I've also proposed the Axia IQ system to my boss, here. :)

One of the MAIN reasons I'd like to get this system, is because their board uses PHYSICAL BUTTON SWITCHES! (Any control surface that uses membrane type buttons is automatically OFF the list!) This is a deal breaker/maker for us, because we are live-staffed 24/7/365... so our board's buttons NEVER get a break! ;) They absolutely, positively, HAVE TO BE easily replaced WHEN they wear out.

When I investigated the Axia IQ system, I found that it meets all of the requirements that we have. The only thing I'm lacking, is an opportunity to actually sit at one and test it out. :)

Is that going well? I have a three studio client wanting to upgrade but doesn't have the full budget for an IQ system.  I've been thinking about doing just this, Air Series boards with Axia xNodes to start laying the infrastructure for the future.

I'm doing our 8 studio rebuilds here (at my day job at Cumulus) with Axia nodes for audio distribution and routing and analog consoles; Audioarts Air 5's and Air 1's. So we retain some of that audio routing flexibility of Axia but at lower cost.

I'm in love with Axia and the flexibility and support. It's a growing ecosystem that has really good support.

We use WheatNet. It's been fantastic.

I'm opposite of you, Bill. I prefer the Wheatstone look. But from a tech perspective, I also love Navigator, Glass E and all the other nuts and bolts.

I like the look of Axia, but some swear by Wheatstone aoip.  Any thoughts? I need  a simple 2 board setup with less than 8 sources at a time.
