    Most do say that, but then someone has also said he liked the DX90 and Mojo better than an AK setup. I don't remember which AK though.

    The ak100mkII was released around the time the ak240 was released.

    The ak100 mkII shell is slightly modified from the ak100 shell. The volume knob is centered instead of the previous configuration where the volume knob was towards the back of the dap. It also has chamfered edges. It also got rid of the 22 ohms output impedance. Might have been other improvements I'm not sure.

    So no, its not 2 years old.

    From what I can see the base AK100 is 3 years old, having released around Nov. 2012, while the AK100 mkII (the 3 ohm impedance version with the same chassis) is 2 years old, having gone on sale in November 2013. 
    Now the AK100II (not to be confused with the AK100 mkII) with the whole new body was released around June/July 2014. 
  5. mscott58
    Nope, just the AK100 got the mkII treatment. The AK120 skipped the "mkII" but later also got upgraded to the AK120II. 
    Yeah, A&K's numbering system is a bit crazy. 
  6. Watagump
    No kidding, from the 120 to a 240, then a 240 to a 380, maybe they are bad at teh maths.

    Well I just went and had a listen to the mono with a pair of noble savants, asg2.5 and a pair of hd700s... Via my note 4.


    There goes $900.
  9. cloudkicker
    That puts you ahead of me. I didn't have the opportunity to listen to it and went with what I read.

    Well I cannot imagine you will be disappointed :)

    I think as long as you have a good hi-res player, it sounds the Mojo can handle it and each will claim best pairing unless you can put your hands on all of the current and not so current players and compare. To me that means Chord did a good job at the interfacing level. Just checked Moon Audio and they are already past the November month-end batch so December seems to be the earliest one can order a Mojo in the US, just in time before Xmas.

    What about Todd The Vinyl Junkie?
  13. georgelai57
    I would have thought that it would be more than acceptable to have the Mojo paired with a "decent" budget DAP like the Fiio X3ii since the Mojo would be doing the heavy lifting?
  14. Watagump
    That would be my thinking on it also. The product was marketed as a way to get high quality sound even using phones.
  15. georgelai57
    Of course we pre-suppose good quality music files and good IEMs, or CIEMs, etc.
    A mobile phone might have interference etc but a decent DAP should be more than acceptable? For example, would the extra DAC and extra amp in the Fiio X5ii really be discernible over a X3ii when Mojo-ed?
