I no longer have any Samsung gear but usually just a USB-OTG adapter plus installing USB recorder pro on the phone or something...OTG adapter is cheap and there shohld be trial version of that software....

I agree that the cross feed function is quite subtle but it is noticeable to me. I find that it's very effective on some early jazz recordings, for example.

USBAPP from the play store should sort you out quite nicely smily_headphones1.gif

Indeed it will, but... is USBAPP still THE ONLY PLAYER that can stream 24/192 out to the HUGO?  

 

I will really prefer a player with a better playlist support and a better User Interface. But audiophile and with at least 24/96 support.

 

USBAPP interface looks very Basic compared to some other Android Players like BlackPlayer

Having followed the complications of having a music server/player with sufficient storage I wondered if this new goody might help. Sony HAP-Z1ES.

I don't understand all the ins and outs of all the various ways to connect. So forgive me it is a silly suggestion.

 

To be honest I have been put afford even thinking of buying either a Hugo or AK240 given all the problems everyone has mentioned. I have but dislike the AK100 UI and short battery life. I am forever charging it rather than listening to it and I hate having to sue my fingers and constantly miscue what I want, I  prefer a screen that allows the use of a small plastic pointer.

Not I, am getting the Hugo in two days from Moon Audio.  Unfortunately I won't be able to try it out till my return to the U.S. come June.  I wasn't going to wait and take a chance on availability come mid May.  Us grey audiophiles have hardly begun to take note and action on the Hugo.  When we do, look out.  It's a ground breaker for sure.

To update my earlier comments on Hugo not playing well, via Bluetooth, with my LG G2, iTouch, iPad, Dell Venue Pro 8 tablet... I confirm that adjusting the position of Hugo's receiver had no effect.  

 

Whether lying flat on a wood table or standing vertically pointed directly at the source transmitter, the end-result audio would still have pops, ticks, high freq whines, and just sound lousy overall.

 

Happily, the Asus ME302C tablet has no such problems.  It's a BT3.0 device, doesn't demonstrate ticks or hum, and the BT audio sound quality is pretty damn good.  If AptX truly sounds better than this, I will be very impressed.

 

But, that said, no love connecting the ME302C to the Hugo via USB, whether through straight micro to micro, OTG to micro, through either of Hugo's USB inputs.

 

The Hugo recognizes that it's connected to a device, b/c the audio freq indicator lights up when I toggle to the USB input, but no sound is being sent to the Hugo.  The Hugo connected / played audio via USB with all the other aforementioned devices.

 

Suggestions?

I have tried with Itouch (latest model)  & Note3 (APtX) and there is a lot static noise on the right side. But the strangest thing is, when I place the note 3 on top of the Hugo back, the sound quality is perfect, no more noise. Same for Itouch. So I am not really sure if this is an  aptx problem but more on the distance base on this experiment. The moment I lift up the note 3 and place right next to Hugo, the noise came back. Hah.. 

 

I want to point out that the the sound is really good (Device place right on top of Hugo's back).. almost as good as USB connection. If they can fix/update firmware or whatever, I can stream from my note 3 at the front pocket and Hugo in my back pocket, that will be superb. No more man's purse.

I view Bluetooth as convenience only. Eg playing background music at party or dinner. For real listening, coax or usb.

Bueller?  Bueller?

 

If I missed your reply then I apologise, but I want to get these ordered, probably a 20cm version and a 3m version, both mini plug to Toslink, but I don't know if their standard metal headshell will fit the Hugo, or if I need the shell-less versions instead.  Thanks.

Never mind, Sysconcept have got back to me and confirmed I need the shell-less version; they even sent me a picture of a Hugo with one attached!

I have the Hugo and I have Sysconcepts, have for years. The shell fits, it fits mine anyway. There was an image and the cable did not appear to be in all the way, it wasn't. They needed to push a little harder, It had nothing to do with the shell, the first snap in is stiff. The opening on my Hugo is 11mm. I use only the 1500 fiber. This is the only one you want. It easily outperforms the solid core and is more flexible.

can you post the image of HUGO+Sysconcept ?

post #2205 of 8890

Yeah, I went for the 1300 strand version as that seemed sensible.  I already have the Audioquest Vodka (which is also multi-strand) and that worked well between my Oppo and my NAD M51, but it doesn't fit the Hugo and would need an adaptor for my Macbook anyway, so I got a new cable instead.

 

They've given me permission to post the picture:
