the 3rd March being operative... stands to reason if you buy before Monday the price will remain what it is now.
you might want to phone or email Phil from Custom-Cables for confirmation http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/
No MK2 nor MK3, The Hugo is the Hugo is the Hugo. Original Chassis and a slightly modified chassis with some more space for larger cables! These units are hopefully due in a few weeks time but will have all the same spec, inputs, outputs etc etc.
I wasn't going to name the dealer here in case it was a genuine mistake.
I will say that it said it's a bricks-and-mortar outfit, who have been around a long time. Whilst I've never actually bought anything from them, they have always been friendly and professional when I've contacted them in the past.
That said, if Phil is correct, it's a bit lame that they've already put through the price increase in advance of it actually happening...
Yes, I received mine today! Master Rudi is a top head-fier who helped me to dodge the price increase.
I must buy him a nice dinner at a 5-star hotel when he visits Hong Kong next time.
Terrible pics, but you get the idea:
I've only had limited time to mess with it, but so far so good. Fed it from the Toslink out of my Resonessence Labs Invicta Mirus which may be a bit overkill.... but it's what I had ready to go at that moment.
This far I've tried it with LCD-2, HD800, Noble 4C, and Westone ES5 - a good mix of dynamic, planar, and armature based designs. I love the inky background, no hiss with CIEMs, yet plenty of drive for the bigger cans.
