Developed from the multi-award-winning transportable Hugo 2, the Chord Hugo TT2 is bigger, better and more advanced in every way. Chord Hugo TT 2 sets a new benchmark for tabletop DACs, eclipsed only by the flagship DAVE

The Chord Hugo TT2 is the latest version of the table top DAC from Chord Electronics. It is quite a step up from the original version with the Rob Watt's custom designed FPGA providing 5 times the processing power of its predecessor. Why is this a good thing? The increased processing power of the latest chipset - nearly 100,000 taps allows the DAC to use more powerful interpolation filters, in other words, it makes a better job or recreating the original analogue signal.

The Chord Hugo TT2 also features a dual BNC input that allows it to receive a 768Khz PCM signal from example the Chord M-scaler. The DAC can also process DSD files to 512.

The Chord Hugo TT2 headphone amplifier has a much more powerful output satge and will drive even the most demanding of headphones. This has been enabled by the replacement of the battery by 6 powerful super capacitors.

The Chord Hugo TT2 has balanced XLR analogue outputs and a pair on single ended RCA analogue outputs to connect to your amplifier or preamplifier. There are also a pair of BNC digital outs.

In terms of input we have USB, 2 x optical toslink, 2 BNC digital inputs and APT X bluetooth.
