Well the first to test the Ak70, Audionewbi, reported a bad quality USB out. So if you don't know just say it, don't give me conjectures.

I have zero interest on the Mojo or any A&K prouduts, i was talking to KimD about having a clean simple stack, am not sure why you assume i was talking about sound. Anyway Audionewbi know the Mojo is the problem a few more Mojo owner are still running in to trouble

For reasons unknown, using an AK100 doesn't sound as good as the M1 or my iPhone.


Because M1 Analog is a great sounding boutique DAP more focused on sound than UI?

M1 Analog is one of my fave DAPs despite the high output impedance.

And I'm really looking forward to trying those new Meze IEM. If they sound quite similar to 99 Classics in IEM for for ~$50, they'll be clear winners in my book!!!

Technically there should be no difference in terms of signal processing.
 
@nmatheis
The DAP of the player is bypassed in favour of the mojo's DAP technology. The DAP should only be a transport.

Gotcha. Didn't take notice that it was attached to Mojo...

As a pure DAP, M1 Analog is fantastic!

Amos, I noted this a while ago in the Mojo thread. Although the stack is the perfect size match I find the AK100 mk2 to sound etched and flat compared to using the AK240 or the X5ii with the Mojo. Believe me, I bought the AK100 mk2 specifically for the Mojo but simply don't like the pairing. As for reasons as to why I can only guess.

You think that's weird, try explaining how some microSD cards sound better than others! I haven't experimented with this myself, but some folk swear its true. Even the Acoustic Research guys say it.

I think there's a lot we don't yet understand about electronics as it applies to audio. And this is coming from an electronics bench tech.

You might try with mojo stack on iPhone/iPod that sounding really awesome, there's no any background noise.. Cleaned enought.
Slightly warmer from my iPod and more bassy for me

  Not my stack i took it off Dignis Twitter but it doesn't matter what source it will sound like the Mojo. For A&K the AK70 is the 1st to suppourt USB out, the rest of the 300 line USB out is comming soon some people already got there hand on a pre release firmware and USB work

 
I am using the latest update FW on my ak380 and i already tried with mojo via USB, but i dunno why its not working :frowning2: Is there any other setup i should do to make it work? The only thing i did is pressing the "USB" icon on AK380 after connected to MOJO but nothing happened and the button led on my MOJO was off like there's no connection. any idea why? Thanks.
