    Chord Mojo Battery Cheap Fix

    So the battery on my Chord Mojo died. No surprise, eh? I read how people are running them with no battery or spending a fortune on repairs. I'm a think-out-of-the box person and I came up with a cheap fix. I sourced a battery on Amazon that was 7.4V, 2200mA and 16.3 Wh and only $16.49. It is...

    Hello, I have read several different comparisons between the 2 dacs, but I am puzzled at some of the information that I have read. Some users claim that the Mojo offers a sound that is comparable, or even better than that of the Hugo Chord 2. I live in a rural area where there are no hi end...

    Power output of Chord Mojo on max volume

    I bought a pair of Audeze LCD-XC and I just love the thease headphones. (Previously I had an Opp PM-3). The dealer also suggested to buy a Chord Mojo, and it seems that it smoothens the sound, but not much difference compared to the MacBook. Anyway, I was happily living with both until last...

    I have managed to acquire my dream audio player second hand in the form of an Astell & Kern AK380. I’m finding the bass and overall ‘oomph’ in the music played to be missing e.g. Sting, INXS and modern soul and funk. A friend of mine connected his Chord Mojo to it using a Micro USB to Micro...
