Poly is a revolutionary music streamer, the first of its kind in the world. When partnered with Mojo, it enables music streamed from a range of wirelessly connected devices to be enjoyed in the best possible sound quality, whether at home or on the go. Poly is also a music player: its unlimited-capacity Micro SD card slot can house huge libraries and liberate storage on smart devices. Full smartphone control using everyday apps enables effortless music playback whether streaming or playing music from the Micro SD.
Poly directly connects to Mojo’s award-winning audio processing (DAC) technology dramatically improving the audio quality of streamed music. Its advanced design enables everyday devices, including Android and Apple smartphones/tablets, to become portable ‘hi-fi-quality’ digital audio players: the smartphone becomes the controller, with Poly and Mojo doing the high-level audio processing. Poly can also be used with computers and laptops, plus it can access networked audio stored on NAS drives using popular DLNA apps. Playback is via Mojo’s twin headphone outputs, plus home and in-car audio systems with auxiliary (AUX) inputs can also benefit from improved sound quality.
Poly connects to Wi-Fi networks, including mobile hotspots when on the go, and remembers multiple networks with its auto-connect functionality. It also benefits from Bluetooth 4.1, AirPlay and DLNA connectivity, offering uninterrupted music streaming when transitioning from indoors to outdoors. Poly also features its own hotspot mode, enabling a connection where devices, networks or countries do not facilitate tethering. Its rechargeable LiPo batteries offer up to nine hours of playback from a four-hour charge using the device’s fast-charging USB circuit; both Poly and Mojo can be charged simultaneously.
Poly is high-resolution audio-compatible, with support for the latest studio-quality files; PCM data up to 768kHz resolution and DSD64 to DSD256 (Quad-DSD). Supported file types include ACC, WAV, FLAC, AIFF, OGG VORBIS, ALAC, WMA and MP3.

About Chord Electronics
Chord Electronics have been producing cutting-edge digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and amplifiers, using innovative techniques and methods, since their founding in England in 1989. Founder John Franks and engineer Rob Watts have once and again turned the audio world upside down with their outstanding and unique designs.
At the heart of every Chord DAC is an FPGA chip (field-programmable gate array), which Chord packs with thousands upon thousands of lines of code, to optimize the conversion for timing and noise, and deliver and incredibly natural, musical sound. This sets Chord Electronics apart, as instead of turning to mass-produced, off-the shelf integrated circuits for the heart of their DAC’s, they craft their own circuit in-house for each design. This is why no other DAC on the market sounds like a Chord DAC.
The Chord Poly wireless streamer transforms the Chord Mojo DAC/Amp into a super versatile piece of audio kit, with the ability to stream music from mobile devices via bluetooth, or via WiFi networks, as well as play files stored in the device’s microSD card slot. No more need to eat up the memory capacity of your phone storing massive music libraries!
