Bowers & Wilkins unveils the first premium wireless iPod speaker

Three years ago the original multi-award winning Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin revolutionised the iPod speaker market. Now, continuing to lead the way in sound and design excellence, Bowers & Wilkins bring you the Zeppelin Air, the ultimate wireless speaker system, and the first premium iPod dock to feature new Apple AirPlay wireless streaming technology.

An iPod speaker for the digital age, AirPlay allows music to be streamed wirelessly from a computer to Zeppelin Air, while everything from track selection to volume levels is controlled from either your PC or Mac, or via an iPhone?, iPad? or iPod Touch. Discover the freedom in bypassing the computer entirely, by streaming your favourite songs directly from your device – all without the need to use the Zeppelin Air’s docking arm.

Carrying over 45 years of superior Bowers & Wilkins sound engineering technology, the Zeppelin Air is the best sounding Zeppelin yet. With dramatically improved sonic performance from updated drive units, five corresponding dedicated audiophile amplifiers specially designed by Bowers & Wilkins, and featuring radically improved bass, the Zeppelin Air redefines wireless sound at home, providing a truly room-filling experience.

And while Zeppelin’s iconic shape has been retained, the Zeppelin Air offers the ultimate in Bowers & Wilkins design and functionality, with subtly updated styling such as the new high-quality black back-plate and updated iPod docking arm supporting a digital connection – providing you with the definitive digital sound.
