    Not exactly Hugo-related but I thought it was fun to watch. I wonder if the Hugo is built to the same standard?

    After demo Hugo and watched that youtube, I seriously suspect the folks at Chord are from outer space.

    Have you used it with the TU-05 yet?
  6. jamato8 Contributor
    I have a bit of an ouch here in Alaska. Will have to den with the bears to keep warm.

    No, not tried with the ASP TU-05.

    It is my friend's Hugo. I don't have one, and probably won't buy one as I cannot find uses for it to justify purchase.

    Any suggestions on how to get one in USA from international dealer/distributor? Just found out local one won't have one for me in at least a month which really means 2 months or more.

    Congrats...use your 901, it will keep you warm for cheap :wink:

    Custom Cable in the UK got me mine. They were good to deal with.

    Update: got around to trying different combinations of files and devices. I tried files on the AK100 & an iPad (using Ampliflac & a Lightning-USB connector). The Hugo shows the 192k & 176k files and the sound is good using the iPad-Ampliflac, the AK100 was fine on 44kHz & below, struggles on 96k files, and seems to output nothing on 192k files. I tried 32Gb & 64Gb cards, no difference.

    Don't know if it is the same issue (I'm not familiar with the technical terms), my AK100 outputs 96k files (AIFF & FLAC) in garbled form, and produces nothing with higher res FLAC files. Pity, it doesn't have a problem with 2x 64Gb SD cards.

    Nope, mine struggles on anything from about 76k up, and refuses on 176k & 192k. I have the current firmware, maybe they are different hardware versions.

    Hey guys, any more impression, so far I have heard its super duper awesome & rival desktop Dac of any price and wipe the portable DAP/Dac/Amp off the floor sparkling clean... so far I like what I read..and even the all new AK240 is not its match so far..
    How does it sound like?  How is it compared to your other reference gear.. how is the bass/Mid/treble, is it warmth or analytical, sound stage, detail PRAT etc..
    Thanks Folks

    Well not any price - it loses to emm Dac2x, dcs stack, light harmonic da Vinci.
