Mojo Wins Prestigious EISA Award
Mon, 12 Sep 2016
The Chord Mojo DAC/headphone amp has been recognized as best-in-class USB DAC/Headphone Amplifier by the European Imaging and Sound Association and has won their prestigious EISA Best Product Award for 2016 - 2017.
Mojo, a contraction of Mobile Joy, is a headphone amplifier and DAC (digital-to-analogue convertor) that empowers smartphones and digitally connected devices to reproduce music at the highest quality - right up to recording studio standards. It uses proprietary British hardware and software technology to convert digital audio stored or streamed on smartphones, tablets, computers and connected devices, for optimum playback via headphones.
Machined from solid aluminium, it uses advanced digital signal processing technology to playback audio in the best possible quality, however it is stored or accessed. Mojo connects to devices digitally, processing the files using the most progressive technology currently available, to deliver unrivalled sound quality to up to two pairs of headphones.
Mojo is entirely designed and manufactured in England using British expertise. Designed for home and mobile use, Mojo also uses the latest rechargeable battery technology and can be used for up to ten hours continuous playback from a four-hour charge. Mojo is capable of playing all of today's audio formats, from MP3 right up to high-resolution audio and can be used to maximize audio quality from streaming services, gaming devices, movie and music collections, delivered from a wide range of connected devices. Mojo can also be used to revitalize ageing hi-fi systems, by introducing the latest digital audio processing technology.
With technology distilled from its high-end DACs, Chord’s pocket-sized yet hugely capable USB headphone amplifier comes in a milled-from-solid aluminium case, decorated with colour-coded controls. Battery-powered, all the Mojo’s digital processing and DAC functions are implemented in custom code rather than with off-the-shelf parts, promising compatibility with LPCM audio up to 768kHz and DSD up to DSD256. With expansion modules planned to accept SD card storage, Wi-Fi capability and a Bluetooth add-on for wireless connection, a better mix of versatility, sound quality and sheer value for money has yet to be found.
