-Chord Electronics Mojo Portable DAC + Poly Music Streamer
Chord Electronics Mojo Headphone DAC
The new Chord Electronics Mojo Headphone DAC 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.
The Chord Mojo is a massively powerful headphone amplifier that will deliver crystal clear audio whether you use in-ear buds or large studio cans, it will even play almost any audio file that you can find, up to 768kHz 32bit, and quad DSD 256. Chord Mojo uses the new Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA, making it the most advanced headphone amplifier 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.
The Chord Mojo Headphone DAC is able to drive any headphone between 4 ohms and 800 ohms, also it can drive two pairs of headphones simultaneously. It works with any music file from 44.1kHz up to 768kHz and DOP DSD files: DSD 64; DSD 128 and DSD 256. The incredible Chord Mojo can decode a wide range of formats, such as: 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.
Input selection is fully automatic: if more than one input is active they are prioritised as USB first, coax second, optical third. The file frequency is shown clearly by an indicator colour 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 colour-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.
Thanks to the latest Li-Po technology, Mojo amplifier utilizes new advanced high-temperature battery technology that allows for faster charging (four hours) which is up to twenty hours faster than competitor units. You can charge it via a standard USB port and play it at the same time.
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.
Chord Electronics Poly Streamer/Player
The Chord Electronics Poly is a revolutionary new streaming module for use with the Chord Electronics Mojo. The Poly is based on a condensed high-level PC, boasting a data server, DLNA receiver, Wi-Fi hub, Bluetooth module and SD card reader/player functionality, all alongside extremely sophisticated software. The Poly will allow wireless playback of audio from smartphones, removing the need for use of a cable between the two devices. Acting as a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth hub, the Poly is able to access music in a number of ways, including streaming over Wi-Fi, network storage devices (NAS) and collections stored on SD cards through the use of MPD. Bluetooth connectivity and Apple AirPlay functionality will provide extra flexibility with smartphones and will also enable multiple Mojo/Poly combinations to be used throughout the home.
Poly will remove the need for a wired link between your smartphone and Mojo device, as it is controlled wirelessly from Android and iOS apps installed on your phone. Once connected to the Mojo, the Poly will slip easily into your pocket or bag, removing the need to be carried by hand or checked regularly like some other players. Compatible with the latest high-resolution audio file types, and with support for PCM files up to 768kHz resolution and DSD64 to DSD512 (Octa-DSD), the Poly will deliver stunning audio. The high-quality SD card reader/player will free up smartphone memory and storage, removing the need for large music libraries to be stored locally on your handset.
