    Iam bit new to this DAC related stuff. So can you pls help me to clarify this.

    I have samsung S5 and ak100. And i am plan to buy Chord mojo as well. Lets say if connect new chord mojo to S5 and play some flac songs and next time i connect ak100 to chord mojo and play exactly same audio file as previous is there any sound difference?
    In other words what iam asking is depending the sourse we connect to chord mojo is there any sound difference?
    Or what evere sourse we connect chord mojo it will out put its own sound signature?

    Pls explan to me.

    Thanks so much....

    On a technical level it shouldn't matter at all if the source is doing its job properly. The Mojo should sound the same independent of the source when playing the same file if the source isn't adding any DSP (Digital Signal Processing) and the output of the source isn't adding any noise or distortion. With that said, some users have noted a difference between different sources. I wouldn't think the difference is night and day, and I certainly wouldn't think it would make the Mojo sound terribly bad from one source to the other. Of course each individual with have to determine if they hear a difference or not, whether it's psychoacoustics or an actual difference they hear.

    I feel note 5 sound setter when it feeds mojo, vs dx80 to mojo

    On a side note, the AK 100mk2 is a great sounding DAP, and really small to boot.

    Can't wait till my sys cable gets here :)

    It's great and mine was shipped from Canada on a Monday and I received it in the UK two days later on the Wednesday.
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that the SysConcept cable would play files up to 192 kHz but the few DSD files that I have play fine too. Is everybody else able to play all DSD files?

    The player converts DSD to PCM before it sends it to the Mojo over optical. If the sampling rate indicator is anything but white then the Mojo is not receiving DSD.

    How much do the sys concept cost?

    About $75 USD with shipping

    Great. Thanks very much for letting me know that.

    I have noticed, many of you guys use mojo with ak100. Is anyone willing to give me a brief description of the sound difference between ak100 and mojo? Thanks

    Do you have Mojo ?

    Yes, I've had it a few weeks.   I had it paired to an iphone 6+, but the ergonomics with the CCX cable was a deal breaker for me.   Got a smoking deal on the 100mk2, and it just arrived today.   Just waiting on the sys cable.

    Thanks San Man! The sys toslink really looks nice and tidy. If i can't make something like that in a few days, i might order one just for the "looks" sake. Grats on a great rig there San!

    Agreed totally, the only variable I can see could be how the DAP or source connects to the Mojo, USB for some may be more stable and reliable that some users here than S/PDIF or Toslink
    I wonder if your impressions are down to how these are connected to your Mojo. Note 5 via USB may have a better connection for you than the Dx80 via S/PDIF
    As a standalone unit in comparison to the two combined, I find that the AK100 does not have as detailed and wide a soundstage YMMV
    That along with not being powerful enough to drive the more demanding head phones.

    Hey, anyone can compare Mojo with Pure2+ ? Which sound is better.
