Hi Everyone,

There is a new software version available as of yesterday (v2.12.3). Improved support for Airplay 2 has been added and in our testing it is working perfectly and is very stable and reliable with no glitches or dropouts after hours of playing. It's still in beta at this point, so to try it out you will need to go to the System menu and click on Enable Airplay V2. Also note that if you reboot or power down you will need to enable it again. Another major part of the update has added multi-room support for Spotify. Simply create a group in the AxiomAir app or user interface and the "master" will appear in the Spotify app as name-MR. Now you have the ability to play your favorite Spotify tracks on all your AxiomAir devices! Please feel free to comment on your experience with these additions in this thread, or you can always send me a PM.

Thanks,

Andrew

Thanks Andrew!

I’ve updated both my transformers and got Spotify Multiroom to work on the third attempt. I was initially playing music through the multizone on my first attempt to switch in Spotify. I ended up with the music I was playing overlayed with the Spotify music. Rebooted the transformer, recreated the group and then I got multiroom Spotify but the zones were out of sync by over a second. Lastly I switched which transformer was the group master and boom!!! Multiroom Spotify in all its glory!

Very important feature added.
Much appreciated!

We're still using ver 2.08 or 2.10 (i don't recall). Since our uses work fine with that version, i haven't bothered to update. Evidently others are using it with different features, so glad to hear it's still coming along, polishing its teeth.

Still contemplating upgrading to the Pi2 from this Pi even if all it gets is a 20% speed boost. I think that's worth it.

The V2 of the AxiomAir handles the volume differently so both the Analog and Optical inputs volume can be controlled from either the UI or the buttons on top of the speaker.

I don't think i have the Air v2. I have an original run version. No buttons on top.
Would be great to see some real pics in the product page of v1 and v2, top, sides, etc.

There is a 360 picture on the product page of the v2 that you can spin around with your mouse:

The best detail of the front and rear panels is in the manual which you can access here:
