The legend, remastered. The world’s most advanced transportable DAC/Headphone Amp has undergone a drastic redesign - Welcome to Hugo 2.

Beginning with 26,000 taps back in 2013 with the original Hugo, Hugo 2 now has an incredible 49,152 and uses techniques developed over the past four years to deliver a stunningly clear audio performance, such has never been heard from a mobile DAC/Headphone Amp before.

Hugo doesn’t just deliver better performance and measurements, it’s got all new casework developed by Chief Designer - John Franks, increases PCM support to 768kHz and adds up to DSD512 (Octa-DSD) native playback, now includes four filter options, remote control functionality, increased Bluetooth range, and sports Micro USB charging.

Available early 2017

This should sound a lot better than Hugo TT... Tap count is almost double and 10 element pulse array instead of 4 elements in Hugo/Hugo TT. Also, the output power appears to be even better.

Remote control! Well, I guessed that bit right.

Does the Bluetooth support AAC codec or do iOS devices default to SBC?
