With the ipad, DSD is streamed to Hugo natively using DOP over usb, hence no conversion inconsistencies. DSD playback with ipad/Hugo is definitely the best I heard with the Hugo so far. For other hi-res formats, it a close call. So factoring in the all the music file formats that I'll be using with the Hugo, I definitely favor the SQ with the iDevice/Hugo setup. The only down side is storage capacity, which I hope Android base devices can come into rescue in future....

I agree about storage issue.  have you investigated some HD/Wifi enabled solutions like  kingston MobileLite Wireless  or  AirStash.that seems to be a "magic" solution ?

I don't think the HF player app can access network/wifi connected storage yet, the music files have to be scyned to the ipad via in app upload :(

There are a lot of similar solutions from Sandisk, Kingston, Patriot etc.

I groaned alot when France scored that last minute 'try' against England in Paris last week... almost made me want to start another 100year war.

 

still Napoleon was only slightly bigger than le Hugo... and not as functional... :wink_face:
