    and just out of curiousity, which ones  would you vote for in not needing EQ? I'd love to find a perfectly balanced set of cans...problem is, everyone's prefs of a great or ideal sound sig are  often  unique.
    i'm a basshead 'lite', for example: meaning while i love great bass, it has to be balance. I'm also getting away from too much sub bass I feel it can bleed into other areas...but other bass lovers would poo poo me as not appreciating bass. so my idea of  balanced cans wouldn't be to their liking...and vice versa, most likely.
    or am i missing something?

    Lol, Mojo's sound drove me to acquire the DAVE last year. :eek:

    I'm considering the Hugo2 to replace the Mojo based on early reports of the sonic performance. Black is the only choice for me.
    Deftone and Peter Hyatt like this.

    I am concerned about battery life in the Hugo 2. The first info on it from What Hi-Fi said it had longer-life batteries. I think according to info Chord Electronics gave them. ...Yet somehow people see to have worked out that Hugo 2 will have less battery life than the first Hugo. (Confused emoticon.)
    I hope it's not less that original Hugo as it will bring it into the battery life range of the Mojo. Eight hours really is bottom line or borderline battery life for a music gadget.

    yes, bifrost muiltibit.

    I'd never come close to depleting its power in a single day either way.
    The secret to enjoying music is to not overdo it. Ya gotta set aside a limited amount of time for it per day. If you did nothing but play music constantly, you would become desensitized, and it would lose much of its effect.

    that's not quite right, mojo feeding Hd650 is incredible to my ears, resolving yet silky smooth.

    ill take the black hugo 2 (after saving up for 14 months...)

    LCD2 are very well balanced imo, the ones I had were much brighter than the dark sound people were calling them.

    John from Chord commented in the Hugo 2 thread that they have gone back to their battery supplier to come up with a better solution for the Hugo 2. He expressed he is looking for at least a 20% improvement, and he sounded hopeful that it would happen.

    I'm definitely planning on getting a Hugo 2. I had the original Hugo in black, but this time due to the improved aesthetics, I'm going for the silver version.

    and I remember a chord staffer saying they often listened to the mojo thru the 650s

    1980 pages on, people are still asking about source differences. If there is only one reason to get Poly, I think it is to hear how all the Chord technology sounds together. I don't have the time or interest in testing so many sources, but I am very interested to hear a full on Chord device. It will definitely not be case closed, but hopefully Poly takes the Mojo to a high level, although it never has slouched IMO.

    Poly will not end the discussion about source differences.

    That's the reason Mojo can be used as a Pre-Amp or DAC only which i use daily at my home !

    Has to be a good amp to handle the Mojo, though, which I'm sure 95% of you here have. I tried hooking the Mojo to my (cheaper) Cayin C5 and the effect was to veil the detail and sharpness of the Mojo's own output. Still, it added a fun, rumbling bass which is great for listening to some genres
