A Fiio Q5 should easily beat a Mojo and with the opamp mod exceed it by quite a few times.

Thanks dear.
I think the Fiio Q5s meets my needs perfectly. It has bluetooth 5.0, supports LDAC, which my phone has. Mojo can work but only with the inclusion of Poly module. Online reviews are also quite favorable FOR Fiio Q5s. You can also swap amplifier section with better ones. Fiio also have quite decent reliability. Have the requisite certifications from apple, sony etc also. Which the mojo lacks and require apple CCK adapter to connect with mojo. Fiio Q5s is no mojo, mojo as a dac /amp is a little better than Fiio Q5s.

U had both ? Can you elaborate how was the sound different? On what headphones did you try? How easy is the mod for a layman?
Not owned, but heard them in our numerous meets with other head-fiers. Headphones tried were Senn 650, HE4XX, HE500 and a lot of iems too. The mod is swapping the stock Opamps with a OPA2156 in the gain stage of the amp and filter stage of the DAC. Needs some practise with soldering and stuff.

So they were having a mojo side by side with the q5 and letting people compare with same tracks. ? That must be an amazing move by FiiO or the modder.

These meets are not official meets set up by manufacturer or distributor or anything. We are a group of head fiers who regularly meet and try out each other's gear. The kind of stuff one gets to hear and try has to be seen to be believed. ToTL stuff like metrum r2r dacs, HPs like ATH ADX5000, H800, SR009 and so on. Lots of folks went to on mod their Q5s after that.

Mojo is an overhyped product as when released there wasnt much out there in terms of truly portable solution. But now you have much better stuff available.. Q5 even in stock form sounds better in terms of resolution to me, owned both Q5 and Mojo in past..
