    Grab a paper clip or needle and clean out the pocket lint from the female end of your lightning connector on your phone. I bet it’s loaded and not allowing a tight fit with adapters.

    Is there any plan to release a new version of the mojo within the next two years? I'm in the process of saving up for an upgrade and don't want to purchase the mojo only for the mojo 2 to be released soon after.

    I remember reading somewhere recently that there are no plans for the near future. I think this makes sense since the poly is very recent.

    Also, the price difference between the current Hugo (2) and mojo makes more sense currently. I would be surprised if they close that gap anytime soon.

    On a side note, my mojo just arrived two hours ago. I took a risk and chose this over the much less expensive iFi BL dsd nano that I recently sampled. I loved the sound of the nano. The mojo is better.

    I’ve made DAC changes in the past that made me start tapping my foot again. This one makes me literally dance. Do it.

    All the indications are no.
    The Mojo crams an enormous amount of processing into such a small case volume. If you wanted to roughly double the amount of processing to similar to the hugo 2, you would need a larger battery, plus more volume to allow the generated heat to escape, so ultimately the case would have to be larger.
    Once you start increasing the case dimensions, you are well on the way to making the Mojo the same size as the Hugo 2, and at that point the Mojo2 would no longer fill the slot in the product line for a mobile dac.
    Once the next generation of more efficient chips becomes available, at a cheap enough price for Chord to use, then presumably Rob could update the design, but every time that the Mojo 2 question gets asked, he states that it is not yet feasible to start designing an update.
    There is also the question about what incentive do chord have, to change the form factor or design of the Mojo, and possibly make it incompatible with the Poly?

    Anyone here using mojo with HD660's? Opinions please if so

    Has anyone tried the bantam gold power amp with their mojo, to power speakers?

    This interference I get with my mojo and iPhone is a real buzz kill. I shouldn't have to put my phone in airplane mode when I'm on the go. :triportsad:

    I don’t really get any. Even before poly, I don’t remember that much. Try shutting down non essential apps. Is it apps that amplify the source make it more susceptible? Like using onkyo hf player rather than tidal for example....

    Seems to be any app, really. Tidal, apple music, Spotify, Onkyo...

    Is your phone very close to the mojo? Like touching each other? If yes, have you tried separating them? Does the problem persist?

    Does the interference happen all the time, or only in areas of poor signal phone reception, where the phone antenna has to struggle to get a signal?

    Yeah, it sucks. Users have reported the same with the Oppo HA-2, ALO CDM, FiiO Q5, etc.... cellular network signals are very strong and difficult to avoid for some depending on the carrier, the distance to the cellular transmition tower and the signal strength. Personally I don’t have any issue unless I’m on 3G, for LTE I get no interference. YMWV.
  14. spark plugs.
    I use the USB kit and the rubber band to hold the two together. I ride the subway, so want it to be as portable as possible. if I move them away from each other, I get no interference...but then it's not exactly convenient.

    And this is why poly is a nice add on - as you get your phone back - rather than being tethered.
    Suppose that’s life, you can have any two of three qualities, but you can’t have them all together at the same time :)
