This cable works 100% to me with the same setup. But I do prefer Shanling L2 cable for the crisp and full sound.
Sorry buddy. For me, it works but I rarely use it. My first choice is Shanling L2 with LG V30+ and Moji or with Hiby R3.

Hey lads, I would like to pair my Mojo with an Airplay device (under 300€/$) but do not want to get the Poly, which is extremely overpriced to me...
So the goal is to stack Mojo+Airplay device and control the music “wirelessly” with my phone or ipad...

any suggestion?? thanks!!
Airport express connected to Mojo Optical input. Should be less than $100. You’re limited to 16/48 per airplay limitations. Works great.

Poly is expensive, but I couldn’t find another device that substitutes its functions without piecing a bunch of stuff together.

The Fiio M6 would do this for you too.

Yes.

Other than a DAP or phone, I don’t know of any portable airplay solutions. You can explore the Raspberry PI boxes. I’m sure you can build one of those for cheap. Search the thread started by Jason Stoddard of Schiit. There is a chunk of posts about building PI boxes for streaming, etc.

Your going to pay for convenience one way or another. Either your going to have to do DIY or pay for something already made. That’s why I suggested the airport express. Other than not being really “portable”, it does airplay flawlessly. Good luck.

It does look like an interesting piece of kit, so your feedback will be interesting to posters.
I've received the Xduoo X10T II and it's certainly quite good. It offers a more organised listen with less noise than Audirvana -> iDefender 3.0 -> Mojo/Hugo, as evident by how much more easily low level detail is comprehended.

It has some faux-version of gapless play, I know some people found the lack of gapless playback a dealbreaker for the first version. There is the slightest hint of a 'tick' upon track change with the menu option gapless playback enabled. Not enough to bother me. the timing is right and that's the most important thing.

Battery life seems great, about 20 hours for redbook.

Menus are primitive but the CPU is snappy so everything feels fine in use.

Coax sounds better than USB with Mojo. Can't try optical yet, a cable is on its way.

The box and papers say nothing about the insides, but given the exact same THD figures I'd imagine not much changed inside besides the beefier battery and new CPU.

It's easy to recommend it and a bit odd that there's very close to zero information about it online.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like that version of gapless would be ok for my needs.
Just how primitive are the menus?
I will be interested to hear your feedback about how the optical output performs.

So it seems like the pairing between Zeus and Mojo is nice but some are reporting that there is hiss? Are the Zeus just really sensitive? I've got a Zeus incoming and am planning to buy a Mojo and maybe at some point a Poly as well if I like the pairing.

Yes there is a faint hiss with Zeus, it bothers some and not others.

Hi guys, using the Mojo with my iPhone, there's occasionally static noises coming from the left earbud.
It's quite soft and only noticeable when nothing is playing. Is this the interference we've been talking about?

Static and crackles sounds like interference to me. Some phones are worse than others, my iphone 8 used to do it but my new Sony does not. Try to keep them apart a bit if possible.

Does mojo work with iPhone now also? I thought it was not Mfi certified and after iOS 11 it never worked. Don't have a cam adapter kit to test now as I gave it away with my kids labs c5d to the buyer. Good to know.

Not really sure, it came with the demo unit. i will check it when go back to the store again. Heard the crackling noises when the phone is not playing (silent on quiet passages), so I thought i check with you guys first before I pull the trigger.
