Some News About That Other Zeppelin That Also Rocks...

By |


BW-Zeppelin-Wireless.jpgLed Zeppelin isn't the only music-making dirigible on the market that can rock your world.

Bowers & Wilkins has unveiled the latest in its renowned Zeppelin standalone audio system series. Featuring the trademark blimp-like housing, every element of the new Zeppelin Wireless has been redesigned and improved.

HomeTheaterReview.com was treated to a Zeppelin Wireless sneak peek here in San Francisco, and we are happy to report that it's sounding mighty fine. While a full review will be published in the near future, here is a little preview based on what we saw and heard:

The Zeppelin Wireless is a prime choice for audiophiles desiring superior sound in secondary listening locations, such as in the office, kitchen, or bedroom. Also perfect for urban apartment dwellers, the Zeppelin Wireless its the ideal for anyone wanting a self-contained, wireless system offering quality sound sans wires and bulky components. More than a fancy boombox, B&W has engineered a fine, compact solution which delivers a sonic punch that belies its footprint. The Zeppelin Wireless can project genuine high-fidelity sound from most any location, from bookshelf to tabletop.

Highlights of the Zeppelin Wireless update include a redesigned subwoofer, with a larger 6.5-inch driver and ultra-long voice coil to deliver deeper bass and louder volumes. The decoupled double-dome aluminum tweeters produce clean, dynamic audio that can support all styles of music; this is an award-winning technology formerly available only on B&W's CM Series loudspeaker models. The Zeppelin Wireless employs B&W's "Fixed Suspension Transducer" midrange speaker technology (found on the flagship 800 Series Diamond), which allows the speaker edge to terminate without any resonance for superior performance.

Reinforced cabinet redesign (50 percent thicker than earlier models) includes new glass fiber ribbing to minimize vibration and cabinet resonances.

The improved, proprietary DSP in the Zeppelin Wireless is twice as powerful as the Zeppelin Air model, allowing for more accurate signal processing for richer, more detailed sound at all volume levels. All inputs are state-of-the-art, upsampled to 24-bit/192-kHz resolution. Fully compatible with Apple's Airplay, Bluetooth aptX, and Spotify Connect, a new Zeppelin Wireless control app is available for iOS, Android, Mac and PC, making it even easier and convenient to use.

A one-box solution that defies sonic expectations, the Zeppelin Wireless sounds as good as it looks. Priced at $699.99 ($799.99 Canada), you can learn more about it at: www.bowers-wilkins.com/Online-Shop/shop#ZeppelinWireless.
