    That's is indeed the sound comparison when trying each DAC hooked up to the MJ2 amp. But the Mojo is not really designed to be used this way permanently so not really a good comparison.  It works in a pinch, but not an ideal setup.

    wow, wow that's amazing. now I fully understand Rob watts comment that chord could charge lot higher if they would have put mojo into a large metal box . I very clearly asked about gumby vs mojo only for sq not for drivability of headphones . first of all the only way to compare both is to add an amp that would degrade transparency of mojo but I still feel purely for sq mojo will beat gumby ( even yggdrasil ) if attached to same external amp.
     
  3. Mojo ideas
    That's an interesting view point. How do those Dacs you mention actually measure when comparing actual specified test results to Mojo. A unit can only be called better if its specification really is!

    I would say mojo and Hugo are first of all are dac, portability and headphone drive are added bonus due to clever and revolutionary design. I find no problem in desktop set up with Hugo . I have not tried mojo in desktop set up not due to any difficulty but it will require a 3.5mm stereo to rca adapter. Hugo is fed directly to benchmark ahb2 power amp in low gain mode . in low gain mode benchmark power amp increases the output about 3 times only so I get about about just below 10 watt with 8 ohm kef r300. this output is more than normal listening levels. only during movies I have to got 3volt of Hugo otherwise Hugo requires to go only upto 2 volts or so. that way I have one of the most transparent desktop set up for the money as benchmark is very highly rated for noise and thd. after getting mojo I don't need to remove Hugo from my desktop set up. Hugo will go only when I have enough funds for Dave.

    in gumby's cost get two or more mojo. use one with desktop and other for portable. in yggy's price buy 6 mojo. use one in desktop , one for portable, one in car audio, one in the office , gift one each to better half and growing kid. lol.

    My Mojo setup is sorta funny:

    Since my headphone cable is a balanced 4-pin XLR, I have an adapter to go to 1/4" and then another adapter to go from 1/4" to the Chord mini jack. 
     
    I could stand to eliminate one of these. Anyone know of a 4-pin XLR to mini jack adapter?

    I bought my adapter from Amazon - cannot find the link for it at this moment. But here's one that might be even better suited to your needs:

    @you can buy a 3.5mm stereo to 2 rca adapter and then use 2 rca to xlr interconnects of short length. although rca to xlr adapter of neutric can also be used in place interconnects.

    Has anyone compared the Bimby to the mojo. I am a bit bored of the mojos sound, yeah it sounds ok. Its a bit to polite and compressed. Wouldnt mind something a bit more lively to pair with a G109A.

    Compressed? That's a first. What makes you feel it is compressed? What headphones are you using?
