    I’d be very interested in a TOTL new improved version of the Acro desktop amp/DAC

    This DAP drives it very well...
    Maybe not like a desktop amp, but it drives it in a very pleasant way :)

    I tried my SP1000M feeding my Mojo via USB and it works (but the SP1000M sounds better by itself) but I can not get USB working with my Devialet D250 Pro (CI). The cable I am using works with my MacBook Pro (USB-C too). So what is the problem?
    UPnP works (except not with Qobuz) but I would like to use USB

    Quick question. If I use my SP1000m with a Chord Mojo which DAC is being used? Is it the AK or the Mojo and does it matter?

    You can’t feed the Mojo an analogue signal so the DAC in Mojo will be used.

    The Mojo’s DAC implementation is very different from conventional implementations like in the AK. Let your ears decide which you prefer.

    I need the Mojo to drive certain headphones. I guess I should try an amp that doesn't have a DAC inbuilt. Anyone got suggestions?

    Match the amp with the headphones you got, a serious amp is far better than Any DAP even with easy to drive headphones in my opinion

    Just run from the usb out on the AK to the usb in on the mojo. Touch and hold the usb button from the drop down and you will be sending digital signal to mojo. Mojo will be the amp and drive those cans. I do this often but with Hugo 2. IMHO the dac in the AK is pretty darn good. The Chord just give a slightly darker sound.

    Thanks. I presume this also works with optical connection?

    You bet! on the SP1000. Not sure on SP1000M

    SP1000M has only a single digital output: USB-C

    My mistake. I meant SP1000

    My 512 Gb SSD Samsung T3 is well recognized when connected via USB-C to the AKSP1000.

    So, now I have an added 512 Gb of storage. And... there is a 2Tb version of the SAMSUNG SSD if you need more !

    Does it Show the albums like normal micros sd?

    I have a Samsung T5 formatted to ExFAT. I tried to connect it to my SPKM but it didn't show up in Folder view. How was your T3 formatted?
