I remember sometime a year or two ago there was a thread about Axiom creating some sort of portable speaker. Not sure if it was Bluetooth specific or not. If I remember correctly it was started by axiom to get a sense if there is any interest in that sort of product. I take it that the idea was dropped? Does anyone know if this is still in the works or if the idea was scrapped?

I'm currently looking for a portable boombox type speaker which is why I'm asking.

I think it was for airplay. There's a thread in the What's New section, but there haven't been any meaningful updates in quite a while.

This is still in the works. We ended up going way beyond just the standard Bluetooth type device. Somewhere in the next month or two we will be ready to start talking about where it all ended up. For now we have a few details to work out in the lab before we "shoot our mouths off" so to speak.

You have to be careful, Ian. If it's too good, you might get bought by Apple.

Looking forward to hearing more about the new product. In the meanwhile I picked up a TDK a73 boombox. It's a great little device. Not sure if it had any real competition currently.

I was in California last week and three different households I visited had Bose Bluetooth Soundlink speakers. They sound Bosey -- in other words, they do put out a surprising amount of "bass" for the box size, but the sound is very colored by the resonant enclosure.

Clearly, the market is ready for Axiom's take on this product space. smile

I have several friends who are looking for a blue-tooth or network addressable speaker. Some want it for bringing the party outside, others for taking up to the cottage.

Bring it out.

I'd buy one from axiom just to own it.
Everyone I know already has a Bluetooth speaker, don't think any of them really listen to them for clarity, just background noise.

Me, I hope they find a way to use the drivers from the QS4's. They left a good first impression on me.
