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.

There has been massive progress in integrating Airplay 2 capability into the AxiomAir. A new update is available today that will bring your system up to v2.12.3. Airplay 2 is still in beta and needs to be activated from the System menu, but it is working reliably for me with no dropouts after hours of playing. For any of you that are interested, we'd love to have you try it out and give us feedback. We're hoping to push this as the "default" Airplay version on the next update. Please note that as this is still in beta, you will need to re-activate Airplay 2 if you reboot or power off your system.

Thanks!

Andrew

I have no problems with my Airplay2 so far here at home.
