Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin
Nov 19, 2007 8:00 AM
B&W’s Zeppelin sets a new mark for iPod playback units. The one-piece amplified speaker system and docking station is designed to transform an iPod into a sophisticated compact stereo music system. Nearly 2ft. wide, the Zeppelin is finished in polished stainless steel. The tapered ends of the system house the midrange and tweeter drivers, with each pair of midrange/tweeters spaced as far as possible to the left and right to achieve the most stereo separation possible.
Low frequencies are handled by a single 5in. bass driver located in the center of the unit, and bass performance is enhanced by twin rear-firing ports. The 100W system divvies up sound into 25W each for the mid/high-frequency sections and 50W for the bass. When docked, the iPod brings up a special Zeppelin speaker menu, which users can access to tune response for individual preference. Rear S-video and composite-video outputs deliver iPod video to a big screen. A combination analog/digital mini-jack input enables Zeppelin to play back virtually any non-iPod audio source.
