I received mine yesterday too. It is a nice little dac+amp but soundwise it is not that special compared to my good old geek out 1000. The differences are nearly zero and for me it is not worth to spent 600€. Maybe my ears are not good enough to hear the improvements :wink:.
I'm happy to have paid the 600 euros and I hope that Rob Watts will be able to drink a beer of the royalties that he will have.

Looking through the online manual I cant see a reference to a line level mode, unlike the Mojo where it is activated by pressing the two volume buttons simultaneosly. I have three questions:-
1. Is this an omission in the manual?
2. Is the Mojo 2 not designed to be used through an amplifier and speakers?
3. If it can, what is the output voltage, or is this controlled by the volume buttons?
Thanksn

Just received my Mojo and (had) been enjoying it this morning. However 3 times in the space on an hour I've been hit with ear piercing white noise!!! Have to restart the Mojo 2 to stop it. Anyone else having this issue? It's happened twice connected to my iPad Pro and once connected to my Mac.

Check the presentation Rob Watts shared about the Mojo 2, there he states that Line Out preset was dropped and explains why.
Short version: Mojo 2 is even better suited to run as a system DAC, and like with the original Mojo, yes, the volume buttons control the output voltage.

What sort of headphones did you use to test mojo 2 ? Once you dive into dac/amp area changes becomes subtle compared against differences between various headphones, but these subtle changes can make a huge difference on certain headphones. I could easily tell OG mojo apart from my desktop equipment or a dap player using Utopias, but with budget IEM I felt a bit lost

Great, so it's possible to disconnect the battery. I must admit that I have not come across this connector before. All you have to do is lever the plug on the front.

Here's how the connector latches (assuming that this is what the mojo 2 uses):

I just remember 6,7 years ago with Mojo OG wondering what exactly did i pay for, contributed zero soundwise, im definitely not being negative, genuinely want to hear what others are praising so much, I don't hear it.. let's see this time, with some bass shelf maybe..

Kinda sounds like you’re being negative 🙄 especially after your “audiofools” comment and your 5 totl dongles.

Well, i think it's fair to say it as i hear it, especially that i have so much gear, i did hear H2 and there was difference soundwise, not my thing, prefer dap with C9, Mojo was a blank space in the chain for me

How interesting. I find the difference night and day. The original was “closed in” and flat 2D sounding. New one paints a complete soundstage. Luckily that was the factor I missed most in OG. I’d suggest your headphones are not up to the job which will therefore save you $600!

Sorry, wasn't comparing old and new as I haven't heard it yet, was saying OG didn't make any difference to my chain back then
