly onto the exposed drivers.

    The Woo Audio 2

    You should be able to avoid the loud pops by turning on the WA2 first, followed by the power amp a few seconds later and reverse the sequence during power off; turn off the power amp first, then turn off the WA2 a few seconds later.
