Bowers & Wilkins launches Zeppelin Air in the UK
With the release of AirPlay in Apple’s latest iOS software, companies have been rushing to release speakers which will work with Apple’s new technology.
The Zeppelin Air is Bowers & Wilkins’ latest AirPlay compatible speaker system. Built almost exactly like its predecessor, the Zeppelin Air boasts improved speakers and AirPlay compatibility. The speaker system incorporates, “a fully active 2.1 design which means that all five units are individually driven by dedicated audiophile amplifiers, which are designed by Bowers & Wilkins.”
The Zeppelin also features the Bower and Wilkins Flowport technology and advanced Digital Signal Processing in the form of Dynamic EQ. The DACs have also been upgraded to 24bit-96KHz capability.
I was granted the opportunity of hearing this new speaker system at the Gadget Show Live Press Event back in April and it gave off a lovely warm sound with a good amount of bass that really brought the music being played to life.
The Zeppelin Air will be available from March 2011 and will be priced around £499.
