Chord Electronics Hugo

by Chris Pavey


As part of my studio upgrades I have made various changes in my work flow and the equipment I use.  As you would expect from any mastering studio my converters are the centre point, and its always been the hardest choice to make. 

Step in the Chord Hugo! This revolutionary DAC has the most outstanding audio performance of anything I have heard since working in this industry. Oh by the way... its portable. I use an array of different hardware in my mastering chain, but I never thought a portable device would have a place in it. 

Well thats all changed, the audio is outstanding, the design is exceptional and the genius behind the coding and build of this device is of the highest standard. A standard I have come to expect from Chord.

This reference grade DAC has found its place in my studio and is holding its own against anything I can through at it.
