Interesting , I don't know anything about mojo , is it upgrade for Mac ? Is it that good ?

What type of digital output the mojo has , or is it the standard fiber ?

What speakers do you have ?

It looks like you spent many hours on system support very nice

The Mojo Audio upgraded Mini Mac connected via USB to the Esoteric D-01 is the best way I have ever heard music through my system.
I eliminates the need for a CD/Transport.
Been an audiophile for 20 years, and this is the best I have had so far!!
(See my earlier post of the complete system).
Thanks.

Ok dude, you are insane!
I've been in audio since college - 1980. Just sold my ps audio perfect wave dac, which I thought was crap and got the new Sony hap z1es. Stunning difference. Rowland monoblock amps, preamp and Aerial 7b speakers (waiting for the 7t's to become affordable!).

If anyone has advice or links to sites where I can read up, I'd appreciate the input. I'm fairly familiar with double-walled concepts and using acoustic drywall, etc. I'm thinking more along the lines of dimensions and other materials at this point...
Probably too late for you, but I built a dedicated room and it is totally soundproof. Not sure about acoustic drywall, but I had the inside of the walls sprayed with solid foam. It is incredibly quiet.

What a cool thread! As an owner of a custom audio video business this is right up my alley. There are some impressive systems here for sure but I doubt many pass the WAF factor..

Our clients always opt for hidden and discrete system with the exception of two channel listening rooms. Speaking of two channel, I'm personally stoked to see the resurgence in in-room speakers, vinyl, and analog in general.

Of course it didn't but it definitely shrank with the popularity of the more discrete options and the advent of digital music. Now as we slowly but surely show the masses about the loss of fidelity with those same discrete and digital options it regains traction. At least that's what my last 15 years has shown.

Good to see the thread resurrected! I'm enjoying my relatively new Sony HAP digital audio player. Eliminated the Ethernet connection to a perfect wave DAC and makes much better music. Long live digital!
