The Chord Hugo 2 is a portable DAC/Amp that will not only power your headphones but also your home audio systems. Its line-level output and full-function remote control adds real flexibility in full-size and desktop systems.

The device offers four digital inputs plus and has Bluetooth capability, with high-resolution file playback up to 768kHz and up to DSD512 (Octa DSD), via its HD USB input. Analogue outputs include 2x RCA, 3.5mm, and 6.35mm headphone outputs.

A four-function switch filter allows you to select the frequency giving additional flexibility and user control. For headphone-listening, Hugo 2 retains the popular digital crossfeed function of the original and offers three operation modes. The system duplicates the effect of listening to speakers and is based on advanced binaural audio research.

Hugo 2 features four spherical control buttons with specific colors to control power, input, filtering, and the crossfeed. The battery playing time is around seven hours with indicators to show charging and battery-charge level status.
