Introducing the Chord Poly Wireless Streaming Module Mojo just got smarter – Connect. Play Go. with Poly – the Wireless Network SD Playback Module. Poly allows the award-award wining Mojo DAC/Headphone amplifier to become a high resolution wireless network music player, streamer, and SD card playback device, removing the need for a wired link. It’s based on a condensed high-level PC, with data server, DNLA streamer, Wi-Fi hub, Bluetooth module, and SD card reader/player. Poly acts as a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth hub and can access music in a number of ways including streaming over Wi-Fi, network storage devices (NAS) and collections stored on SD cards (using MPD). Bluetooth connectivity and AirPlay functionality provide real flexibility with smartphones and enable multiple Mojo/Poly combinations to be used throughout the home, providing a high-quality multi-room streaming playback solution. Poly removes the original need for a wired link between the smartphone and Mojo, and is controlled wirelessly from Android and iOS apps on your phone. When connected to Mojo, Poly conveniently slips into pockets, bags and handbags — it doesn’t need to be hand-carried or regularly checked like other players. Poly is compatible with the latest high-resolution-audio file types and supports PCM files up to 768kHz resolution and DSD64 to DSD512 (Octa-DSD). Poly’s high-quality SD card reader/player frees up smartphone memory and storage, so vast libraries no longer need be kept locally on phones. Poly integrates with advanced music players such as Roon (excluding SD access) and supported file types (at the time of writing) include: ACC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, OGG VORBIS, ALAC, WMA and MP3. The device includes a rechargeable LiPo battery giving around nine hours playback from a sub-four-hour charge using the device’s fast-charging circuit; both Mojo and Poly can be simultaneously charged.

Bowers & Wilkins CM1 S2 and Rotel RA-1570 now a new DAC and cables. Any help or suggestions appreciated!
artsnparts posted a topic in General ForumHi everyone, I would like to get your opinion on my system and how to upgrade. I currently have the following setup: Source: Macbook Pro Retina, 2012 Software: Audirvana Plus and Spotify USB-output: 1x Audioquest Jitterbug USB cable: *standard* Bluetooth: Arcam Miniblink receiver Integrated Amplifier: Rotel-RA 1570 > site: RA-1570 | Rotel Speaker cable: *standard* Speakers: Bowers & Wilkins CM1 S2 > site: Experience the B&W CM1 S2 - Bowers & Wilkins | B&W Speakers I have 2 questions: • 1: I would like to upgrade to an external DAC, and I am currently looking at Chord and Schiit. However, listening to videos online, I prefer the sound of Chord more. I am specifically looking at Chord Mojo or Hugo for main setup, and to have mobility on-the-go. Does a Chord Mojo will sound better than the DAC within my current integrated amplifier? It's a: Wolfson WM8740 • 2: Any suggestions for an upgrade in speaker cables? I have been looking at Chord and Van Den Hul so far, because I heard and read they might go well with b&w and rotel. Specifically: Chord Odyssey 2, Chord Epic Twin, Van den Hul CS122. Thanks! p.s. I might add a Curious USB Cable Mojo interlink as well.

I have too many DACs in house right now, so up for sale is my Chord 2Qute DAC. It will ship with all the original accessories and instruction card, but without the original box. It is in like new condition and functions perfectly except for a hairline scratch on the front side. The scratch is really only visible when the light hits it at a certain angle, but I have tried to capture it in the third photograph. I am planning to put it up on Audiogon, but wanted to give folks here the first shot at it. Asking $1350, which includes shipping within the CONUS and all PayPal fees.
Hello to all, this is my first post here and it is driven by my curiosity. :-) I'd like to ask owners or testers of this DAC to share their experience with its buffer. I'm not into purchase of it, but according to reviews and manufacturer description it has implemented quite unique long buffer. According to reviews it will take approx. 3 sec to start playback, which translates to cca 0,5MB size with CD format PCM audio, on its max. settings. Usual FIFO length in most designs are about 10ms. For sure FIFO functionality isn't just about its length. If underruns doesn't occur, it is calculated fine. I'm interested in one thing, how is Chords implementation effective? Did you find, that with long buffer setup, QBD sound quality is less involved by incoming data timing? Like variation between different software players and its settings. Does it help to screen different source quality? Best regards Michal
