You Guys/M8's are going to get me into trouble!!!
It's actually good to see the design and engineering team reply instead of a sales guy. Definitely tilted me towards the Mojo and inspires confidence and good discussion.
I remember being on the phone with Dan when the original Maddog was launched and it was good to chat with him. He was getting his car washed and ended up buying multiple items due to Dan's input.
Might be looking at Dave for a electrostatic speaker setup......
As said the Mojo really wants a minimum of 1A on its charging circuit. I think USB 3.0 supplies 1A, but I didn't check that.
Or you could try able that feeds two USB ports into one micro-USB. Thus combining 2 x 0.5A, from two USB 2.0 ports. Then you'd need a third USB port for audio data of course.
Thanks for this very informative post.
1. It confirms the possibility to act on +5V VBUS wire to select/unselect Mojo's USB port in a desktop usage.
2. It explains why consumption is slightly lower when USB Audio is plugged.
Not sure if this specific solution has been posted but I got the Mojo about a month ago, using my S7 Edge phone as a source along with a 7cm OTG cable (http://www.ebay.com/itm/291627246005), and was getting frequent noise problems, I almost returned it, as airplane mode is not a viable solution, nor was I going to buy a separate DAP to stack with my Mojo and then carry my phone as well.
My best shot was this cable from Lavricables (http://m.ebay.com/itm/182092841149?_trksid=p2056016.l4276&_mwBanner=1), and as hesitant as I was to pay $75 for a cable, lo and behold it worked! No noise, crystal clear sound, compact solution (I considered ferrite chokes but then I'd have to get a longer cable and there goes the portability I wanted).
Can't recommend it enough if you're suffering from noise issues.
Actually optical is the lowest power - the USB decoder chip is about 1/3 W and is turned off when VBUS is low.
I am fairly new to the audiophile world and need some advice if someone could help me out. I have a pair of westone um pro 20 and was wondering if i would get any improvement from the chord mojo? I have heard that um pro 20 didnt need a dac but bever thought to ask if i did have one would i hear improvement. Thx in advance!
@Mython and all - I have contacted Jeffrey from Dyson, got a quote and invoice which I have paid immediately (Aug. 3), but still have not heard back from!
I have tried pinging Jeffrey every 3-4 days in the last 2 weeks, but total radio silence
At this point - I am not sure what seems to be the problem. I would highly recommend to remove (for now) the link and info on Dyson...
I will keep everyone posted if and when I hear back from Dyson. At some point - I will dispute the charge, but for now - still giving Jeffrey the benefit of the doubt.
It sounds like a very small business, and there could be a reasonable explanation. Fingers still crossed to get my X3II to Mojo cable...
I'm sorry to hear things aren't going smoothly with your Dyson cable transaction.
I have zero affiliation with the individual or the company, but I can honestly say you are the first person I have heard of, having any (potentially) negative experience with them.
I will place a temporary warning in post #3, but not actually remove it, at this stage, since there may be a legitimate reason for your situation.
All the best with your transaction, and please let us know what eventually happens.
Just checked on eBay, he is no longer registered on eBay either.
I am really glad that the 3rd post was not removed as contemplated earlier. I stay up to date on this thread, but that meticulous guide is still a great help. Stellar stuff.
OK, thankyou - that does cast a different light on the situation. In that case, the product link is now null & void, so I will go ahead and remove the Dyson info from post #3
Zachik, I hope you still get your cable or your money back.
Hmmm.... before deleting it, I just tried the homepage https://www.dysonaudio.com/ and it's still live...
For all we know, the guy could be having an emergency. The last many feedback for his eBay store has been all negative with buyers claiming that they never heard back from him. I am guessing that eBay might have tried contacting him and must have suspended his store when they did not hear back from him. Regardless, I am going to remove all the links or reference to his store from all my posts.
