what does the crossfeed feature on the original hugo do?
 
Currently using Adel A12 with Iphone 5.  That's the extent of my entire audio gear collection.  I'm looking to add a DAP/DAC, was looking at ZX2 but glad I waited for this. 
 
If I wanted to get a Mojo, would it really matter what I feed it with? Something in the $200-$400 range chouls be fine so long as it can play my highest quality files right? (DSD, 24/192).  Sweet, I could be looking at being done at under $1,000 for a portable player.

Waiting for a local set to arrive and try this guy out. Looking to use it as a dac and didn't want to spend a Hugo price. Looks like this will be it!

I see it plays PCM; WAV; AAC; AIFF; MP3 and FLAC but how about ALAC?

This got really hyped me up!. This will probably be my end-game portable DAC/Amp. And also because I really want to own a Chord product haha. Just hoping that they will fix the heating issue when it is being charged as I have read it on a review as of this writing.

It's not an issue IMHO, it's a feature - high speed charging

 ​mmm......just a thought: if you are deeply concerned about the heat, DON'T use it while charging or buy a second Mojo to avoid downtime. That would make Chord very happy.

  @Duncan or anyone else who owns the Sony ZX2, am I correct in thinking that the only way to connect it to the Mojo is to get one of the WM Port to micro usb cables from Brimar?
 
Thanks

You can use this kind of cable: http://www.head-fi.org/t/784602/chord-mojo-the-official-thread/270#post_11995560
 
  http://www.sony.com.sg/local/product/wmc-nwh10
 
This Cable Support : Chord Mojo ?
Yes, but this will be a way smaller as the Sony adaptor http://www.head-fi.org/t/784602/chord-mojo-the-official-thread/270#post_11995560

Charges to full for 4 hours ... I think it is not really that "high-speed" charging in my opinion. And for it to heat-up for 4 hours long, I think it is a bit bad, I would understand if the heating issue is when it is being used and not when charging. But that's just me.

Music is stored in file as a series of bits 0 & 1 with different encoding formats (MP3, WAV, AAC, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC or DSD).
 
A music  player decodes the bits 0 & 1 to PCM digital audio signals or DSD over PCM (DoP) digital audio signals.
 
A DAC like the Mojo converts the PCM / DoP digital audio signals to the original analog audio signals.

I would like to know how UK owners of the Mojo (that have contributed to this thread) managed to obtain their units so early? As the official product announcement/release was only yesterday and yet some of you guys seem to have had your Mojo's for days. If you're affiliated with Chord even unofficially you should really mention this when commenting on the Mojo's sound quality and ergonomics.

I'm not sure that answers the question of whether it plays ALAC files :wink:
 
The HUGO certainly plays ALAC files, I'm sure the Mojo will too. I hope so anyway - probably 75% of my music is ALAC.

Straight after the announcement some shops started selling them - I went to their store and picked one up (custom-cables.co.uk) - really nice staff and great store with headphone listening area. Also had a listen to the Oppo PM3 headphones there too hoping to couple them up with the Mojo, but was not impressed with the Oppos, bit muffled and bassy; my Focal Spirit Pros sounded cleaner, neutral, so I just happily walked out with the Mojo.
