Using technology first seen in the flagship BLU MKII digital / CD transport, the Hugo M Scaler is a standalone upscale device containing the world’s most advanced digital filter. This Chord DAC, it is capable of redefining digital audio sound quality.
The Hugo M Scaler is a highly advanced standalone upscaler capable of redefining sound quality from digital audio. It uses Rob Watts’ ( our Digital Design Consultant’s ) unique filter technology, the most advanced in the world, to upscale standard 44.1 kHz digital audio up to 705.6kHz ( 16 x CD’s 44.1kHz native resolution ), ready to be passed to a suitable DAC; Hugo M Scaler extends its upscaling performance to 768 kHz ( from 96 kHz input data ) for our dual-BNC-input DACs: DAVE, Qutest and the new Hugo TT 2.
The Hugo M Scaler brings the unrivaled advantages of our ground-breaking FPGA-based WTA ( Watts Transient Alignment ) filtering technology to digitally connected audio devices, dramatically improving sound quality. Although optimized for use with selected Chord Electronics DACs ( for the maximum 768kHz upscaling / decoding benefit ), the Hugo M Scaler can be used with other DACs with suitable inputs, subject to their decoding capability.
The Hugo M Scaler’s compact form factor aligns with the TT ( Table Top ) series and has been designed to be stackable with other units in the range, including the TToby stereo power amp and the Hugo TT 2, to form a highly advanced yet space-saving system. In line with other models in the Hugo and Hugo TT series, the device features a number of illuminable fascia-mounted spherical controls, governing input selection, output sample rate and video mode for lower latency. The control spheres display data visually including input source and the incoming sample rate, using a polychromatic scale.
When partnered with either of Chord Electronics’ 768 kHz-capable dual-BNC-input DACs, the Hugo M Scaler sets an astonishing technical benchmark for digital audio performance at it price point, redefining sound quality from digital audio.
