    Out of all the ones I've tried HiFi Cast+ has been the favourite.

    Matt,
    I am not certain that compatibility with my router is the problem. There are two reasons for this.
    1. I returned a Poly before this one. My first Poly was not recognised by Gofigure. However, I was occasionally able to connect manually using the pin. The connection would never last very long, hence the return.
    2. Virgin and BT routers in close proximity show up on the settings menus of my phone and tablet. No routers show uo on Gofigure.

    Hey Roon users is anyone else still having Roon problems? From day one Poly has been 100% solid on Roon, never any issues but now no joy. I have tried rerunning the wizard, sever power cycles, & even reluctantly updated Roon from 1.5 to 1.6. I'll be posting this over on the Roon sited too, but I wanted to know if anyone here has gotten past this hiccup, and or what they did to do so.

    Don't you hate it when you go to reply to a post and find that it has disappeared without trace!

    FYI, for anyone else having this issue, Matt was able to help me out. Chord sent the v2.0 update directly to my Poly and it worked like a charm. I'm now up and running. Finally listening to this thing and it sounds great.

    I'm a newbie when it comes to DLNA/UPnP related things. I have an Android and iPhone. I installed BubbleUPnP on my Android and it works great. Trying to look for a similar option on iOS, which runs TIDAL and Google Music like BubbleUPnP does. Any suggestion(s)?

    Just figured out that on my iPhone I don't need a DLNA/UPnP app specifically for streaming on the go (with Poly on hotspot mode), AirPlay can do it (sorry, new to Apple and the AirPlay capability). And I had no idea that it can play my offline TIDAL and Google Music files (that are stored locally on the phone) via AirPlay too. This whole time I figured offline files were not possible whatsoever. This is freakin awesome.

    No not at all, I think it is down to personal preferences. Initially, until an update to BubbleUPNP and Poly FW 2.0, I was having too many problems with playback using this app and as a result got used to and preferred M.A.L.P

    Personally not much to choose between the 2 but M.A.L.P has remained my No.1 choice but BubbleUPNP is by no means a poor 2nd, just my choice.

    I’ve seen a few reviews where people say the SQ of playback from a microSD card is better than just using Mojo via USB, which is of course the main way people used the Mojo.

    E.g.
    https://majorhifi.com/chord-poly-wireless-streaming-module-review/
    “Just when I thought the sound couldn’t get any better… it got way better”
    Or: https://audiobacon.net/2018/02/02/chord-poly-review-rediscover-mojo/amp/
    “Using BubbleUPnP to play off Poly’s local storage was by far, the best sound I’ve ever heard from the Mojo.”

    Is the feeling from people here that the SQ with microSD playback is different to typical Mojo via USB use? If so, could anyone offer descriptions of how the sound differs, is it greater transparency, soundstage, space between instruments etc?

    Nothing wrong with Airplay as a way to play offline files... just keep in mind that you’re limited to standard resolution @ 44.1kHz, the limit of Airplay on iOS.

    I haven't used USB since getting Poly, but I can hear no difference between SD card and NAS drive. Using Sennheiser HD600.

    I was trying to get some advice on better displaying artwork in MALP. Having set up embedded artwork in all my files, the Musicbrainz stuff doesn't cut the mustard.

    Connected to my phone I use my phones Hotspot to connect to M.A.L.P and I have no such problems. I use my Mojo/Poly primarily for my commute to work including travelling on the London Underground. My playback is flawless, no disconnections or problems whatsoever, I have not tried this with BubbleUPNP yet, as previous experiences until the update have not been favourable.

    I have no hotspot capability on my devices. Perhaps that makes the difference.
