After the amazing sucess of the original Chord Hugo, 2017 sees the release of the Chord Hugo 2. Another step up in performance and design the Hugo 2 offers nearly double the amount of processing power that the orignal Hugo offered. A new sleek design has been incorporated to bring it up to date alongside a much needed remote control for those wishing to use the Hugo in a home HiFi setup a little more easily.

Improvements have been made across the entire design of the Hugo with improved power on the headphone output and lower noise and less distortion.

If you want to get the best of your smartphone or any digital source then you really will not go wrong with Hugo 2. It's incredible resolution supplied via either the headphone outputs or RCA outputs will take you music to another level. Included custom filters mean that you will be able to tune your music to your liking with the built in presets. The Hugo 2 has also been designed for use with additional addons in the future for extra functionality.
