Other then portability vs. non-portability issue which is kinda obvious... I would save my money and wait for the Hugo TT upgrade.  Based on Chords development cycle/ potential product re-fresh it was the Hugo first then the release of the Hugo tt then the Mojo and finally Dave.  Looks like they may be updating the Hugo tt next.  Just my guess but then you would have the best of both worlds... Sincerely your friend in audio,-Speed 
The combo between the Hugo 2 and the RWAK380 player is better then with the Hugo.  For portability reasons I use the RWAK 380 + RWAK 380 amp to/from the train and then I can choose to switch to the Hugo or the Hugo 2 (soon) when listening in the office.    Sincerely your friend in audio,- Speed

Hugo vs. Hugo 2 sound differences...   At the CanJam show in NYC on Sunday morning I had the opportunity to listen to both the Hugo and Hugo 2.  Specifically I had my own source equipment including:   1) Hugo 2) Shure KSE-1500 3) A Red Wine modified AK 380 player 4) Optical cable 5) My very own choice of music that I'm very familiar with and 6) Custom Snugs for the KSE-1500 that fit perfectly and isolate background noise very well as the show is no place for...

Wow,   This update could be the single most significant FW update AK has made to there players to date!     They need to be commended for there excellent TOTL products and there continued effort to support each and every player they have ever made from the AK 100 on up. This clearly continues to widen the gap between AK vs. the said competition.     Folks all our players just got more valuable!   Nice work AK ! Sincerely your friend in audio -Speed...
