    Soo bummed I missed the TTVJ tip a few hours ago. This Moon-Audio backorder is killing me...

    Might be an issue during summer. (Asuming you are in the northern hemisphere), running as a desktop DAC and charging. The last thing you want is the DAC switching off.
     
    -------------
     
    By the way I read on an Amazon review that once the Mojo reaches full charge, the charging switches off.  In other words it won't sit constantly charging, and for desktop operation the charging cycle needs to be manually restarted.

    Does anyone have the ALO International+ & Mojo and care to provide a comparison?
     
    I have the ALO and wondering how different the two are and if it's worth to upgrade.
     
    Also - How does the K-10s pair with the Mojo?
     
    Any information would be appreciated.
     
    Thanking you in advance!

    Just to clarify. Charging is automatic. If you are playing and charging at the same time, with a fully charged battery, the charger will supply enough current to balance the consumption used by Mojo, so no net current into the battery. If its fully charged and the unit is off, the charger will go off. The charger will re charge automatically when the battery voltage falls to 8.2v (off at 8.4v) so keeping the charger connected will ensure a full charge.

    Thanks, Rob. What is the behavior when the unit is on but not playing anything? Will the smart charging still work, or is this not recommended for long periods when not using?

    thanks for this.

    Now the initial idea from sysconcept was great! But your idea is even better and adds no thickness or depth with many advantages like being easier to pull out the cables!

    You can leave it plugged in and charging with no signal. The power consumption is a little lower with no signal but otherwise its the same, just merrily reproducing 0.

    I asked the same question earlier in the thread. I agree the Mojo and International+ are likely the two closest competitors on the market and I evaluated both amplifiers for 30-miuntes with my Etymōtic ER•4S headphones. I need to further evaluate the Mojo in the coming weeks when my unit arrives but I initially perceived the International+ has greater bass extension-- the other sonic differences will require many more hours of close review. The International+ also benefits from balanced inputs/outputs, gain switch, and traditional volume control. I also feel the International+ has higher build quality (specifically a smaller and more rigid enclosure). On a spec sheet the Mojo's DAC is certainly more impressive than International+'s CS4398 DAC chip but ALO always builds a fine amplifier section.

    Hey there!
     
    Very interesting! I agree that the ALO Int+ is a fine amp. I'm looking forward to reading more after you get your Mojo.
    The appeal for me is that optical input which would work great with my AK 120.
     
    Thanks much for information!

    I beleive John Darko of digitalaudioreview.net has both the International+ Optical Edition and Mojo and perhaps his final Mojo review will settle the score.

    It's the same for AK120 II. My C2C was 25mm with AK120ii, i can use the same with Ak100.

    Cheap otg cable. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=301669713346&alt=web, works with My Sony Z5 and Mojo

    Yep, I have that one. Have a few others, including more expensive ones like the TTVJ one... Can't hear a difference.
