Descrierea produsului
Hugo reference-grade DAC/headphone amp - coming Jan 2014To celebrate
the 20th anniversary of our ground-breaking and game-changing DAC 64,
we will be launching something very special in the new year. Based on
the same FPGA DAC technology that has helped establish Chord Electronics
as an authority in digital audio, the company will be introducing a
reference-level portablea world first in audio history. Called
Hugo (because you can take Hugo wherever you-go), the new device
offers studio-master-tape sound quality, advanced connectivity and
uncompromising file playback capability, all from a palm-sized player.
Hugo is the worlds most advanced headphone amp/DAC, offering five
digital inputs including A2DP aptX Bluetooth, plus advanced 384kHz PCM
and DSD 128 playback for todays high-resolution DXD (Digital eXtreme
Definition) music files. The new Hugo, which can be used as both
a portable headphone amp/DAC as well as a reference-level source
component in a static system, brings the renowned digital audio
expertise of Rob Watts and Chord Electronics to serious headphone
listening, enabling consumers to experience a world of
super-high-resolution music via their headphones. It offers unsurpassed
performance and technology and is unrivaled in the marketplace, thanks
to its bespoke technology, FPGA circuitry and advanced file-playback
capability. Hugo is ready to take advantage of todays advanced
studio-master-quality (DXD) music files. It can decode sample rates
ranging from 44.1kHz to 384kHz (PCM), allowing audiophiles to experience
music in true high definition, along with the best possible
reproduction of CD-quality music. Hugo also benefits from two advanced
USB inputs: one driverless input for legacy USB devices and one
asynchronous high- definition USB port for operation up to 384kHz.
Thanks to two additional digital inputs, coaxial and optical, any
connected component with a digital output will also benefit from Hugos
advanced technology. Building on the strengths on the
(two-years-running) What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Best DAC QuteHD, the
new Hugo also has A2DP Bluetooth capability and uses a custom-made
module with the aptX codec to feed a digital signal directly into the
DAC circuitry, so even without cables, high-quality music can still be
enjoyed. In addition to 384kHz PCM files, the Hugo can also
process DSD 128 data using the latest DSD-over-PCM standard (DoP).
Whether using Mac OS or Windows OS, Chord Electronics own proprietary
driver software is provided, removing the restrictions of current
operating system audio playback. Hugo has a built-in
battery-charging circuit, with a full charge reached in approximately
two hours. Hugo takes no power over its USB input (as this is severely
limited with many partnering products) and only takes signal data,
therefore, it is fully compatible with all iPhone, iPad and Android
devices. Further features include an advanced reference-grade digital
volume control that does not lose bits. Like all Chord
Electronics products, Hugo is built to last. The casework is precision-
machined from aircraft-grade aluminium, with a bright silver
hard-anodised finish (note: spotlight image shows titanium-finish
prototype). Complementing the design is a top-mounted porthole that
gives users an intriguing insight into the internal circuitry, which
changes colour with differing incoming sample rates. Hugo is
based upon Rob Watts and Chord Electronics famous bespoke DAC
technologies and is the latest edition to Chord Electronics beautiful
high-performance product range.
