When can we expect Airplay 2 for the AA??

Is this still a possibility?

We are getting close now. There is a Beta version of it running on version 2.10.4 of the AxiomAir code. It is in System on the drop-down menu.

I was able to upgrade the firmware and see/select Apple Airplay 2 but didn’t get any sound from the AA. Airplay 1 seems to work fine.

The beta version currently only supports silence.

I upgraded one of my Transformers to 2.10.4

I just get a clicking noise when attempting to use AirPlay 2.

While Airplay2 is still in beta/experimental, it should work on all AA devices running 2.10.3 or later.

I'll run some more tests this week to see if I can figure out the silence issue.

In Airplay2, the new volume control system should be tied to the iTunes volume control... try adjusting the volume on iTunes and/or the AA to see if it changes anything ?

FWIW, my AA is having the same issue. Can see it as an Airplay 2 device (has the "circle" next to it), but no sound. If I login to the AA it appears to be trying to play (can see the item title and time moving), but no sound coming out.

That is indeed strange. Just as a heads up, we've pushed v2.12.1 out last week. Could you update your Air and try again ?

I’ve updated to System Version: V2.12.2 - Toasted Pinecone Released: 2019-12-19. Still same symptoms. Spotify connect works, airplay 1/original works, airplay 2 i can only hear static/EMI-type noise (as if there is network traffic to the AA is trying to play something.)

I was just wondering if AirPlay 2 is now sorted out. I am considering a N3 but absolutely want the airplay to interface with the other speakers in my house.
