Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air
Zeppelin Air is the ultimate AirPlay wireless speaker system; the best sounding Zeppelin® yet, it features dramatic changes over previous models. Plus it is the first premium iPod speaker to feature the new Apple AirPlay wireless streaming technology. Its fully active 2.1 design means that all five units are individually driven by dedicated audiophile class D amplifiers, which were specially designed for Bowers & Wilkins. The improved 4x25 Watts + 1x50 Watts output powers improved drive units, many of which are smaller for improved dispersion. The addition of Bowers & Wilkins Flowport® technology and advanced Digital Signal Processing has dramatically improved the bass performance. The DACs have also been upgraded, with new 24bit/96KHz capability for improved performance. Apple®s AirPlay technology allows music to be streamed wirelessly from your Mac or PC to Zeppelin Air. You can even bypass the computer entirely, and stream high-quality audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch®. All without the need to dock the device. If you have more than one Zeppelin Air, you can use them in an elegant multiroom system
