    Also curious as what your impressions on the DAC are Michael. Thanks in advance.

    Any more users of the Mola Mola suite able to pitch in ?
    I've done a little reading and the reviews are great other than Mono and Stereo who wasn't impressed with the monoblocks.
    Every other review is nothing but glowing..
    look forward to hearing more about the Mola Mola
    Cheers

    Hi Bobbi, I will be auditioning the MolaMola trio this week and I will post up my thoughts.

    I am going to use it with the fidata and LuminS1 in the following set ups:

    Lumin S1 to mono blocks only. Volume control by Lumin app.

    Fidata USB to Mola Mola dac to SST SOA XLR. LuminS1 XLR to analogue input.

    Mola Mola trio used together. Unfortunately I cannot connect the BNC digital output to the Mola dac because the Mola has AES digital inputs only on this particular model. I believe you can specify different inputs. AES is good but not compatible with BNC on Lumin. TheLumin U1 would work but I don't have one to hand at the moment.

    I'm signed up as a Mola Mola dealer. Great sound and case work is immaculate. 5 inputs that can be set up individually as required. So with phono stage you can set it up for the type of cartridge you are using on each input. Built in dac is state of the art. Digital inputs are USB type B, AES/EBU, and optical. There is also a Ethernet port for future upgrades when a built in server becomes available. This is a product which is future proofed. Great match with fidata server. Looking forward to future developments. Stand alone DAC will be available later in the year. The Makua can be set up and controlled from any Android device. Apple controller included or Mola Mola hand set available as an extra.

    We are waiting for our demo units to arrive and then after burn-in I can report back with further updates.

    Hope the line works out well for you, but they've been promising the stand alone DAC for about a year and still the product is vaporware...

    Michael, i think this is my first post but have read a lot of goid stuff on whatsbest. If i might ask a qiestion without derailing the thread and could have been covered elsewhere.

    Why do you only use the power cord that came in the box? It seems a lower impedance cable would offer more instantaneous current delivery and also potential noise rejection depending on the specific design.

    Being a scientist and engineer it took me a long while before i believed this could possibly matter.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    I think Michael sold his Mola Mola combo early last year.

    Any more Mola Mola Makua owners out there?

    Hi Todd

    We are using the Makua with different mains cables as part of a dedicated spur, no plugs/sockets/fuses in line straight from CU to IEC plug. So in order to use the supplied cable we would need to introduce a socket block which would l feel be detrimental. I haven't been told that we should use the supplied cable for best results.

    As regards the SQ of the Makua, (we are using the built in DAC) it is very open and natural sounding.

    If you have any other questions please ask.
