B&W Zeppelin
Bowers & Wilkins’ Zeppelin
August 14, 2007 by Arlen Schweiger

You may not be able to download albums from legendary rockers Led Zeppelin at Apple’s iTunes store yet, but next month you can buy a Zeppelin at select Apple stores online to play your iPod music (including whatever Zep CDs you ripped onto iTunes yourself).

The Zeppelin is a high-performance powered speaker system from Bowers & Wilkins designed to improve the quality of playback for the current range of iPods.

B&W’s Zeppelin is a one-piece amplified system and docking station that’s about 2 feet wide with polished stainless steel and a tapered shape that indeed looks like a Zeppelin.

For performance, the Zeppelin’s ends incorporate the midrange and tweeter drivers similar to that of B&W’s 800 Series loudspeakers for a curved profile that produces smooth response and evenly distributed sound, the company says. Bass comes from a 5-inch ‘subwoofer’ located in the center and twin rear-firing ports.

The Zeppelin includes a pebble-like mini remote handset for volume, source select and mute control that works with iPods’ play/pause and track-selection functions. The Zeppelin will be available in September for $599 at select Apple Stores and online at http://store.apple.com.
