If money was a huge concern I'd probably not have bought this. If money was of no concern I'd have waited on the Hugo2. Either way the DFR would have been sold. Once the DFR novelty wore off I just found it made things a little bit harsh and bright, and it felt like it was eqing the sound to bring out details and adding reverb or something to create soundstage. I preferred my iPhone without it. So I say the Mojo is worth the premium over the DFR, but it's at the upper end of what I'd be willing to pay. Whether it is better than the dacs listed elsewhere I cannot say, but the reviews would seem to suggest it's the best dac at its own price point and we'll above. Good enough for me for sure.
