AK300 - Artificial sound. Timbre totally off. Bass and treble too synthetic. Do all AKM sound like that? Oct 15, 2016

        It uses the AKM4490, which uses AKM's "velvet sound" architecture. You are not the only one who thinks that; there are many reports of it being too bassy, V-shaped, with unnatural timbre. Summoning @Psalmanazar , who has been very vocal about this.

        AK intentionally made the timbre of their AK4490 onward stuff much worse as that is what vendors asked for. The older AK4396 and 4399 sound very good for delta-sigma DAC chips; some of the best along with the AD1955.

      Tried Mojo as a dac and it sucked. Crippled dynamics and cloudy bass.

        That's because you didn't add sorbothane to the bottom of the Mojo... :)

        Jokes aside, I think maybe something like a Wyrd might help. It might be related to your USB port/Computer. Since I recall the Mojo using optical in didn't have crippled dynamics or bass

        Yeah, that may be possible. My desktop DAC too sounds different depending upon the input. AES >> Coax.
        I've used mojo in following combos :
        1) USB OTG from a phone (some exotic usb cable) - Sounds meh. Too much of digital haze and slow sound. Android/App may be the culprit (Tried UAPP, Onkyo HF, Foobar)
        2) USB from PC using a regular charging cable - Listenable
        3) As a standalone DAC - BS

      GENELEC 8010A driven by a Mojo sounded just painful. 50 watts of pure treble.
