In Stock

2go is a high-performance streamer / server that transforms the Hugo 2 into a full-featured Wi-Fi- and Ethernet-enabled device.

In addition to its music streaming abilities, because 2go has up to 4 TB of SD card music storage it also is functions as a high-capacity digital music server (using MPD). When being powered from its battery alone the Hugo/2go delivers the ultimate in purist audio.

2go contains highly advanced miniaturized electronic engineering and is the most technically and sonically advanced compact music streamer available today.

Wireless convenience (2.4GHz Wi-Fi and A2DP Bluetooth) combine with the stability and performance of wired (Gigabit) Ethernet connectivity, the latter offering set-up-free plug and play operation. 2go also benefits from comprehensive audio interfacing and offers Tidal, Qobuz and Internet radio playback with Spotify (and others) earmarked for the future. 2go is also Roon Ready, offers gapless audio and DoP/Bit Perfect support, as well as being fully DLNA-compliant (server/renderer) and AirPlay-ready.

A key feature of 2go is its auto-switching input function: every audio interface is always on, therefore switching between inputs is as easy as hitting ‘play’ on the chosen control point app; 2go convenience-switches between all its inputs automatically, giving a seamless user experience when playing music from different sources or even streaming services.

Compatibility

In order for 2go to perform as a fully functional streamer, a connection with Hugo 2 (DAC/Preamp/Headphone amp) or 2yu is required.

Wireless Connectivity

Long-range 2.4GHz WiFi allows 2go to connect to an existing 2.4GHz WiFi network. Hotspot mode (activated within the Gofigure app), allows 2go to broadcast its own WiFi network with SSID and password in the eventuality that the device cannot connect to a static network.

2go can also be connected via Bluetooth 4.1 A2Dp.

F.A.Q.

What equipment is the 2GO compatible with?
The Chord 2GO is designed to work with the Hugo 2 DAC to create a high-fidelity music streaming device. It is also compatible with the 2YU to provide a digital output media bridge solution for adding a Roon EndPoint to any DAC.

How does the 2Go work with the Hugo 2?
The 2GO connects to the Hugo 2 DAC to enable the device to stream music wirelessly from your source to your connected headphones. The 2Go is form-factored to fit flush with your Hugo 2 DAC and connects securely to the device. Like the Hugo, the 2GO is battery powered and is controlled wireless via Chord’s Go Figure App.

Who is the 2GO for?
The Chord 2GO is great for those looking for portable high-fidelity solutions. If you’re on the road or even wanting to use your Hugo 2 in a grab-and-go environment, then the 2GO will allow the user to connect to their music library wherever they are.

What if I already have a Poly/Mojo?
The Chord 2GO and Hugo 2 pairing are for audiophiles who want more meat, body and depth to their music. Of course, the Mojo and Poly are smaller, but they can’t compete with the powerhouse and definition that the Hugo 2 and 2GO can provide.

Should I get the 2GO or the 2YU?
It depends on what you want to do. Both are streamers, but the 2GO is specifically designed to pair with the Hugo 2 DAC for streaming music solutions to your headphones. The 2YU on the other hand is designed to pair with the 2GO, effectively creating a standalone streamer, and utilizing the digital outs of the 2YU to your output. Note that the 2YU cannot be connected directly to the Hugo 2.

What are the benefits of using the 2GO?
The Chord 2GO is designed to transform one of the best DACs on the market, the Chord Hugo 2, into a fully portable music streaming setup. The Hugo 2 + 2GO pairing is going to deliver much more performance and fidelity than Chord’s previous portable pairing, the Chord Mojo + Poly.
