I have been a very vocal critic of the poly. I think it certainly has its share of issues and still could use some extra features, specifically chromecast for us android users to have parity with apple, esepcially considering the lack of bluetooth codecs available. But, you are wrong about this one. This update does have some new features. Though like you, most of them I dont care about (not about to spend hundreds to set up roon). But in all honesty, I would say the main feature of this update is stability. Two days ago I loaded up the poly and couldn't use it for more than 3 or 4 minutes before getting issues, at home, on my home network. I listened for an hour last night switching between using hify (for spotify), dlna, and mpd. And the new firmware handled it like a champ. I am at work now, using a hotspot on my phone, something I tried a few weeks ago and had major problems with. Today, running almost perfectly (had one minor dropout, though thats likely due to more to the phone hotspot). I feel like this is the update that finally brings the poly to a place it likely should have been at launch. Its unfortunate that its now 18 or so months since release and we are just there. But as vocal as I have been, I am very happy that chord has not given up on it. I am actually excited again to use my poly. Its still not perfect, and I do hope they keep adding to it and updating it. Chromecast integration is sorely needed in my opinion, and theres still some question about gapless playback via dlna. But either way, this is a great update.
