    A quick email to Chord or their distributrs should tell you which phones work, Android phones should work easily with the Mojo - mine worked without a hitch

    We have posted a bunch of info here on USB connections and class 1 and class 2 Android drivers here. http://www.moon-audio.com/audio-cables/usb.html
    But short and simple. There is no Apple Co-processor in the Hugo or Mojo so an Apple CCK connector is needed. We are MFI certified to build Apple Lightning cables but Apple will not let anyone build an all in one Lightning CCK cable. trust me we have tried and asked for all kinds of variances on this. This is how Apple makes money on Licensing Co-processor to Dac manufacturers. If we introduce a cable that solves this that reduces the bank role of Apple. Chord will have several accessories down the road the plug into the end of the Mojo, one of which will swallow the end of a CCK. See my Mojo review here of pics: http://blog.moon-audio.com/chord-mojo-review/
    On Android with the help of USB Pro Audio App you can play just about any file format with the Mojo. See phone compatibility list here: http://www.extreamsd.com/index.php/2015-07-22-12-01-14/usb-audio-driver
    With the Hugo you can use Tidal on Android phones if you have Lollypop OS installed. As the Hugo has implementation of both USB Class 1 and Class 2 drivers. With the Mojo you cant use Tidal, as Tidal relies on the OS to supply audio drivers and Android Lollypop only supports Class 1 drivers:frowning2: So until Android updates this, Tidal and other apps that rely on some one else to supply drivers wont work with the Mojo. 
    Hope this helps.

    So he's wrong? It may run but it's completely relevant since the MOJO must be stacked with something and many will be arguing with themselves whether they should stick with their smartphones or shell out for something better.  Probably one of the most relevant conversations regarding mojo.
    I would think the Chord guys could settle this easily with their knowledge.

    I guess people can get frustrated. I will fly to korea tom, then germany and was hoping to pick up a mojo somewhere in nyc. Seems the mojo cannot be found in nyc either. A bit disappointed and probably might end up purchasing something else in the future.

    This head-fi hardly anything is settled. Even on his picture analogy, there are different JPEG encoders, which decode the digital file differently.
    we're unable to see the difference, because our monitors/LCD panels aren't resolving enough.
    I'm not saying one transport is better than the other. Just that Digital out of a file stored in same medium is not the same stream of 1's and 0's.

    Not settled. You can send images and they can be corrupted. You can have most of the image with parts of it corrupted. I work in digital images all the time and it can be seen. The same with word documents.

    Tidal works fine on the LG G4 with Mojo.
    The biggest issue I have with Tidal and Mojo is via USB from Macbook, every time you start Tidal you have to go to settings and tell it to use Mojo.

    This debate will never go away. I understand the logic behind the 1s / 0s of the source being presented perfectly to a DAC that translates the digital info to analogue sound waves.... However in my experience there are nearly always subtle differences in how the music sounds when digital sources or even interconnects are changed.

    I defer to others on why that might be... :wink:

    The Mojo sounds great with both Dx90 and Fiio x5 but there is a difference in the soundstage they present..

  11. drubrew Contributor
    That's great to know so maybe LG is providing the drivers in this case. I know my Samsung Tab S does not work:frowning2: We are picking up a new Galaxy to check on it. Maybe folks should post to the thread when they're phones will or will not work. Android is an open source code which is why there are so many variances in results.
    I'll look into the Apple issue. I know anytime I disconnect and reconnect the Hugo or Mojo I have to tell it to use the Chord in the Midi control panel. Apple unlike Windows wont let you create a true default hierarchy of which audio devices over rule if reconnected.

    I'd say it's not nearly as relevant as how the Mojo sounds with different headphones and earphones. That's what I'd like to hear (more) about.

    Apologies if you already posted this, but where do you rank the Mojo compared to listening to each of your DAPs as a DAP into headphones and not as a transport mechanism only. Particularly interested in the comparison with the 380 & the 240 .....

    My country where I am at does is not supported by Tidal yet, however on my Samsung Galaxy S6, I can play all audio/video apps, etc. 'natively' i,e, without using UAPP or Hibymusic or Onkyo HF players. I also tried free streaming app and worked with no problem. So I believe Tidal will work ith S6 also.

    My son has Tab S 8.4 and my wife Note 5. I will try to pair them with my Mojo Jojo to see if they will also play without the apps like UAPP.

    I have a Sony Xperia Z2 running Lollypop and Tidal works with my mojo.
