Everything is moving forward in high gear now for the new AxiomAir (last minute name change). If you go to www.axiom-air.com you will find the beginnings of the final look and feel of the interface. Clicking on the opening Logo takes you to the main page. We would love to know your thoughts and questions on how it is coming along.

The site graphics reminds me very much of XBMC from 10 years ago.

Working on a mobile site for on the go listening? Site works for phones but is a little unwieldy.
So far the site you have is easy to use and self explanatory - good stuff. Wonder if there is a way to merge the NAS/USB split that you have in the GUI somewhere in a setup menu so the end user doesn't have to remember where their music is - so if the device can contact the NAS and has USB attached it refers to a merged list of music on the 2 sources.

One of the great features of AxiomAir is that you do not need to put all your music in our library to make it work. You could actually set up a Playlist or add to the Coming Up Next list songs from both your NAS and the USB drive. If someone arrived and wanted to play a song resident on their phone they could just join your network and play it. They do not need to load it into your library first.

So you pull from file folders rather than indexing the metadata in the music files?

Technical question: Will the AxiomAir be controllable by software (though REST API, for example)? Or are the calls like Vol+, Vol- straight HTTP or AJAX calls?

The reason is that to be 100% usable with my home servers, I need to control the "receiver/amplifier" portion of the AxiomAir (the content and play can be done using UPnP).

In an all-Apple environment, what would AxiomAir add to existing apps, e.g. Music, Remote, Podcasts? Direct volume control is one thing I can see, but not sure what other advantages AxiomAir would offer.

A merged library display is an interesting idea, and certainly something we can look at. Currently our Favourites and Playlist databases work in a merged manner: you can pull tracks from a variety of sources and they will all appear together.
Thanks for the idea!
