Conclusively the Optichord does NOT fit the Hugo and so please do not purchase it for this purpose. However the only decent quality Optical that we do that fits is the van den Hul Optocoupler! Tell everyone! LOL

 

I have just taken a picture of the latest version for you, I hope it helps.

 

 

 

   I think    a lot of the blame for this confusion is to do with me,I thought the Chord Optical cable looked good.I had no idea it would not fit,"a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing ",etc,etc.

   Phil,what are your thoughts on Hugo with USB,Optical,or coaxial? Thanks.

Personal opinion only and from experience of me only trying my Sonos with optical and coax I prefer the coaxial....

 

Regards

 

Phil

the optical cable I got with the hugo does 24/192.the van den hul, the optocoupler mk 2 does not do 24/192, or is there a different version of this cable?

I'd recommend just getting the sysconcept one. It support 24/192 and connectors fit snuggly. It's not an audio company but they specialized in making optical fibre cables and other optical fibre related products. Can customize length, shape (U shape for stacking or normal cable), thickness of the cable, and color of the connectors (both toslink or 3.5mm).

I found that the optical cable that came with my Hugo supports 24/192, out of the AK240 at least.

Lucky you, mine didn't. Mine is the revised case/package version.

Are you sure you clicked it in far enough?

I have the Blue Dragon Optical cable from Moon Audio and it fits the Hugo (revised case) and my Mac Mini very we'll. Also looks to be well made...

Any comments on what it does to the sound?

Yes. And I don't think I'm the only one who reported stock not going above 24/96.... (btw this is the stock white short optical toslink to 3.5mm cable pairing with AK240)
