Today we released wireless versions of some of our bookshelf and tower models. We went with some really powerful built-in amps in the M80HP and M100 models. We have added pre-amp functions to the AxiomAir UI that allow you to switch from WiFi, TV, and Analog inputs. We also introduced wireless versions of our EP500, EP600, and EP800 so you can run 2.1 systems all wirelessly. Andrew and I did a video on it here:

Congrats! A dedicated subnet for the local speakers and sub was a great idea!

The video mentions cd quality sound. Is that a limitation?

Dangit! Stop releasing stuff, how am I supposed to get ahead in my budget?!?
This is interesting for me for an office setup. Can they be fed by output from a PC via 1/8" stereo jack? The transmitter unit I mean of course.

Hi cb919,

Yes, this will work no problem. You would just select the Analog Input on the UI.

I think CB might need an adapter that splits the left and right channels from his mini plug on his PC into a left and right RCA on the base station. Not a big deal.

Nicely done!

If I was just starting out, this would be the way to go for me; however, I'm far too ensconced into the old stuff to change now...

Mmmmm - Nice, few Q:
1) Does it have a Headphone Out
2) When is the Spotify Connect coming out?
3) Any plans for Chromecast support (or even Google Smart Speaker)
3) Is 5ghz support possible

From what I see, there is no sub out jack on the base station. You'd have to purchase an Axiom wireless sub if you are not using a pre/pro and want to use an existing sub.

That's both good and bad. The bad is you're paying at least $Can 4K for a 2.1 system with the M5HP and EP500. The good, besides the awesome 'nad-mass of the integrated amps, is that you have a reason to upgrade a potentially crappy sub.
