Crafted collaboratively between Chord Electronics and specialist Japanese case maker, Van Nuys, the handmade Hugo 2 premium leather case has been designed to perfectly protect the Hugo 2, offering both surface protection and style, with a beautiful leather grain and contrasting red stitching detail.
Designed to complement our award-winning Hugo 2 transportable DAC/headphone amplifier, the Hugo 2 protective leather case offers reliable protection from everyday knocks and bumps. The case has been styled by Chord Electronics and VanNuys Inc. and is exclusively manufactured by VanNuys Inc. in Tokyo.
Luxuriously finished, the Hugo 2 protective leather case offers a snug fit that perfectly cossets Hugo 2’s machined-aluminium casework, offering protection both at home and on the go. The design gives unrestricted access to Hugo 2’s double-ended connectivity suite and newly introduced top-mounted features, which include the device’s control spheres, iconic viewing porthole and the volume control sphere.
Chord Electronics have been producing cutting-edge digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and amplifiers, using innovative techniques and methods, since their founding in England in 1989. Founder John Franks and engineer Rob Watts have once and again turned the audio world upside down with their outstanding and unique designs.
At the heart of every Chord DAC is an FPGA chip (field-programmable gate array), which Chord packs with thousands upon thousands of lines of code, to optimize the conversion for timing and noise, and deliver and incredibly natural, musical sound. This sets Chord Electronics apart, as instead of turning to mass-produced, off-the shelf integrated circuits for the heart of their DAC's, they craft their own circuit in-house for each design. This is why no other DAC on the market sounds like a Chord DAC.
