So coax is better then micro usb to micro usb from dc80 to mojo I'm just gonna keep dx80


There is no digital audio output from micro USB with the DX80, which has been mentioned a few times. Optical or coaxial only. According to the iBasso specs on their website they both output 24/192.

Then which DAC is in play? The Fostex or the Mojo?


It would be the Mojo as the Fostex is connected with optical. In this case the Fostex is required to get the digital signal out from the iPod classic and then it's simply passing it on to the Mojo.

Less interesting than the SR-009 and Mojo combo but a tad more pocketable.

Hello there. Again.
So this is one way to get a digital signal out of a iPod Classic. That's interesting as I didn't know I could do that with my iPod Classics. What other (hopefully cheaper) way is there to do this?
Cheers

I don't think there is one....... :confused:

There is the Cypher Labs option as well, but I don't know about cheaper...

Anyone else find themselves preferring 24/192 over DSD with the mojo? Comparing both with the same album, 24/192 seems to sound better.

Do they have the exact same mastering? Because if not then you're not comparing formats, only the mastering.

Not abx but I'm closing my eyes and repeating certain parts over and over and can tell differences, seem to be mostly in dynamic range. DSD sounds like the bass extends less, the stage is smaller and the treble is more subdued.

This reviewer seemed to prefer the Fiio X7 compared to the mojo with DSD playback. Does anyone else have a comparison?
