Nope, they didn't mention it. But my guess is they are focusing on the new 4k box, and probably intend to squash any existing bugs there.

Does anyone know about a wisa-adapter that can be used to turn conventional speakers into wisa-compliant ones?

I'm curious about this as well or maybe a different solution to my needs. I have 5.1.2 that's hardwired to speaker terminals on my AVR. Trying to just have the back surrounds be wireless.

Any updates on a 4K receiver/box?

It kinda seems like this product is dead. No updates about revised box. No software updates to fix the various issues with the first version. No one is talking about it (no social media posts by the company or the employees). No stock of the original version.
  • Distorted and muted sound all the time in netflix - if you watch for extended lengths (or don't frequently power cycle the box). Also, same issue w/ sound after rewinding/fastforwarding in plex... could all be related.
  • Wifi doesn't like Ubiquiti products - their wifi module locks up and won't connect to any AP's after it gets stuck in this state.

I'm sure there are others, but those are my 2 major issues. I hope I'm wrong, but this wouldn't be the first time for these guys.

I fear the same (dead product) but only because there is no feedback from Mikhino or any info in general.


With the free upgrade I wouldn't blame them for not offering the original version until 4k goes live (they still do offer separate speakers).

They do seem dead. However, the speakers are still available under accessories section... I can live with the bugs, but the prospect of not getting the 4K box, makes me sick. Dropping 2K$ on a product that is basically incompatible with any recent TV is an unacceptable loss. I'm not sure what legal recourse we would have. Also, wonder how well the Klipsch box would work with these speakers. Mikinho's profile suggests hes moved on to another job/project...

Hi all,

I'm Ryan from Axiim. I am happy to report that we are in fact not dead! I apologize for the lack of communication in the recent months, we are a very small group and have been heads down working on the 4K UHD Q. Obviously, we're quite a bit behind schedule. We discovered a pretty severe hardware issue a few months ago and it took quite some time to isolate the root cause. I'm happy to report that the issue has been resolved, and we are (finally!!!) in the process of validating the production hardware! Rest assured that we still intend to fulfill our promise of a free upgrade as soon as the new system is ready.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to deliver the ultimate wireless home theater system! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send us an email.

Thanks,
Ryan

As I said, we're in the final stages of validating the production hardware, and we hope to start rolling out the UHD version of Q soon!

Thanks,

I am happy to report that we are now going through regulatory testing with the new 4K hardware. We'll let you know as soon as it's available for purchase!

Thanks,

We are still inching towards the finish line! Regulatory testing is complete and the first wave of production systems is on order. We are hoping to make an official announcement in the coming weeks!

Thanks,
Ryan

Hello Ryan,
Any hope for Atmos powered Wisa speakers?

Would love to use your products with overhead and rear speakers.

I don't want to answer for them since they probably know more but I don't think the WiSA standard (as it stands today) supports that many channels, I think 7.1 is the current max.

Hi Kelvin,

The 4K UHD Axiim Q will not support Dolby Atmos, but it is something we would like to add in future products.

The current WiSA standard only supports 8 channels of audio. Traditionally those 8 channels would be configured as a 7.1 setup, however a 5.1.2 Atmos configuration would also be possible.

Thanks,
Ryan

Hello Ryan,
Thank you for your reply.

Would be great, especially if you had a setting in your Axiim Q where you could change the location of your speakers.
This speaker dedicated to this function sort of thing

I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that WiSA, and the Axiim, supports 7.2 (or maybe even 7.4) .

Why would you want to change the location of the speaker after placement?

Actually, I have not a permanent system yet but here's what I want to do.

AVR in front next to the projector screen.
L C R channels hooked to the AVR in front of me.
Wisa Rear speakers (x2) and Wisa Atmos overhead speakers (x2) with the Axiim Q in front connected to the AVR.

The setting is actually to let the Axiim Q know that it will be outputting sound only for those dedicated channels.

Using the Axiim system as it is does not allow me to use their speaker the way I want it coz there's only 1 HDMI input (not RCA inputs available)

Ah, I see. That's a highly specialized use case.

Are there other AVRs that will act strictly as an AMP? It's not something that I've researched.

Actually, unless I'm mistaken, it's what most of us would love to do

Speakers that are close to the AVR can use the amp in the AVR and those that are far won't need long speaker cables since Wisa server would send information wirelessly to the passive Wisa speakers.

If using in a living room like me, running speaker cables in the wall to the overhead speakers and to the rear speakers can be such hassle and costly. I think a lot of people are looking for wireless rear speakers in this case. I understand an in-wall plug is required.

Using a single AVR to enable that use case isn't fringe. You can buy HTIB systems that do it now. Involving a second AVR in the mix is unusual, although I understand why you want to do it, just don't think it's going to appeal to a mainstream retail audience.

Already have a Yamaha RX-1050 - do I need another AVR for my purpose?
The Yamaha has 2 x HDMI output... Most AVR should have the same. So 1 output for my projector and one for the Axiim Q

Do you think it won't work?

AVR HDMI output is usually just video. Is there a setting to pass-through HDMI as-is?

I think what you really want is some sort of AMP that accepts decoded audio from the pre-out on your Yamaha and pushes that wirelessly (via WiSA or some other wireless tech) to the surround/height speakers. This would allow you to use the room correction in the AVR to compensate for the varied latency b/w speakers.

You wouldn't want two devices decoding parts of the same audio bit stream, it would create all sorts of sync issues.

Might have decoding issues, you're right. Guess I'll have to try whenever Atmos Wisa system comes alive

PS: the HDMI output on the AVR is for video/audio

Interesting! Is it as-is from the input?
