Separate names with a comma.
To my ears Gungnir < Hugo < Yggy
and Mojo < Hugo
haven't done head to head between mojo and gungnir
Verber... is your post based on ownership or just demo, out of interest...
Yagg is a wonderful amp but it is a desktop dac, at least 50 times larger than mojo.
The short answer is YES
From the manual
Line Level Mode
To set the output level to 3V ( line level ) for connection to a preamplifier press both volume buttons together when switching on the unit. Both volume balls will illuminate light blue. This mode is not remembered so when you switch off it will reset back to the previous volume stored for safety reasons.
Yes it's set to bitstream dsd. Any other ideas? Thanks
For clarity, setting line level output does not bypass the analogue section as it's basically just the analogue output stage of the powerful DAC output. There is no seperate amp 'section' like in traditional setups. Mojo's headphone output is much more simple than what people are used to in a DAC/amp and is basically the same as Hugo with some minor hardware changes to accommodate the diminutive size. I think of it as always line level from the DAC with output power control. To sum up you don't activate or deactivate the analogue section. You simply set the voltage level to 3V when activating the line level.
At least that's my simple understanding of it. Rob, John, anything to add/clear up?
grudgir: owned (and sold)
yggr, hugo: ~month long loan (friend out of town)
mojo: several hour demo -> soon ownership (arrives monday)
Relic, thank you.
Picked up a like new Silver AK100 for $280. Sysconcept cable also arrived today.
Mine plays DSD fine regardless of ASIO, WASAPI or KS. (Just have to remember to turn on DoP if using ASIO).
Mojo's light turns white and JRiver says DSD playback.
I can't think of any other settings that you can change. You don't have any other DACs connected at the moment right?
I know windows stuff up if you have multiple kernel streaming DACs connected to USB.
No other dac connected. I even deleted the Ifi DSD Nano drivers before installing the Chord drivers....
Only other thing I can possibly think of is if you had JRiver's DSP playback setting configured to resample/re-encode everything to high-res PCM.
Nope 44.1 96 and 192k all show correctly.Red, green and dark blue. I'm really stumped!
Mojo does seem like it is fairly load-dependent in the high frequency.
That doesn't mean it will sound bad, but the load impedance causes more output voltage variations above 10kHz compared to many other DAC amps I own, like the Resonessence Herus done below with identical conditions.
FYI the plots I did below are at typical listening volume (around 200mVrms, so around orange to green light) so it's not at reference -10dBU etc. I don't want to blow up my IEMs in the process.
Do you have event style enabled for wasapi?
