I'm happy to see a new firmware update. I've been having some trouble with dropouts since upgrading my Mac mini to 10.5.7, so maybe this update will help. Fingers crossed!

My AX takes forever to restart now. That's the first negative thing I noticed after applying this update.

I was having a little trouble with Airfoil after updating to 7.4.2, but it looks like they just put out an update to fix things. It should be all biscuits a gravy from here. Smile
