Wireless music with AirPlay

Listening how you like it
AirPlay on A7 works seamlessly with your favourite music apps, like Last.fm, Pandora and Mixcloud. However you like to get music, via lossless audio, MP3 or a cloud service, you can tune in on A7.
Full range sound, deep bass
The very best wireless music system around, A7 features a 6" Kevlar-reinforced subwoofer for rich, deep bass and a bank of four high-quality stereo drivers, specially engieered by Bowers & Wilkins. These deliver excellent dispersion, for a natural and widely spread sound. Combined with five dedicated audiophile Class D amplifiers, A7 delivers truly impressive audio quality.
Wireless audio is upsampled through A7's audiophile-quality 96kHz/24bit Digital-to-Analogue Convertor (DAC), reducing noise and increasing dynamic range, for a more detailed, natural sound from the high-quality drive units.
Nautilus tapering tubes
Not all sound is good sound. A7 features tube-loaded tweeters first seen on our flagship Nautilus™ speaker. Rear reflections in the cabinet are absorbed by the design, to ensure pure high frequencies.
Getting a new A7 up and running in your home couldn't be easier. With the free Bowers & Wilkins AirPlay Setup App, it’s a breeze to set up and manage. The app will walk you through the simple steps to connect your A7 to Wi-Fi, and choose and manage your settings, all wirelessly. Because we’re sure you'd rather be listening to great music than messing about with cables or flicking through manuals.
AirPlay works with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 4.3.3 or later, Mac with OS X Mountain Lion, or Mac and PC with iTunes 10.2.2 or later. A7 features both 802.11G wi-fi and an ethernet port for direct, cable control and the free Bowers & Wilkins AirPlay app makes sure wireless connection is easy.
