I'm still not sure how I feel about it, but I hope everyone is coping with the fact that we are well into February 2022! Where does that time go?
With manufacturing, shipping issues & widespread stock shortages in 2021, it was a rather quiet period for online deals & promotions here at Lenc - and we apologise about that. But the good news is that the tide looks to be turning, as 2022 hits the pavement galloping!
We have some amazing promotions going on this month, with a treat for just about everyone.
UK brands Wharfedale x Audiolab, are teaming up to offer you something special for the month of love, Marantz have extended their Cash-back deal on the new Model 30 Integrated Amplifier & SACD models, & Monitor Audio x SVS are rewarding you generously for going Home Theatre.
Along with a slew of promotions, we are also seeing a lot of new & exciting product releases from our biggest brands this month. The surprise announcements for us were - the Chord Mojo 2 headphone DAC, and the hotly-anticipated Automat A1 turntable from Pro-Ject Audio. And to top it off for our head-fi geeks, we also have new releases from both Earman with the Tradutto DAC & Dan Clark with their Stealth headphones to wrap your mitts around. Did we also mention that the B&W Zeppelin is back!
Yep! That's a lot of fun new toys to chew on for the Living Entertainment crew. So, let's dig in.
Check out our highlights:
- Product of the month: Chord Mojo 2 DAC & Headphone Amplifier
- Promotions galore! From Marantz, Monitor Audio, SVS, Audiolab & Wharfedale.
- My favourite video this month - Audiolab: Omia The Ultimate Hi-fi All-In-One Solution?
1.) Product of the month: Chord Mojo 2 DAC & headphone amplifier
It's time again for our "Product of the month" - for February we have the SHOCK announcement of the Chord Mojo 2!
It’s been a difficult choice with so many fantastic new releases this month but when a stupidly popular product like the original Chord Mojo gets a bit of work done, it is always an exciting day in our books. Although the stylings of the new Mojo 2 do resemble to a large degree it's predecessor (notwithstanding the extra button & inclusion of USB-C on the outside of the chassis) it's what's on the inside that makes all the difference.
Introducing the next generation of portable hi-fi - Mojo 2 houses the world’s first lossless DSP technology, a new feature rich menu suite & that all-too-important USB-C connectivity.
Powered by smart charging battery tech, the original pocketable DAC we all know & love just got a major makeover.
Stock has just arrived, so I am off to have a tinker!
2.) Promotions galore! From Marantz, Monitor Audio, SVS, Audiolab & Wharfedale.

3.) My favourite video this month: Audiolab: Omnia - The Ultimate Hi-Fi All-In-One Solution?
We are bringing in the new year with an all-new product from Audiolab.
It’s a CD player, streaming amplifier & a DAC - it does everything you would want in a modern hi-fi product… well, almost everything. 😅
In this month’s favourite video, Nat takes you through the ins & outs of the new Audiolab Omnia all-in-one amplifier, and this one-little-unit has a whole lot going for it!
In this review, Nat unravels everything from aesthetics & features through to sound quality & speaker pairings. It’s well worth a watch for those looking to simplify their setup, or get back into hi-fi after a short hiatus.
That's it for now!
