How does it sound like?  How is it compared to your other reference gear.. how is the bass/Mid/treble, is it warmth or analytical, sound stage, detail PRAT etc..

Thanks Folks

Well not any price - it loses to emm Dac2x, dcs stack, light harmonic da Vinci.

How did you come up with this conclusion?
post #258 of 9083

There  are impressions posted on this site which would lead one to arrive at such a conclusion.  Also there are reviews around the web which make it abundantly clear that this is about as good as it gets.

oh, I am not aware of such impression but it was quite clear to me that Hugo performs exceptionally well when comparing with other portable dac/amp/dap and that the SQ is up to desktop grade.

have to agree... even Jude said the Hugo is the dogs (not his exact words, so you'll have to hunt through the AK240 thread)

think you'll have to wait about another week for Industry reviews... after the Bristol Show (not many Hugo's around)

 

hopefully Jude will chip-in with some more thoughts.

What usb cable did you use out of the cck?

Native DSD sounded awesome, can't think of any portable device right now that can stream DSD to the Hugo except for idevices or a notebook. Probably be getting an ipod touch 64G to make this a more portable setup. I definitely prefer the SQ and battery life of this setup over AK120S>Hugo, maybe there will be Android base devices that can do this in the near future...

As I was searching for more info on Hugo, I stumbled upon this website:

http://www.audionet.com.tw/a/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=5124&page=2#pid32548

 

Chord did a event in Taipei, it was mentioned that optical can support up to 24/192 and coaxial can support up to 32/384. The claim was tested in their lab. However, it also mentioned that there isn't any transport that can do this in the market? and perhaps Chord will be looking into release one in the future?

 

Fingers crossed....

post #266 of 9083

The chord website says the coax is 24/384 max.

I just use the stock USB cable that came with the Hugo coming out from the CCK, Hugo only take micro USB connectors and I can't find any high end cable with USB A > micro. Just bought some diy usb connectors and will be making one up for this setup...
post #268 of 9083
I have purchased this micro USB cable to use with my Hugo - http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/vertere-acoustics-d-fi-usb-interconnect-cable.html - as there's an option to specify USB Type A to USB Micro.

Thanks smial1966, I'll check it out.

post #270 of 9083

My question is this:

Anything paired with Hugo, such as Clip+, Tera , AK120 or any other DAP playing 44.1 or 24 BIT files will sound few times better?

Can anyone please explain.Thanks.
