Zeppelin Air

We heard it was coming and now it’s official. The beautiful Zeppelin Air AirPlay speaker from Bowers and Wilkins has launched.


The Zeppelin Air is a premium AirPlay speaker. It retains the classic Zeppelin shape but is completely redesigned on the inside.

B&W boasts “it’s the best sounding iPod speaker ever produced” and we might have to agree considering the specs:

  • Proprietary digital signal processing (DSP)
  • Digital to analog converters (96kHz/24bit DAC)
  • Active 2.1 system featuring 2 tweeters, 2 mid-range drivers and 1 woofer individually driven by dedicated audiophile class D amplifiers.
  • 4×25 watts, 1×50 watts
  • Flowport for better bass at high volumes
  • Glass fibre filled ABS back panel for superior rigidy and support
  • Optical in for studio-quality 24bit audio
  • USB input

It’s now available for $599US (free shipping!) at the Apple Store.

Or Amazon.
