    24bit vs 16bit, the myth exploded!

    As a newbie, I was quite confused because often the phrases, "24-bit" and "resolution", are used together. I later learned that the bit depth is indicative of the dynamic range, and not finer-grained resolution of a static loudness range. Hopefully, we can have a thread on popular Hi-Fi...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Thank you! I don't have a Dave yet, but planning to acquire one within a year. I simply wish to avoid going through a cycle of cable upgrades.   Would you happen to know how much a Platinum headphone cable costs? It isn't clear from the WyWires website.

    Chord Electronics - Hugo 2 - The Official Thread

    I will obviously choose the better DAC, and I will obviously miss the music quality that I'm not getting because of it. I will still purchase Hugo 2. And I will be sad. That's why I'm asking Chord. Help.

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Proof of the pudding is in the eating.   The idea is sound, but taking into account our poor short-term audio memory, comparing cables over a 30 minute listening session won't be helpful in deciding which one has the best signature; it will help deciding which ones are bad, though. Finding a...

    Chord Electronics - Hugo 2 - The Official Thread

    That was before Universal joined the bandwagon. While I didn't care much for it earlier, now I'm afraid that the community will be strong-armed into having high quality recordings being made available for streaming only through MQA. In that case, a $2200+ investment will end up with restricted...

    If I were to have something like a Chord Dave with Ether C Flow (I'm only interested in closed-back headphones), would you recommend upgrading from DUM cables? Perhaps, @mrspeakers can chime in too.

    My apologies, I may have been mislead by a blog. Would something like Roon work? It may be too expensive for most, of course.

    Chord Electronics - Hugo 2 - The Official Thread

    While I believe that MQA is not responsible for the higher SQ of TIDAL Masters, I'm confident (and afraid) that Warner + Universal will succeed in shoving it down our throats. At this point, unless MQA support can be enabled through a software update, I may have to reconsider my Hugo 2...

    Good time to request MQA support? There's still time

    It's a big relief :) This is the first time I'm seeing this too. There was also an earlier mention of OTA software updates which could potentially enable functionality, such as, Poly acting as a Wi-Fi hub.   Things like these should boost people's confidence that Poly is, indeed, a very...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    I'm experiencing an odd issue with my Mojo. On some occasions, touching the body causes it to shut down. Since this came up only during winters, my guess would be static on my fingers is somehow responsible. Is this to be expected?   PS: Apologies for "touching the body" pun on V-Day.
