You may not agree that Zeppelin is the greatest band of all time, but you’d have to agree that B&W’s Zeppelin could be the greatest iPod speaker ever offered. Maybe I am just a sucker for a cool design and great sound…
The company must know that we have football on the brain because they just announced that this pigskin-inspired unit is now available for purchase.
The drive units are the same ones you’d find in the company’s M-1 system. If that’s all geek speak to you, just know that the amp can output 1x 50W (bass) 2x 25W (midrange/tweeter), the frequency range is 6dB at 47Hz and 22kHz, and its got an internal subwoofer driver.
Sure it’s cool—and cool doesn’t come cheap. Expect to pay $599 at Apple stores everywhere.
