    Chord Electronics ☆ Poly ☆ (wireless & microSD module for Mojo) ☆★►USEFUL INFO on 1st PAGE!!◄★☆

    For my primary use cases (office and travel), it’s not an inconvenience, and having the capacity to carry my entire library is a plus. More importantly, all my files play natively. For the gym, I don’t bother with Mojo. Phone and Bluetooth headphones are enough. We’ll see how it is on a plane.

    Poly is out of the drawer and back in play, and I suspect it may be back for the long run. There was a post about this in the first 100 pages--maybe the first 50--but it took me six months to try it. Teaming the Poly/Mojo with a WD My Passport Wireless Pro has solved every problem I ever had...

    Happy camper now. Listening to Dvorak Slavonic Dances in DSD (Glider is now showing my phone and the Poly’s card as a single library, and hotspot has freed me from the tyranny of AirPlay). Well done, Chord. All is forgiven. Now I need a bigger microSD card.

    Did you actually not know that MQA is a hot-button issue across a big part of the audio enthusiast landscape? Sorry you had a bad experience here. Better luck next time.

    Took some doing to get there, but I am an almost completely happy camper. Finally got firmware updated to .10. I get immediate power-up. If I remember to turn on mobile hot spot on my iPhone 8 before powering on Mojo/Poly, it connects within seconds. Connect iPad to iPhone via mobile hot spot...

    That is, I suppose, theoretically possible ... but how would I know if that’s what has happened?

    Well, this is downright bizarre. After hours of struggling, I was able to set up a Wi-Fi connection—or so I thought. I put in the SSID and password for my home Wi-Fi network, and got nothing but the blinking blue “trying to connect” light. After an hour or so of digging around, I found a Chord...

    Poly config is a nightmare for me. On both iPhone and iPad. Bluetooth: it is recognized, but won’t pair. The name that comes up in the device list is not “Poly,” but rather “VFxxxxxx.” The popup to enter “0000” never pops up. I get the “Pairing unsuccessful” popup on the phone. Have tried a...

    Every country is defferent, but in the UK when you are a non-EU resident you can ask the retailer to give you a special receipt that doubles as a request for a refund of the VAT that is baked into the price. You can either fill it out and mail it in when you get home or take care of it at the...

    Oh, and the other thing that the Liquid Carbon doesn't ship with, besides a power cord, is FEET!

    Cavalli Audio Liquid Carbon Now Available

    All the computers in my office are Macs (I'm a sole proprietor, and the IT department knows what it takes to keep the users happy), and my printer is a HP OfficeJet Pro, so no IEC cables anywhere.

    Cavalli Audio Liquid Carbon Now Available

    Mine showed up today at my office in Costa Mesa, CA.   I HATE Arcam for providing a two-prong power cord with the Solo Mini; I won't be able to start listening until tomorrow, because I forgot to bring a power cord from home.   Concero/Carbon stack fits nicely under my 27" Thunderbolt...

    4th Annual San Diego Head-Fi Meet: Saturday, November 7th, 2015

    Well, drat: Email from Cavalli says my Liquid Carbon is supposed to ship the week of 09 November, just in time to miss the meet. Keeping fingers crossed that it will show up ahead of schedule.   If there is any interest in hearing it, I can bring an AK Jr. Some might find a comparo between Jr...

    I'm definitely in. Not sure what I will bring, other than my Geek Out v2+ Infinity. If my Liquid Carbon shows up by then, I will definitely bring it, along with a suitable DAC.

    PONO - Neil Youngs portable hi-res music player

    Question for those who have updated FW to 1.0.5.   I'm having an issue with playback of large .dsf files unexpectedly stopping.   I loaded the first movement of the SFS recording of Mahler Symphony No. 1 on my player.  It's an 18 minute long piece; the .dsf file is approximately 860 MB.  ...
