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

    Has anyone identified a short Apple Lightning to Micro cable that currently works with iOS 13.1? I would prefer to not use the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter cable. I previously purchased aftermarket cables from Aliexpress and Amazon that were mentioned in this thread and they worked well until Apple made software changes.

    Every source that I put at mojo il mojo sounds different, which do you think are the best dap-mojo combinations for a better sound?

    I can recommend the Meenova cable which is small, relatively cheap and works well.
    I have both the short and the long version.
    The short version has worked reliably, the first long one I received had an issue but Meenova was very helpful in resolving it.
    In fact it is working better than the (relatively old) Apple Lightning-USB Adapter I have, which is not always detected.

    You are right. Mojo is very sensitive to the source when using USB. So, the best transport would be one with optical output, like Astell&Kern AK100II. Sadly, it costs almost the same as the Mojo. I guess there must be other cheaper options with optical output.

    There was a portable transport with optical out, that was proving popular on the MScaler thread a few months ago.

    Thank you. I did quick search, is it the Xduoo x10t ?

    EDIT: Wow, I just found the old model Xduoo X10 is only USD 125 on Aliexpress and it has an optical output.

    Yes, that's the one. I was tempted myself.

    I think it's a great option for those who don't use Tidal + UAPP

    Yes, if ones main use case is play off a sd card, with optical out, and no need for streaming services, then it is difficult to beat at that price.

    yet I read that the mojo works better in usb and coaxial and not in optics

    Can you share which sources you’ve tried?

    I found the same as you when I compared optical to different USB sources that were somehow coupled to AC power.

    But all battery powered sources I tried sounded same as optical. As long as the UBS source is running only on battery, i.e. no charging at the same time.

    Just my own subjective experience though, which may be different.

    For USB sources I use microUSB cable with RF filter - Monoprice sell them.

    Two start points for you:
    • post #3 contains a section for cable recommendations, so maybe there is a suitable suggestion there
    • I bought a Forza Audio Works cable - they will terminate cables with several alternative plugs, so you can choose which option you want, however they are moderately expensive (say 50 euros).
    • Most recommendations were for a cheaper cable that cost only a few euros/dollars
    See this post for more details

    Hope this helps
