Mine is coming too although I may be on the road when it arrives. Would be very interesting to compare the two!
I have not tested it specifically. I assume they are just in parallel with each other. By accident I had my dummy load connected to one and headphone to the other and seemed to work fine.@amirm I wonder if you thought to test the dual headphone outputs. It's not a common feature these days, and I'm curious if having two different loads present have any interesting effects.
While this would fit @Frank Dernie mandate for bad engineering practice and seemingly amirs too , Rob Watts has set himself a technical challenge that sustains his intrest and managed to harness this to achieve great success.
It’s a indulgence , it’s got little to do with real performance but it’s not Rob Watts who’s at fault here or indeed any of the other audio designers who have similarly indulgent mo’s. It’s our fault for affirming this behaviour by buying these products, you really can’t blame Watts, he stumbled onto a winning formula so good for him.
You make a product to fit demand and Rob has managed to keep himself interested technically at the same time in a world where many of the problems are solved already.
http://www.the-ear.net/how-to/rob-watts-chord-mojo-techI am getting rather different sound from coax and USB inputs with the latter sounding better, what’s the reason for this?
It’s complicated and depends upon a number of factors - principally the amount of RF noise injected into the Mojo, and the amount of correlated noise that gets in. It will depend upon the source device as to which sounds best. My preference is optical, as this has the smoothest sound quality and best depth, as it does not suffer from both of the aforementioned problems.
People kept buying Alfa Romeos even when their excessive susceptibility to the tin-termite was well known. Marketing hitting a bulls-eye on the target consumer.
Maybe it needs 40 ferrite beads on the USB cable. Or Watts could've just engineered it correctly so this isn't an issue.
