The Myth, The Legend, The Zeppelin!

Since 1965 Bowers & Wilkins has been a brand associated with the most elite levels of performance. Its like being a part of that really exclusive club, or membership that tells everyone that is on the inside "We will be just fine!". Their reputation for Audiophile grade products just continues to gain more and more creditability. The Zeppelin Air meets every expectation that the extremely eager consumers could have set for them. The bar has been raised yet again.

Engineering Excellence

There is nothing about the new Zeppelin Air or "Zep Air" that occurred by accident, or because it was easier that way. Right down to the very shape, design, and acoustics. The elegant elongated shape allowed B&W to install the drive units as far apart from each other as possible. By doing this, The ZeppelinAir easily disperses its sound waves throughout the entire room delivering a wide open sound stage, with incredible imagery and spacious sound separation. Top that off with custom designed mid range drivers and premium built tweeters, the speaker dock offers vivid, concert like sound reproduction. The back of this gem is equipped with dual air ports or "Flowports" with small dimples (round indentations) that were engineered to have the same effect on the air that a golf ball has. These small indentations or "dimples" smooth the air flow and reduce turbulence practically eliminating all unwanted noise. This brilliant engineering design allows the ZepAir to maximize its frequency reproduction delivering tight, perfectly timed levels of bass. Bowers & Wilkins would not stop at the perfection of their world renown speakers, they understood that they need to perfect the process before these speakers get their signal. The ZepAir is equipped with a 24bit Audiophile Grade DAC (Digital-to-Analogue Converter). User's will never have to sacrifice quality for convenience as Bowers & Wilkins world leading technologies & DAC's are some of the best in the business. The Zeppelin Air features Wireless AirPlay digital music & media streaming, USB, and a 30-Pin Apple iPod, and iPhone Dock which allows users to simultaneously charge and play. The Universal 3.5mm Auxiliary (Mini Jack) input enables Portable MP3/MP4 Players, CD/AM/FM Radios, Blackberry/Android Smarphones, Tablets/Laptops, and just about any other device with a Headphone jack to be connected and enjoyed. This truly is a ray of sunshine on a rainy day. The Zeppelin Air is here, its ready, and its incredible.
