WIN! A fantastic Chord Hugo worth £1,400!!!

We have teamed up with those clever guys at Chord Electronics to give one lucky reader the chance to win a fabulous Chord Hugo Portable DAC/ headphone amplifier. The outstanding Hugo was reviewed by Chris Martens in issue 111 of Hi-Fi+.

Chris wrote, “All it takes is a few minutes of listening to the Hugo to recognise that it possesses that elusive ‘X’ factor, which marks the difference between very good products and truly special ones that touch on greatness. No one sonic characteristic steps to the foreground to define this product. “Hugo’s FPGA DAC supports 26k tap-length digital filters, whereas Chord says conventional DACs are limited to about 150 tap-length filters and claims even the largest commercial DAC chips offer ‘only about 250 taps’.”

This is currently the must-have high-performance portable DAC for the discerning audiophile on the go. A Hugo should set you back £1,400, but here’s how you can win one!
