We have teamed up with the clever guys from Chord Electronics to bring an exciting competition with the chance to win an outstanding Hugo2 DAC/headphone amplifier. This was reviewed by Chris Martens in issue 153 of Hi‑Fi+. Deeply impressed by the Hugo2, Chris wrote, “What’s different and better about the Hugo2 vis-à-vis the original Hugo? Just about everything. Chord sought to give the Hugo2 more power, lower distortion, and reduced noise floor modulation…the Hugo2 DAC is a 10-element pulse array design whose filter offers a stonking 49,152 filter taps”
He concluded by saying, “If I sound deeply impressed by the Chord Hugo2, that’s because I am. At this moment in time I really can’t think of any other transportable headphone amp/DAC that can directly compete with the Hugo2, or that even comes close. Granted, the Hugo2 is not an inexpensive product, but it performs at such a high level as a headphone amplifier and especially as a DAC that it deserves your careful consideration and our strongest possible recommendation”.
