    More # = more betterer. Right.

    Might as well optimize the 26,000 coefficients more than add another 23,152.

    It's going to be released early 2017...I know most don't like the Hugo, but there are some fans of the Mojo here.

    I'm sure you guys are aware of this and the new Poly add on for the Mojo. Here is a link to the overpriced Poly.

    Definitely disappointed in the pricing of the Poly. I hope it controls volume and eq through the phone, that's the only way I'd consider adding this, especially at that price, which is ridiculous.

    God damn... Chord fan boys are out in full force...

    First, when people complained about the Mojo making any sort of noise, everything was down played, it's minor, it's not an issue, it's only when you use your phone, not many experienced it and other bullshit. Only when you use your phone was one of my favorites. Especially since this was designed for use with a phone. I hate fan boys.

    Now that the polly is out, immediately its going to improve the sound, get rid off all the annoying clicks, pops, and other weird noises (that were minimilized prior to a solution to the problem). I fucking hate fan boys.

    Then the people that are complaining about people complaining about the absurd price, how can they treat chord this way, Rob Watts deserves better... Jesus fucking christ. Fucking fan boys are so annoying!!! I HATE FAN BOYS!!

    /rant

    This thing is overpriced. End of story. I hate fan boys!!

    P.S. I really hate fan boys!!

    P.P.S I really really hate fan boys.

    TL;DR

    I HATE FAN BOYS!!

    £499. That's fucking ridiculous. The Mojo is $529 on Amazon. The "accessory" will cost more than the product it's for.

    Well They are planning to add accessories to hugo 2 as well...purposefully not allowing poly to be compatible with the hugo or hugo 2 Lol....probably might mean the accessory for hugo 2 might be priced even higher LOL

    One thing that I'm actually interested in is if the increase in taps....if it actually makes a difference in sq. It did for the DAVE, so I guess we can all have a listen at canjam nyc. I'm just curious.

    I have no idea, but taps seems to be the important, or one of the more important things with Chord. So, I'd guess it would sound better. I've never heard the Hugo, so I have no basis for comparison.

    It takes some sort of brilliance to come up with the most hideous designs known to man so consistently.

    I object to that, being someone with hearing impairment. ;)

    Probably people who listen to the brand and not the gear or music. "It's Chord, they sell mega-buck stuff, it's gon b gud!"
