Axiom Audio Announces New Wireless Speaker and Subwoofer Models
(January 26, 2018) Axiom Audio is expanding its presence in the high-end wireless space by announcing five new wireless speakers. The company’s new wireless offerings are based on best-selling speaker models in its current lineup, which is great news for fans of Axiom’s refined sound.
At this time, Axiom has released details and special pre-order pricing for four speaker models: M3 Wireless Bookshelf ($909 pre-order/$1,298 regular pricing), M5HP Wireless Bookshelf ($1,490 po/ $2,128 rp), M80 Wireless Floorstanding ($2,443 po/$3,490 rp), and M100 Wireless Floorstanding ($3,773 po/ $5,390 rp). Each model features built-in driver-matched amplification and an app/web user interface for streaming audio and pre-amp controls. The interface allows for owners to group together two or more pairs of Axiom wireless speakers, including the company’s highly versatile and portable Hi-Fi AxiomAir N3 (reviewed here).
Axiom’s new wireless speakers ship with a separate wireless transmitter (TRP-1) that can be connected to peripherals through an analog or optical input. The unit can also connect wirelessly over Wi-Fi for streaming via Airplay or UPnP (Android/Windows). The TRP-1 provides volume control and allows users to switch between inputs.
Outside the N3, which can be ordered with an onboard battery, Axiom’s other speaker offerings require access to a standard power outlet. And unlike other wireless speakers that rely on a user’s in-home Wi-Fi network, Axiom’s speakers create their own 2.4Gz network, keeping your home network free for other Wi-Fi traffic.
Axiom has also announced three new wireless subwoofer models (EP500, EP600, and EP800) priced from $1,470, each of which carries a built-in receiver module that communicates with the TRP-1 transmitter (sending low frequencies to the subs).
Axiom says the speakers will officially be launched in March 2018. Pre-order pricing will be honored until that time. For more information, visit Axiom on the web.
