This would fit the Hugo socket, but I once fitted one of these Neutrik 3.5mm connectors to my Denon AH-C701 IEMs and did not find it to be reliable, longterm (the strain-relief/cable grasp of the connector didn't perform very well), but if you're a light user, then it may work well for you   http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/neutrik-ntp3rc-b-35mm-right-angled-stereo-plug-n40gb       .
  I'm trying to see if the toslink in the 2nd image looks different only because of a dummy plug being inserted, or if the different shape is actually the chassis cutout for the socket, but it's not clear enough. My gut instinct is that it may be a round socket with a square dummy plug inserted, in which case, V2 and V3 would actually be the same version, after all.
 Yes, maybe.   We don't yet know if there really is more than one revision. There may actually be only one revision. It would be nice for Rob to chime-in and clarify about this.  It's also worth noting that Hugos are selling like hotcakes, so the chances of any old stock still being in regular retail channels is relatively slim (Custom Cable, in the UK, have some old chassis stock, but they're specifically retailing it seperately (& at a discount) from the new chassis...
OK...             I had been under the impression that there was only ever one chassis revision, but it looks like Rudi's might be an intermediate chassis revision, since yours (ALRAINBOW) appears to have fractionally more space around the circumference of the yellow coax socket. However, this might, perhaps, be an illusion, owing to the relatively low-res of Rudi's pics, so maybe there really is only one revision (incidental white/black socket colour differences,...
   Ahh, that's one of the perils of sporadically subscribing to this thread I did make the effort to read Rob Watts' informative posts, littered throughout the thread (thanks Rob, for interacting with us in this thread, I enjoy your educational contributions to the discussion), but the thread in general moves so quickly that when one unsubscribes for a while, it's possible to inadvertently overlook the occasional post here and there, even with the sincerest of...
Can someone point me in the direction of (or post) a photograph comparing old and new chassis, from each end?   Maybe I'm asking too soon, but no harm in asking     Thanks
 I'm not sure even UE could justify that kind of outlay, for CIEM production purposes. We all know the prices of 3D-printing technologies will keep tumbling, though, so exciting times ahead...
@ nOtEcH:   True, though.   No denying it.
 James Taylor's laidback album 'Hourglass' (16/44.1) also sound superb on the Hugo. You might also like Ruth Moody's 'In The Garden' And don't forget Van Morrison's 'Enlightenment', 'Poetic Champions Compose', 'Avalon Sunset', 'The Healing Game', 'Back On Top' etc. These all sound decent, even in humble 16/44.1
  I find it fits very nicely into one of these, too:  One can adapt the 3 tassles to hide a USB, Co-ax, and optical lead, respectively.
