EXPERIENCE THE BEST SOUND QUALITY
Enjoy the highest quality sound possible with the Chord Hugo TT2. It supports files ranging from DSD 64 to DSD 512 as well as a wide range of PCM frequencies including 44.1kHz, 176.4kHz and 768kHz. The powerful Xilinx Artix 7 FPGA has been custom coded to create an advanced 16FS WTA 1 filter with 98,304-taps. In comparison, most other DACs have a 256-tap filter. It also features a 10-element design which gives you unparalleled clarity.
LESS DISTORTION, LOUDER SOUND
A high-power discreet output stage and second-order noise-shaping integration have been fitted in between the DAC output and filter. This has an impact in reducing distortion. The three-stage user-selectable digital crossfeed function improves the perception of depth and turns your headphone into your very own personal speaker. You also get the four-stage user-selectable filter controls that were first introduced with the Hugo 2.
CONNECTS WITH JUST ABOUT ANY DEVICE
The Hugo TT2 can be used as a DAC, amp or pre-amplifier. It comes with two 6.5mm headphone jacks, one 3.5mm jack, a Stereo XLR as well as RCA outputs. It also has two DX BNC (expansion outputs). It has a variety of inputs to let you connect to a source device of your choice including 1 USB, 2 co-axial BNC and 2 optical inputs. You can also connect to another device using Bluetooth. It works driverless on Android, iOS, OS X and Linux. You will need to install a driver for Windows devices.
STYLISH, DURABLE & MEANT TO LAST LONG
A precision-machined aluminium chassis and steel ball-bearing buttons make this DAC/Amp stand the test of time. The glass viewing portal, glossy black acrylic signal window, and dot matrix display are pretty as well as functional. Inspite of being made for home use, the Hugo TT2 features a Li-Po battery power supply as well as six supercapacitors. These are capable of delivering huge, linear dynamic currents and a peak output of 5A, 9.3V RMS.

The History of Chord Electronics
The Chord electronics marked its beginning with the world of aviation where they believe in unyielding standards. Right from the beginning in 1989, John Franks, the owner of the company has been instrumental in developing the philosophy of the company. The very first amplifiers designed by the Chord Electronics were delivered to the BBC. The company then went on to do business with world-class studios such as the Abbey Road, Sony Music (New York) and eventually The Royal Opera House. The success of Chord electronics in the professional space lead to increasing demand for a domestic range incorporating the best of the finest professional products. All the Chord Electronics products made in Britain use proprietary technologies and offer studio-grade audio performance with all the Chord Electronics products.
Inside the Chord Studios
When Jamie spends one half of his time in the studio and the other half in the location, he needs best in class Digital to Analogue converters to keep up with his task and this is precisely why he places his trust on nothing else but Chord Electronics. Jamie has already installed the Hugo TT DAC in the Studio room as well as the listening room to feed his monitors and then employs Hugo for mixing on the go along with headphones.
The FPGA DAC Technology
The cutting-edge FPGA DAC Technology is consistent across the Chord's DAC range like the Mojo, 2Qute, Hugo, Hugo 2, and Dave were instead of using the traditional industrial DAC chip, they use the advanced field-programmable gate array.

"The Hugo TT2 is a brilliant DAC. Chord has produced yet another class leader. In performance and feature terms it’s possible to make a strong case for the TT2 to be considered the best value DAC."Read More
"Hugo TT 2 establishes a whole new level of excellency for Chord Electronics’ Its possibly one of the most difficult write-ups I have had to do, not because it was bad, quite the opposite, it is rather brilliant."Read More
Got the black version. It is slightly heavier and thicker than m scaler. The dac uses chord proprietary algorithm for filtering the quantization noise. The first impression even before any burn in, with my open back dynamic headphones is the ease of music. Music just smoothly flows, the singers have all the delicate details of voice modulation, breath and even lip movement but without any harshness whatsoever. the best part you don't want to stop midway to any song or fast forward. Bass has so much more texture than any other dac. The overall frequency response is neutral to warmish side. It takes all kind of digital inputs. With dual BNC inputs it takes upto 768khz input from chord m scaler and sound quality improved further and the combo becomes one of the best dac at any price, it is so good. It has two 6.3mm headphone out and one 3.5mm headphone out. XLR and RCA out are on the back. XLR out is very powerful and can drive efficient speakers at good listening levels. since it has digital volume control, it acts as pre and can feed power amp directly. All the controls are extremely intuitive. All in all one of the best dac available for sound quality in market at any price aided by plethora of features. This itself is already end game thing but with Hugo m scaler it breaches the barrier of even end game, it is so good. must must have for all audio enthusiast looking for ultimate in audio reproduction.
Fantastic detail and texture. Great product. Really impressed with headphonezone as well - they were able to deliver ahead of schedule and kept me informed throughout the shipping/delivery process
