I'll email them & ask for you.
Had to speak to Chord today as they have my ZX1 and I'm sending some cables to them which hopefully will connect the ZX1 to the Hugo... they are real helpful so you can expect their Customer-Service to be top notch, my contact did let it slip that they have been inundated with 100's of orders.
think I'll be using a small bag to carry around the Hugo & ZX1... be interesting to know what those straps are.
I'd call that '$133-ping²'
May I suggest 1 thing. Why do we have 2 Hugo threads? It is difficult to follow. I believe this one was the first one. Maybe mods can do something about it? Move the other threads posts in here and lock it so when we need to follow Chord Hugo news, we don't have to bother with checking 2 threads and all?
Source probably, I seen dac/amp devices under source section. I am sure mods can find the perfect way to handle but I say it, checking 2 threads is not really something. The same happened with Centrance M8 too, it is rather confusing for the people who is interested in the product.
thank you! so you have ordered already? I called local distro.. they are not sure when it will be released and said probably end Jan....
LoL, I only wish but my wallet may not be with me yet...sigh.... Not ready to dig that deep in my saving wallet...
probably will try to demo first before making this purchase also
Chord's response.... No special app is needed. You just pair with Hugo and your phone detects it as an audio device so you can transmit audio. So on the iPhone go to settings, bluetooth. Wait for the iPhone to detect Hugo and then pair with it using the pairing code 0000. Once connected all music you play from your phone will go to Hugo.
Feb is the muted release... I haven't ordered yet as I'm waiting on the outcome of ZX1 but I am seriously considering one.
Chord are just down the road from me, they have lovely premises where they make their gear http://www.chordelectronics.co.uk/chord-pumphouse.asp... don't expect camel delivery from some manufacturing plant in Timbuktu.
I have no real connection to Chord but they are doing me a massive favour by seeing what can be done with my Walkman's as I may switch from physical music to pc-based... if I do the Hugo will be the first link in the chain, then I'll have to decide on a dedicated pc with humongous storage or get a nifty hard-drive if I decide to get technical.
compared to Darth-Vaders offspring (AK240) it's the bargain of the century imo... apart from that well said M'Lud, reputation is evidence enough.
