Surprised not to see any news about this one here yet!?
 

Reference-Quality Mobile DAC and High-Level Headphone Amplifier

The new Chord Electronics Mojo is entirely designed and manufactured in England. Mojo stands for ‘Mobile Joy’ and Chord is justifiably proud to say that Mojo is a true reference-quality mobile DAC and high-level headphone amplifier; its performance can truly rival DACs at twenty times its price.

You Were Born For This

Its ultra-compact design is based on the Hugo platform, but Mojo uses the new Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA, making Mojo the most advanced DAC of its type on the planet! It has been designed to be easily operated: there are no confusing or superfluous switches — it is devoid of the bewildering number of switch options common to similar devices.

Mojo is capable of driving any headphone between 4 ohms and 800 ohms and can drive two pairs of headphones simultaneously. It can work with any music file from 44.1kHz up to 768kHz and DoP DSD files: DSD 64; DSD 128 and DSD 256. Mojo can decode a wide range of formats, too: PCM; WAV; AAC; AIFF; MP3 and FLAC files and is designed to work with all smartphones and music players. It has a full recall-memory for both input selection and previous volume set level.

Fully Automatic

Input selection is fully automatic: if more than one input is active they are prioritized as USB first, coax second, optical third. The file frequency is shown clearly by an indicator color option on the power switch, from 44.1kHz (red), 48kHz (orange) and so on, up through a rainbow of colours to bright white for DSD. The highly accurate low-distortion digital volume is controlled via two color-illuminated buttons. 

Many low-cost apps now make high-resolution music files playable from all smart phones. Mojo has three different high-resolution digital inputs: optical to 192kHz, plus USB and RCA (mini-jack) which operate up to 768kHz.

Advanced Battery Technology

Mojo utilizes new advanced high-temperature battery technology that allows for faster charging (four hours) which is up to twenty hours faster than competitor units. Charging is via a standard USB port; Mojo Charging is via a standard USB port; Mojo may be played at the same time. Mojo's charging Micro USB port has a battery status and charging indicator light. 

Mojo's casework is machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminum and has a hard Matt black fine finish that does not finger-mark. All inputs are denoted with a fine laser ablated permanent white lettering.

HAHA I do believe it is, so much for the wait guess we get to open our Christmas presents a few days early!
 
EDIT: Though I was really hoping for a Chord DAP :frowning2:

The website (Bluebird music) that this was found on has taken the page down now. So make of that what you will......

I find it difficult to believe that Chord would use something as naff as that mock ultrasound picture to advertise their products. Having said that "HUGO, you go" was pretty bad too.

Strange. Why would they take it down if it's a hoax? Maybe it was put out too soon and they just noticed it and took it down.

  Output impedance 75m Ohms


This spec can't the true, if yes very useless device - no matter all other specs. No IEM or low impendance headphone will work well with this high impendance output of 75 ohms.
 
I'm pretty sure they will mean 0,75 Ohms, not 75 ohms.

And what source is able to feed over coax up to 768KHz? I only know the limit of 192Khz for coax, I never seen more than that on any device over coax. With USB no problem, but since when coax is able to transport this bitrate?

Actually, 75m Ohm means 75 milliOhms, which is 0.075 Ohm.

Looks like it actually says 75 milli ohms, or 0.075 ohms. Thats low enough for most IEMs :) If the product is for real then it'd be quite a pleasant surprise given the possibilities it brings
