Is the difference between iPhone 6s DAC and the Mojo day and night ?
On first listen the Mojo sounds a great deal better than the iPhone or almost any DAP using an off the shelf DAC chip. However, over time the Mojo really comes into its own. As the designer of all Chord DACs, Rob Watts, constantly stresses his goal is with the transient response. I found I really liked the Mojo right away but as my brain adjusted to the Mojo sonic characteristics my love affair began. Another aspect of the Mojo is how it can transform your iPhone or in my case iPod Touch into a true first rate DAP. The ability to go digital line out from a lightning iDevice transforms your iDevice into a digital storage or streaming device with the Mojo do all the work.
It is the Mojo that led me to retire my beloved 846s after 2 1/2 years and pony up for the KSE1500. The KSE, like all electrostats, emphasize the transient response so it was a natural fit with the Mojo.
