Hugo M Scaler

Using technology first seen in the 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.

  • "If the goal is to get digital music to be as lifelike as possible – this is it. In fact, I would even put the 4X (blue) mode against any D/A converter out there. When you’re looking to find that balance in your system – the Hugo M Scaler serves as the perfect digital foundation to build upon. Not only as an upscaler, but as a future-proof digital cornerstone." Audio Bacon

    "The Chord Hugo M Scaler is possibly one of the most intriguing journeys I have had in a long time when writing a review. I will also say its possibly one of the most difficult write-ups I have had to do also. Not because it was bad, quite the opposite, it is rather brilliant. It is more about how to describe that brilliance in easily understood words to the headphone and portable audio crowds because the changes are like nothing I have experienced before in this hobby."
