Has anyone paired CCA through TOSLINK to Chord Mojo? If so, which are the results?
My Chord Mojo and CCA through toslink work together flawlessly and sound great to me. I mostly use Spotify and to me it sounds identical to a direct Spotify link (ie, like Spotify through USB from a computer). There is no pausing, skipping through the CCA/Toslink. I have read that CCA passes through a bit perfect copy of the 44.1K Spotify stream and have no reason to dispute this...so the CCA/Toslink. I do not stream many Hi-Def files so I cannot comment on that.
Advantages of CCA over some other options include a a pretty wide selection of source options..(Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, BubbleUPnp, GoogleMusic) and the fact that Google has a team constantly improving the firmware for quality and functionality. Downsides would include poor itunes/apple music integration, lack of Amazon music integration.
Certainly, with your investments so far it would make sense at least to try a CCA. Your out $30 and a little time if you do not like it. I can tell you the chord DAC and CCA play together great.
