You can play songs from a USB drive inserted in the front of your AxiomAir now. On the UI if you hit the browse button in the lower left, then Music Library the USB drive will show.

Right, yes I can play from a Library on a USB on the AA but not a playlist copied and on that same USB.

My question was about support to copy a library with a playlist file over to USB and have the playlist work as it should. Today the playlist file isn't supported.

Today this results in having to recreate a playlist that I already have.

If you create your Playlists as files on your USB drive they you should be able to access them from various music players but if you create the playlist using the players "add to playlist" it would only exist in that player.

As soon as the Updater software is finished we can start releasing new versions of the AA software with the new features. Obviously the v1 version cannot have the volume control of Analog and Optical from the UI but it can have all the other new features.



Any update on when this new version will be available. Could really use the Spotify option!

I can make a Beta version available here that would be loaded from a file on a USB drive. I know on the surface it seems like only a few things have changed, like the addition of Spotify Connect, but we had to make a pile of changes in the background to get to a point where we could add new features like this easily.

I'm wondering how Bluetooth will be set to working on the V1s that don't have built in BT.
I can only guess that owners will have to get a BT 'dongle' similar to the existing Wifi dongle that presently plugs into one of the USB front ports.

Would such a thing be supplied by Axiom?
Would it have to be bought?
I imagine some folks who bought into the original adverts that the Air would be BT compatible might be upset if they were told they now had to buy an add on to get this functionality.

Additionally, with BT units there is usually a button to press to get it searching for a pairing. How will this be implemented given the previous thoughts on using something like a BT dongle?

Any info/insight on this Ian?

Hi Nathan,

We are working on this now. I will let you know as soon as we have file you can load on a USB drive.

Needing Bluetooth sooner than later.
Main reason is because the front analog jack now has that pin problem like the old days of Walkmans where the connection isn't good and it cuts out to a single driver/right side only unless you get the jack in just the right spot.

So, for the kids to use the internet (via wifi) to access something like YouTube, Spotify or Tidal to play through the AxiomAir (via analog cable), they are losing functionality unless i send it back for repairs.
The rear jack is ok....for now.
