How long do you need.
Sys do different lengths, I got the 6.5cm one.
I also got a cable with the Hugo which is longer, too long for me.

I stream digital Blueray movies thru the Oppo's coax to the Hugo and the results are amazing! HOME THEATER IS JUST PLAIN FUN WITH THE HUGO IN THE SIGNAL CHAIN. The sound stage is so much bigger now with my JH16 FREQPHASE......HUGE SOUNDS WHIRLING AROUND MY HEAD coming off these Blueray movie tracks! Hook the Hugo up to your blueray player.......You will be glad you did!!!:gs1000smile:

They fit the Hugo securely, handle 24/192 fine, and sound good.
i will contact them as it seems they are the only one out their suitable for Hugo.

30 to 50 cm is the right length for me.

We are up and running at Munich High-End Show 2014

 

Try to get there if you can it looks to be a fantastic Event.. :tongue_smile:

 

The new products are a unique dampened turntable-stand that integrates with full-sized separates of the Chord range... and a new range of stand for the Chord Choral range.

 

Updates & Photo's will be posted over the next few days.

 

 

 

 

Help Please - a mate of mine has a 'iPod Classic 160gb' and wants to know how he can connect to the Hugo... he's tried the camera-kit route with no luck but has heard there is a connector that will work out there... can someone please advise me where to get a cable that will work, many thanks for any advice.

I really wish I could afford the hugo, so my next question would be what other dac/amp is close to it in SQ and less pricey  like up to 1000 USD.

 

Does hugo have a lower dac/amp portable that is reasonably priced and great SQ

SeeTeeYou... I heard a rumour that you can use a cable that connects a iPod Classic to the 'Centrance Hi-Fi M8'... could this be used with the Hugo?

One of the Hi-Fi M8 supports iDevices.

Seeyoutoo,

The Hugo does indeed need the +5V to wake up the HD USB receiver (not to power it, but in order to preserve battery power the Hugo HD USB is off till it sees a voltage).  And there's no tricking it either (i.e pulling the power once on) cuz it turns off the port when the 5V is no longer there.

That's strange. I've DIYed quite a few USB cables for my Hugo and all it needs is data +, data - and ground for the source and Hugo to make handshake. I don't have the +5V cable connected connected on both ends and even skipped the +5V cable in some of my cables. No problem for the Hugo to handshake and decode hi-res data from the source as long as the ground is connected.
