In Part 1 of my review I unbox the Hugo 2 and compare the features and layout with the original Hugo.
The original Hugo took everyone by surprise. As the first portable DAC/headphone amp from the British maker, it featured some serious technology, encased in a seriously unusual case. This generated as many complements as it did criticisms, so Robb Watts and Chord worked hard to improve on the concept. The result is the Hugo 2.
This makes the Hugo 2 very likely the most technologically and sonically capable portable audio product available today.
