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

    I was merely mentioning it as an option. I use uncompressed files because hard drive space is not an issue for me. For portable use, I'd go full lossy with AAC to fit more music onto portable devices. But some may not want to do that.

    I'm hoping in 2018, Chord will release a Mojo 2 (like Hugo 2). Wouldn't that be nice!

    Thanks to you both for the responses. I ended up downloading the Onkyo HF app for the iPhone and adding the FLAC files to the folder. When I play 44/16 on the Onkyo app the Mojo indicator goes red, which makes sense; however, when I play 96/24 or 192/24 the indicator doesn't change color. What could be going on? 
    EDIT: Never mind, it is working now. Sounds great!

    Thank you for answers.
    The fact that I have both devices, burned Mojo with 1000+ hours and DX200 was burned just only 50 hours.
    I am in some confusion, everyone including iBasso is talking about the benefits of the player in front of Mojo. But at the moment my Mojo is playing better, more sweeter, airy and voluminous. DX200 slightly more detailed and lukewarm, with a wide stage, but bass and mid is worse than drawn. The sound of a hard and squeezed. But before I can draw conclusions that: 1. The player is not warmed up, 2. USB cable were used for comparisons of staff (not silver as in the case of Mojo). I do not exclude that after completion of these two points, the player will play better Mojo. And the output of the amplifier is not used balanced output. So much for the comparisons as a USB DAC.
    If you play music directly from the player, the sound is somehow better, in everything. It is comparing to USB DAC. And I think in this case it is almost on par with Mojo. Possible explanations of this I have a few: 1. Quality of standard USB cable is bad. 2. iBasso USB DAC does not support 32bit? Mojo has 32bit/768kHz. 3. The problem with the drivers? In the driver settings there is option 24bit/44.1kHz only. Very sad for such a reference dac. 4. Perhaps not the best used electric chain USB.
    So yet that is the case I may with the burning and replacing the cable, everything will change dramatically to the best side. And if indeed the USB DAC supports 32bit and 384kHz iBasso team need to modify the drivers. 
    I will keep you informed about further events.

    I know that I want to try the Hugo2. Sounds like a great device(pun intended).

    Any word on what the US price will be?
    I know that in the past, US prices for Chord products ended up being higher than in the UK. As I understand it, this was due to the US Chord distributor rather than Chord themselves. If I recall, I read that things are being worked on so that there is less of a price gap between countries.
    Also, is the official name Hugo 2 or Hugo2? (On the product page, it says Hugo 2.)

    Previously websites weree showing $2,500 now they're showing $2,300.

    Hugo II

    haha, I really don't know. Does it matter if it has the space or not? As long as that space doesn't change it's sound... :)

    Can you link me to US dealers that list that price, please?
    I've seen it between $1,800 and $2,300 from UK dealers (since some of them let US customers buy from them, then go to the UK and pick them up, and without VAT too), but I was asking about US dealers.

    Your missing the real entry level market.  Something 1/6 to 1/3 the processing power of Mojo.  Big as USB stick.  Under $220.
