    I currently have a number of fantastic products on my desk, and given this interesting opportunity to directly compare some products that are usually not something many will have heard, and if they have, will likely have heard on different systems, I wanted to do just that. Compare in a direct...

    Chord Mojo upgrade from Sony PHA-3

    Hi guys, I am currently using my Senn HD800 with Sony PHA-3, so far I do enjoy it. I’ve been wanting to buy something from Chord for a while due to their high reputation for extraordinary quality. Hugo 2 is somewhat overpriced for my budget right now, I am leaning more towards Mojo and Poly. The...

    Hugo 2 vs Modi Multibit

    Hello, I hope I am posting in the correct location. I was listening to my Fulla 2 as a DAC/amp, and A/Bing it with a Modi Multibit. I could not hear a discernible difference between them. I could not tell if it was a bias or if one was better or worse, almost completely identical. I do not know...

    Focal Utopia - What amp/dac to use?

    I recently purchased my end-game, the Focal Utopia's. It is an absolutely lovely headphone, definitely better than anything I have ever had before. But it isn't perfect.

    Have Chord Mojo paired w/ Fostex TH-X00 @ home. Keep or change to Massdrop Liquid Carbon X or something else?

    So I currently have a Chord Mojo driving the Fostex TH-X00. One thing I notice that that while it drives it nicely, compared to my previous Xduoo xd-05 DAC, I feel the Mojo lacks a bit on the thumping bass end. So the question is this. Should I change to this Liquid Carbon X SDAC and sell my...

    Music Server vs. ripped files on a computer? Sonic benefits?

    As the title says, am I missing something by just using ripped files on my computer as opposed to using a dedicated music server like an Aurender or an Innuos/Zenith? (FYI, I use a Chord DAVE and a Windows PC with external solid state drives for my music storage.) Thanks.

    Chord Qutest | Gumby | Gustard X-22 - DAC Recommendation

    Hey team... Thinking about a DAC upgrade. Will feed a Deckard amp via analogue input, upgrade will be a Schiit Audio Mjolnir (or Lyr 3 if I fail at saving) paired with Audeze LCD-X. Source is Tidal via USB for the most part. Thoughts on Schiit Audio Gungnir Multibit v Chord Qutest v Gustard...

    Chord Hugo M Scaler

Seems like a big leap forward in computer audio with same benefits as Chord Blu MkII in terms of upscaling, less CD...

    A streaming module meant to be attached with mojo. Horrible quality in built and execution. Constant drop outs, bad customer service from Chord. No app support for Android , even after a full year on the market. It's bent, poor battery life, locks up, freezes. No file control support via...

    Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why R2R kind of sucks - just to get you to think about stuff)

    I am 38 years old and a child of the 80s. While I played around with vinyl a little, I grew up on CDs. I want my digital music to sound like digital music - not analog. I like my music to sound "Hi-Fi". I don't think that's a dirty word. I am learning to avoid devices that are described as...
