That is indeed true, but I wouldn't call it too thick. Balanced is ADI-2 DAC, Hugo 2 is just sharp to me. Literally sold it and preferred Mojo even though it cannot compete in technicality. I guess my headphones aren't expensive enough to appreciate the difference though *shrug*.To me the Mojo is too thick and muted in the treble with higher end headphones but sound really good with cheaper headphones, as it was designed to (i didnt know this until a long time after i had one though) Hugo 2 is far more balanced and transparent without being harsh or too bright but its a massive jump in price to get there from Mojo. I recommend Hugo 1 for people with £400+ headphones/IEMS and Hugo 2 if money is no problem for you.
Or maybe I just have different preferences than you or people who don't like Mojo. Thankfully we both have options to choose from instead of wanting everything to be homogeneous in this highly subjective hobby.
