The recently launched Zeppelin Air now available in South Africa through HFX Systems. The Zeppelin Air is the ultimate AirPlay wireless audio system with updated drive units and advanced Digital Signal Processing, plus fully integrated AirPlay technology so users can easily stream music wirelessly from their iTunes, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Three years ago the original multi-award winning Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin redefined what could be expected from an iPod speaker system. Now, Zeppelin Air provides another seismic shift in audio performance, design and functionality with completely updated drive units, up-rated amplification and the latest in Digital Signal Processing to deliver improved sound quality. And while Zeppelin’s iconic shape has been retained, subtly updated styling help modernise this design classic.
Innovative AirPlay technology
The improved sonic performance is complemented by a collection of new features, foremost among which is the inclusion of new AirPlay technology. AirPlay lets users create an easy to set up multi-room system with iTunes on Mac or PC, delivering music to multiple Zeppelin Air units around the house.
Great audio quality
The best sounding Zeppelin yet, Zeppelin Air features dramatic changes over previous models. It’s a fully active 2.1 design, which means that all five units are individually driven by dedicated audiophile amplifiers, which are specially designed by Bowers & Wilkins. The improved 4x25W + 1x50W output powers updated drive units, for a truly room-filling performance.
Dramatically improved bass performance
Zeppelin Air also features Bowers & Wilkins Flowport technology and advanced Digital Signal Processing in the form of Dynamic EQ; these combine with a significantly upgraded port for dramatically improved bass performance. The DACs have also been upgraded, with 24bit-96KHz capability for compatibility with emerging high-quality audio formats.
AirPlay requires iTunes 10.1 or later and iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 4.2 or later.
