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.

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. 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. Mojo utilises 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 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 aluminium 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.
