Come one people.. just another 6k more to go so that we can crack that $150,000 mark and get Ian happy. ( 106k and he'll be ecstatic ).

I'm with Murph, though. I am still using a Squeezebox and definitely looking for some other method for streaming. So a unit with the Pi and DAC is very interesting.


I'm currently using a Pi with a DAC very similar to the picture Ian posted. The Pi runs a Linux distribution called Squeezeplug, which includes a Squeezebox and Airport emulators. The DAC is also connected via 12S, and it's all in a nice perspex case. It's from a small Scottish company called IqAudio.

Having said that, I'm totally blown away by the AxiomAir! I'll see if I can scrape together enough to back it.

So i see that one of the options for later purchase is a battery. Does this mean for the $495 price it does not include a battery and must be plugged in or is the upgrade for an extra or extended life battery?

Been following this for awhile but I've been away for a month. Couple of Q before I consider dropping for a multi pack smile

1) I'd want to control this all from JRiver's Media Center, so:
- what protocol can I use to "push" to the speakers (DLNA / Airplay / Other)?
- is there any quality issue using DLNA (etc) to push media over the speakers pulling from the server
- can I config them (through the Axiom Air App) to appear as one or a group of speakers?
- if configured as a group how does multi room sync work, and what protocol/system do you use between to keep them in sync?

2) Networking Qs
- Wifi Hotspot : one issue if using the WiFi hotspot on Axiom Air is I presume both the speaker and the device then loses access to the Main House network so your media must be on either the device or the Axiom USB port.... or ???
- Will the Axiom Air auto pick Ethernet over Wifi without reconfiguration (eg if my Axiom Air mostly lives on Ethernet but I unplug it to do portable will it then grab my WiFi that I've previously configured then return to Ethernet when plugged back in)?

Thanks
Nathan

Great questions. So does this mean I couldn't stream spotify on my wifi and be connected to my axiom air at the same time?

That question is not as simple to answer. The AA can make it's own network if there is not any other around to connect to.

Where the fun part comes in is if you want to stream music from your phone that is already streaming from another source. This might be a functional limitation of the phone and it's ability to have both a cell connection to the internet and connect to an external wifi at the same time. I don't believe that my LG phone can do that. However, I can turn my cell phone into a wifi hot spot, and then there would be a wifi network that the AA could connect to rather than make it's own adhoc one. But then you sort of give up the multiple people.

Ian, let's cut to the chase: Will there be blue LEDs?
