News - CES 2018 - Axiim & WiSA

It would be impossible to tell the WiSA and Axiim stories separately for CES 2018, so we are going to have to combine the two here. From a straight technology perspective, not much seems to have changed with the WiSA standard. Aside from Axiim there have only been some minor changes to the available consumer hardware. Although some major brands have recently joined the alliance so we could see additional speaker options before the end of the year. They had an interesting demo available however, where an LG TV output stereo PCM audio to a WiSA USB dongle. Removing the need for a separate AVR.

News - Axiim announces Link HD - 7.1 WiSA USB dongle for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC

It isn't very often when a new product leaves me speechless, but the Axiim Link HD did exactly that when I discovered its existance. It is fantastic in its simplicity (as a product) because it essentially turns your Windows 10 HTPC or Xbox One into a multi-channel wireless audio (via WiSA) "AVR". Based on the PR it looks like audio CODECs will be decoded on the PC/Xbox and output over PCM, but I will ask about this and whether power is supplied via the USB 2.0 connection to the PC/Xbox (awesome) or if a separate power supply is required (slightly less awesome).

UPDATE:

1) Link HD is USB powered!

2) Source device does need to handle decoding chores and provide PCM to the Link HD.

News - Axiim announces "WM Series" WiSA speakers

If the idea of a wireless AVR+speaker system from Axiim sounds interesting to you, but were waiting for something a bit grander/larger/towery than what they've had on offer so far... The wait is over, for pre-order anyway with the just announced WM Series. The spec's look interesting and I would expect performance to be a step up from the existing system. Oh, and they come paired with the long awaited Q UHD (which looks to have finally popped up as well).

Head over to the Axiim website to have a look.

News - Axiim announces 4K Q, will upgrade existing users FOR FREE!

Wow. Just wow. It's not that often where you open a product announcement email to find out that the company is upgrading existing users for free. But, that's just what Axiim just did in their latest newsletter. Fixing one of my few, and arguably most important, complaints with the Q.

I need to lay down...

News - axiim nears BETA end point

You should have read Missing Remote's first look at the axiim Q Wireless Home Theater System (if you haven't, seriously!!!). So you'll all know that it's currently in BETA, and therefore offers a pretty steep discount off the eventual SRP. If you have been pondering potentially purchasing this WiSA based home audio system, there won't be much more time to pick it up without paying full price.

News - More details about Axiim have come out

More details about Axiim's wireless home audio solution have come out ahead of CES. The more important is that the "AVR" + speakers will leverage WiSA (a good thing IMO) and they are planning a paid ($1500) BETA program that you can sign up at the website.

News - Who is axiim?

For many, a fully* wireless multi-channel home audio solution is the perfect solution. There are a few players in the market, but I've never run across axiim before. Now obviously we can't be covering every bit player that happens to put out a some home audio kit, but there's something really interesting about the set of people who are following this entrant...
