    Anybody using the Mojo with a Sony Xperia X Performance?
    I recently made the switch from Iphone 5s to Android and thought using USB DAC´s with Android was easy (maybe it is), but I have found no way to get the phone to recognize the Mojo as a DAC. Just installed USB Audio Player Pro and it doesnt recognize the Mojo either. I have searched the phone settings menu without finding anything regarding OTG.
    The Mojo plays audio through Tidal and the phone´s music app, but the point is of course to stream bit perfect and "untouched" audio files to it.
     
    Thanks for any help!
     
    Edit: by the way I´m using the Moon Audio Black Dragon formfit OTG cable.

    It can use a 200Gb SD card, so that is interesting.
     
    Simple questions first:
    1 - is the phone OTG enabled? OTG is required to work with external DACs.
    2 - are you using an OTG cable? OTG cable is required.
    3 - if 2 is yes, then have you plugged the correct end into your phone? OTG cables are directional, in that one plug has 4 pins connected, and the other has 5 pins connected. The correct plug must be connected into your phone.

    Mate 8 connects the Mojo to every music app.

    Thanks for your input!
     
    Now this is a head scratcher: I just tried connecting them once more, and now (5th attempt maybe?) the Mojo suddenly was recognized as a USB unit and the USB Audio Player Pro works like a charm. The Moon Audio cable seems to work fine both ways (tried switching it around).
    I made no changes in the phone´s settings menu. Something magical just happened automatically:)

    Sometimes things need to be done in a specific sequence, in order to recognise the dac and establish the signal connection.

    I found with my Z5 that they had to be plugged in and switched on in a certain order for it to work.

    Is there a significance with having no optical. I assume Optical will do bitperfect. Are you postulating whether it will run bitperfect through micro-USB? Or do you know it won't please?
     
    EDIT: I am googling, "how to get android phone to play bit perfect through usb".
     
    (Please note I did go to the third post. To see if I could find a link to determine what a phone needs to run the Mojo and bitperfect. I didn't find a link. I am looking again.)
     
    I am sort of on the lookout for a phone for myself. I only have a very old handset that is not capable of storing any files really. I would like a newer phone with a better camera. My attention was caught by this one because Which? said it has excellent battery life. That's why I put it up here to hopefully get some ideas, for me or anyone else looking.
     
    In the end though I think I am waiting for the SD-card module, but I don't know. It may be a ridiculously expensive module. Plus I still really sort of want a new phone. Talk about being indecisive.

    Thanks to both of you. Yes that definitely seems to be the case here. Couldn´t find an answer to my issue on the internet, but you can always trust the knowledge of Head-Fi:)

    Read the section 'starting the app'

    The links to a lot of useful UAPP info are found in post #3

    oops defined! I know sorry I often press the button too early without checking what I'd just written

    Wow - a while ago.
     
    Gumby for dedicated (3 or 4 amplifiers, and having multiple analog and XLR outputs assists with this), Mojo for everything else - Mojo even for the occasional local meet, where the pain of traveling with a UPS is too much. And definitely Mojo for travel.

    Some Mojo eye candy for the thread.
