    Yes, I use note 5 and it sounds nicer than dx80 to mojo, I still. Use dx80 on the go tho because I don't like my phone for music, but at home I use my laptop or note 5 because it's far superior, to me

    I get the odd random clicks.
    There were some posts a good while back where people were geting clicks with HD-audio with cheap cables. Apparently it was fixed by getting quality cables and ones shielded with ferrite (I think).
    If you type "click" in the search box for the thread, you will get links to the posts about it.
    Anyway I never got a good cable yet so I can't confrm problem solved.

    What's wrong?

    So I recently got a mojo to pair with my HD800 and i really love the pairing. My only problem is that on my zenfone 2 running stock android, it only works with usb audio player pro which is unfortunate since i watch videos on the youtube app and sometimes stream music through spotify and watch videos on mxplayer. Works super well on my pc though. :-D

    P.S. In case my phone has no hope, when will the bluetooth butt plate arrive. While not the best sound possible, i think this would solve my connectivity problems

    I wish I could get a case for it, because I want to protect mojo, I also wonder, what file format plays best with mojo
  6. x RELIC x Contributor

    Not really a concern with the file format. I suggest you read some of Rob's posts on why 16/44.1 lossless plays very well with his DACs. The quality of the mastering is far more relevant.

    For those of you using the FiiO X3ii or X5ii I can confirm that the new beta FW recently released passes on DSD to the Mojo through coaxial using DoP with the X5ii (and I presume the X3ii as well).

    Not that DSD will really sound any better anyway (check Rob's posts on the subject of DSD). :rolleyes:

    Is there a way to search for good mastering, I would love to find an album that will wow mein terms of mastering, genre doesn't really matter to me?
  9. georgelai57

    Can you expand on that? Currently how is DSD passed over coaxial and how different is the beta's method?

    Pink Floyd Dark Side of the moon mastered at Abbey Roads studio with Alan Parsons and the gang using every tool at their disposal. There are several versions (compression or lossless) the 24/192 Vinyl rip is awesome.

    It's a minefeild, but there are resources online to get you started. One I check often is the DrDatabase (dynamic range database). If your album is in the lower zone (red-yellow) chances are high that it will clip and/or have distortions in my experience.

    Currently with the 'official' FiiO FW DSD is converted to 24/88.2 PCM on the FiiO device and then output through coaxial. With the new FW beta's they support DoP (DSD over PCM) so the DSD signal is sent natively over coaxial. The Mojo sees a DSD signal and the elusive white light turns on, indicating the Mojo is processing the DSD format. Again, my thoughts on the matter echo Rob's (meaning I have no love for DSD) but it works if you like to see white sampling rate lights. :wink:

    I see the USB cable upgrade issue is being discussed again.
    Don't forget the QED http://www.head-fi.org/products/qed-reference-usb
    Just changed to an iPhone and I can confirm that I get the same results as I did in my review, replacing the short cable Chord supply with the QED gives a big improvement.
    I have suspicions that the CCK does degrade things slightly as the Macbook Pro gives better results in my opinion.

    No question try Steven Wilson's 'The Raven That Refused To Sing'. Steven Wilson alone is a wonderful artist and recording engineer but he pursuaded the great Alan Parsons (yes, the man behind 'The Dark Side Of The Moon') to both play on the album and be the recording engineer. Whether you like the music, the recording is a masterpiece.

    Here is hyperlink to buy the album in FLAC 96/24 for $10.50: https://www.burningshed.com/store/stevenwilson/product/144/4599/
