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

Discussion in 'Portable Source Gear' started by Mython, Oct 14, 2015.

    I've had my Chord Mojo for a few days now. With proper charger everything is silent. The Mojo build is very nice and attractive. The sound is exquisite - it gets out of the way, the best thing a DAC can do. My other DAC - a Benchmark HDR - is also a true benchmark like the name says but it's more expensive. I'd say the sound quality is the same, if anything, the Mojo might be the better, more dynamic one. Mojo is sturdy like a tank and I like very much the clicking volume balls and the on/off ball. Original design. Very happy with my purchase!

    Technically both the iPad and Pixel have their own dacs, but they are inferior to decent daps and especially to Mojo. Like you said, night and day difference! [​IMG]

    Has anyone been able to compare the Chord Mojo with the Ak120ii?  I currently own the Ak120ii and have always wondered which is better out of the two in terms of musical delivery.  I have the Ak100ii as well, and have considered selling my Ak120ii and just stacking my Ak100ii with a chord mojo. . . . I have CIEMs, and i just haven't been able to do a comparison. . .
     
    Anyone been able to experience both devices?  Opinions and inputs appreciated!

    Lots of users have posted on this thread about successfully using the AK100ii as a transport for the Mojo, so just search the thread.
     
    Here is one example http://www.head-fi.org/t/784602/chord-mojo-dac-amp-faq-in-3rd-post/5055#post_12078284

    I can't comment on the AK120II, but there is no question in my mind about the Mojo besting my AK240SS.

    I like my newly acquired Mojo as well, not just the great sound, but also the unique design.
     
    I, like many on this thread, can't wait to see this new SD module being introduced in January. I wonder also if a new Mojo Player will be revealed for those who don't own a Mojo or like the idea of a unified design rather than an add-on.

    ofcourse. I totally agree.

    We all talk about the musicality of Mojo, but not so much the design.  
     
    I love the design.  I think it is wildly creative and so very convenient.  It is eye catching (which has produced lots of conversation) and functional.  Someone with a very strong imagination came up with the design.

    I'd like to add that the 240SS as a DAP is a very nice sounding unit and I've been very happy with it over the 18 months I've owned it. With that said, where the Mojo really does it for me is the sense of space it creates. It is certainly noticeable when using headphones, but it is readily apparent when used in my speaker system. My Raidhos are noted for their soundstage holography, but with the Mojo in my system, it takes this to a higher level.
     
    There are layers of depth revealed that the 240SS cannot create.
     
    Funny, when I owned my Hugo I didn't have this same experience, but at the time I used an AK240 as a transport and I had a pair of Focal 1008 Be loudspeakers. Still, I think the Mojo is better suited to my tastes than the Hugo.

    Well that is awesome to hear. Maybe I should make the switch then...

    Oh yes I know about the carrier option on the AK100ii... I'm just inquiring more on the sound signature differences between the mojo and AK120ii so I'll know which route I want to take.

    If you use 'AK100ii' as the search term, you get 124 pages of posts containing the term.
    As I say, there have been many discussions about the sound signatures, and many result in people using the AK100ii as the music transport, feeding the Mojo as the DAC. That should tell you something about how many owners feel, but there are many posts for you to read about what they say about sound signatures.

    Lavricable update: updated to iOS 10.2 Public Beta 6 and my cable is now working again. Didn't try it with Beta 5 as I never installed that.
    My cable is 'as is' and has not been modified by Lavricable. I know there is a fix he does if you send your cable back to him for a price. IIRC, it is @Peter Hyatt that had his done recently.
