Would be curious to hear anyone's impressions on the pairing with the SS if there is a signifcant benefit of going to a better USB interface with it.
Yep using the MacBook.... I had a large record collection that was entirely wiped out in the floods of 2011 along with my Rockport Sirius turntable and most of my gear. I was so upset I gave my hobby away for a few years. Thankfully I have found a new joy with headphone audio.
I have a D-Fi USB cable with Micro USB termination into the Hugo. Thank you for your suggestion re the Audiopilleo 1 etc. I have been reading up on it. Yes it's of interest if it improves the sound, having said I need help on this as I read Rob Watts posts on the design of the Hugo's USB & DAC implementation and it seems to me that it may not help.
I think Currawong reviewed the Audiopilleo 1 and he has a Hugo so I would be interested to see what he has to say on the matter.
I plan on adding another DAC at some stage this year. I really love the Hugo and that leads me to wonder what else Chord (rob Watts) has in store to unleash on us mere mortals.
