artsnparts posted a topic in General ForumHi everyone, I would like to get your opinion on my system and how to upgrade. I currently have the following setup: Source: Macbook Pro Retina, 2012 Software: Audirvana Plus and Spotify USB-output: 1x Audioquest Jitterbug USB cable: *standard* Bluetooth: Arcam Miniblink receiver Integrated Amplifier: Rotel-RA 1570 > site: RA-1570 | Rotel Speaker cable: *standard* Speakers: Bowers & Wilkins CM1 S2 > site: Experience the B&W CM1 S2 - Bowers & Wilkins | B&W Speakers I have 2 questions: • 1: I would like to upgrade to an external DAC, and I am currently looking at Chord and Schiit. However, listening to videos online, I prefer the sound of Chord more. I am specifically looking at Chord Mojo or Hugo for main setup, and to have mobility on-the-go. Does a Chord Mojo will sound better than the DAC within my current integrated amplifier? It's a: Wolfson WM8740 • 2: Any suggestions for an upgrade in speaker cables? I have been looking at Chord and Van Den Hul so far, because I heard and read they might go well with b&w and rotel. Specifically: Chord Odyssey 2, Chord Epic Twin, Van den Hul CS122. Thanks! p.s. I might add a Curious USB Cable Mojo interlink as well.
I have a Chord Mojo and love the sound. I want to make it more agreeable as a Table Top desktop D/A Converter. To that end I would like to share ideas about how to do just that. My system is as such: Auralic Aries Mini --> Chord Mojo --> Integrated Amp. In this configuration, when I connect a standard cheap 5v/1a SMPS to the Mojo there is a hum through the system. Also, when I connect the USB out of the Aries Mini to the Mojo there is a hum and noise. I believe these are present because the Mojo isn't galvanically isolated. In order to remove the noise and hum I'm hoping either or both of the two will do the trick. Intona USB Isolator iFi iPower 5v/1a or a Linear Power Supply I imagine others are experiencing noise and hum with the Mojo due to it's portable design. Being that I love the sound of the Mojo I want to get it dialed in for table top use.
