Chord Hugo - Page 196

post #2926 of 14739
I hope it's a Hugo Jr. I'd love something that would be truly portable but sounds as good as the HUGO appears to sound.

Yes the next Hugo will just be called H as it will be that small they can't fit the ugo on it and a free microscope to find where you last left it

How does Chord Hugo sound with Sennheiser HD 650? I wonder what these 2 new models will be.

Can anyone tell me which cable this is, or provide a link?

 

I need a digital coax RCA-to-mini connector where the RCA fits the Hugo.  I tried a Black Dragon but the RCA is too loose.  I know this has been discussed earlier, but I can't seem to find a definite recommendation where someone has actually used it, except for the above.

Stereovox XV2. The company has now changed name to Stereolab and their coaxial cable has now been updated. I have no idea how new version sounds or whether the rca plug will fit or not.

One thing is certain Xhadow RCA will not fit Hugo's coaxial hole (which is very narrow). Best check with Hugo dealers and see which coaxial will fit etc. I think RCA type similar to the pic of XV2 above (i.e. straight exposed petal rca head) would probably be ok.

Don't they make the black cat line of cables?

They'll make you any length you want.  I got 3m and 20cm cables, with a gentle 90 degree bend in the 20cm one.  We exchanged about a dozen emails, including mock-up photos to get the right orientation for the bend, and then they shipped them within 2 hours of confirming the order.  I was a cheapskate so it took a week for the cables to actually cross the Atlantic, but that was my fault... :rolleyes:

 

They fit the Hugo securely, handle 24/192 fine, and sound good.

Thanks for the info!

 

Drew at Moon Audio indicated that the Kimber digital RCA connector is tighter (than the Black Dragon) so he is going to make me one of those. Hopefully that one will work well.

I hooked up a pair of my notoriously hard to drive AKG K1000 headphones to the Hugo last night with great success! LOVE MY HUGO!
