If you charge the Mojo completely, and leave it plugged in, the charging circuit cuts off. If you then play for a while the battery level drops, and charging starts up. This happens when the battery level drops by 0.2V.
This method stops the Mojo becoming hot when charging and playing. It only gets warm, or hot if the ambient temp is high. It doesn't get so hot because charging is constantly switching on and off.
There is also the potential to be able to use the Mojo away from desktop. Like e.g with a phone and headphones, sitting in a chair.
Anyway back on topic, the Mojo is the better DAC than the ME. However the ME is still a good DAC. I have not sold my original ME and never will.
If you read back through the thread I did a side by side comparison of the Mojo vs ME(1). Basically I found the Mojo has a slightly wider image, and a taller image. The Mojo was not only wider but I heard instruments at the sides which I overlooked with the ME sometimes. The ME was smooth by sound richness. The Mojo was smooth by clarity and effortless detail. To be completely honest, it took me a long time to graduate fully to the Mojo. I found the ME still had a lot to offer, even though the Mojo had more detail. When I found bit-prefect the gap between the two DACs widened.
The ME(1) is a good warm smooth DAC that lacks just a little control and organisation sometimes. The Mojo is a DAC which is a bit 'out of this world'.
Whichever DAC you use though, I strongly recommend playing your music files bit-prefect whenever you can.
What do you mean of "bit-perfect"? Thanks.
