Chord Hugo 2 DAC
Featuring a newly designed precision-machined aircraft- grade aluminium case, Hugo 2 is distinct from its predecessor with its sharper, lower profile design and four spherical control buttons. The spheres, which are top- mounted to allow for possible future expansion side- modules, illuminate with colour-coding information and control power, input, filtering and crossfeed functions. The top-mounted volume-control sphere has been retained and made larger for more intuitive operation.
The stylish new design and additional functionality has been introduced in anticipation of greater indoor use within both desktop and conventional home audio systems, despite Hugo 2’s obvious portability. The inclusion of a full-function remote control adds further flexibility and the practical line-level output mode of the original has also been retained.
Four digital inputs
Hugo 2’s connections and switches now feature laser- ablated function-lettering for improved ease-of-use. The device offers four digital inputs (optical, coaxial and HD USB) plus extended-range Bluetooth, with high-resolution file playback up to 768kHz and up to DSD512 (Octa DSD), via its HD USB input. Analogue outputs include 2x RCA, plus 3.5mm and 6.35mm headphone outputs.
• Advanced digital volume control
• Crossfeed filter network

• Fast-charging batteries via Micro USB giving around 7 hours operation
• 49,195K tap-length filter (near double the original the Hugo)
