There's something really satisfying about getting a tape that's a little under 15 minutes in length, but with a song count that would makemost people go "how could you possibly remember that all of that? The art is definitely eye-catching, since it's orange, light blue, and yellow a little different from your standard grind release, haha! But what about the contents of the tape?
The black Hugo2 unit described below was provided by Chord as part of a demo tour, in exchange for posting an honest review when I was done with the unit.
The loaner unit has been returned to the tour organizers thank you Barra. No other consideration was given nor received. You can find it here: On first listen Mojo was awesome, but also disorientating for some reason. It took a couple weeks, but my brain adjusted to the Mojo to the point where it was very difficult to go back to my Oppo or my buddy's R2R DACs.
Although my left brain was certain those would be good decisions, my right brain was nervous as hell until the DAVE arrived, and my left brain was proven right.
How does the new Chord Hugo2 compare to its two siblings, and how best to capture and amplify that magic?
For me, the DAC is a critical component in creating the synergy between source material to DAC to analog reproduction to your brain and how it bends and adapts to what it is hearing.
It can take me weeks to really become part of the new system and understand what it evokes. What matters for me is how the notes come together to something larger, a resonance that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Once I hear that something special, I can look for words to describe it transparency, clarity, etcbut I find it very difficult to listen for those things a priori.
DACs are at that crucial pivot point between a recorded representation of the sounds, emotion, and artistry at a moment in time, and recreating those sounds, emotions, and artistry in a different time and place. In a very real sense, it becomes a proxy for the artist, and the new source of all those sounds, emotions, and artistry.
When evaluating DACs, I need to let go of the left brain, and immerse myself in the sounds, emotion, and artistry as I would at a live performance. Arguing about the purity of the water or where the coal was sourced from and the magnetic properties of the iron changes nothing.
The real debate is how they come together, and how it comes alive and becomes meaningful for you. Even with DAVE, different recordings evoke different levels of what I characterize as intoxication or euphoria from the performance.
Classic recordings from the late 50s and early 60s in particular are remarkable with DAVE. How close can you get to reproducing that emotional and artistic experience, and not just those noises? I very much appreciate the opportunity to audition the Hugo2, and see where it sits on the spectrum between the Mojo and the DAVE.
When my Blu2 arrives, I will update this review with that comparison, with the sincere hope that it will take us even farther on that journey toward experiencing emotional truths.Eventually we may even get a theme song.
