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

    I have owned 3 Mojos for one reason or another. I notice some differences in the new one I have: updated packaging, looser balls, auto switch off (fantastic for me!), embossed serial number and barcode on the side of the unit.
    I'm wondering if anything else has changed. Are there any other 'updates' in the 'new' version?

    I believe it sets output at 3V (or 5V?) to feed into an Amp?

    Its younger, sign of the times [​IMG]  My balls are still nice & tight!   ........................ Though nearly always Red !! [​IMG]

    Better than blue.

    It enables a volume preset of 3Vrms.

    It causes extreme pain if listening to IEM's. Amazed it didn't blow the SE846's up!
    I laugh now, but I was so shocked by the sound level at the time for a couple of seconds my Brain didn't realise what was happening and couldn't pull the earphones out!.

    I ripped my iems out from the cables.

    I am thinking of getting a couple of those JBL LSR305 speakers that many seem to recommend to use with the Mojo.  Would I set line out when connecting to those or just connect normally and alter volume with the Mojo?
    I've to idea on Speakers so other advice on what/how to use with Mojo would be great. Are the JBL LSR305 still best bang for the buck ?

    I have CIEM and i couldnt get them out for what felt like an eternity. of course my brain didnt realize that pulling it out of the mojo was an option...

    What would one use that function for?

    Orienting oneself volume wise. Each click of a volume ball adjusts by 1dB. In order to know where you are for output level, you need to know where you came from. Preset at 3Vrms is easier to identify as a start point than remembering which color combination corresponds to what output level.

    So what dB does 3Vrms relate to? Is it near max volume (or is that the 5V I think I read somewhere).

    dB is a relative measurement. dBV, for example, is absolute, as is Vrms.

    I remember seeing somewhere 5.3Vrms is the max volume. That's about +14.5dBV. 3Vrms is about +9.5dBV. So the preset is about 5dB down from the max. We can refer to "max" as full scale since the volume control is pre-DAC, so we would call this about -5dBFS.
