    I sincerely appreciate the confirmation here, Paul.

    I must point out that if I had this information in advance, it definitely would have affected my purchase decision. When I read all about the dx220 I thought, "Woo hoo, this Jack of all Trades meets every one of my needs and desires!" That just isn't the case anymore.

    You guys have a really awesome device here, and it would be equally great if it supports all the things that the marketing infers that it does. I'll cross my fingers that this gets some attention in a potential firmware update.

    Well said

    Some users reported that the DX220 supports aptX HD as well. According to them it appears at developper options' codec choices and a Bluetooth headphone says "aptX HD active" when connected to DX220.

    How? I guess DX220 wasn't supporting aptx HD at first then a software update included it. This is possible because bluetooth codecs are only related to software, not hardware.

    I did it in Android mode, when I was on stock fw.
    I later updated to Lurker's FW, and has not tried.
    I tried it just to see if it works, and it does.
    As I have mentioned, the DAC on dx220 is the best one among all my gear.
    So, I will only use line out to desk amp from dx220 when I need it.

    I've been falling this "Thread" for awhile and i see iBasso still have issues with their DAP. LOL Colored Amps really? At $400 a pop,mmm nah. Expensive hobby that being said i would spend that on a new pair of headphones. I still have my DX 80 enough for my commute.
    All DAP makers have "FW" issues A&K also has them.
    I also understand this will always be "Boutique" most don't want to tinker with equipment. So Enjoy your DAP i do mine.

    So I have searched through this thread, hugo2 thread, googled it, and thoroughly looked dx220 manual. And found no answer.

    Is there actually a working way to connect dx220 to chord hugo2 to use it as a transport through USB cable? Please help. Even if it's a confirmed NO, that knowledge will bring peace to my mind :)

    @Paul - iBasso ?

    DX220 is an Android device. Learn how to use Hugo with Android smartphones and apply the same for the DX220. I guess it should work
  9. ILyaX
    Please read my messages again. I have android phones and with them hugo2 works perfectly through USB.
    I connect hugo2 to phone with otg cable (Samsung note8 in my case), then even google music would go through it. Simple as that.
    With dx220 it just won't work like that.

    Neutron has added All to DSD option. The sound is more detailed and mid are smooth. Must try.

    Hello this is my first post (joined yesterday). I recently purchased the DX220 and really love it. IMO much better than LGV30 (even with USB Audio Pro) particularly through the balanced output.

    This post concerns the DAP’s USB audio out capacity. Thee was an excellent post on this a few days ago and I agree that it’s not possible. It’s a pity that marketing of this DAP doesn’t clearly state this.

    However (and this is where it gets interesting) I have compared the LGV30 USB out with USB Audio pro into my Schiit Bifrost Multibit compared to the Spdif out from the DX 220 (and then into Audioquest Night Owl) and there is no comparison- the 220 spdif output is way superior in every way.

    I am listening now and probably the best headphone rig I have had.

    Many thanks- hope this may help others.

    Im coming this time with a quick but deeply question. What are the biggest differences between the Digital filter in terms of sound performance? I see 7 different options but I don't percept differences between them
  13. ILyaX
    Unfortunately i think USB audio is indeed impossible with DX220, but I still hope someone proves me wrong.

    Meanwhile coaxial cable is ordered.
    Through dx220 optical out hugo2 sounds magnificent

    The device you connect to Hugo doesn't affaect sound. Because Hugo produces the sound completely at its own with its DAC and amplifier.

    We have tested with the Mojo and the original Hugo and there was no issue. We do not have access to a Hugo II to test. The USB receiver in devices can change, which may be the case. We try to test as many devices as we can but there are so many on the market, that we can not check all due to access to them and because there are so many but generally if in standard they should work.
