    Thank you! So is this different from the Hugo? (Which sounds more extended to high frequencies.)
    So you two seem to differ about this matter. [​IMG]

    Hi slings5s,

    Are you trying to turn this into algebra?

    Mojo = Hugo + warmth - detail
    Dragonfly = Mojo + warmth + musicality

    Therefore 2 Mojo = Hugo - detail + Dragonfly - musicality

    Therefore Mojo = Geek out
    Therefore Yggy/Raggy = ?

    Sadly there are no absolute answers. This is partly because everyone's hearing is different, partly because no one person has all the DACs in the world and partly because everyone listens to different music.

    One absolute is Hugo = Mojo + £1000

    And in my opinion that £1000 brings more presence, more space, better dynamics and more toe tapping.

    I went to see Ms Mr last night and today have been listening to them via Tidal and my Audeze LCD-XC.

    I started my session using Mojo since it was already connected but before the end of track 2 I had to switch to Hugo as Mojo was not delivering the goods.

    However that is just one Artist. Change to Taylor Swift's 1989 (please don't) and you may get a different answer.

    it's nothing like that being Measured

    I'm curious how this will turn out.
    In any event the Mojo still sounds great for a portable DAC+Amp of its size, and the treble deficit is easily equalizable. However, it sounds a tiny bit more artificial than the Hugo nonetheless. On the other hand, its characteristic seems to accentuate energy and impact, which is a fascinating trait on its own. And e.g. it drives the HiFiMan HE1000 with great authority – resulting in a powerful and delicate sound that leaves nothing to be desired.

    How does it sound with the T51Ps?

    I have been using them with the DT 1350 as my work phones, and it is awesome. I mostly listen to electronic and Indian music, and the bad is full and the treble is awesome, no spikes and no fatigue! I'm hearing so much more details on the songs I used to listen a huge number of times!

    Only issue is the positioning of the headphones!

    Placed order with Moon Audio.  Anyone know how long the wait is?
    Loved Schiit's mulibit dac implementation; thought I also try Chord's fpga dac implementation. Different flavor I guess.

    The iBasso DX50 is still a very very good choice as a transport DAP! Coax to Mojo and Coax to iDSD as well, both are different dac/amps and both in their own world best for the price range, can't be without both anymore.

    Thanks - I just bought the T51Ps (& Mojo) for Prog and acoustic having owned the DT1350s a while ago. Game on then!

    Without sounding slightly offensive about choice of headphones. The Beats Solo which Hachiko270296 later stated using are going to be a factor in the this. Sadly while they have a nice enough tone, they are not exactly fine detail monkeys. I know I will come under fire for saying this but I think it's pertinent to the discussion.

    I have a 2qute and a Yggy and the Yggy is the better dac
    In fact I'll say the MB Gungnir is better by a slight margin .

    So I don't expect the Mojo to be better than the Yggy .

    I doubt it seriously .
  14. xeroian

    I think your point would be fair if Hachiko had said "I can't tell the difference". Then it might be fair to point a finger at the Beats and say Ah-Hah.

    However if a DAC sounds warmer and more detailed with Headphone A at £150 then I would also expect it to sound warmer and more detailed with Headphone B which might have cost ten times the price.

  15. sling5s
    That clears up the confusion. Thanks.
