Fighting talk on the DAVE forumn
That depends on how one defines best - if best is defined as transparency and musicality then Dave will win easily. I am prepared to bet a brand new Dave against a bottle of Bollinger that Dave will win.
In fact that's way too easy a proposition. I will bet a brand new Mojo against a bottle of beer that Mojo will be more musical and transparent than those DAC's.
If anybody wants to challenge me on this, then PM me, but you will need to bring one of those DAC's (or any other reference class DAC's) to Carmarthen, Wales. Plus a bottle of beer and a bottle of Bollinger.
I saw that, too.
Someone's gonna have to get a round in, at some point!
About a week in with the Mojo and the only word I can think of is clean, clean clean.
No, that's just your OCD kicking in
Last night I have noticed the deep bass is getting tighter (not bloating like before) and the sound is more articulate and correlate. Again, the combination would be AK100mk2 > 2.2mm optical cable > Mojo > IE800.
Thank you very much! This looks like it. Hopefully someone soon will report back that they have done it. @Nitrile this is for you.
Apple has every right to do whatever they want to their products and we the owners who have paid for and purchased their products have the right to do whatever we want with them as once we purchase it it's our property. If we have the right to destroy it, we have the right to hack it. I understand your frustrations with apple, i've had to find work around for many things over the years and my next phone will be an android. I'm stil running snow leopard on my 7 year old 15" macbook pro for a reason-they're new OS's (yosemite, etc) are absolutely worthless. Snow leopard just plain works, i never have errors with anythign, my wifi never drops out and it's never slow. Snow leopard was the best OS they've ever made, it's the reason why I've replaced the battery, harddrive and other components over the year instead of getting a new macbook pro. Same with my phone, it's running 8.0 and never has an issue ever.
Does anyone know where I can find a free DSD512 track? Isn't DSD 512 the highest audio file possible? I'm curious and want to push my system to the limit, i'm sure differences won't be that audible just having fun.
I've been doing more and more headphone listening over the last few months and had been 'making do' with my old CEntrance DACport (original) and DACport Slim, driving a pair of AKG K702s
The pending Xmas present of a pair of Audeze EL-8 OB phones had me think of something better and originally the Hugo caught my attention.
I say 'more' headphone listening because I'm a self-confessed hi-fi 'nut' with a silly home system which I've built of the years, but for various reason I don't get as much time with it as I'd like. Headphone listening is something I can enjoy even when I'm working however.
Chord Electronics have always been serious players in the hi-end audiophile world for both DACs and Amps, so when I realised they had turned they technical genius to the head-fi world, I was curious. When I spotted the Mojo and realised they had come out with something genuinely affordable, I was in!
I bought it blind based just on my experiences of Chord's full-size amps and DACs, none of which I've owned for various (mostly cost) reasons, but I have occasionally borrowed.
The Mojo is everything I hoped and expected it to be given who designed and made it. It's technically brilliant, beautifully made and sounds amazing.
I'm using it as a desktop amp most of the time. It has so much guts and drive (the AKG 702s are not an easy load), it is perfectly suited for a home set-up, but the amazing thing is that it is also totally portable and allows you to take all the same quality and power wherever you want.
I simply can't say enough good things about it and would highly recommend it to anyone, especially as it makes some of the concerns about how much you have to spend on a DAP moot. I will find out shortly, but I'm reasonably confident that Mojo + Fiio X5 MkII will be every bit as capable and enjoyable as any of the Astell & Kern players, while leaving lots of cash in the bank.
Shouldn't matter what source you use and consensus is usb > optical.
Just found out something really cool, the adjustable ADEL modules for my 64 audio A12's will be out soon and I will be able to crank the bass as necessary with those so I won't have to EQ after all for rap/doom metal.
