Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Black Wireless Speaker Dock, Model ZEPPELINAIR
Nothing looks like it. Nothing sounds like it. Critics and listeners agree: Zeppelin Air is the complete speaker dock, making your music sound richer and more lifelike than you’ve ever heard it before. And with Apple’s AirPlay® wireless streaming technology built in, you can play it however and wherever you like.
Wireless music with AirPlay
Think of a tune. With Zeppelin Air, you can play it – instantly. Zeppelin Air comes with Apple’s AirPlay technology, letting you stream music wirelessly from your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch ®, Mac or PC. And all in blistering high-quality lossless audio. It’s time to set your music free.
Every song, wirelessly
Zeppelin Air lets you play your entire music collection wirelessly. From your Mac or PC, or streamed directly from your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. It works seamlessly with all your favourite music apps, like Spotify and Last.fm. Music is everywhere: how you play it is up to you.
AirPlay setup App
With the free Bowers & Wilkins Control App, it’s a breeze to set up and manage Zeppelin Air. The app will walk you through the simple steps to connect to your 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.
Zeppelin Air marks a seismic shift in audio quality for speaker docks. Forget tinny treble and feeble bass: play a track through Zeppelin Air, and you'll feel as though you're right at the heart of the performance. From the lightest brush of a cymbal to the mightiest bass line—it's all there, just as the artist and sound engineer intended you to hear it.
Zeppelin Air's elongated shape isn't jsut for show. Placing the drive units as far apart as possible aids sound dispersion, helping to create a more open, natural sound. Add in custom-designed mid-range drive units and high-quality tweeters, and the result is a remarkably spacious, roomfilling performance.
On the back of Zeppelin Air is a Flowport, a feature shared with our top-range hi-fi speakers. The dimples on a Flowport act like the surface of a golf ball, smoothing airflow and reducing turbulence. A smooth flow of air reduces unwanted noise, and helps to ensure bass is tight and well-timed.
Digital tracks are simple sequences of code. To turn this code into a signal that speakers can recognise, you need digital-to-analogue converters (DACs for short). Poor quality DACs can lose detail in the conversion process – so it’s good to know that Zeppelin Air’s audiophile quality 24bit DACs are some of the best in the business. Meaning the sound you hear is that much closer to the sound of the original performance.
