Separate names with a comma.
Thanks. Very interesting.
I was watching munkonggadgets' interview with John Franks on youtube. (Watched only like 15 mins or so..) John talks about bringing WiFi, Bluetooth and SD-Card modules for Mojo.
Another thing I learnt, the name Hugo was derived from 'You Go' (in reference to music-on-the-go) and MoJo stands for Mobile Joy.
Has anyone come across a good guide for setting up foobar to output DSD to the Mojo? I've looked everywhere and found bits and pieces but I still cant get the white to turn light saying its getting DSD. Currently its the light purple 768khz.
You might find that is the white light if it's like mine as DSD shows as a light pink colour, I asked in the thread previously and John Franks said it was normal as it was difficult to get the LEDs behind the buttons to produce accurate colours so the pure white wasn't guaranteed !
not really about better sound but more of portability, some like me already have an iphone and just makes sense to make it work with the mojo (which i just bought rather than getting an android phone just for music. I also have a dx90 connected to the mojo but while the dx90 has flac files, i always find myself using the iphone 6s+ more via apple music and spotify in terms of portable music. We already have the iphone long before the mojo, and since its compatible just made the mojo more versatile I always prefer the iPhone's music UI, and couple with mojo's awesome dac/amp, just makes it the perfect portable setup for me, i always found dx90 and other music players clunky in terms of interface
I've been finding , with the Mojo, that I am listening to more and more live albums, really enjoying the different ambiances, noticing timbres and subtle music cues which I never noticed before. More often than not, I'm mesmerized, as if actually at the concert. It's bloomin' wonderful!! Are you finding the same thing?
Anyhow, the Mojo is all about more musical joy after all, so I thought I'd start a post about thrilling live albums I've been delving into lately and hope that we may share the wonder a bit. To this end,I've compiled a list of albums which really "sing" with Mojo. Hope you can share your's.
Cream - Live 2005 Royal Albert Hall. Such a great, airy sound from the "best" power trio ever. Jack's bass is so good! And if you can watch the Bluray Video version , it's fab too.
Clapton & Winwood - Madison Sq Gardens - just superb sound and musicianship. Again , the Bluray vid is superlative.
Gov't Mule - Live with a little help - Brilliant 4 cd sprawling set, just wow!
Gov't Mule - The Deepest End, another superb set.
Jeff Beck - Live at Ronnie Scott's - Superb playing all round and a highlight being Imogen Heap guesting.
Crosby Stills & Nash - CSN 2012 - Lovely stuff! Great to hear the guys still rocking out!
Dave Matthews - Central Park - Just amazing sound and THE best ever version of Cortez The Killer with Warren Haynes on guitar (imho)
John Coltrane - Live at Birdland and Village Vanguard, Coltrane at his prime, IMO and great sound, capturing the events well (esp the VV sets)
Keith Jarrett - Whisper Not , just amazing, with a good set of cans and Mojo, you are completely immersed in the trio's interplay.
B B King - Cook County Jail - nuff said.
This is by no means a definitive list, lol. I could add another 20 easily, Genesis Seconds Out, Dire Straits Alchemy, Eva Cassidy, Live at Blues Alley, Peter Green at Ronnie Scott's, pretty much all of the Phish live output, Allman Bros Fillmore (should be listed above, doh!), Pink Floyd Delicate Sound of Thunder, and so on and on...
Sorry for the dumb question, so where can I buy the Mojo online in USA? Thanks in advance.
I am happy you enjoy your Mojo, and that there are people in this thread who share this joy. I also find Mojo an incredible device. Extremely musical, natural. Gives life to any kind of music. It is great with any music genres, but you are right, live performances become truly alive.
I find that I don't like to listen to music at all without the mojo Even through the AK by itself, it's just not the same.
Exactly. I always emphasise that source gear is more important than file sampling rate. Not only on mastering - on a first class source, 16/44.1 either from a CD or a file always sounds much much better than a cheap source which plays DSD or 24/192. Not to mention that some of these so called high res files are just up-sampled and basically people are deceiving themselves when listening to these up sampled files - sounds a bit fuller maybe but the sound becomes very artificial and once becomes fatigued quite soon after listening to one to two songs.
Funny you should say that, have been thinking much the same for a while, esp now I have Mojo. I'm sort of looking at the HD versions and DSD's however with the hope that they also use the best masters. Its a sideways approach to it all
I wholeheartedly agree with you. The mastering on that recording is simply stellar.
so that's why i was getting some pops/cracks too earlier when i used the mojo... i was on ios 9.3 too. speaking of which, sorry for the off topic a bit, is the use of the iPhone lightning camera kit just a workaround or it really is meant for audio? i know it works fine now, just wondering since the mojo is not MFI-certified, will there come a time that it may be blocked by apple? or the usb audio officially supported by apple via its lightning kit? thanks in advance
I wonder if it will end up looking more like one piece, than it looked in those photos.
