    Chord 2Go & 2Yu Wired/Wireless Network streamer and S/PDIF adaptor - Official thread

    I've owned some pretty great DAPs including the M15, SP2000, 220EX+amp8EX. I personally modded the iBasso PCBs, and the production design of amp8EX is almost identical to my version of Whitigir's brilliant mod. We are free to disagree and that's why all these great DAPs exist. To my ears...

    Chord 2Go & 2Yu Wired/Wireless Network streamer and S/PDIF adaptor - Official thread

    Well then, you're not going to like this either (grin). Here's some more praise of Chord. (I have no affiliation to the company whatsoever. They "paid" for these endorsements by earning them through the hard work it took to create these devices). An Ode 2 2Go, or what I learned from my Project...

    Chord 2Go & 2Yu Wired/Wireless Network streamer and S/PDIF adaptor - Official thread

    Okay, first of all, hilarious. Second of all, yeah, the thought had crossed my mind! Dave is significantly cheaper than the Bartok-headphone model. However, now that I'm adding a network streamer/server, regenerators, etc. etc. the Bartok is looking like a bargain. And, the dCS is all neatly...

    I saw that too. Sept 1 seems hopeful and realistic, though it would be great if it came sooner. I'm purchasing a stop-gap player for the summer and would love not to do that.

    @muski, I have the same questions you have. I'm hoping that since the 2Go is connected to the network router over wifi it can still assign the necessary addresses, and send that over the ethernet connection to the Rendu. As you said, though I don't know if this will actually work.

    Hi. Wait, you're using Wifi too? This has been really interesting. I've been trying to make clear, that Wifi is not the configuration that I think will improve SQ. I'm trying to see if 2Go can establish a wired ethernet connection with the Rendu, without any noise contamination from a...

    That's awesome. I have a few questions if you don't mind: - Did you go direct from 2Go to UltraRendu or did you use a network switch? - How was the sound quality compared to your usual player/server? What is your usual player/server? - Would you test higher sample rates, e.g., 768? I know...

    Mark thank you for this. I'm going to be able to test this myself tomorrow, but this is really promising. Please don't detach the Hugo2. The 2Go does not work without the H2 attached. The tiny power led goes on if you plug it in, but it's not operational. The power on button is on the Hugo side...

    There is a lot of fascinating potential here. What I'm thinking of is actually something quite different than the way 2Go is currently being used. This has nothing to do with convenience, but rather achieving the highest sound quality possible for a desktop DAC. High quality network music...

    Happy for you. Sad for me. I really dislike the idea of my soldering iron sitting by so cold and idle. I'll be looking on just for the joy of it. I will hope for the wind at your back, and every once in a while, that you can look up from the bench to feel the sun on your faces. Most of all...

    That's a pretty cool use-case too. I was aware that it could function this way if you put it in wifi hotspot mode. I was asking about a very different use-case. I was wondering if I could turn the the H2Go into a dedicated network music server over ethernet. Thank you though, because you did...

    Chord 2Go & 2Yu Wired/Wireless Network streamer and S/PDIF adaptor - Official thread

    Hi, I've talked with Chord dealers and even the guys at Sound Organization (the new US distributor) and none of them thought this was possible. One of them said that I could do it over wifi but not ethernet. So I wanted to verify with you if I could. You have the H2Go connected to your...

    Chord 2Go & 2Yu Wired/Wireless Network streamer and S/PDIF adaptor - Official thread

    Is anyone using the H2Go as a music server? I've only been thinking of going into the H2Go not out of it, but I see that one of the features listed for 2Go is: music server. I thought I'd have to wait for 2Yu to get music out of the unit. This seems like I could connect H2Go by its LAN...
