    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I still use pi3, started with Volumio, but then switched to https://ropieee.org/xl/ very simple and stable, even pulling the power cable from the PI3 doesn't corrupt it.

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    You are using it the right way If you are sitting next to it, I wouldn't change a thing - exactly as you put "another box to add to the chain" and not just because you have to buy it, more because it complicates the chain for no reason. I use my TT2 with speakers, far away from my computers...

    I'd expect this to be true: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/chord-electronics-blu-mk-2-the-official-thread.831343/page-23#post-13446484 and not "a flaky BNC cable"

    Hugo M Scaler by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    WOW, I want you to be very very wrong, but I'm speechless if this is true. Anybody with an oscilloscope to verify? @Mojo ideas We really need to hear from you. These cables do not come with a £200, but a £3495 piece of equipment, really? Please let us be wrong here.

    How likely is your "likely", that would be very bad indeed, considering the price we paid for it. I do not want to believe it and this accusation has to be substantiated.

    Chord Electronics Qutest DAC - Official Thread

    The only Grado I have is MS-1, plugging into a chain with Chord dac in it is always a revelation what a miracle Grado headphones are. There is no soundstage to speak off, but the sound, the sound is on par with all the greatest and expensive headphones I've heard. My Qutest was replaced with...

    FS: Chord 2Qute

    https://chordelectronics.co.uk/product/2qute/ In silver Currently in use it in my desktop chain with headphones which I use very rarely. Really thought I’d never let it go but have one too many Chord’s DACs and some of them better have a new home. There are many DACs that sound very good, but...

    We are taken for a ride here? I should've bought me a crap(how do I spell that) dac with these cables, and it would sound better than Chord?

    If you can prove it. I'm selling all of my Chord gear and will listen to straight iPhone output, it doesn't sound half as bad as most of the solutions here.

    Just imagine Rob Watts fiddling with 20 ferrites on his cables to remedy his design and the rest of "solutions". Imagined?

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    First Mojo, then 2Qute, Qutest, now TT2, I skipped the Hugo2. And a few days ago I was sitting and thinking - how did I get here??? I remember, how it started.. somebody at work gave me to listen to his Grado60, so I ended up with Grado Alessandro MS1 within a few weeks and that was downhill...

    *Sold* Chord Qutest

    I have never heard Rme ADI 2, I'm sure it is excellent from what I've read about it. Lots of current dacs are very very good, I just find Chord to be very special to my brain. They keep the original emotional response intact, I can listen to all kinds of music endlessly. I had noticed that...

    *Sold* Chord Qutest

    Was lucky enough to upgrade to TT2. But honestly I still use Mojo all day long at work and could live with any of the Chord DACs, they are all very special.

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Last Saturday made my own xls to banana cables: My speakers sensitivity is rated at 88 db, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It took a few days to adjust to sound. After few days I lost any desire to reconnect TT2 and speakers to my receiver that I use as a two channel amp, after another two...

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

    Never applied any additional cooling during my 3.5 years with Mojo. I use it every work days for many hours. It stays off on weekends as I have a decent speaker system with other Chord gear :-D Just avoid charging and using at the same time. It became a habit, as I push the power button on, I...
