I personally do not care about those things. I just hope they got the sound right. I know that I will eventually cave in and get this unit.

That's the last of their problems. One guy recieved his with a finger print on the finish, right on the faceplate to. Another guy had white ones but the whites were different. And then one guys case was pitted like nothing I've ever seen before.

Quality control issues like I've never seen for some premium headphones.

To all those talking about the Hugo compared to the 240, just saw the price of the Hugo, fifty bucks short of the 240 but you then have to add source with an equivalent drive space as the 240 for fair comparison. Hmm. One box solution with the 240 which is already garnering similar sonic accolades to the Hugo from those who have heard both or the Hugo plus the cost of a transport and cables, your probably looking at north of 3K by the time your done, it's going to have to sound a whole lots better than the 240 to warrant the not inconsiderable extra cost once you figure in the cost of high quality cables to connect it to the transport, very much looking forward to hearing both, hopefully for my wallet their will not be a big enough difference over my 240 connected to my TU-05! smily_headphones1.gif

We have the Hugo in house right now and will eventually have the AK240 to compare. I have to say the Hugo is phenomenal! We shall see how it plays out.

looking forward hearing your comparaison between the HUGO sound and the AK240 sound.  Very interested to get your advice...

 

But.... what PORTABLE source will you can propose for the HUGO ?  

 

A "pico-battery opperated-Aurender" :D  ?    A...AK240 :rolleyes: ?

 

 

There are NO micro battery portable audio server available today ! :mad:
