    Hey guys,

    I am thinking about a DAC upgrade. My current hi-fi set up has the Micromega MyDAC that I purchased in 2012. It’s been my first and only DAC and so I have no comparison points. More recently, it’s been giving me bit of trouble with the right channel output.

    This week I picked up the Sennheiser HD6XX headphones during BF sale at MassDrop. Now all the online reviews say that I need a good headphone amp to get best of the HD6XX & currently I have none.

    That’s where the Chord Mojo came to mind. I always read glowing reviews and it’s been at top of my next DAC list. With the Mojo, I am thinking I could use it for headphones (source being my iPhone or Sony Walkman) as well as the Hi-fi (source being my HP PC). The price has currently dropped 25% and so I am getting tempted to pull the trigger!

    What do you guys think?

    I was sort of interested in one until I figured out that the battery replacement costs over $200 and you have to send it back to Chord. After dealing with non-user replaceable batteries in other devices years back, not something I'm going to mess with. Besides, actual performance of this thing lags behind what else is on the market.

    Note: I don’t have any personal opinion about the Mojo as I never heard it myself.

    Best bang for buck piece of equipment I've ever bought - sounds phenomenal and reams of power too.

    I agree with @joker, best audio component I’ve ever owned, and the current price makes it a steal.
