Chord Hugo - Page 84

post #1246 of 7787

That's the spirit! Then if you do regrettably depart this mortal coil I can steal your Hugo and use it for my dual mono configuration. :wink_face:

Let's face it, it's just a silly little silver box with electronics in it, not like it's gonna change my life is it?I been without it for 41 years and I've survived so what's the big deal

Chord have blocked my no so can't ring them anymore, at least we were on first name terms and not many ppl can say that
post #1251 of 7787
I'll get the rest of the family to take it in turns to ring up pretending they bought one and see if they have better luck speeding up production, if not I might call at the factory

Stone Audio are legendary for not having things in stock

a google search will tell you more about them.

Maybe you could drive on over to the factory, and give them a hand? Don't forget to bring a screwdriver ...you got it bad, and need a fix...

Toshiba is coming out with an interesting wireless adapter to make any HDD into a wireless storage device just like Seagate's Wireless Plus. Good for expanding storage and streaming music to your iDevices acting as transport to Hugo. The adapter is very small just measuring 48 x 63.5 x 10mm and weighs 24g. Then you can hook it up to a 1.8" 256GB SSD e.g. the Transcend ESD200 that measures just 92 x 62 x 10.5mm and weighs 56g and the entire setup is smaller than the Wireless Plus and at half the weight. Instead of stacking the adapter and the SSD, you can also hook it up side-by-side and it then becomes half in thickness too. Similar footprint as Wireless Plus but at half its thickness and weight.

Heya, I wish I could but my hands are tied by my boss with that one! Obviously we do have stock of the original chassis and I have seen the new chassis and the differences are not that big. The stereo RCA holes have been made slightly bigger but if you don't need it connected to a HiFi then there would be no difference.

Is the on/off switch the same as before?  Noticed elsewhere that there's been some criticism of it being fiddly to operate when a usb cable is connected.

I am pretty sure the old stock will be discounted as naturally most people will choose the new ones. Although, I have a feeling that the delay with the new chassis has nothing to do with production but more with Chord's need to shift as many as possible from the old stock out.
