 believe Zeppelin delivers the truest, most life-like sound from it. We've
 incorporated our 40 years of technology and know-how into a product that we

 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

 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.
