I believe the asking price of Hugo suggests that it will outperform the HM-901. Any comparison between the two will be highly appreciated especially in handling highres FLAC files.
Seriously thinking to get one later on this year after the inital rush.
Have not had any issues with FLAC files - this is my default format for PCM and DSF for DSD. Still a bit early to put in final judgement but my mind is coming around to thinking the Hugo's real competition is with big DAC's not portable ones. I like it better than the Mytek and the Benchmark DAC2. Haven't put it side by side with the Eximus but leaning toward's the Hugo.... Would be curious if someone did a shootout with the Aurelac Vega.
It's not every day you hear a DAC which brings some surprises and smiles - when you hear it you take notice. Just commenting on the D/A conversion here and not the amp side - since I'm using IEM's this is not a real issue headphone users take note - your mileage will vary. If anyone would like to lend me a pair of LCD-X would be more than happy to try it out
