    As with the Hugo, that's just a volume preset (to 3 volts max.?), physically the output stays the same. But since the Mojo has no RCA outputs, you have to use an adapter cable or some customized cable for attaching it to a pre- or power amp.

    Hmmph, the mobile version of the site seems to be messed up right now, tried to post my zero hours QP1R opinion and it kept saying already posted, copied, discarded draft, only to find it won't paste...


    Incredibly short version, the MoJo has a fuller / richer sound straight out of the box, but the QP1R has better extension at each end... That being said, the MoJo sounds more coherent overall, marries beautifully with the Layla's, and that lack of noise, haha, I felt spoilt with the QP1R after coming from the ZX2 and more so the Hugo (hiss fest) but wow wow wow, Rob sure did tweak the HO successfully!! Acid test when I get home will be the SE846...

    Sorry, forgot to say I reserve the right to change the above comments for good or bad as the MoJo burns in...

    Edit: to avoid confusion, it feels like the QP1R (bearing in mind I do NOT EQ) has a very V-shaped stock sound, being great fun, MoJo is more like what you would expect hi-fi to sound like in a high end demo room, and is more true to life with the Layla's... The PITA thing here is that whatever I say makes one sound bad and the other good, they're coming from different directions...

    Line Level Mode
     To set the output level to 3V ( line level ) for connection to a preamplifier press both volume buttons together within 2 seconds of switching on. Both volume balls will illuminate light blue. This mode is not remembered so when you switch off it will reset back to the previous volume stored.

    Give me a good yardstick for the QP1R. Thank you very much Duncan!! Back to the MoJo. :)

    A Canadian tour was mentioned. Will there be a US tour? If so, I'd love to participate. If not, I'd love to help get one going.

    And just a thought for us iPhone users, but I *think* Fiio's releasing a lightning to micro USB cable with the required chip later this year that might make the dreaded CCK unnecessary.

    dear chord(Mr. John Franks & Rob Watts)
        can you please manufacture a chord DAP/PMP for us thirsty head-fiers who was expecting a chord dap and not a dac/amp as a game changer. i am sincerely NOT disappointed with chord mojo,in fact i am set to purchase one to add with my chord hugo.that being said i know chord makes very good high end audiophile electronics but i really would like a chord dap.hope you guys read this and maybe consider me & other head-fiers dreamthirst(and there is "ALOT"). simply read all chord current threads on the shard event and chord mojo and you'll see what i am talking about. would like to see a part 2 "the shard event" same time same place next year with a game changer device from chord(chord dap/pmp). this is my 2 cent and i approve this message. hate it or love it,this is where i stand. christmas is now upon us, now i really have to buy Fiio X7 and/or onkyo DP-X1.        ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°)  :punch::thumbsup:

    MoJo is to Sennheiser HD650 as QP1R is to Beyerdynamic DT770 (unless you meant "gave", either way...)

    No need to copy-paste the same message in every thread  [​IMG]
    I share your wish for a Chord DAP (I was very vocal about this, a year ago).
    However, one of the main issues with producing a DAP is the interface, which can be a horrendously complex combination of hardware and software expertise, entirely specialised, in its own right, and little to do with DAC/Amp design.
    Rob Watts knows DAC design - that is his area of expertise. John Franks knows amp design very well.
    Thus, DAC-Amp products are playing to Chords strengths. Interface engineering is an entirely seperate skill, and would probably entail outsourcing, which can be extremely expensive and fraught with problems.
    So, much as I'd love to see a complete Chord DAP (and have no doubt that it'd sell by the bucketload), I can understand John's reticence to embark upon such a daunting project.

    Yes I meant 'it gave me a good yardstick....' Sorry getting tired here. Thanks again! :)

    Mine should land at the end of the day today. I have very high hope for this item given Chord expertise in A stand alone DAC and amp. I think my Sony PHA-3 is very afraid of its place right now. I played with the HUGO before and hope the MOJO will be just as impressive. Definitely will report back.

    If you like the Hugo, you will like the Mojo. Trust me, on that. [​IMG]

    right you are Mython about thread flooding, but maybe a consolidate of all the shards event & chord mojo would be nice. just a constructive criticism.

    Ordered.   :)   
    345.00 UK pounds including International to Qatar.  So excited!

    Not disagreeing, but only to say that I have no control over that. All I can do is start the official thread and contribute to it.
    I'm really looking forward to a flood of user-impressions, in the next day or so.

    Strange that the Hugo produces hiss (for those sensitive to it) with sensitive IEMs and the Mojo does not as the output specs are identical. If it were a lower powered Hugo aimed soley at IEM users, the lack of hiss would be expected, but it should be able to drive more demanding phones just as well. It is looking like a Hugo killer at a much lower price point.
    The Hugo has a greater range of inputs and outputs and crossfeed for an additional £1000...
    Will Chord now refund me £1000 for being an early adopter of an inferior product?
