PS: i am not really worried about the 24/192 quality, it is just that I cannot play it without re-formatting it and I find that cumbersome. I've heard that AK1xx do not output 24 bit signals anyway. 


U can try a better optical cable that supports highres 24/192 Eg. Fiio L12S or Custom made from Sysconcept

That's simply isn't true all the chord cables work fine the problem is in the square to round adapters that some people were using to play with A and K units. Chord now supply both square to square and square to round cables. These all work well up to 192 k

No idea. I only played 16/44 files.

We should have a couple of ways to stream DSD via Wi-Fi networks. 1st one is more universally supported on multiple platforms and they actually added support for transcoding DSD files (*.DSF / *.DSF) to DoP format automatically since MinimServer version 0.70

 

http://minimserver.com/relnotes.html

 

Freely available for almost all computers as well as popular NAS devices

 

http://minimserver.com/downloads/index.html

 


 

2nd one is Windows 8/7/Vista/XP only and Media Go version 2.7 is also available from Sony for free

 

http://cagcdn.sonycreativesoftware.com/mediago27/edf204b8-b9a8-40cf-8715-597ab6898fb2/2.7/1/mediago_setup.exe

 

http://mediago.sony.com/enu/features/file-formats

 

Both DSD64 and DSD128 are supported in addition to pretty much all lossless audio formats except for *.APE and *.ISO etc.

 


 

Finally we just have to figure out what UPnP / DLNA clients to run on our iOS 7.X / Android 4.X devices.

 

Both Sony ZX1 / F880 series should have this particular one by default

And there really are tons and tons of choices out there, we just have to figure out which one works best with DoP output for Hugo while NOT converting to PCM on-the-fly

Has anyone compared the CLAS -dB to the Hugo? Is the difference in SQ worth the upgrade?

You're very welcomed. Many things should require further testing and I'm still awaiting my Hugo to be shipped.

 

Basically both PlugPlayer and Kinsky seemed to be good for DSD?

Apparently Bubble UPnP doesn't recognize the dff mime-types (like most UPnP control points). Fortunately you can change this behaviour in Bubble UPnP. Just start Bubble UPnP and go Settings -> UPnP Tweaks (scroll down) and uncheck 'Mime-type check'. This will force playback the dff file.

Still not sure how it works on travel, let's make it simple. Suppose I have a wifi harddisk, such as the seagate Wireless Plus 1T wifi Hard disk, then what do I need to do (such as what software is needed to install on this wifi harddisk) so that I can stream the 192khz flac from the harddisk to the iphone, then to the Hugo while traveling outside? 

post #2110 of 7131

Hopefully your Hugo will be with you very soon. If only there is a small/ cheap network player/ streamer solution...... :)

We've gotta learn to walk before we can run, for now it's still all about testing what hardware/software combo will work best at home first. After that, we could start looking for what's actually good for a transportable rig.

 

The tricky part is relatively low power consumption while providing the means to add massive amount of storage via mSATA or 2.5" SATA etc. In other words, it better runs off 5V power so we could most likely count on an internal battery with 3.7V to begin with.

 

This $99 board from Intel could be a starting point for running MinimServer but the lack of built-in Wi-Fi means that we'll have to occupy its USB 3.0 port for 802.11ac

 

http://www.minnowboard.org/meet-minnowboard-max

 


 

And then we've got the bulky Cubietruck with 2.5" SATA and an option to add an internal battery

 

http://www.cnx-software.com/2014/02/28/11-ewell-cubietruck-case-supports-2-5-sata-hard-drive-and-battery

 

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=36670605934

 

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=36936870555

 


 

Those are the headless servers and we could also go for 8" tablet running Windows 8.1 such as ThinkPad 8. Max internal storage should be 128GB plus 128GB microSDXC.

 

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 does have that 256GB SSD option but it's quite heavy and super expensive.

 

Too add external storage via USB, we could go for mSATA ones (up to 1TB at the moment) plus an enclosure like this

http://www.amazon.com/MyDigitalSSD-Bullet-Proof-Enclosure-Adapter/dp/B00AYIDDMA

 


 

Finally we could also "hack" those Seagate wireless 2.5" drives and put MinimServer on there, provided that hardware is indeed powerful enough to serve DSD files wirelessly

 

http://forum.minimserver.com/showthread.php?tid=550

 

Yet another similar combo with 2TB or even 4TB on the go

From what I had noticed the demand and supply are catching up, all the Australian sellers are already on their second batch with their updated casing, not bad. 


Here ya :smile: ,

But I'm sure Chord stocked up on necessary components well before release.  All it takes is one important component to lapse and fall behind.  Apple is a great case in point.  Chord is a smitten smaller than Apple, so I'm sure their production abilities are a bit smaller.  (Being facetious :wink_face:)

 

Now I'm not saying you should rush out and buy the Hugo before careful considerations, but if your going to eventually buy it regardless, better to do it now while it's available.  Just my 2 cents.  Otherwise roll the dice, price increase, sold out hard to find.  It's possible!


Apple wishes they made something as truly awesome as the Hugo.

I am so pleased and impressed with Chord (and my dealer and NA Chord distributor). I had the early production model and USB input popped off. Got a new unit lickety split and loving it. With this new unit the cross feed seems to be working differently too (better). All is well in Hugo-ville.
