Chord Hugo TT 2 DAC/Amp


Request A Price Match

The Chord Hugo TT 2 is a DAC, preamplifier & headphone amplifier with 5x the processing power of the original Hugo TT and 2x that of the Hugo 2 portable DAC/Amp. It delivers radically improved technical specifications and measurements across the board and exhibits improved sonic benefits over its predecessor with 768kHz PCM and DSD 512 playback.

The Hugo TT 2 comes with Xilinx Artix 7 FPGA, custom-coded by Chord Electronics’ Rob Watts, with 86x 208MHz cores running in parallel to create an advanced 16FS WTA 1 filter with 98,304-taps. It has a 10-element design, which works in harmony with the radically upgraded FPGA and code to deliver unrivaled audio. A brand new high-power discreet output stage coupled with second-order noise-shaping integrated between the DAC output and filter leads to massively reduced distortion. Hugo TT 2 is equipped with a Li-Po battery power supply and includes six super capacitors capable of delivering huge, linear dynamic currents with peak output of 5A, 9.3V RMS.

You can select among four-stage filter controls or three-stage digital crossfeed functions for headphone users who want to improve the perception of depth, similar to that of speakers. Finally, it can be upgraded at any time with the addition of M Scaler, Chord's 1M-tap digital upscaling device.
