I have been told by multiple people that the new version of Hugo sounds better than the first version.... This is not a fact I have verified myself and also not a complaint... it would be good if someone who has access to both versions and validate if this claim is true...
That is just the point it's rumors. And I do not do rumors. I do facts. I have offered to open mine up and post pics with SER number and the side profile. And if someone else cares let me know but I am not going to be the only one doing this . Also I have a very new one by my SER number i would think we need people sub 10 k in SER number for it to matter. The very least is the mystery of why the black and red and no red and white RCA jacks. This if anything else makes no sense unless a company wants it to clear the them of a design change . This sis a mystery I would like a honest answer too. But unfortunately owners never can be and then the reps do no better. And this is not pointed at chord as all of the companies do this. It must be this way just to stay in business and I get this. But a little fact from the company would dispel many rumors. Ted b mentioned something about the usb changing , his does he know this ? And why not a public posting of it.
Later today I will do what I said but for those who can help do so. Or of not lets just stop caring about the changes and play the music and enjoy. I am too old for pure conjecture about a product I paid over two k usd for and for once i a lucky to get the so called newer version or do I have that turned around and the older ones are lucky. See how this goes.
