B&W Zeppelin Air iPod Speaker with Apple AirPlay
With the Zeppelin Air, renowned speaker manufacturer Bowers and Wilkins have taken the sleek and curvaceous award-winning Zeppelin iPod speaker system, added the latest cutting-edge audio technology and a subtly improved stunning design, to create something very special.
Providing another seismic shift in audio performance, the Zeppelin Air has re-written the rules for iPod speaker docks. Maintaining its distinctive shape, the Zeppelin Air has been completely redesigned and re-mastered. Compared to its predecessor, the Zeppelin Air will deliver you improved dynamics, punchier bass and a more open, lifelike presentation with highly detailed, room-filling sound.
Apple’s AirPlay technology will allow you to wirelessly stream music directly from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or even your Laptop or PC, directly to your Zeppelin Air. Imagine being able to select and listen to any track from your entire music collection, instantly, and in pristine quality. It also uses Apple Lossless for a faultless music transfer.
If you have more than one Zeppelin Air, you can either choose an individual device to play your music on, or select every Zeppelin Air in your house, filling your home with pristine sound in party mode. It’s not just your music collection that the Zeppelin Air will wow you with. It’ll stream music from many games you play, providing you with a more immersive gaming experience as well as web streaming sites such as Last FM, Spotify and YouTube, which will all benefit from the clearer, superior sound provision the Zeppelin Air delivers.
Zeppelin Air’s bass output can be adjusted via your iPod or iPhone so you can optimize the sound to suit your surroundings. You can vary the bass level according to the amount of space around the speaker, giving you refined sounds, even in confined spaces. Its fully active 2.1 design means that all five units are individually driven by audiophile class D amplifiers, and advanced Digital Signal Processing has dramatically improved the bass performance compared to the Zeppelin. The Digital to Analogue Converters have also been upgraded, with new 24bit/96KHz capabilities.
A 3.5mm analogue mini jack and an optical digital input (TOSlink) are also featured, so almost any digital music device or portable music player can benefit from the Zeppelin Air’s warmly detailed sound (linking cables not included).
Please note: iPod sold separately.
