Product Details

Technical Features

The Hugo is a multitalented masterpiece that allows you to transform your listening experience with mastering-grade audio at home or on the go. It uses the bespoke FPGA DAC technology to deliver class-leading sound quality from your music collection, however it is stored. No matter your audio source, the Hugo's advanced technology will transform the sound of the music you love. It can be used both on-the-go with up to three pairs of headphones, and at home in your audio system, thanks to its line-level ouput feature. The on-the-go device offers studio-master-tape sound quality, advanced connectivity and uncompromising file playback capacity, all from a palm-sized player. Hugo brings renowned digital audio expertise to serious listening and a 10-hour battery life brings real flexibility when travelling.

Ready to take advantage of today's advanced studio-master-quality (DXD) music files, the Hugo 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 benefits from two advanced USB inputs: one driverless input for legacy USB devices and 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 Hugo's advanced technology. 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.

Other Functions

The Hugo has a sample frequency reader, and it displays the sample being played by illuminating a certain colour. It also has 3 crossfeed modes that enhance the listening experience to give a more spatial 'out of the head' stereo sound field. Using advanced filtering and delay, the normal headphone stereo image is converted to give the effect of a much bigger sound stage as though you are listening to large loudspeakers or live music. The modes are indicated by the crossfeed light under the lens.
