    While away for a week I've been using my DX90 without Mojo. Something I've suspected for a while but finally got round to testing, music is appearing louder on right ear, and moving channel balance in DAP to -2 or -3 corrected things.

    Soon as I got home I tried coax to Mojo and as the bitstream is pure, there is no changing of levels by altering on DAP. Anyone else have this problem or have a DAP whose balance change does remain in output to Mojo?

    maybe issue with the headphone jack of dx90? cause mine doesn't have such problem,

    My ears unfortunately I believe, having switched over left and right.

    Anyone suggest the least expensive DAP that will work well with mojo

    I recommend this single first post in your blog to anyone who is interested in sound, what we hear, and why.

    Very well presented in a thoughtful way Rob. Thank you.

    Can anyone recommend a cable to use with my mojo to a fiio x5 2nd gen. I did have a 3.5mm to 3.5mm fiiO cable which worked just fine with my dx50 but does not work with my X5, god damn!!!!!!!!!!!

    To add on to this, are there any DAPs (or smartphones) that perform better or worse with mojo?
  9. Ike1985
    Yes.  Apple phones will output bitperfect from all your apps to the mojo, for example; youtube, bandcamp, etc.  Android will force upsample(and thus make sound like crap) everything that isn't run through UAPP or Onkyo.  So, you can run tidal or actual albums you own through UAPP, with Onkyo you  have no tidal support.  I'm currently frustrated that bandcamp doesn't have an option to output bit perfect to a usb dac, given that it's a music lovers app.  So my bandcamp sounds like dooty now since I've transitioned to an S7 edge, the android upscaling is to be avoided if possible, truly makes the sound garbage.
    To sunmmarize; with android, albums you own digitally and can transfer to the phone AND tidal will sound great, everything else will sound like doo doo butter. 
    With an iphone, everything will sound great, including youtube, bandcamp, tidal, stitcher, and any albums you own digitally.  Hate android native upsampling, so stupid.

    Because the second generation FiiO DAPs share the line-out with coaxial-out and the pin configuration is different. On the second generation the coaxial signal is on the sleeve instead of the tip and the ground is on the second ring instead of the first.

    If you read the third post the information is in there.

    You can see the pin configuration with the included adaptor here:

    slightly exaggerated assertion imo

    Perhaps this may be relevant?:

    I think the Ibasso dx50 is a good place to start, had mine for a couple of months & got the upgrade bug & replacing with a fiio x5 2nd gen.
