  • The Long Story

    High-Quality Audio, Always

    At the heart of the Hugo M Scalar is the Xilinx XC7A200T FPGA (field programmable gate array) chip which provides 740 DSP cores. The FPGA-based WTA (Watts Transient Alignment) filtering technology is very effective in improving the sound quality. This upscaler can upgrade standard audio at 44.1kHz up to 705.6kHz i.e. 16 times that of a CD’s 44.1kHz native resolution.

    Connect Easily

    While optimised to be used with select Chord Electronics DACs, the Hugo M Scalar can work with other DACs as well. You can connect to the Qutest, Dave or Hugo TT2 with the dual BNC sockets. Other outputs include single BNC at 352.8/384kHz and optical S/PDIF at 176.4/192kHz. You can also connect to a variety of digital sources with the two BNC sockets, two Toslink sockets and a Type-B USB input.

    Compact & Easy to Use

    The Hugo M Scalar has been made to align with the rest of the TT (Table Top) series, so it’s really easy to stack it up. It features illuminable fascia-mounted spherical controls where the data (on input source and incoming sample rate) is visually displayed on a polychromatic scale. It also has a governing input selection, output sample rate and video mode for lower latency.

Chord Hugo m scaler the vinyl killer

Chord's philosophy of using custom long length digital filters programmed into FPGAs continues in the form of Hugo m scaler. The product uses same tech as in Blu mk2 cd transport but in much more compact and cheaper package. The first impression is that the device feels much smaller actually than in images on web. It is extremely well built and be tucked anywhere in your system except in very closed spaces as it can be a bit warm(not hot) during operation. It requires about 70 to 80 hours but in imho. Through its dual bnc coaxial out it outputs upto 768khz upscaled output, filtering out all noise while preserving the timing of transients courtesy 1M tap WTA filter. The output can be fed to dual bnc compatible chord dacs like qutest, Hugo 2, tt2 and Dave. The output of a single bnc (half of 768khz) can be fed to any other compatible dac of even other brands. Though the full benefit of m scaler will not be available out of single bnc. Now coming to sound. The sound via Hugo 2 is changed into a much more precise soundstage, focussed vocals , punchy textured bass with a clear sense reverb. Vocals become scarily realistic . One can feel the singer in the room. The extra details are not at the cost of increased brightness and overall impression is like a original analog master vinyl and even better in many areas like higher s/n, better frequency extension and no click or pops. Imho this device is vinyl killer with a compatible dac. Must must have for an audiophile willing to spend for ultimate transparency and realism.
