Hi,

I'm actually using an iPhone 8 Plus as source for my Mojo (for the main 2ch and for the headphones).

The results seem great but I want to use my iPhone when I'm listening music so am thinking to change source.

I thought about some fanless computer or similar things, but I think that maybe I could buy another iPhone (less fuss, no A/C to wall and I know that it works good).

I found out some "regenerated" iPhones that are very cheap...

I found a good offer for an iPhone 6S.

My question: theorically (or by yourself experience), using Mojo as DAC, I could hear differences between the combos iPhone 8 Plus+Mojo and iPhone 6S+Mojo or the sound should be the same (bit perfect it should be)?

In addition, I will use that iPhone only as source so I won't install any other apps, only Roon (that is my player).

Thanks a lot.

Id imagine they sound very similar to each other as the same operating system and prob near identical hardware.

Weird thing with Mojo is that it is very transport sensitive and will sound slightly different depending on wich device is feeding it.

You mean USB C - USB Micro, right? Anyway, as per the FAQ, IIRC coax > USB.

Curious, since I am deciding between the mojo and Q5s myself. happy with the purchase?
Happy with the sound/amplification and construction quality. Micro usb is not my favorite secure connection but it is well implemented. If you can find one for €200 - €230 in a very good condition and battery state then go for it otherwise look somewhere else.

I did this method and found that it makes the humming/buzzing noise almost instantly. I tried multiple chargers and then all gave the same result. Can you confirm your setup does not have the buzzing and what charging volt/amps you are using? I would greatly appreciate it!
No didnt happen to me, but the buzzing happen on normal/usual usage few weeks after i bought it, and it happen due to driver problem. installing from mojo website solve it. Windows 10 use usb 2.0 audio driver as plug n play hence cause the noise due to incompatibility i guess.

also try to check your home plug whether its grounded or not. I use 2 micro usb wire from desktop usb ports for both power and data. Voltage output from either usb 2.0/3.0 is enough to power the mojo without battery. i didnt charge it direct using charger with 5V output or above.

I don't follow this site much anymore, but noticed a reputable dealer price is increasing for Mojo from 399 to 499.

https://www.head-fi.org/threads/chord-electronics-mojo-deal-ending-and-more.924337/

If you're in the market you may have to make a decision soon.

Not sure what to make of it as CanJam Chord launching new products in 2-3 weeks.

Like the 399 price point, but Mojo2 lurking in the wings? Maybe they are raising back the price because Mojo2 will be around 699 or 799? Mojo1 @499 versus 699 not as bad as @399 versus 699.
