Can someone shed light on what specifically is different in the design of the Hugo and Hugo TT that make them so much more polarizing than the Mojo and DAVE?

I would select the current HDVD800 over the Violectric V281. However, you should wait for the forthcoming HDVD800 which is due out October 2016. Rumors suggest the new HDVD800 will be capable of playing DSD and MQA.    https://youtu.be/Z2eLgayhLGY?t=51 
 I believe this is @velvetx's Zana Deux that was turned into a Zana Deux Super as a prototype model and it not the latest production version. Can someone confirm? 
Historically the Head-Fi community has used the term transportable to describe devices that are not easily portable or suited to mobile devices. Transportable once described products like the HeadRoom Micro and it still describes a class of products like the iFi micro iDSD-- and when you consider the Conductor Air in the appropriate context, it is an interesting piece from Burson. However, if it is compared against the Chord Mojo, the Conductor Air is DOA. This is why...
Agreed. Given the lack of an internal battery in the Conductor Air, its ideal application is with personal computers and not with mobile iOS and Android devices. The Conductor Air is better compared to products like the GeekOut V2+ Infinity and iFi micro iDSD and comparisons should not be made to purpose built, battery powered portable DACs like the Chord Mojo. Burson conflated the marketing by trying to go after the whole market and positioning it as a device that can be...

AudioQuest does state, "Measurably reduces jitter and packet errors" and there has been a lot written here on the subject:  http://www.whatsbestforum.com/showthread.php?18580-Science-Thread-Review-of-Audioquest-Jitterbug-and-Uptone-Regen-USB-Conditioners http://www.whatsbestforum.com/showthread.php?18311-AQ-Jitterbug-Measurements I have used the Jitterbug with my 15" MacBook Pro and even used it with my iPhone 6S and iPad Mini 4 but have heard no audible difference. In...
Interesting. Looking forward to your thoughts on the merits of the JitterBug.
