So my replacement got here today. Once again shipped to wrong address but I'm home sick so that worked out as it was supposed to go to my office. Fed ex as usual slow. Shipped on 29th. They left it on my doorstep and ran away. No signature. If I was a prick I could easily say I never received it...how would anyone know?

Anyways. Let it sit out of box all morning. Too cold to turn on. Then let it charge for 2 to 3 hrs since I read somewhere that it doesn't play at full volume when charging.

Good news. Usb works flawless now. No skips and pops. Web radio always worked. Seems to be a bit more volume but no major difference..then again now at 90 its too loud so maybe it is.

I was able to connect via android app to hotspot right from the start. That's how I tested my usb. Then I connected to lan.... still able to connect via android app over my home wireless. Updated firmware in a few mins. Rebooted... still had app open on phone but web radio, MY music all showed empty pages. Web browser still worked and started a song using web browser the android app would show it playing and i could contol volume but everything I clicked on showed empty pages. Rebooted air and phone and app can't connect at all. Seems like app and new firmware don't like each other.

Sound still needs eq or simple bass and treble controls as soeaker sounds too flat at low volumes.

I'll test more later

I've never been one to believe the "speaker break in" thing. Always called it placebo effect. But either my ears are adjusting to the Air or it is sounding better.

Also learned tonight, sub out does not work without ac adapter plugged in. It just hums and very low output.

I also learned that Ethernet over power line will not work with the Air. I even ordered different power line units thinking I had a bad one. They work....when the Air is running on battery, but the second I plug the Air into the wall, it causes the power line adapter to lose synch. For those not knowing what I'm talking about..

I've never had a device not work with these. Heck I got these in my garage running along saws and power equipment.

Hi newf,

I wanted to confirm the sub issue you are having...you are saying that the sub out works only WITH the power brick plugged in and not when the AxiomAir is running off the battery?
The Ethernet issue is probably interference from the power supply brick. Can you try plugging it into a different outlet than the one you have the power line adapter plugged into?


Thanks,

Andrew

What a crazy 24hrs. Storm. Core switches at work loop take corporate San down. Vm's crash. Ahhh.
Anyway ignore sub issue. I used new cables last night and new adapter and sure enough when unit was plugged into wall sub worked. Unplug power, massive hum little sub output.

But. Grabbed some more cables from work and tried dinner time today... no issues. Go figure. Bad cable I guess. Cables were new out of package last night so it's one of those rare times I got a bad new cable. Not sure running the Air on battery with a sub is really needed anyways, it's not like a I got a portable sub with a 9hr battery lying around.

As for the powerline issues. Definitely noise related and happens regardless of where I use it in house. Not a big deal since the Air seems to have a good strong wireless card. I've had it running for two weeks now during work hours and no drops at all. I keep it on for the dog just to have noise in the house while he's alone..lol. yes My dog loves the AxiomAir

yup, definitely bad cables for the sub I was using. Funny, brand new, bought from store = bad. I made my own cables (advantage of working in IT department that also does all the a/v in the department so we got every type of cable lying around) and they work perfectly.

Which reminds me, I gotta get this Axiom Air down to work, show the A/V guys. Think we can use these in small rooms, especially with the mic addons. Kids always wanting to use their phones for music in classrooms during a event. Isn't there some way you can dedicate one Axiom Air as a right speaker and the other as a left? Thought I read that somewhere. Put two in a larger room, no wires..perfect.

Just waiting on new firmware to show it off.
