I have everything from DSD, AIFF, Flac, and MP4. No one seems to be the main culprit-tho never a problem with DSD.

I do have the latest firmware.

Have not tried a "Hard reset". Will that erase anything?

Thanks, so much kh600rr for weighing in. The sound emanating is so incredible, but geez the loading of music!!!

Hi Frank.

 

I was wondering, how are you connecting your AK240 to the Hugo? Via the included Hugo optical cable or some other cable like a line-out one? Just wondering how to best connect the AK240 to the Hugo. I have both now. Thanks

Is this normal?  Is copying via the supplied USB cable not the way to go?

Any help appreciated as I don't have much time before I leave on a week's vacation!

Thanks.
Have you tried a different USB port ( one that is on the rear and not fed via a header) and are you plugging in directly to the PC (not thru a hub)?

Hi Frank,

 

I purchased my Hugo from TTVJ. I think it is the new chassis model. Not sure. Chord included some optical cables as accessories with the Hugo so I am using those. Which earphone or headphone are you using and what kind of headphone/earphone cable are you using? Just wondering. Thanks.

I have been using a wide variety of headphones, I have the LCD X,HD800,alpha dog and the PM-1review saople still here. I also used the roxanne and UE18 with it so far.  Very impressive combination. The dac is very good and ranks up there with some of the better one Ihav eheard. Headphone cables I have  are Wywires and Q form Steve Eddy here now.

I was using one on the front and it's certainly not USB 3.0 so I'll try the rear.

 

Thanks.

Hi Frank, would you recommend TH900(SE) or HD800 (SE or balanced) if mostly I listen to pop, jazz and voice? smily_headphones1.gif

I just placed an accessories classified for my stock green case for those who might be interested ...

post #3179 of 8541

Probably returning the AK240 as the AK120II just seems to be the same sans native DSD (which I don't even use) and half the storage (128GB+MicroSD is more than enough for me). Probably won't get the AK120II either just seems like the AK120III and AK240II are just around the corner...

post #3180 of 8541

Sorry what is AK120II? You mean the Titan version? What makes you think there is a new mark for 120 and 240 coming soon?
