    I've sent them an email, but still I wanna ask the users here, it seems like the buttons are kinda stuck, like dirt prevent it from freely moving around. I fear that it might get worse. Do the mojo easy to disassemble and fix the rotating balls ?

    it’s easy to take apart and put back together. Maybe try cleaning the balls with warm soapy water. They are plastic.
  3. duyanh43
    Can I clean it without taking the device apart :D
  4. jarnopp
    maybe carefully without water, use a microfiber cloth and work that around. But it may be the underlying seating that’s dirty/clogged.

    Yes, it is easy to open the case, just undo the 8 screws, and then the two halves come apart.

    No problems at all with the Mojo, just take it apart, clean it and enjoy!

    I love my Mojo but decided it isn't truly portable for the RMI interference issues above and general practicalities of use - cables detaching, deafening ring tone from phone, etc. I use it at home with my PC. For portable use, I settled on an LG V10 (now V30). This brings 95% of the Mojo sound with none of the hassles. And with portable listening generally in noisy environments you can rarely appreciate that last 5% anyway.

    This DAC supports only DSD over DOP correct?
    Not native DSD.

    Using Mode 1: Bitperfect in this guide:

    Using foobar with Output DSD: ASIO : ASIO Chord 1.05.
    DSD selected in Tools>SACD.

    The light on the Mojo is pink.
    DSD64 used.


    In the manual, it says white is for DSD.


    Not entirely sure what is happening.
    Can this DAC do DSD?
    Why is it pink?

    After a few weeks of use with the HD380 Pro's and H9i's plugged directly into the devices. Used HQ sources and others of varying quality.
    Switched between the output of the Xonar DGX and the Mojo (on optical). Headphones setting for the 32-64 ohm on the Xonar.
    Can't tell the difference.

    USB vs. Optical: the USB seems to be more lively, especially in the upper ranges.
    But it's so subtle that I'm not sure if it's placebo or my imagination.
    The USB cable is shielded for EMI.

    From what I remember when switching from a M-audio Revolution 5.1 to a Xonar Essence ST there was a substantial improvement in audio. Not sure why I can't hear it here between the DGX and the Mojo.

    Maybe @PointyFox was right.

    The Mojo is more powerful and can drive headsets that require it.
    The USB connection failed a few times.

    Using it on a desk with the USB charging cable plugged in. The charger is in a one socket plug with a on/off switch.
    The problem is that the charging light is right underneath the USB charging cable and the cable itself obstructs the view. Difficult to see.

    From the previous post, why is the light pink?
    Shouldn't DSD be white?
    In the foobar bar it says DST64 and not DSD. Not sure how this changes it from DSD.
    Has anyone tried DSD over DOP with this DAC?

    LE: this one says DSD and the light is still pink. If the format is DST, does the DAC still consider it DSD or PCM?

    What frequency does this color on the mojo match?


    From two different angles:

    It looks like it, but the files played are DSD64 and DST64 via foobar.
    Isn't it supposed to be white?

    Any rumors about a Chord Mojo 2 yet? All Chord DAC’s have been updated except for the Mojo and the Dave so it is about time the Mojo gets an update (especially fix the RF /RMI interference with the new version)

    No. I'm fine with them taking their time. That's probably what made the first Mojo so great. The only hint we've gotten is that the price dropped for the Mojo across the board, so prob sooner than later. Gotta be patient.
