    Thanks a lot so my unit isn't faulty :)

    So I hear a faint buzzing through my IEM's when the volume is way down or particularly when changing songs so it should be silent for a few seconds and instead I hear a faint electrical buzz.  How do I get rid of this.  I don't notice it when music is playing but it is still annoying.  I've read some posts here about buzzing when charging coming from the unit vs the headphones but this is different.  I'm using my iPhone with a mini usb to camera connection kit to drive it.  Also I'm using Shure 846 IEM's.  Thanks

    Nope. The Lightning cable has to be a CCK version, as it has a special chip in it that is not in the normal cable. Cheers

    I tried quite a few and since I believe, as Rob Watts has stated, as long as the digital transport is functioning properly it really is just a question of "0" and "1". With that in mind, I like the size, processing power and user interface of the iPod Touch 6th with 128GB of storage. With the iPod Touch permanently in airplane mode I have no RFI difficulties.

    The storage capacity may turn some off but quite honestly after 40+ years of listening I am very discriminate in my tastes and including all the high resolution available my portable music library is only about 80GB. I have maybe 150GB in total on my iMac but swapping files with Onkyo HF Player is very easy and fast so I am never without at least 1000 songs (remember a single progressive "song" can be up to 89 minutes long).

    Funny, but occasionally through iems (Vsonic GR07) I have heard between songs that faint noise, like a CD spinning up or changing tracks. It's more mechanical than electrical sounding to me, but definitely coming through the headphones. I don't hear it when music is not playing, no matter how loud I turn up the volume.

    It doesn't intrude or bother me, it's so faint and infrequent, but I have heard it. Maybe Rob or John know the cause. (I almost hate to confirm this for you, so as not to start another mass hysteria, but I didn't want you to think you were nuts!)

    Edit: just reread your post, so let me add that I also have iPhone and CCK - anyone else with or without that combo?

    As covered in post #3 on the first page of this forum.  BTW, Apple now calls it the Camera Adaptor or something like that and can not find in their database it if you ask for CCK--at least that's what a tech at Apple told me.

    Mine did stay powered after it's first full charge from about 9am to 6pm today, using it quite a bit throughout - good news I think. 
    I noticed that if I even charge the Mojo from dead (say 30-45 min) then try to use it while charging, it will eventually die again. I am going to charge it fully then keep it plugged in to the charger when at my laptop from now on. Rob had mentioned the charger will supply just enough to balance the Mojo's current draw. 
    I am using an Anker charger, if that matters. 
    The good thing is that my replacement seems to be working properly. (last one wouldn't charge at all)

    That's true - my bad. The classic CCK name lives on despite Apple's changing of the name of that adapter to the "Lightning to USB Camera Adapter"
    Here's their web-page:

    Fading in at start of track.....

    My source is the AK240 connected to the Mojo via optical. I observe that there is a fading in effect at the start of a track. Is this normal? My Ak240 gapless is off.

    Thank you for your advise

    If only there was a place that cataloged all of these issues...like the 3rd post, as in "please read the 3rd post" in the title of this thread. [​IMG]
    If one looked there they could find the following - http://www.head-fi.org/t/784602/chord-mojo-the-official-thread-please-read-the-3rd-post/9780#post_12277215
    Sorry for the snark, but the same questions keep getting asked again and again on this thread, and while it's cool that people don't want to read its 10,000+ posts, a number of people have put a large amount of effort into distilling the critical information into the famous (infamous?) 3rd post. Only takes a few seconds to find such information there. 
    Cheers and happy listening

    Loving this pairing.
    Edit: On a serious note, I ordered mine from moon and they were shipped in a plastic shipping bag and the box is damaged. I kind of wanted the box for display purposes so I'm a bit disappointed. I sort of wish they would have put it in a shipping box, it might be small and aluminum but it's still a $600 dac/amp...
  12. Antihippy
    So how long should the first charge be before I use it?
  13. Danthrax
    8 to 10 hours, 10 hours to be safe.

    Lol! There's a section on charging IN THE 3rd POST OF THIS THREAD.....

    Actually, as Chord has said, when the LED light goes out your Mojo is charged. The 10 hour recommended charge is really only a precaution for units that have been on the shelf for an extended time. I still don't think that's the case yet. Again, all of this info is in the third post. :wink:
