    Anyone using Mojo with SBT?

    Hello,

    Just bought the Mojo and will hook it up tonight.

    I will use my Mojo strictly for my hi-fi set up. No headphones. Just my speakers.

    This is what I have and how I will connect it:
    Mojo > SBT via USB cable
    SBT > Digital amp (no volume) via 3.5mm RCA cable
    Logitech Server running on iMac
    Control the music via Logitech iPhone App
    Mojo will be connected at all times to Apple 1A charger

    How should I control volume? How should I set the volume on the SBT? Should I use the Mojo for volume control?

    Any recommendations on how I will be connecting and using it?

    Thanks!

    Sorry. I should have mentioned. It is a DAC.

    Am testing the Hugo as I write this. Very impressive. Too many options and a complete pain in the butt to operate, but excellent sound quality.

    I would stick with using the volume on the SBT if that's what you're used to, and set a static line out volume level on the mojo. Watch out though as these things seem to peak way over the expected 2V so you may need to just manually reduce the mojo volume level to something appropriate and leave it there. The mojo uses 32 bit internal word length so the volume control there is theoretically bit perfect when fed 16 bit data.

    Interesting you mention connection via USB. Does that work? I know there is support for some offboard DACs in the SBT but does it include asynchronous?

    If the mojo is half as good as the Hugo you will need quite a tidy amp to do it justice.

    Yes with EDO, USB works! I cannot answer the second part of your question though

    This is the key to the ultimate quality. I think the driver reports it if you login to the SBT.

    Indeed. I didn't get chance to install EDO and test it myself until the Hugo had to go back unfortunately. I'm sure it works but it has two modes "generic USB" and "HD USB". I believe only the second supports asynch but could be wrong.

    FYI USB-->

    Still have a touch kicking around so tried it on my PSAudio DL3 (USB1) and a Schiit Multibit Dac (USB2 Async).

    Go back into Digital Output-->Select digital output--> after you've gone thru a reboot and established the connection.

    There will be the text "[Info]" appended onto the current USB connection description, click that and you'll find "Type: "


    It will be "Type: Adaptive" for old school USB1, "Type: Async" for USB2 async.
