Up for sale my Chord Hugo TT Color is Silver Complete with box, original papers, remote, USB cable, power supply. In pristine condition, not a single scratch or marking.   It's still under warranty until September 2017 Board is brand new, replaced in November by Chord UK following a minor glitch (USB SD plug was not properly sealed).
Up for sale, this very special AMR DP-777 SE dac convertor in Silver. Two dac chips, one very upgraded philips R2R by Thorsten Loach for 16/44.1kHz conversion and another for HR files Sigma Delta.  The DP-777 SE switches automatically from one chip to another depending on the file it is receiving. Outstanding on its two functions as preamp and dac.   Selling it as it is replaced by a new preamplifier from a new brand.  Only used it with a cd transport (no PC, tv or...
I should add Chord after sales has been stellar, responsive, quick. I had a small problem with my TT and it will be solved in a matter of days.

By the way, lovely blog you have… Even if I don't quite agree with your enthusiasm about HE1000.;-)
Chord and Audirvana officially stated a problem with Sierra.Apple developper forum (I'm part of it) is full of this USB problem with Sierra.https://forums.developer.apple.com/search.jspa?q=USB%20SierraMy other Macs are still with El Capitan, and no USB problem.
My TT is not in cause. Known issue with Sierra, USB and sound :https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/65232https://audirvana.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&p=3894&sid=c6f5475b8aae85ab8611a84f638013fd#p3894 I tested my TT with El Capitan on my second Macbook : no problem, SD and HD flawlessly.
That's an option, yes.Is the difference of quality marked between USB SD and HD from the TT ?
