Thanks. You can get around it but I'm a mature product as well and that is something additional to remember.

I am leaving my Concero HD to go to a Chord 2qute --- has anyone else tried both? I'm curious since they probably sound quite different.

Separately, if ex-Concero HD owners, of those that moved on, what did you transition to?

I had a Mojo when i owned my Concero HP, Concero HP hands down. All the Chord fluff.. is just hype imo. It would be hard finding something around the same price range of the Concero that tramps it. The Concero is raw, Mojo is bland. But good luck on your look for an upgrade smily_headphones1.gif the Concero is a ripper.

Thanks for the impression. So the new 2qute is supposed to be a step up from Hugo so I will have to let you know. I am regretting selling my Concero but we will see how this goes. The 2qute leverages galvanized isolation for the USB connection so it's supposed to be a bit better overall that the first gen Hugo.

Do you have a separate power supply for your HD? At least one person mentioned it made a significant improvement. Would be interested to know.

Been a while since I've poked my head in this thread, but has anyone has issues with their Concero picking up signals from the Apple IR remote? Mine doesn't seem to want to any more. 

 

The IR sensor on my computer can pick up the remote and I can control iTunes, whether or not the Concero has power. But, I can't find a way to activate the filters...

 

Edit (3 minutes later): It's working now. I started BitPerfect and all of a sudden the Concero began to like the remote again. I have no idea why - I haven't used BitPerfect in months (I also, mind you, haven't used the remote in months). I've been listening all week long with the Concero in 'blue' mode and Bitperfect off, and have rebooted my system a few times in between, too. 

 

Weird, but glad it's working!

I don't like using the filters. All blue all the time.

Forgive the intrusion. I just picked up a Concero HD and for fun set it up as a bridge to an NOS Metrum Musette. All I can say is that the Metrum sounds absolutely INCREDIBLE now. I can't describe the change. This is the best my system has ever sounded. Of course the Concero sounds great as a stand-alone DAC, but wow.

 

Can anyone explain how this works?

It's just a very clear reference DAC.
