    Yep, I got that from the initial leaks.
    I'll be driving it off my laptop when at my girlfriends place via USB ... and via Toslink from the AK120, since the AK players only have optical digital outputs (that I know of).

    Trying to find best connectivity for my Fiio and iBasso DAPs. The HiFi 75ohm cables I have by QED and Chord company have Phonos at both ends and would require 2 adapters. The shorter more suitable 'DAP coax' leads provided by iBasso and Fiio both have Phono at one end, excellent for Hugo but need a Phono to 3.5 adapter for Mojo. I also have some 3.5 to 3.5 stereo cables for analogue connection to docks, car radio etc, are these usable for digital transmission?

    Comparing AK240 and iPhone 6S+as a transport, both using the Mojo as a DAC - is there any noticeable difference? Because the more I have used the 6S+, the more I feel that it actually sounds better than my AK240, straight out to my Layla and K10. I'd probably be taking a beating on this but I am just being blunt honest on what I hear. I do own way better desktop gear with top end DACs, headphone amps and headphones (LCD3, HE1000, BHSE and SR009 included) so I am pretty sure my hearing or taste is still intact.

    Just wondering - is Apple's camera connection cable not required?
  5. purk Contributor
    That could be because of an inferior optical to USB connection.

    That is some sort of Samsung Galaxy phone there, would need a usb otg cable for that I think.

    I look forward hearing from you :)

    Is there going to be a sexy Mojo leather case that can fit a DAP like the Hugo leather case?

    If you're going to stack with something like the Mojo, DAPs like the AK240 seem pretty pointless IMO. Might as well use a phone as a transport and save a couple of grand. You'll probably wind up with a much better display and UI into the bargain.

    Storage capacity and easy support for higher resolution files are challenges with phones.
    In the iPhone world you're limited to 128Gb, in the Android space, if you're willing to mess about swapping microSD cards you can go bigger, but the serious DAPs can mount almost half a terabyte of storage and retain a fully indexed catalog.  And, if you need more space, you can turn off indexing and swap cards as you need for unlimited capacity.
    No argument about the display and user experience or cost savings if you don't need the capacity/convenience though.

    good question, as much as coax is 75ohm, and IIRC line level is 50ohm, surely in the digital realm a patch cable that works, well - works!

    I'm not wrong am I? Have some very nice short run 3.5mm line level cables I could drop in :)

    Sure can. :D

    It can drive the LCD-4 which is a lot harder to drive than the HE-1000.

    We just need to make sure the female port can contact both the ring and sleeve. Or else, we need to short them internally on one of the male jacks.
    Something like the jds labs ultra-short IC will be terrific.

    Apple connection kit would still be needed for iPhone devices.
