CHORD HUGO preview report - Page 30

post #436 of 519

I'm old school so I'm interested in coax. Now to find a coax mini jack...

 

OMG… just found one… Can anyone confirms that this will work between X5->Hugo?

Thanks

 

p.s. I realize it's getting a bit niche finding someone who has both item, but it never hurts to ask :)

Ooh! Just recalled there's also the Colorfly C5 or something - their players have had s/pdif out since the C4 so the new one should have one also. However, seeing that the C4 is something like $799 and it's been pretty much that way when everyone else thought $400 was pretty crazy money for a portable player, the price of the C5 may be quite insane… may be a C5 + Hugo combo would be less economically viable than an AK240. Which would take some doing.

They don't have C5, they have C4 and C3. C4 has spdif in/out but I would be surprised why someone would choose it. The size, UI, lack of capacity etc. etc.

I hear they have a C5 in development. IIRC it should be out around mid-year I think.

I lost my interest in Colorfly products honestly, but if they bring something worthy in this hard competition, of course, it is always good for consumers to have many options.

Just got notice mine's on the way from Custom Cable!

Can anyone provide the charger specs and tip size? I'm going to have to find a US-compatible charger.

I'll post impressions when I can.

That's a month earlier than anticipated, isn't it..?

 

I'll look forward to your impressions, in due course!

They'd said late January/early February. I'm still pleasantly surprised.

"The DAC section of the Hugo, however, is just mind-blowingly good."

Just as a side note, it seems Chord are putting an optical cable in the package so anyone wanting to connect their AKxxx would just need a mini toslink adapter!

Got mine 2 days ago. Very nice sounding with a simple setup with my iPhone via USB cable (with apple adaptor) and even sound better with a good hires files.

One quick question for you guys who own the HUGO already. Could you please try and share your experience by paring iPhone or any idevices with HUGO via Bluetooth (disregarding sound quality as it's limited to 44/16).?

I did experience the "noise" in the background with my Fitear 334 and Fostex TH009 via Bluetooth channel but everything works fine with all other cable options.

Regards,
Jim

I liked that one.. just curious about the size to choose.. small or medium.. small would be perfect if the iPad Mini could fit.. but regarding to measurements it does not.. but you never know before you try.. order one of each maybe? ;)

They are not that expensive.. and they got great reviews..
