    Yes the hope is that this will become easier and more common now Chromecast Audio has ceased and Google will make it available to more hardware manufacturers similar to the approach Apple have with Airplay.

    Still hoping for a fix for multiple access points. Meanwhile I'm back on my single point WiFi (named Cracker :ksc75smile:). I have noticed that 2.0 fw allows the poly to maintain connection MUCH better!! I'm able to move to areas in my house now that used to lose connection.

    Props to John, Matt, and the team for this significant improvement!!

    I finally bought again a new Mojo Poly, I've updated to 2.0 I guess (successfully arrived to 1.0.4.1 before that) as I saw those 3 Colors flashing, then saw the yellow one, stopped, then yellow again, then blue. I unplugged the charger and shut down the device. I turned it on again, same for Gofigure in my mobile and this app asked me to connect to Polymojo (The name I gave him), so I selected it, started to download and suddenly told me that the Bluetooth PIN "does not match that of the device you selected". I did 0000 when I first configured it, so I don't understand why it doesn't recognise those numbers. If someone can help please.

    I have finally dissociate my mobile and Poly, then re-associate and opened Gofigure agai, then I was able to have access to the app. I've checked Poly version in the general setting and now it show me 0.0.0. The strange thing is that I can listen to music with the Mojo Poly through mconnect (the poly is flashing purple though). Also it says wi-fi - not connected (I'm not in hotspot mode), I was able to connect before that.

    Delete current bluetooth profile. Retry. Else try different device (old version of android worked for me).

    I'm finding the same. Finally I can take Poly to bed with me...

    Just following up. My experience with 2.0 is mixed....sweet and sour. The improvements are in wifi performance, no further dropouts when moving about the house, an impression of better sound. The dissapointments are in the Android app which has connectivity issues, first in bluetooth for opening app controls, now revised and improved with a play store update, now the android app has almost no funtionality in selecting and configuring wifi networks. Those networks that were previously configured now show as "unknown". In general the android app is beta at best. The ios app performs well but functionality with glider has gone backwards with sound quality which seems constrained...certainly nowhere as good as streaming roon. Babysteps with continued software issues on an otherwise amazing product in terms of SQ. my final score for 2.0 is 6/10....up from 4/10

    I finally got the 2.0 update a few hours later. One more thing now, apps like Mconnect doesn't see the Poly when I'm in hotspot mode, should I need to enter manually something? Sound is killer by the way, far better that the one I got last year that I had to return due to hardware problems, I'm wondering now if the DAC part was working correctly? (I can now hear a difference between a headphone linked to my MacBook Pro and linked to Mojo Poly...!).

    I was hoping that V2.0 would have been offered as a beta on Android, if it was I missed that boat.

    I've been wondering about GoFigure and BT for a while....if a near future Chord streamer device (for either Mojo or H2 or even a future device), were to utilize BT5, would the data throughput be fast enough to display songs (and of course, albums, artists and genres) and therefore turn GoFigure into a full on DAP.

    Right now, though the Poly uses BT 4.1, the throughput for text data seems very slow (or perhaps is it an issue with the speed of the Poly server, or CPU or RAM limitation on the Poly hw). Playlists show up rather slowly. (Though I LOVE that they show up in alphabetical order now).

    Sorry, it may seem like I'm complaining, or it may seem like I'm requesting a particular feature. Really, I'm just curious about the limitations of Poly, and wondering a little bit if the 2Go will be somewhat different from a GoFigure interconnectivity/capability perspective, and to some extent, even a feature perspective.

    Though, if a 2Go emerges with no real changes hardware changes except a slightly improved performance over Poly, I'd still probably get it.

    Maybe you will find out in two weeks. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/hug...official-thread.885042/page-439#post-14909744

    Why would we think 2Go would have improved performance, especially if it leverages the same hardware/software that Chord has spent all this time developing and fine tuning? It may (should) have more inputs, like Ethernet, and ideally even some outputs for use with other DACs besides Hugo2 (TT2 and non-Chord), but I expect it would sound the same (excellent).

    This photo of a prototype posted at the time of CES 2018 shows an ethernet socket, so I hope that the production version has retained it.

    Ahhhh, of course. This is an audiopile forum, so of course many would equate the word "performance" in relation strictly to sound. I should have been more clear.

    I'm really talking about performance of the hardware around areas "outside" of audio sound quality.

    The circuit board, I imagine, will retain the same 10-layer design that Chord used in the Poly, but will have more surface area, so by performance, I mean maybe a better general CPU, perhaps a bit more RAM to handle more (textual) data simultaneously, a larger ROM to perhaps have additional MPD features....things that might have an effect on MPD performance. Perhaps larger BT or WiFi chipsets that may have improved connectivity/throughput, or being more responsive to GoFigure, or perhaps better TCP/IP handling, or maybe WiFi 5gHz capability (Poly is 2.4gHz only), etc.

    These are all things that are not "problems" necessarily with the Poly, but would be improvements to the overall "experience" of using GoFigure with a new Chord streamer. Given that opening GoFigure means first waiting for the app to find the Poly, and then waiting for the QuickPlay playlists to load, and of course, having no access to songs/albums/artist/genre, just makes me wonder what a larger streamer like the 2Go photos indicate, plus the longer time Chord has had to work on the 2Go before release, might mean in terms of performance improvements.

    I would not contemplate, or expect, any "performance improvement" in sound through upgraded streamer related components. Sound reproduction is not the Poly's or 2Go's job.

    Nice, just have a little budget set aside since the tax hit, while bad, was anticipated since last year, so I have a bit of reserve next month. Crossing fingers.

    Ethernet would be awesome. I have a NAS in the office, and a Stereo at the bar, with PLC/ethernet running between the two locations, so being to run a 2Go/H2 combo at the bar and into my stereo would be very nice. Had been thinking about getting either a Mytel Brooklyn Bridge to handle the bar area, but placing a 2go/h2 there instead would be a great option.
