Podeschi, are you still finding the Blue Dragon USB Micro cable your preferred PC connector to the Hugo HD Micro port?

 

On a side note, do you think it worth while to use a high end USB cable for connection from an ADC to the PC?  I'm thinking no, because there is no analogue conversion once the digital information transfers thru the USB cable?  But I hear confliction accounts.


Yes the blue dragon is my favorite. I have the silver dragon and reach more often for the blue...smoother whereas the silver has some bite to it. I never thought a USB cable blue v silver v stock would matter ...but I do hear a difference.

Amplification is a Naim reference system. Hugo line out RCAs into Naim pre-amp.

I use Harbeth speakers these days

Awesome setup!

Thanks for sharing your story. That was fun to read about the speakers being delivered and bryston amps stacked to the ceiling.

There is quite a lot of volume play in a single color. It could be the edge or the beginning of color range and differences is huge with iem

There are 3 changes in volume per colour, each step is 1dB. It was difficult deciding upon a big range to cover lots of headphones, plus having a clearly defined colour (not too many shades that you can't distinguish). I think it's about right given the constraints.

Is it a linear dB scale or some kind of exponential, that offers more precision for iems?

Hi guys,when I been using the hugo with my hd800,ive also been using the hdvd 800 amp with the balance cable,but 2day I thought I'd just use Hugo.i know rob watts thinks this is the best way 2 hear the hugo, all I can say is they both sound amazing.2mor I will test both ways with 1 peace of music and see which 1 is the best.

Its dB, so two colours is doubling or halving output, so you have same resolution irrespective of headphone sensitivity.

May be someone can help: HUGO connected to my MacBook Pro can play songs coming from iTUNE as well as from any SAFARI applications, but... not from CHROME ! Any idea why CHROME do not output to the HUGO ?

Received the 2tb seagate wireless plus today. What format files are required to stream 192 files? It isn't recognizing aif files thru CCK into HD USB. If I change the extension to aiff then it worked sporadically. Any advice?
