Replacement Wi-Fi 6 range extender

What is the best WiFi Tri-Band Mesh Extender to use with my Nighthawk X6S Tri-Band WiFi Router since the EX8000 range extender is no longer available? Is the EAX80 a compatible Mesh Extender?

 

Thank you,

Herb

EX7700 or EAX30 will do as well. 

 

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the WiFi Extender products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with WiFi Extender (EA and EAX Series) products:

the EX8000 is still available. Its just harder to find. there's a lot of devices that go in/out of stock. 
The EX7500/EX7700 aren't quite as fast but operate off the similar triband operation as well.
