Update on Omnia S1?
« on: 25 May 2018, 09:09 pm »
Is there any new information, expected announcement date, or availability date for the Omnia S1 unit?

It seems to be delayed into oblivion. Perhaps it has been cancelled?  I've been delaying the purchase of a Bluesound Node 2 to see what the Omnia has to offer.  I have come to the point where I'm done waiting, but thought I'd ask, just in case there is some information coming very shortly. 

If anyone can provide any sort of update, it would be helpful. Thanks.

I just tested another revision of the app, it is quite stable and fast now, we still have to test it on the S1 server so this process will take a few more weeks. 

Here's what we have to do for the testing:
Omnia S1 hardware - one of the few media server with 2.4G and 5G WiFi support.
On this hardware, we have two firmware with Linux and Android OS.  The Omnia S1 can be switched from media server mode into Android model to run Spotify, Tidal, .... and all streaming services native on the hardware for best performance.
On the software side, we have to test DLNA server, DLNA Renderer/receiver on Linux and Android OS, and also on smartphone.  The controller/player app runs on the smartphone.
Rounds and rounds of testing and bug fixes. 

I think we can ship some samples around end of June or early July, with full production shipment in August (or July if we don't have more bugs).  There are still administrative type of software work to do, such as system configuration and firmware/software update.
