After the amazing success of the original Chord Hugo, 2017 sees the release of the Chord Hugo 2. Another step up in performance and design, Hugo 2 offers nearly double the amount of processing power that the original 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 Hugo 2 in a home hi-fi setup a little bit more easily.

Improvements have been made across the entire design of Hugo 2 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 delivers incredible resolution supplied via either the headphone outputs or RCA outputs, taking you music to another level. Also included are custom filters, meaning that you will be able to tune your music to your liking with the built-in presets.

Hugo 2 has also been designed for use with additional add-ons in the future for extra functionality.
