Here at Fanthorpes HiFi we've made no secret of our love for the Chord Hugo DAC Headphone Amplifier. Leading the way in DAC technology, Rob Watts has managed to squeeze all of his DAC know how into an incredibly compact box, without taking a step down in sound quality.
The DAC section in the Hugo uses a field programmable gate array (or FPGA, for short). This is where the Hugo differs from most DAC’s. Instead of buying a DAC chip from another company, the chip in the Chord Hugo was designed in house by Chord. By designing the chip-set themselves, Chord have been able to tailor the specifications to a small, compact device. Features include: SPDIF decoding, USB timing, WTA filtering, DSD decoding and filtering, volume control, crossfeed control, noise shaping, along with converting the digital signal to analogue.
Despite the Chord Hugo DAC's small size, it still offers a wealth of connections including optical, coax and twin USB inputs, with aptX Bluetooth for wireless signals. Also there's a 6.3mm and two 3.5mm headphone outputs., There is a line-level output for using the Hugo as digital pre-amplifier. The Chord Hugo DAC also. has a 12 hour battery on full charge for when your out and about.
The Chord Hugo DAC has a smart metal chassis, with a viewing 'porthole' , positioned above the Xillinx DAC chip. Colour-coded LEDs indicate input selection, crossfeed filter settings, sample rates, and volume settings.
