The speakers your iPod has been waiting for have arrived!

B&W Zeppelin

Zeppelin is an ipod docking station that fills a room with crisp, deep, lifelike stereo sound, and delivers musical detail that you won’t believe your iPod is capable of. That’s because the two have so much in common: blissfully simple design and world-leading technologies that let you get the most out of your music.

Zeppelin is an integrated ipod docking station from Bowers & Wilkins, the makers of the speakers that much of the music on your iPod will have been made using. B&W creates technologies and systems that world-leading studios depend on and that find their way into the Zeppelin, its first iPod speakers.

This is the ipod docking station your music has been waiting for!

 

 


Overview

The award-winning B&W Zeppelin is the speaker your iPod and iPhone have been waiting for. It uses drive unit technologies and design principles refined and perfected for Bowers & Wilkins' most advanced reference-standard speakers.

Freedom to choose your sound source

Unlike most speaker docks, Zeppelin lets additional sound sources to play through Zeppelin, view videos on a screen using your iPod/iPod touch or iPhone and/or stream sound using Apple AirPort Express or any other networked audio streaming system.

Sounds as good as it looks

The Zeppelin's stunning body follows the form of its components, with two tweeters at each end, two mid-range drivers next with a subwoofer/bass driver in the center. The less physical material there is around tweeters and midranges, the better they sound. By minimizing the baffle area around the drive units, the cabinet reduces diffraction effects, making for ultra-wide sound dispersion and a much smoother response.

Superbly easy to use

Complimenting the iPod user interface, the docking port lets you grasp the iPod as if it were in your hand. It also cleverly accommodates iPod or iPhone models of differing depths with a spring-loaded docking arm that flexes to secure them without adapters or other manual adjustment.

Features

  • Analog and optical digital AUX port for connecting earlier iPod models, television, CD players, computers and more
