It’s very convenient that the MojoPoly always remembers my away from home, hybrid mode, WiFi connection. However, once I return home to my home WiFi network I see the Poly connection on my iPhone & it’s unlocked. Should I be concerned about “users” trying to piggyback? I mean, can they connect to my Poly WiFi?

Not likely if you set a very random password. It could be cracked by a brute force attack prob (tries massive lists of known common passwords). If they were able to connect, there is very little they could then do though I suppose, only look at your sd card contents.

Thanks for the reply. Kinda’ thought so, but wanted to reconfirm publicly. Also, I just noticed today that the Poly WiFi connection is only visible & active while I’m charging the device. When I disconnect it from the charger, the PolyConnect signal display disappears from my iPhone menu. The flashing green & blue LED’s on the device deactivate as well. It’d be nice if it wouldn’t do all that, but it’s the price you pay to play, I guess.

Again. It’s funny, most anything else, I’d immediately give up on & not look back. However, so far, the Poly reminds me of the love & tolerance I have for RC trucks & drones. That said, I’ve got another on the way in exchange for the (supposedly) defective (RFI) one I have. Will report back after I receive it.

You didn't mention what phones are being driven. When I use my UERR, zero RFI. With my Zeus XR, lots of interference. I got an iFi IE Match which got rid of the interference on the Zeus.
Shure 846.

The specs I found indicate 9 ohms and 114dB. So, yes, I believe you would see great benefit from something like the iFi Match. IIRC, 846 users found noticeable hiss with just the Mojo (sans Poly) when the Mojo first came out. You may want to search that thread for more info.

Thanks for the response. However my Mojo doesn’t produce any RFI with any of my headphones (846’s & M2’s). The Poly produces RFI while in AirPlay mode (only). I’m getting an exchange (new Poly) today. So, I’ll report back after I let it charge up & have a listen.

I was referring to amplifier hiss, not RFI, in regards to the Mojo. Apologies for not being more clear in my earlier post.

Ah, I see. Thanks again. However my Mojo doesn’t hiss at all. I don’t have any noise issues. My mojo is black far as any type noise goes.

if I get RFI with Airplay/iPhone, a restart of the iPhone usually helps
Wow. Thanks. Will definitely try that, if necessary. Speaking of which, the replacement Poly is here. I’m charging it up. Will report back tonight or tomorrow.

Just modded my Chord Mojo a little. ( Everything shown and done at your own risk! )

Fidelizer Audio offers an upgrade mod for Mojo and among other things they change is this upgrade:
-Modify battery module to use direct connection with high purity copper wiring for full sound dynamics

Using that idea, I managed to do it myself. Original battery is a double stacked battery packs with contacts combined to double voltage. A direct connection was soldered from a battery contacts and then straight into a circuit board. A clear areas for NEG and POS are located on the Board already ( Thanks CHORD ).
Wires used are NEOTECH Solid Core UP-OCC Pure Silver 26AWG. Solder is Mundorf Best Supreme Gold Solder Silver Gold Tin.

My own subjective experiences after this mod:
My Mojo-Poly just comes alive like never before. Fuller Dynamics and more Air, as if something was unveiled further like never before. Music has more energy and sparkle and faster speed to it.

I mean the battery provides the juice to power an entire experience. An improved signal path is always an advantage imho.
Thanks for viewing!

Interesting. Didn’t see the mod on their website. Do they offer it in house, parts & labour or nah?
I did the mod myself. Just used their idea. It is listed on the link below. Scroll all the way down for Chord products.
https://www.fidelizer-audio.com/portable-products/

Benefits are audible right away. As if something got "unclogged" all of the sudden. Highs and Lows are more visceral. Mojo sounded a lot more dramatic on its own too when in PC USB mode.

Got a bit a of a Poly "scare" today for the first time in a while.
I am an iOS user and have experienced very smooth sailing with the Poly since the last major firmware update.

My usual go-to on mobile hotspot mode Rigelian was refusing to play nice today as Poly kept on dropping off my network. Rigelian is normally pretty bulletproof but not today.
Luckily, I also have MConnect Pro on my phone, which somehow worked and ensured that me swearing at Poly was pretty short-lived :D

GoFigure what caused this, hopefully a one-off..

Any iOS beta updates involved?
