Bowers & Wilkins is offering visitors to the Bristol Sound & Vision Show the chance to be among the first people in the UK to experience its Zeppelin Air wireless iPod speaker, before it goes on sale in March.
Apple's new AirPlay technology allows users to stream high-quality, lossless music wirelessly from computers running iTunes, or directly from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to any AirPlay device. In the case of the Zeppelin Air, you can use several of them to create a simple multiroom system.
Although it looks identical to the current model, the Zeppelin Air has been totally re-engineered. It's a fully active 2.1 design, which means that all five drive units are individually driven by dedicated audiophile amplifiers. The improved 4x25W + 1x50W output powers updated drive units.
Zeppelin Air also features B&W Flowport™ technology and advanced Digital Signal Processing in the form of Dynamic EQ; these combine with an upgraded port to deliver better bass performance, the company claims.
The DACs have also been upgraded, with 24bit-96KHz capability for compatibility with emerging high-quality audio formats.
