Consumer review (

Chord Hugo game changing portable Hi-Fi


I have been looking for a desktop amp/dac for a while now as I have not had one for the last few years (last desktop amp was a Naim headline 2 with NPSC power supply which was okay but nothing magical about them so tired of it after a couple of years)...

Connectivity options, Unique original design, volume button design, can be used in normal Hi-Fi set up also, Hours worth of non fatigue listening

Ideally could do with bigger coax and 3.5 jack ports on connection side and does not reset volume after each use
