The only downside is you would like to connect the Chord Poly to any DAC as an high end Streamer, maybe Chord Electronics will come with a universal streamer in the future .
The Chord Hugo 2 was also released and I wonder if there will be a solution for streaming to this DAC also, maybe we will hear more at the High End 2019 in Munich.
At the www.head-fi.org forum, they cannot stop talking about it, so for the long read and opinions check out the forum

Summing up all capabilities doesn’t give a real feeling about what this player actually can do. You need to experience it yourself otherwise you would not believe it.
A short description of the Chord poly
The small and really portable sized Chord Mojo DAC/Headphone amp is arguably one of the best portable audio devices around, so why not add all streaming features people can ask for.
The Poly is a networking device which adds streaming, network and SD card playback to the Mojo.
For current Chord Mojo owners it adds incredible versatile streaming options to an already very nice portable DAC.
