Okay it seems that macbook pro seems to not to output more than 24/96 and it seems that once again it comes down to cable.

Make sure the cable can do 24/192. Maybe ask VdH. 

post #2675 of 7899

Yes this cable is certified for speed of 250 Megabyte/sec so that should certainly cover the 9 mbps speed needed for 24/192 wav file.

It seems that AK120 optical out to HUGO is the problem, it just seems the two do not want to work with each other using 24/192 signal, I am so lost, any one out there can shine some light on this?

If the Hugo has the larger RCA the opto recess is 12.3 mm dia ask VDH for the diameter of the plug end

I have the VDH Optocoupler but the connector doesn't fit into the Hugo optical input hole. Too bad, it's one of the best optical I've heard.

Naked Hugo turned out to sound different / more opened?

I could envision the popularity of customized replacement cases (CNC / 3D-printing) for those of us who would like to keep Hugo at home without worrying about those recessed jacks anymore. Wood or bamboo could be interesting choices since some Chinese sellers were already making external cases iPhone 5S etc. It's like 50 bucks or so a piece so maybe we could most likely keep that under $100 for Hugo?

My secondary Hugo was actually ordered during recent sales for that particular purpose.

It all sounds a bit delusional . "An open pcb sounds more open ".... Try dipping the pcb board in warm chocolate fudge for richer deeper sound stage.... seems like you are desperate to find and make anything that you can sell alongside Hugo to the weak minded and gullible.

Has anyone here tried using a DX90 or X5 with a hugo? Which unit has the best coax out quality?

I really should've waited and bought this, or should I say, buy this in the future. I know this is a headphone web site, but I'm here for the dac discussions. I'm more of a home stereo kind of guy, although I am really interested in the new Oppo headphones, but first on my list is the Magnepan 3.7i that will be my big purchase this year, I'll be going from the 1.6 qr to the 3.7i should be a big difference. The hugo is mainly for the portable crowd, although it can play very well in a home set up, which was how I was using it. The upgraded QBD has more connections, which is what I am looking for in a home dac.

The DX90 has the same coax output as DX50, so as a pure source, the DX50 makes more value. Not sure how they compare to the X5 though...

I owned the 3.7. Amazing speaker for the money and beats most anything $20k and under. I loved mine but was able to get a good deal on Magico S5s. Had to go to that level to justify making a change. And there are days when I miss the Maggies just for their sheer value to dollar ratio.

Wow! Those are some very nice looking speakers, but way out of my price range. I heard those speakers are like one of the best speakers in the world. I'm going for the biggest bang for the buck, thus the 3.7i's and the Hugo dac both punch way above their weight class.
