    Am getting odd drops. Music just stops. No popping or humming just a pause for a second or 2 and then continues. Does it with Bass heavy stuff of classic rock and volume is un related as it happens on low volume as well. Flac and mp3 320kbps. Have not had this issue with ONKYO player on a Note 4 using a COZOY Aegis, iFi iDSD, iCAN, e18.
    I have heard of others suffering drops on other devices but this is the first time for me

    Maybe I've got a special unit where Bluetooth doesn't drop out :wink: I've only tested it with iPhone 6 plus and no drop outs whatsoever.

    If sq is exactly the same between Hugo and Mojo, you'd be stupid to buy the Hugo, especially where portability is a factor.

    Bluetooth, and phone Rf noises don't count much for most ppl, but it's important enough for me. Silly me. Should have opted for the Mojo. What are Chord thinking?!

    playing high resolution files trough Android puts a lot of stress on the mobile ram and processor. CD quality will not cause glitches. dsd in dop puts still more stress. so better to stop all unnecessary apps on Android and use higher buffer setting. the problem may not be with mojo. I have used USB audio player pro to feed Hugo from redmi s1 and even dxd files played fine. also a blu Ray player like pioneer bdp 160 can be a very good source to Hugo and mojo in desktop setup. these days blu Ray player are able to play almost all av format through USB input of the blu Ray player and coaxial out can be fed to mojo or Hugo. I am using two audioquest jitterbug one each in USB inputs of blu Ray player and these have improved the sound further. another transport I use is fiiox3 2 gen which is also a very good option. IMHO sources like fiio x3/x5 or any other dap are better than a mobile through USB out.

    If I don't find any difference using my Roxanne, the Hugo will surely go.

     Thanks for the reply[​IMG]
    The iFi nano and micro devices and e18 did not show any similar events when attached to my Note 4. I am however using a cable that was for the Cozoy Aegis originally as no other cable will work. I ordered an iBASSO otg chord rec'd by Yobodashi to pair with the device so maybe that will help?
    I can listen for periods of time but 2 or 3 times per track it occurs. My note has no Sim card and is in airplane mode and has been de-bloated and had all non essential tasks blocked or killed long ago as it is just a big screen host for my DAC O' the day

    i know this may seem like an odd comparison but if portability isn't a factor,
    how does the Emotiva Stealth DC-1 compare to this?

    I've not had drop outs with my Note 4 using USB Audio Player PRO, but that's only 44.1 stuff, no DSD. Is it only occurring with DSD for you @Hawaiibadboy?

    I have a micro USB to lightning cable that comes with my Shure Motiv MV-51 microphone. Would it work on the Mojo or must I still use the Camera Connection Kit for my iPhone 6S Plus and iPad Pro?

     I could not get UAPP to work. ONKYO was dropping in up sample and not up sample mode. I gotta think it's the cable? I will have time tonight to try and see if I can isolate the issue while I wait for the cable.
    Anybody got this item?

    Can you try HibyMusic? It's free.

    I use UAPP with my Nexus 6P and started to notice the random 'Glitching'.
    However when used with my spare phone, the Nexus 6 which doesn't have a SIM, I do not experience any problems, so it is most likely the 6P, as my main phone, is trying to do a number of things at the same time as process digital music files via the UAPP app.
    I changed the buffer size in settings to 400 milliseconds on the 6P and all has been fine since, playing all files.

    I am loving mine more and more
    Wish I could say the same for my ie800s. Love the sound but the fit is doing my head in lol.

    If you feel need to use Mojo as a Desktop-source, please buy yourself an Audioquest 3,5mm to RCA hard connector.
    This way you can use your favorite interconnect to connect Mojo to your desktop amp!

    How much load (weight wise) does it put on the HP out of the mojo?
