Chord Hugo - Page 229

post #3421 of 8232

Yeah, I don't see this as a practical problem at all. I'm fine with it. Charging the batteries faster probably introduces more problems.

When we set the Chord to line out mode. Are I my the RCAs providing a line out signal or the two 3.5 and 1/4inch jacks all providing a line out signal too?

Regarding the cable, I just realised that I've actually been using the optical cable supplied with the Hugo with my Oppo. The cheap cable I referred to is the one I'm using with my AK120 (sorry, my fault). Does anyone know whether the cable that comes with the Hugo is limited to 24/96? I've just tried to play a blu-ray disc from Neil Young's Archives set (which is supposed to be 24/192) and while it outputs sound, it's only showing the Orange/Yellow colour on the Hugo. 
yes the optical cable you get with the hugo does 24/192.

Thanks for your reply. I wonder why the Hugo isn't showing Dark Blue (which indicates 192 KHz) in that case.

Well mine didnt support 24/192.

bit concerning this also happens with the hugo, any way to address this?

Why is there concern? My Hugo run the whole day without power off. nOtEcH said his friend's unit power off only after running 36 hours continuously. Unless you plan to not to sleep then the batteries would have time to recharge no?

I can live with it as well. No biggie. Only practical problem would be if playing all day while plugged in and then unplug to go camping for the week end it would not be 100% charged. But then again.. how many less minutes of play time are we talking about?

I am going to use a Goal Zero Sherpa 100 out camping though.. so it will never be a problem for me, not even in theory. wink.gif

Anyone needing some very high quality RCA cables for their Hugo, I have just found some that fit perfectly :D

check your players setting,or it could be it's not in 192khz.i downloaded zz top from hd tracks last week which is 192khz and comes up dark blue when playing.

What we need is more portable friendly RCA cables, some short RCA-3.5mm cables. 

post #3430 of 8232

Well, I just tried a USB stick into the Oppo and the 96KHz tracks played perfectly through the Hugo (Green Light) but the 192KHz didn't work at all. It must be a limitation in the optical cable as I've checked the settings on the Oppo and I'm pretty sure they're correct.

could you try a coaxial cable and see what happens.the optical cable I got with my hugo has got some clear plastic cover caps attached 2 both ends of the cable.

Audiowood,

 

Nice job with your selection and thank you for sharing the pic's..  As a heavy commuter I've been wondering what other people's have regarding there version of the Hugo "portable rig".  Please post your pics and setups?  I'm also looking forward to Cords solution as well (hopefully very soon).

 

As a commuter I was wondering about the use of the optical cable vs coax in terms of:

Durability;

sound quality;

and practicality.  

 

The Note is a large but offers advantages too.  How much on-board memory do you have?

 

Sincerely,

Speedracer1

Sorry, I don't have a spare coaxial cable at the moment. I have the same optical cable with the clear plastic cover caps.

Unfortunately it seems a bit hit and miss as to whether the supplied optical cables works with 24/192.
