Bowers & Wilkins launches Zeppelin Air
A premium iPod speaker system featuring Apple’s AirPlay®

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air is the ultimate AirPlay® wireless audio system with
completely updated drive units and advanced Digital Signal Processing plus fully
integrated AirPlay technology so users can easily stream music wirelessly from
iTunes, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.


Three years ago the original multi-award winning Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin™
redefined what could be expected from an iPod speaker system. Now Zeppelin
Air provides another seismic shift in audio performance, design and functionality
with completely updated drive units, up-rated amplification and the latest in
Digital Signal Processing to deliver improved sound quality. And while Zeppelin’s
iconic shape has been retained, subtly updated styling help modernise this
design classic.

The improved sonic performance is complemented by a collection of new
features, foremost among which is the inclusion of new AirPlay technology.
AirPlay also lets users create an easy to set up multi-room system with iTunes on
Mac or PC, delivering music to multiple Zeppelin Airs around the house.

The best sounding Zeppelin™ yet, Zeppelin Air features dramatic changes over
previous models. It’s a fully active 2.1 design, which means that all five units are
individually driven by dedicated audiophile amplifiers, which are specially
designed by Bowers & Wilkins. The improved 4x25W + 1x50W output powers
updated drive units, for a truly room-filling performance.

Zeppelin Air also features Bowers & Wilkins Flowport™ technology and
advanced Digital Signal Processing in the form of Dynamic EQ; these combine
with a significantly upgraded port for dramatically improved bass performance.
The DACs have also been upgraded, with 24bit-96KHz capability for compatibility
with emerging high-quality audio formats.
AirPlay requires iTunes 10.1 or later and iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.2
or later.

Zeppelin Air is available from March 2011, and costs USD $599.99.
