Agreed, but now the conundrum is what amp to complete the trifecta with the LCD-X & Hugo.
To my ears, the Hugo's amp generates about 90% of what the LCD-X is capable of. For more sheer power and bass, the Auralic Taurus is stellar with the LCD-X, but I didn't demo this combo with the Hugo.
I have the Questyle CMA800R here at home, and while it's a great amp 1) it doesn't have ideal synergy with the X, given the amp's hyper detail and less-bottom end vs. the Taurus and 2) more significantly, it changes the sound character of the Hugo, which is obviously unacceptable.
Now that I have the Hugo, I need to head back to the Auralic dealer to demo this combo. Otherwise, I may just run the X straight out of the Hugo, and use the Questyle to pair with Senn HD800s.
The Synergy is very important In audio set Up
Thats why i Bought so many portable Amps , to Find The Synergy With My headphones
