    Absolutely fine to deal with Custom-Cable.

    Is that a modified HD800? :grinning:

    Yes, it's a lightweight version specifically for flight purposes.

    Ok but at that price it's got to have a standard (cheap) plastic core. It will work but not produce as good sound as a glass toslink with highly polished core or a cable with a highly polished fiber core such as one from Sysconcepts in Canada or Moon Audio. There is a reason why plastic core cables sell for $1.99 or so and the difference is very audible.

    A list of smarphone and tablets (with android version) with native suport will be very useful.

    Hey guys. First post here!

    I'm a musician and avid music listener looking into purchasing my first dac/amp.
    I have a pair of grado Rse-2s. I can spend about $600 for the holidays and it seems like the chord mojo would be an amazing buy.
    My question is this: is the d/a conversion and amplification drastically better than what I'd get with an apogee duet? I was considering killing two birds with one stone and getting a portable audio interface also in the apogee duet but I already have a steinberg mr816csx interface and the mojo might sound better and be more portable.

    I listen to mainly jazz, classic rock and New Orleans funk and traditional jazz. Let me know what you hi-fiers think.

    Many thanks!

    But shouldn't his nose glow be one of the Mojo balls?! :D

    And poor Rudolf is not a 16/44.1 reindeer, he should have at least a green (24/96) high resolution nose.

    Never underestimate what Rob's DACs can do with humble Redbook!

    As I've said before, I often prefer the 16/44.1 to the 24/192 vinyl rips because of the exteme resolution of the mojo which highlights all the clicks, pops and noises of vinyl.

    Yes, it will be. I had the Apogee One, but not the Duet, but am fairly confident you will be better served with the Mojo as a dac/amp. And to light your way on foggy nights!

    It should be noted that in order for the detachable ferrite device to work properly it must be as close to the phone as possible. I hVe a piece of two sides tape holding my phone in place on the table with the large ferrite device up against the bottom
    Of the phone. Sliding it down the cck cable even a 1/2"
    Introduces interference.

    Yeah, I believe it might have been cold solder as well.
    The cable I bought from them was a Silver Dragon USB cable, so it costed $300 CAD.
    The sheath on the USB A end was also coming off and when I sent them the picture, they said they can fix it for free.
    But after trying to explain how that doesn't explain why it wouldn't recognize my DAC, they never replied again...
    Also, they expected me to pay for shipping both ways in order to fix their incompetency and mistakes...
    Shipping for international customers are just outrageous, so when you paid for shipping the first time, you would expect it to arrive as promised... 
    Getting it fixed would cost the same amount as me purchasing one of their Blue Dragon USB cables.
    Never again, my friend , never again...
