    I'm using the "De-emphasized Black Triangle FLAC" version and it's amazing.   Have you tried it?

    I use that site all the time. One thing I have noticed in the past couple of years is new releases on CD tend to be in the 5 - 7 range, while the same release on Vinyl is in the 10-12 range. (Blackstar from Bowie is sadly one of these) I went into my local hippie record store and mentioned this to the guy behind the counter and he shouted at me that this was all wrong, i.e. CD's have the capability of way more dynamic range than Vinyl, so what I was saying is impossible. And yet it seems to be the case these days. Sigh.

    The 'guy behind the counter' is a nut bar and doesn't know s***. Vinyl is almost always better for dynamic range. I agree, a lot of modern mixes are terrible and it's getting worse. Adele, Bowie, many remasters, it's sad.

    Well I have to say I'm extremely happy with the Mojo. However my quest has left me with a lot of kit, from which I'm looking to have 3 rigs:
    1. Gym - IEMs + Noble BTS + Sony A15
    2. Mojo + AK120 or RWAK100+ sysconcepts + Savants
    3. More portable, either AK120 alone or RWAK100.
    so question is which to make the single rig, AK120 or RWAK100??

    The "guy behind the counter" is not to blame here. He said CD's have the capability of way more dynamic range. The sad thing is that it is not used.

    Well, aangen mentioned that he finds vinyl to often have better DR, the guy yelled at him. I blame the guy. That dude needs to find his Mojo.

    It is annoying when they artificially handicap one format just to keep an outdated format relevant.

    You might want to look into Sugru and make your own little bumpers for the Mojo, since there are no mass produced cases available.  I'm probably going to be doing this for my Mojo soon.

    Blackstar is a very poor example to choose as it doesn't really have any dynamic range. There are no breaks or quiet passages. That said I can't explain the differences in the numbers between CD and Vinyl. If you take a recording that requires huge dynamic range - Mahler symphonies for example - you will find that CDs perform really well.

    Seconded on the Lowerpro case.....perfect fit.         Model No. 20-11

    So, after awhile the apple charger also gave out the same low coil whine, so that was a no go for me, but I went to get a charger that seemed to have stayed silent throughout. It's not an anker as they aren't easy to find in australia and also costs quite a bit more than I'm willing to spend, but the comsol 2 port usb seems to have done the trick.

    Im not sure it's wise to put a case on the mojo. Let alone leather like this looks like. Would that not cause it to be hotter than normal and potentially cause an issue? If someone has answered this. Sorry I missed your post

    There is a music section right here on Head.Fi you know!!
    Here ya go;
    Some great suggestions there.
    On topic I'm really tempted to buy a Mojo even though I really can't justify the $900.00 AUD it's going to cost me. I know it will sound fine with my Android device but how about a X3 classic with coaxial out??

    So you let us know in a short brief hypothesis how you feel about any of these cables?

    I found that Mojo sounds very different, depending on source.
    Which is weird, as the signal supposed to be the same.
    Mojo sounds completely different from DX80 or laptop, and even YouTube HD and Foobar Asio is a great difference.
    To me this shows the huge potential of Mojo. But beware of poor source. Whether you connect via usb or other digital input.
    You have to tell if you like it with X3. (I didn't like DX80 pairing due to the harsh treble but I love the smooth sound with Asio from laptop.)
