Yesterday we launched the AxiomAir as a standalone component to turn your existing system into an AxiomAir and as an option in all of our integrated amps. As an added bonus for the next week we are including a free pair of M3 speakers with every purchase of one of these components.

The AxiomAir RP1 includes the Pi computer and High Res DAC in its own metal chassis with RCA outputs on the rear to plug into your existing receiver or pre-amp. Now your system will work with AirPlay and UPnP plus you can AxiomAir UI to play songs on a USB drive or on your NAS. The options for the RP1 are a rack mount front panel and/or microphone inputs for Karaoke or announcements. The Karaoke option includes our proprietary anti-feedback circuit. Now you can have a Karaoke party and not worry about how loud you turn it up; you will not experience any feedback; it is truly amazing! http://www.axiomaudio.com/axiomair-rp1

We have two series of integrated amps; the ZA-100 and ZA-1000. The ZA-100 series is 100 watts per channel and the ZA-1000 series is 250 watts per channel. These are available as a straight 2-channel integrated amplifier or have the option to expand it up to 8-channels. Each set of channels has its own volume control as well as a master volume for all of them. You can now add the AxiomAir as an option to these integrated amps.

We also have a straight pre-amp version with two to eight channels for connecting to one of our ADA series separate amplifiers.

Enter the code WIRELESS in the Gift Certificate box at checkout and you will be able to choose your free pair of M3 speakers; all the configurations are available to choose from.

Not sure if it's live yet... any issues let me know.
Please note the usb drive is my Woman's music.
I don't use my NAS for music, but I can setup one up as tutorial, I have two Synology's.

Not sure Why my Album Art isn't working today, it was.

RP1 : First Impressions => it has some serious internals!

- Works just like a AA
- No issues finding the RP1 on my network (wired), from which I then selected a WIFI SSID (entered a password), rebooted and it was fine.
- Now ships with a slightly larger, newer and white Edimax USB WiFi dongle

Had a look inside (to check it was set to 230v, which it was) and was interested to see the quality of the components including an 18V 1amp Toroidal PS feeding a daughter board with 4PCS Japan Nichicon 4700uF/35V GOLD MUSE FW Audio Electrolytic Capacitor prior to the Pi and DAC. Here are some pics of the internals:
http://jmone.org/nextcloud/index.php/s/4kzdrJ7x2SEM5Hz
http://jmone.org/nextcloud/index.php/s/E65hMimXoeQjAxr

As you can see the RP1 case is pretty empty as there are no amps in the case.

Couple of things I'm not so keen on:
- The top of the case is bolted down with (lots of) raised nuts that may or may not cause stacking issues. It is also easy to strip the thread by over tightening
- The Pi/DAC is only held to the front fascia by the Volume Control Nut. Simple things like plugging in an Ethernet Cable (or even pressing the power switch) causes the whole module to wobble. The boards are drilled to take standoff that would make it much more solid but these are not used.
- Having the Ethernet and Wifi (etc) at the front of the unit is a departure from other AV Device Layouts.

If anyone has any Q - I can have a better test on the Weekend.
Thanks
Nathan
