    Chord 2Go & 2Yu Wired/Wireless Network streamer and S/PDIF adaptor - Official thread

    Might as well call it Small 4Tune because that's what it'll cost.

    Whatever happened to that guy rutter (sic?). Board took on an entirely different personality when he complained about everything under the sun and plus some. Smart guy but had a lot of issues. Btw, Neutron updated their android app to support DX220: “Filter and gain support”

    Was using A1MK2 until yesterday when i received A9. Running a little less warm than A1MK2. Battery life is definitely better. Cable is ALO Superlitz 2.5mm balanced to PW 3.5mm adapter in case anyone wants to try to recreate.

    Just received it yesterday...so probably about five hours total. Was totally expecting the hiss and was willing to live with it...seemed like a foregone conclusion after reading so much about it here. But nothing.

    I have the same setup but on high gain - no hiss. Have Solaris 2.5mm balanced going to 3.5mm adapter (PW Audio) into DX229. No hiss.

    Yes. Works seamlessly on iPhone X to H2. Need good core processing power to upsample DSD 256/512

    @Whitigir is a magician with these cables

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Yes. From 200-500 hrs, sound is still changing, though not as perceptibly as 0-200 hrs. It becomes more refined.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    After burning in (500+ hours) on 3.5mm SE, do I need to do the same on the balanced 4.4mm?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Good news that they fixed the lag...although it wasn't bothersome to me once you get use it.  All I want now is Parametric EQ...which is probably a pipe dream.   Can someone recommend a pair of headphones sound signature-wise to the Fostex TH900 MKII (bass/treble) but superior.  Don't want...

    Anyone have any luck pairing Sony Remote Commader (NWS20) with WM1A/Z in the US?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    the 4.4mm output can do all that over the 3.5mm?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Any drawbacks going with adapter system in terms of impact to sound quality (amp connection is switchable).  Of course non-contiguous flow is never good but can't imagine I'd be able to hear it.

    Where can I get some 4.4MM for my Focal Elears?

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    Much more body and a little more soundstage on the Elear vs TH900.  Both are very fun to listen to...agree with statement the mids are more upfront with the Elear.

    Focal Elear + Chord Mojo are an excellent combination

    Fostex TH900 MkII

    One of the most beautiful headphones i've ever seen.  I have a pair myself.

    Popular Classical Music

    From an overall perspective, what would you guys say is the best Beethoven Symphonies 1-9?  Leibowitz/Royal Philharmonic (1961)? Rattle?  Gunter Wand?  Karajan?

    iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Audio Quality

    You're 0/2 in your assumptions thus far.  Don't use IEMs, headphone is Fostex TH900 MKII.  Your other points were addressed nicely in subsequent post so will not perpetuate this any longer than it needs to because it is already bordering ridiculous.

    Update my original post. In addition to correcting some typos, I've included pics of the new USB C Lightning kit.  Here's the link to Apple web site:   http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MK0W2/lightning-to-usb-3-camera-adapter?fnode=37

    iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Audio Quality

    Couldn't agree with you more. iPhone 6S is an excellent transport and holds its own against mid-fi DAPs. However, where you'll see a dramatic increase is when it is paired with Mojo - while using third party app such as Neutron. It acts as a pass-through. It does drain battery at a rapid clip. A...

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

    That's the first cable I bought when I received my Mojo.  In addition to it being very stiff,the connector was a little loose so I returned it and went with the Moon Audio cable ($115),  The Moon was cleaner sounding that the Cinnamons.
