You can't compare a Chord Hugo to anything Oppo makes
1: The Chord uses a proprietary Fully Programmable Gate Array running an advanced Watts time array filtering program that took over 10 years to design, program and refine
The Oppos uses an off the Shelf very good Sabre chip.
An FPGA design means that the main processing power, decoding and filtering abilities are fully up-gradable vs the Oppo which is not.
Chord is made in the UK out of billet alluminium
the Oppos is made in China.
The Chord is also portable and provides hours of battery powered fun to drive headphones when on the go
the Oppo is not portable.
So you really do get what you pay for, hence the Oppo is a cheaper product than the Chord.
Lastely the Oppos sounds very good, the Chord is an entirely different league of performance, as the level of the dac is commensurate with technology and performance of Chords big dacs which are $8,500.00 the Oppo is just another good sounding Sabre machine.
Lastly when the Oppo player this was based on was cocmpared to the similarly price Cambridge Audio universal player most reviewers thought the Cambridge was better sounding
Lets face facts Oppo makes nice, high value, well performing products for the dollar I have yet to see an Oppo product that really compares to any of the major players, products.
If you value price over performance get an Oppo if you want long term value and state of the art performance although for more money buy a Chord hugo, which is what I did.
