    Dergabe made the cable without testing, as he didn't have the X3ii to test it. There were a few "tweaks" i needed to do before it worked, rogue filaments etc. But once I had cleaned it all up, it worked fine. I shortened the cable a little myself, easy enough, with care. 
    My received cable shown here and my shortened "sugru"ed mod below.

    Hi All
    Hopefully this is a simple question. I have an FiiO X5 2nd Gen that can output a digital signal through the 3.5mm analogue output if altered in the menu system. Can I just connect the Mojo using the same 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable I am currently using to connect to my FiiO E12A?
    Also, is it a simple matter of installing some drivers to use the Mojo as a DAC using the output of a laptop?

    No. It's a digital coaxial output you want to set in the X5ii System Settings, and the second generation FiiO devices (and the X7) require a special cable to be made/purchased in order to work. This is discussed in the posts just above yours and in the Mojo FAQ:


    You can also go to the third post in this thread (as the title says) for links to various posts about how to connect the coaxial input of Mojo:

    If anyone is considering one, can confirm my Huawei Mate 8 working great with the Mojo. With a 128gb option + MicroSD expansion to 200gb (currently) it's not a bad phone transport option. I have the 64gb one, but fortunately all my music fits on a solitary 200gb card so I'm good.

    Came across this digital coaxial cable on fiio's website http://www.fiio.net/en/products/50 . Not sure if it works with the mojo though.
  6. x RELIC x Contributor

    Nope. That's for RCA coaxial input like the on the Hugo. Mojo has 3.5mm TS coaxial input.
  7. x RELIC x Contributor
    For coaxial output from the FiiO X3ii, X5ii, and X7 you need a cable that looks like this one from Moon Audio. The 3.5mm TS plug on the left of the cable in the image goes in to the Mojo coaxial input and the 3.5mm TRRS plug on the right goes in to the X3ii, X5ii, X7 coaxial output. Please observe the differences in the black rings on each plug.

    What Relic says. Fiio needs a 4 pole TRRS, iBasso only needs a normal one, like the Mojo

    Get this and add a female RCA to mono 3.5 adapter, or get that adapter plus a RCA adapter with male jacks at each end and add to the coaxial that comes with the X3ii and X5ii.
    Or there's a headfier here @derGabe who can make it for you

    Thanks for the answers guys. Anyone know where the 3.5mm to 3.5mm digital cable can be purchased in the UK or Europe?

    I connect to the FIIO X3 II with the Fiio adapter plus male/male RCA joiner followed by a female RCA to male TS into the Mojo. Looks like ass but does the job. If only the stupid Fiio adapter was an inch or two longer...
    To connect to my LG G4 I use a right angle micro USB to female USB A OTG cable (very short) followed by a JitterBug and the Mojo supplied USB cable. All I need to do is to replace the Mojo USB cable with a right angle connector to avoid blocking access to the rear phone buttons. The Bug cleans up the line nicely so much so that I heard no interference with it plugged in.
