Yup, sorry, I was typing fast, didn't pay attention much thank you for fixing
@ian. AK240 in UK will be around 2300 GBP apparently, maybe a bit more. Hugo is 1200 GBP. You can get basically FiiO X5 which has 2 micro sd card slots plus USB OTG feature for more capacity (add a terabyte if you want) and it has coax out option. X5 will cost 350 USD, which is around 300 GBP or less, something like that.
So, even though I am molecular biologist, I think I can handle this mathematics. Even with the additional capacity options you add to X5, the whole rig is not expensive as AK240. You can get a mid tier ciem for the rest of your cash.
Thanks for that, as I said, Here in Canada the Hugo is expected to be about $50 less than the AK240 plus cable and if you don't already have a DAP the DAP on top so it will end up costing more than the 240, considerably more if you do not have a DAP already.. Weird how the cost equations reverse either side of the Atlantic!
