Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    the transparency wouldnt be my biggest worry it would be that X amplifier is adding colour to everything. i only use mojo because im happy with the variations in sound from album to album.
    i think its a reason many people dont like the HD650 with mojo, maybe they were using an amp that added more bass and impact on everything so without it they feel like it sounds "weak"

    Well the Mojo lacks extension both ways so it's not really neutral anyway... The timbre of it is what impresses me though. None of the paperyness of a Delta Sigma design.

    well in post 18704 Rob states that Mojo is delta sigma... :p
  4. Delayeed
    Anyway it's not a typical Delta Sigma design. Uses an FPGA chip instead of a ****ty off the shelf DAC chip. (not saying all off the shelf chips sound bad yada yada but you get the point.)

    Seems like a good example of real life suspension of disbelief.

    But don't tell the audiophiles that, they might explode.

    So does it sound more like high quality photo paper instead of a ream of Staples brand printer paper?

    I don't get the point. There are some very good chip based DAC/amp combos that are not outside the realm of being compared to Mojo.

    The point was just that I prefer timbre of the Mojo to the Delta Sigma DACs I've heard some of which have had weird treble issues that is best described by being "papery". And yes I'm aware there are good chip based DACs out there but with my limited exp I haven't heard one yet.

    Delayeed I understand what you meant, just wanted to point this out, since I believe many are not aware of the fact that Mojo is a Delta Sigma design...

    GRUMPYOLDGUY I think I should better stop then, I probably wouldn't stand as calm under fire, as you :wink:

    Mimouille told me 3 USB-C cables he's tried, 2 of which I've now added to a post somewhere in this thread (sorry, I can't quite remember the number [​IMG][​IMG])

    I think it needs to be clarified that Rob was indeed working on straight Delta sigma design some thirty years ago and realising their shortfalls he as been developing his pulse array technology and advanced digital tap algorithms and implementation of highly specialised digital noise shapers ever since. So it a bit like saying an alto saxophone is a tin wistle. Robs technology is now very far from its origins.

    You made some very good points here. Quite some people tend to misunderstand what role amps and DACs really play in an audio chain.

    HD650 might pop up so often, as for 15 years it is still some sort of a reference point in the huge, subjective fog of the audio world. We seem to loose these objective reference points these days. Maybe Mojo will be one in the future. :)

    But we know, his heart is in the right place. :)

    There is a Mojo sitting next to my laptop, right now, singing....

    I recently purchased the hd650s, and I really do like them, a lot. I've run it with mojo, and with mojo feeding my Valhalla 2. I prefer the sound of mojo feeding the Valhala 2. I think it does add to the sound. Maybe it's synergy, maybe not. It does sound better to my ears.

    Just received the notification that my Mojo is en route from Audio Sanctuary. Nice...!
    I've had a Hugo for a while, so I kind of know what to expect, and I've been following this thread since day 1, but still excited to get the little fella into my hands...
