    Very fluid and conversational transaction. Cable arrived in a reasonable time and in great condition. Would happily buy from this gentleman again.

  4. Black Chord Hugo 2 - <300 Hours on Battery

    My beloved Hugo 2 must finally go. I have owned a few of these units over the past few years - mostly shuffling between wanting the black and the silver units. I don't know if I have much new vocabulary to describe the subtle musicality and happiness this unit promises and delivers. If you had...
  5. Mint Condition Headamp GS-X Mini (Matte Black Faceplate) (Opt Extras)

    Here for sale is a like-new condition Headamp GS-X Mini including all original packaging. Justin really sold me on this amp and it has treated me extremely well since December 2020. I have used it with great care to power a pair of Diana Phi, and the sonic bliss has been unparalleled. It adds a...

    Please PM if the sale situation changes. Based in Waterloo, ON, but able to drive down. Not absolutely certain I want to buy just yet, but open to start a conversation (just to set expectations). Cheers

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Hey folks, I *thought* I had read a detailed breakdown of how many of the TT2's ~98k taps were used for each level of upsampling but I can't seem to find a link or quote. I remember there being a few stages to the upsampling performed, some (most?) of which were bypassed when using an Mscaler...

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

    Hey folks, looking for some clarification on some things I've read. Could some folks who own the 2go conform/correct the following? 1. The 2go does not itself have a desktop mode: leaving it plugged in indefinitely will incur hours on the battery as it is still used for power filtering. The...

    Expanding another parallel topic here, @Rob Watts are the Qutest and Hugo 2 DC power supplies (wall warts) identical?

    This was all but necessary for me, regardless of the source on the Utopia. Again, somewhat offtopic here, but I've tried many (5-6) cables for the headphone, and all were strictly better than the stock cable. I'm not sure why (material science wise), but the sound is compressed, muddy, and...

    I haven't understood yet whether we're meant to keep the protection circuit or not in the Hugo 2 batteries. I'll check if/when I get my replacement. Update for anyone following: I've checked with my local dealers and replacement batteries are available for self-installation for roughly $150 CAD...

    (Note: this is a long one. somewhat off topic for Hugo 2, but all descriptions pertain to the headphones directly driven by the Hugo 2) The two I can suggest from personal experience are the Focal Utopia and the Abyss Diana Phi. I have both sitting side by side on my desk right now, being...

    Chord Electronics - Hugo 2 - The Official Thread

    Catching up on this thread in parallel and thought I'd offer a solution. I've tried this on my own stock and custom silver micro USB cable and it works perfectly. Be sure to do it very gently, slowly increasing force if one round isn't enough to create a satisfactory lock. The micro usb...

    It's over an order of magnitude cost difference, especially in Canada: The last relevant quoted price on this thread was $375 USD. The cost of the NCR18650B cells is approximately $35 CAD for the pair, and I am an experienced hand with electronics/soldering work. It would be an appropriate use...
