I am disappointed that dealers and mfg'ers are giving misinformation about Hugo. I have a dear friend who I have convinced would love the Hugo. He, on my recommendation (among others), uses the Totaldac D1 USB cable (one of my fave 3, the others being PPA red and JCAT). All three work just fine, thank you, with the Audioquest $9.99 microUSB adapter (no trimming required in my case version, no sq issues). But he's being told to sell the cable and buy micro cables because it is incompatible. C'mon. Sell quality and value, not misinformation.
Thanks for that info ted_b, I just bought that adaptor to use with my cardas cable. I bought the Moon Audio Micro USB Silver Dragon for the Hugo, and in my system and using my speakers (Magnepan 3.7i) using that cable makes the sound very bright, I'm going to give it a couple more weeks then probably return it, if the sound doesn't change.
