    Yes this is one of our biggest problems. It seems to be almost random the way that Android is implemented on different devices. It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model. It has been and still is one of the most challenging issues for us to support Android products. Still we will soldier on and keep working at it.

    P.S @masterpfa Android 5.1 does not have the ability to run Gofigure.

    Great find, learning more about BubbleUPNP by the day

    Many thanks, streaming klasu.flac as we speak, Classical in 16/44.1 and works with any Android browser I have found, just bookmarking a few, although BubbleUPNP will save these as playlist for listening at another time.

    Yes I do remember from initial installation, but had a memory lapse before submitting that post

    SO it wasn't just me :smile:

    No I wouldn't say you are missing a point, but it will depend on your own use case, music collection, preferred source and operating system.

    I personally prefer the "One Unit" aspect which Mojo/Poly within a case and cord free to my phone or DAP.
    I tend not to have my phone right next to my Poly so have not experienced or noticed any interference, with my Poly being in a different pocket or bag to my phone.
    I have a few Android devices and have about 300Gb of music in all formats on my SD card inserted in the Poly, these play flawlessly via M.A.L.P
    If I choose to play from Tidal or Qobuz there are choices such as BubbleUPNP or Mconnect to play from these services

    I prefer the 'less in the chain' aspect of the Poly whereas with my phones/DAP's I had to use either USB C to Micro USB connectors or USB micro to USB micro, that plus the possibility of damaging the USB connector on the Mojo (which over time I had to have this replaced)

    The Poly also has ROON connectivity, this I haven't tried since the update.

    You may tend to hear more from people who have had a problem or two rather than those who have not.
    If you are happy with connecting your phone as it there is nothing wrong continuing along Mojo only path.

    Depending on where you live there may be a dealer that will facilitate a trial in-store or something similar.

    Personally I haven't regretted making the move, but your experience may vary (I did have some hiccups along the way but with the help of the community and the Chord support team, got through)

    I would probably say that Beta Q has a modified Bluetooth stack. Matt you do a great job getting GoFigure to work on so many Release Candidate software but trying to get it to work on beta stuff like Q is terribly hard work, especially as the Bluetooth stack could change again prior to launch. Crazy. You all do a great job.

    Ok, makes sense... However, my idea was more, not just to connect a phone, but really permanently connect a dedicated ios/android DAP to mojo using velcro tape. I‘m actually doing this right now with my ipod touch and a DRF, was thinking about replacing the DRF with mojo. Ipod touch is really tiny, just a little larger than mojo, very thin, not much of a weight neither, would stack with mojo perfectly, supports all streaming platforms and dlna, costs just 200 usd/euro.... I guess if you need to use an sd-card, a cheap small android could do the same... I just don‘t really see the advantage of a poly, not even in a form factor, and poly adds actually more weight than an ipod touch... Ok, it‘s really more convenient being able to load both mojo/poly simultaneously with just 1 cable, but having a display with touch control at 1/3 of the price easily outweighs it in my case...

    Well, that makes the decision an easy one for me, I‘ll probably just buy a mojo and forget about poly completely...

    The Poly comes into it's own (or it did for me) when you have nearly 400GB of lossless FLAC and DSD files. If you are just using mp3 or Apple's equivalent (that can fit on 128Gb of storage), then you are probably right, Poly probably has no advantage in that scenario.

    Will Poly support the newly released 1TB sized MicroSD card?
  10. a-LeXx
    Right, but I also mentioned that you could use a cheap small android phone for this as well just as a DAP with an SD-card. Or, in my case, I have everything on my network drive and stream via dlna anyway...
  11. scook94
    You could indeed but then it comes down to from factor again. For me Poly/Mojo is a more elegant solution. Although when I fly I use my phone wired to Mojo to play locally stored Tidal content, so I guess I use both solutions.

    I'm on iOS, and struggling somewhat with the radio player. For example, I want to add TalkSport (don't judge me!), which is here - https://talksport.com/radioplayer/live/index.html?interstitial=true - except that it leads to a menu screen. So is there a technique for adding new stations to the player?

    The FAQs just say "paste the Internet Radio Station’s URL into the Station URL field", but it seems that it's not as simple as that?

    Sure, I see. My use case is only using it indoors at home. I cannot do any critical listening on a move anyway, and my pair of wireless Momentums is absolutely adequate in this scenario.

    Ok, anyway thanks to everyone who replied, I now see that I‘m not really missing on any killer feature and don‘t need to spend the cash :)

    That's the thing we all have different needs and the £500 (in the UK) is not to sniffed at all
    I was at first happy to have DAP/Mojo or Phone/Mojo but with variables like the connectors and issues I had, I decided about a year after POLY was released to go that route.
    For me UAPP and my DAP were the ideal combination choice wise as 2xSD cards on my DAP, Android Play Store etc. but the damaged micro USB on the mojo due to connectors and plugs exerting pressure persuaded me. But Mojo and A.N.Other device are more than capable
