Hi Gents

I need your help

I have a B&W formation Duo, would I improve audio quality if I get Chord Hugo 2 and feed it into the B&W formation audio? so i can listen to the audio from Hugo 2. Will the formation audio do a ADC to my Hugo 2 output and then the speaker will do a DAC. Of course that means no improvements I guess

Thanks

If I’ve understood the design correctly, the only input is wireless (or Ethernet) unless you buy Formation Audio for £599. Then you could feed the Hugo output in just like a CD player. But whether you’re still limited by the ceiling 24/96 of the speakers I’m not sure, though I suspect you are.
Probably best left as a stand alone setup, but if your sights are Hugo high then consider traditional active speakers like ATC.
