I love the AK240 + Hugo connected by the optical cable came with the purchase. Any suggestions as to which third party optical cable is best with Hugo + AK240?
Try the Sys Concept cables. Superb fit with Hugo and the AK240. So good I bought two in case I lose one.

Thanks!

I presume it's available online?

hi cheznous,

 

    did you use their proposed dimensions for connection from AK240 to Hugo?

 

          "For Hugo/AK240, Toslink to MiniPlug dia. 5mm - 6.5cm c2c 21.deg.".
 

thanks

We'll see, however I don't post reviews here. Will look forward to a connector kit for iPhone from you Drew. Did anyone suggest the Hugo is a terrific match with the LCD-Xes?



Agreed! For the money it's ridiculously good! I just don't think it's seeped through to many audiophiles how revolutionary it is! I've listened to Hugo and the MSB Analog extensively and it is too close to call! IMO. I'm listening through the LCD -X s now. The level of detail and musicality is astonishing. " I'm there"

Desperately waiting for a comparison with the M7 :popcorn:

My new version Hugo came with 3 different optical cables and sounds fuller bodied than my first unit. Yes, the new version does sound slightly better than the first Hugo I had.

Thank you, a really helpful answer. I had no idea.

Are you sure this isn't due to using optical input with your new unit, and, based upon previous posts, you were using coax in with your old?? Even Rob Watts prefers optical...

I wouldn't worry about it. So is mine, and it sounds sublime.

sa92058 is always trying to stir the pot.  I would take this comment with a grain of salt.
