Chord Electronics has announced a new firmware update for Poly, the wireless streaming module for the Mojo DAC/headphone amp. The new firmware (V2.0.0), has been crowned ‘Poly 2’ in recognition of its wide-ranging improvements, which include Tidal and Qobuz support via popular third-party DLNA Apps.

Poly 2 is the first major firmware update for the portable high-resolution streamer/player. The update includes improved Bluetooth, DLNA and Wi-Fi, plus Roon Ready Certification and key updates to the configuration switch.

The new firmware will roll-out with an over-the-air update from today using single-jump firmware update methodology, which allows any previous version of firmware to be updated to the latest version. The Poly 2 firmware update follows the recent announcement of Gofigure for Android, which saw Poly’s dedicated configuration App made available for Android devices following its iOS debut.

Roon Ready

Poly is now fully Roon Ready certified. Poly users can benefit from the full backing and support of the company, who is now offering assistance for Poly owners using its software. The update also offers improved network playback performance, including Bluetooth convenience switching to/from Roon Ready mode. Poly’s DLNA capabilities have also improved to include integration of popular streaming services including Tidal and Qobuz, the addition of Internet Radio support, a DSD rendering update, plus gapless playback support (where supported by the Client App).

New Wifi Driver

A new Wi-Fi driver brings improved performance and flexibility, and is faster over 2.4GHz networks. Bluetooth has also been improved offering better co-existence with Wi-Fi. The update includes Id3tag support, MP3 indexing support and a general update to MPD. The improved configuration switch enables a number of important usage improvements, including: switching between Hotspot and Network Mode; access to Hotspot password reset; Bluetooth PIN code reset and factory reset functions, plus manual firmware update, (all by holding the Config button for 20 seconds); options are audible (spoken) with each button-press.
