    Missed me?... :D I haven't complained for quite some time here! So: I must say that now (after the software update I guess... I kept it under my bed for qiute some time, so I missed the update when it was released) Poly seems to run... smoothly. I never thought I would say this. Anyway, it...

    OK, guys. Tell me what the hell Roon "data service" is so I can understand how it works, because the wepbage is completely incomprehensible in terms of explaining the technology. Pure marketing bull with some tech ornaments added. I am struggling with this piece of garbage again, as it...

    Don't mind me please. I am just being sarcastic. Happens to frustrated people ;) My Poly is one of the first out there, as I preordered it. Maybe it's hardware related. Happy to provide you with any data you might need.

    Well, I guess this is a bit of overestimation. Happy I would say were maybe 2 or 3 posters. In my case accessing Tidal via Poly is far less convenient and stable than via Bubble. And strangely enough, Bubble seems to be more stable now than mconnect was previously, with mconnect being just next...

    As far as I know, there's no such possibility. Poly is a streamer, neither a DAC, nor an amp.

    Sure, you can. But this is pointless, since volume control on the phone decreases dynamic range of the music. I would invest in alps pot as a "passive preamp".

    Nothing. It just plays standard. Both from apple and android.

    And it seems I am still not alone here. Which means there's more of us who didn't sell their Polys in spite of obvious flaws. I agree, that this is a love-hate relationship. I love mojopoly for its appearance and potential capabilities. I hate it since using it is a pain in the neck. When I turn...

    Well, a very diplomatic reply indeed. And I really do think it takes a lot of patience and good will to deal with someone who refuses to cheer, so I am in fact really impressed. Point for Chord and point for you Matt. As I know there’s a group of people here not quite happy with what they got...

    Dear Matt, I can see no purpose whatsoever to contact either Chord or the dealer. The problem is quite clearly related to the way I use Poły (streaming from TIDAL mostly, and no roon on my side, no way) and most likely power management issues both in android and ios. And Chord can wash their...

    Good to know Roon does the same as other methods. Overpriced rubbish :D They belong together then I think :D

    That explains everything. Go and get one for yourself and try to use it. I wonder how ornate your curses will be, consider the language you just used. Looking forward to hearing from you then.

    That's what I wrote. mconnect DOES NOT do gapless. In spite of the option being available in the menu and whatsoever. Still, thi is the best app for Poly I have come across so far. I totally do agreee! So where's the interface Chord is providing? Except for the joke named GoFigure there's no...

    Aaaaaand... An update. mconnect kicks bubbleupnp's ass. But it DOES NOT do gapless. Pity. Especially when you listen to This Mortal Coil or Dead Can Dance. Or Meshuggah. Or Grorr. Or whatever... Still, this app sucks far less, then any other I tried. Maybe in a year or two MojoPoly will...

    Mconnect you say... Ok. Another app. I will give it s go. But back in the days, USB audio player pro was all I needed. Why can't ut be like this?...

    You need to use MPD software to play DSD (or AIF for taht matter). Not quite that convenient and easy.

    As far as I can understand Roon, it's stationary solution. So it's not useful at all when roaming around. And when at home, I usually prefer my speakers to headphones. I guess Roon fed Poly is nice for people who prefer to walk around their mansions with headphones on their heads :) Not my...

    Once again: - Using Poly in hotspot mode means no internet in the phone. Period. - Have you tried setting up Poly in "hybrid mode" in Android?... I also do not use BT for Poly since it sounds horrible. Edit: What's your battery life when tethering?..

    So basically you are confirming, that Poly was not meant to be a mobile streamer. I don't know anyone who would care their router on them. I don't give a damn about concrete walls when using Poly, since it is usually a few inches from the source, which is my spartphone. It is also further...

    Which is ridiculous, isn't it?... If I need to attach my phone to powerbank all the time, I can just plug it directly to Mojo to save power. I can use long usb host cable to avoid GSM interference as well. 2 pieces of equipment less, same SQ. Or am I wrong?...

    I confirm this. After many trials I managed to force Poly to connect to my home wifi. I needed to use "legacy" mode for 2,4 GHz network on my router. Anyways, I was accessing my old music baskup from Synology NAS and I found that 320 kbps MP3s via wifi sound far better than Tidal flacs via BT...
