Chord Electronics Hugo TT DAC and Headphone Amp
Free UK Delivery
Chord saw an astonishing level of success with the release of Hugo; their compact yet superlative-sounding DAC/headphone amplifier, which was designed for on-the-go use. Despite the key design factor being portability, the DAC chipset within the Hugo is said to rival many competitor models that are much larger in stature. We've had many customers purchase Hugos to replace the DAC in their static system, with essentially no intention to ever make use of the portability factor of the Hugo!
"The original Hugo was not optimised for home use: a minority of audiophile cables with the largest RCA and USB terminations sometimes proved difficult to accommodate, and the shorter range of the Bluetooth pairing distance could sometimes cause problems in larger homes.
"The upgrades we've made would not have been possible within the existing Hugo's smaller dimensions, but fit comfortably within the larger Hugo TT." - John Franks (Chord Electronics founder)
