As the number one imported premium loudspeaker brand in the world,
Bowers & Wilkins is a name familiar to musicians and audiophiles worldwide.
Applying its audiophile approach to iPod reproduction has resulted in the
remarkable Zeppelin. Benefiting from a 40-year history of research and
technological innovation, Zeppelin introduces sound quality usually only
available through dedicated hi-fi separates. The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin
is a one-piece amplified iPod speaker system and docking station that
transforms an iPod into a very capable, very compact stereo system.
In creating Zeppelin, Bowers & Wilkins has married top-of-the-line
audio quality with cutting edge design. Led by Morten Warren, the
award-winning team at Native Design, London, has created the look of
Zeppelin to accommodate its function: its larger bass unit sits in the
center of the device and the form tapers towards the ends, where the
smaller mid-range and tweeter drivers are accommodated. At barely two feet
wide, Zeppelin is the perfect accessory for any room in the house or office
space. Stunningly finished in polished stainless steel, Zeppelin makes an
ideal music system for office, bedroom, kitchen, or second home, or simply
as an iPod-extension appliance, delivering a level of performance and
musicality unequalled by most "Made For iPod(R)" devices.
