Briefly, the TT2 is more explicit than the Hugo 2, without ever leaving the centre of the Goldilocks zone. It's not bright in any way, or ever even hints at unnecessarily being too analytical. (Balance between detail and body of sound is perfect.) Getting used to its presentation, from its higher detail level takes some time too. It's not just that, as the pro-reviews say, sounds are solidly etched in the soundstage. Sounds are more vivid too. (Please don't see this as a look down on the Hugo 2, as for me the Hugo 2 is perfectly balanced.) Rather like when I had a Mojo, I imagined the Hugo 2 would be more detailed. (I imagined the same of the TT2 over the Hugo 2.) … However I couldn't exactly conceive how more detail would sound on the Hugo 2, compared to the Mojo. I had ideas, but was not very close to the mark of how good the Hugo 2 would be. (RE: TT2, I have even thought that the extra detail and tonality, has made some tones sound slightly different pitched. Don't quote me on that though.) With the 96K taps of the TT2, you think just how will those taps make performance above the Hugo 2. Plus will the better power delivery, result in better music/sound be like. The TT2, like you imagine, is better and better in ways not foreseen. The TT2 is a surprise, as well as being somewhat calmly anticipated. The TT2 is also down to earth in its signature, and in no way flashy or fatiguing. The TT2 doesn't fatigue at all, meanwhile you're entranced by what is happening. One other thing that the TT2 does to me, is make it very hard to move. If I am at my desk as like now I can be doing things, and listening. It is incredible even at that. However if I listen only to music, I am transfixed. I can't move. I don't want to move, or open my eyes, or think. Even against my will sometimes, I will be unable to move when I want to do something. ….. This is with only moderate (but class leading) amp, speakers, and cabling. With the Hugo 2, for the first month all I did was listen to music. However the TT2 is almost more tactile of how it puts you in your place. I still need to use the Hugo 2 again for some time, to further compare Hugo 2 vs TT2. I have already made some ideas and drafted them, but that's mostly from Hugo 2 memory. More Hugo 2 / TT 2 impressions to come then maybe.
