Bowers & Wilkins, the renowned British audio brand, introduced the original Zeppelin integrated speaker dock seven years ago. Keeping the recognisable silhouette, but with every element of the speaker redesigned, the are now introducing the Zeppelin Wireless. For Zeppelin Wireless the material and shape of the subwoofer has been altered with a larger 6-1/2” driver and an ultra-long voice coil to allow deep bass to be played at volume, while decoupled double-dome tweeters and FST midrange drivers produce clean, dynamic audio. A new reinforced cabinet has been designed with a front fascia 50% thicker than the previous version. Specially designed glass-fibre ribs strengthen the cabinet in order to produce sound that is free from vibration.
The Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is twice as powerful as its predecessor and all inputs are upsampled to 24bit/192kHz resolution. Zeppelin Wireless includes Airplay, Bluetooth aptX and Spotify Connect. Control App has also been updated and is available via iOS, Android, Mac and PC.
The new Zeppelin Wireless is priced at USD $699.99 (in Canada $799.99) and is available online immediately and in retail locations by Oct. 15th.
