unfortunately I've never tried both side-by-side so to speak as I gave my WMC-cable away when I bought the Dock/ZX2, I was never happy with the bulk-end of the cable when connecting my old ZX1>Hugo... what I do know is that Sony-Dock provides a better source than my pc to the Hugo which I personally consider to be a big benefit, hth... :normal_smile :

Hhmmm... I'm not so sure.

 

I can easily smooth its sound...

I've got Macbook Air 11 inch and will Chord Hugo DAC play Spofity & Tidal software with good sound quality?

Yes, it will work fine like this.

 

If you can get to a shop to demo one you should do, but the Hugo generally gets a big thumbs up from everyone that hears it.

 

I have been using mine for a month with a macbook pro and an iMac, using Tidal with Roon (https://roonlabs.com) but I recently ditched Tidal because I noticed a lot of tracks I listen to had suddenly become unavailable.

I play Tidal with my iPhone, iPad, and Walkman ZX1, and it sounds great with all.

really nice to see a natural source tube making an appearance... does it get warm when you apply it or is the presentation more cooler?... do the 'vitamins' add anything to the music?... :wink_face: 

 

ps... is the Euro version uncapped or capped like the US one in the photo?

That's just a symbolic picture found in the internet; I have no experience with this natural source cream in its plastic tube. :wink:

 

But to be precise, not all of my amps make the sound smoother – that just applies to the Mapletree Ear++ III and the two Cordas Opera and Symphony. One of the Meier amps makes it even a bit harsher: the Concerto. What all of them have in common, though, is the (partly dramatic) loss of transparency with them in the signal path, the worst being the tube amp, followed by the Concerto.

I've always wanted to get a Valve Power Amp, I know there's limitations but I'm a sucker for a warm detailed sound... would love to try the Hugo-TT with a pair of Quad ll-forty's & Tannoy/Spendor speakers, time for bed & dreams me thinks... :normal_smile :

A good tube/valve amp won't sound warm, it should be fairly neutral. There are many valve amps that are warm but IMO, this is a poor design as tubes can be very linear and truthful to the sound but some designers are lazy and don't work for a clean sound. But if you wan't warm tube sound, there are amps around to accommodate this. The warm glow is what I enjoy. :^)

think the warm-glow to the music is what I was aiming at, I'm crap around terminology and you are reading the internet-ink of the guy walked into a hi-fi dealership asking what the hell is 'timber' in music, dyslexia huh (my excuse)... :wink_face:
