Meet the new Chord Hugo M Scaler
This all new product uses technology from Chord's flagship Blu MKII digital/CD transport, the Hugo M Scaler is a standalone upscaling device containing the world’s most advanced digital filter. When used with a dual-BNC-input Chord Electronics DAC, it is capable of redefining digital audio sound quality.
The Hugo M Scaler uses Chord's unique filter technology, the most advanced in the world, to upscale standard 44.1kHz digital audio up to 705.6kHz (16x CD’s 44.1kHz native resolution), ready to be passed to a suitable DAC such as Chord's DAVE, Qutest and Hugo TT 2. The Hugo M Scaler brings the unrivalled advantages of Chord's ground-breaking FPGA-based WTA filtering technology to digitally connected audio devices, dramatically improving sound quality. Although optimized for use with selected Chord Electronics DACs the Hugo M Scaler can be used with other DACs with suitable inputs, subject to their decoding capability.
