Easier question: 
Who makes the world's best D to A converters BETTER? 


We say easy to answer because Chord's Hugo M Scaler  ($4795) is a remarkable upgrade to ANY high performance DAC. The M Scaler is an incredibly advanced upscaling device, a major upgrade which can be used with Chord's own DAC's or with any other DAC (such as the T+A unit in the previous article).
Capable of accepting pretty much any digital data stream regardless of resolution or sampling rate, the M Scaler incorporates enormous processing power and cutting edge digital filtration; outputting standard definition digital inputs at 352.8 or 384kHz via a single BNC output, or at 176.4 or 192kHz via an Optical output. And if you are using one of Chord's DACs you can increase this output resolution to as much as 768kHz using the M Scaler's dual BNC outputs. 

And this is where the most logical companion for the M Scaler, Chord's own Hugo TT2 ($5495), comes in. A bigger, better, 2nd generation table top version of the famous Hugo2 portable DAC/Amp ($2495), and on its own one of the finest DAC and Headphone Amps available at any price, in combination with the M Scaler this is monumental digital performance.

“The Hugo TT2/M Scaler pair extracts shocking amounts of beneficial musical information from standard and hi-res files alike. Sonic benefits include reduced congestion, purer timbres, sharpened focus and resolution, greater pitch definition, more incisive transients, heightened levels of dynamic expression, and larger and more realistic soundstage.”
—Chris Martens, The Absolute Sound, 2019 Golden Ear Award  

Both the Hugo M Scaler and Hugo TT2 are now available for in-home audition through our Cable Company Library, either alone or in combination. Of course we can provide all the digital cables and other support you need for thorough evaluation at home in your own system.
