I’ve seen a lot of online stores selling Chord products at a discount lately. The Mojo is on Amazon and most other places for $399 currently, and that’s a pretty attractive price. I really don’t need it, as I have some pretty decent options for desktop and a Monoprice THX Portable I don’t really use that often, but people who like them seem to LOVE them. I’ve never heard anything by Chord before, so I’d like to give it a try before I let myself to dream about TT2s and M-Scalers down the road, but there are some pretty vocal critics out there from what I’m seeing. If anyone has tried one, I have questions for you!
The biggest concern is QC from what I’ve seen. 1 year warranty and countless stories about it dying at exactly 12 months and zero customer support from Chord before or after the warranty period. But most of those people seemed to think it sounded amazing before it died. If this is an issue with all their stuff, the idea of a TT2 + M Scaler combo for around $10k is completely out of the question for me, even though it’s not close to realistic for me now anyway.
I’d also love to hear if anyone has any experience with the Poly. I think the Mojo + Poly combo is cool in concept, but seems like it’s pretty convoluted to get it to work properly. Most complaints seem to be with the app for Android. I have an iphone, so I’m specifically curious if that works better.
I’m thinking about picking up Andromedas, and want to know if they play nice with the Mojo. I don’t love the THX portable with IEMs I’ve used, and don’t expect the Andromedas to be any different. Right now, I only use it with my laptop and I will end up selling it if the Mojo is IEM friendly.
