MacBook Pro to Chord Hugo.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I am new here and have been searching the threads but cannot seem to get (what seems to be) the simplest answer to this:

I have my new MacBook Pro, my new (very happy:) Chord Hugo, Audivarna Plus, music in Audivarna from HD Tracks and a USB to Micro USB. I am plugging the micro USB into the HD usb port in the Hugo. This all I have to do right?

 

Trouble is, when I press play, the sound still comes from the speakers in my Mac... Yes, I am a dunce.. but its the simplest things that frustrate sometimes!! I have my Hugo running into the CD stages of my amp and want to hear the music through my speakers. I imagine there is something I need to change in the Mac?

 

Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thank you in advance.

This should help you:

 

Wavelength Audio, USB DACS, Setup information for Macintosh Computers

 

Essentially you have to tell your new Mac that it's sending the output to the dac.


If guns kill people, do pencils misspell words?

Hi and welcome,

 

Select the Hugo as output device in Audirvana Plus preferences. There's a downloadable manual for Audirvana Plus at its website.

Welcome to our forum.

 

Surely you've tried this, but, with everything powered up, open System Preferences on the Mac and under "Sound", click "Output", and your DAC (USB) should appear on the list below Internal Speakers. If not, cross your fingers, and restart the computer.

 

Edit: ...and what goldsdad said.

 

If this fails to rectify the problem, you have a connectivity problem.

Hi all.

Thanks for the advice. Much appreciated:) Very simple in the end. Everything working well and sound via my B & W 804d's & Musical Fidelity 6500i is very nice.

 

Rob.
