    You need a 3.5 to rca cable. Then set your mojo to line out. Hold volume buttons then power on device.

    also please use good quality 3.5 mm to rca cable...

    I would think this coding would be better placed on the bottom of the Mojo. Regardless, thank you for producing such an amazing sounding product.

    I like how you say please. :) Don't want to offend the audio gods do we?

    Does this make it so that the "Coax" port is line out or....

    I agree. It would look a lot better on the bottom near the label. However, I think the top piece is more difficult to copy and machine, etc.,  so that may be why it's there.

    The coaxial is a digital input, not a line out. Actually, you need to understand that the Mojo is using the line-out 100% of the time to drive headphones with the headphone outputs, and it's the only way to connect the Mojo to another piece of equipment. There is no separate amplifier to bypass in the Mojo. The line-out preset is simply a volume shortcut to 3V output. Don't worry about double amping because you aren't. You can read more about the Mojo's output stage in the third post - Rob has shared a lot of info about it.

    Curious what you are driving that you'll need to connect an external amplifier to the Mojo.

    Or, they are already lasering the top piece, and that end, so that makes it easier, too.

    Well, it's complicated. I have a Bifrost connected to my Asgard 2, but I prefer the Mojo. I would like to have the advantages of the Asgard 2 in my computer system (volume control for my speakers and headphones, also If i removed headphones from 1/4" port it switches to speakers) while also using the Mojo. Computer > Mojo > Asgard 2 > Nighthawks/Encore/TH-900MK2 OR JBL350 Monitors

    For anyone in france looking for a DAP to feed their Mojo, then audiophonics have 25% off the price of the Shanling M2

    and 30% of the price of the Fiio X3 ii, which brings it down to near the M1 price

    Or you can be patient, and wait for the SD module.

    I know tunes or tracks get recommended and put up here now and again. Anyway a rock track here called Living on a Knife Edge by from their 1981 Hawkwind album called Sonic Attack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlLE5XFDt0U
     
    I re-bought Sonic Attack just recently and have played it back to back so many times I lost count. The album Sonic Attack is equally as brilliant, however I omit the title track Sonic Attack, which is track one. I ripped it excluding that track, coz I not so keen.
     
    Also there is an extended version of this track here. Living on a Knife Edge (Extended Version). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nP8kEMoYIEQ
     
    On the album, the second track has copy voices all mixed together and it comes over excellent with Mojo. Even if the music is not your taste I think it has a lot to offer through the Chord Mojo.

    Hey guys, I just bought the He 560. I was wondering if the mojo alone would be good enough to power these comfortably or if I should consider purchasing an amp and use the mojo as a dac alone. Any advice and suggestions on an amp if required would be appreciated. Budget approx 200 usd.
    Thanks
