POLY 2 From CHORD ELECTRONICS GETS NEW UPDATES

Chord Electronics has announced a significant firmware update for Poly, the wireless streaming module for the Mojo DAC/headphone amp.

Poly 2 is the first major firmware update for the portable high-resolution streamer/player. The update introduces wide-ranging performance benefits, including improved Bluetooth, DLNA and Wi-Fi, plus Roon Ready Certification as well as critical updates to the configuration switch.

The new firmware will roll-out with an over-the-air update from today using what the trade calls “single-jump firmware update methodology”. Basically, this enables Poly to get the latest version even if you have skipped iterations – no need to go through all the other updates first.

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
