The queue being there makes sense. The User Interface is being broadcast from your AxiomAir and the songs you are playing are resident in your AxiomAir.

Sounds like you have the latest code.

Ian, can you please update us with a rough ETA on AptX? Also, please confirm if AptX HD will be available on the AA. Thanks in advance!

We are working on a final problem of getting all the volume controls to play nicely together. Hopefully it will be ready soon. It will be AptX ready.

This turned into a much bigger project then we originally anticipated but it is moving forward.

What is the need for Bluetooth connectivity given the Air sets up its own wireless network?

The answer is "not much"; but there are times with certain devices where it may be the only way to cast what you want to play to the AxiomAir. We would not recommend it as the normal way to use your AxiomAir as Bluetooth has audio compression. At first we thought it would be a reasonably simple add-on as it is built into the Pi but the Bluetooth on the Pi has problems. We have been investigating other options that could also give us aptX, and hope to have one that works well soon. First though we want to finish Spotify Connect and the memorizing of past networks for auto connection when in range.

Anyone unit that wants to stream sound from the internet, does not have files loaded up locally for streaming, or does not have wifi onboard but does have bluetooth (e.g. straight up mp3 players, older ipods).
This comes up more often than you would think.

Interesting article on the bluetooth compression.
