Bowers & Wilkins (B&W), manufacturer of loudspeakers for hi-fi and home theater has long since put on the market its “transportable audio system which implements its technologies in a product intended for iPod and iPhone.
Zeppelin, distributed by AudioGamma finally arrived in Italy and, thanks to the collaboration of iStuff Milano, among the first stores to exhibit it in its windows, we are able to show you a photo gallery with the audio system at work with iPod and iPhone.
If you want to bring home speakers produced by the company that creates monitors chosen by sound professionals to equip many of the most famous recording studios, including the famous Abbey Road in London or the Skywalker Sound production center created by George Lucas in California, you don't have to spend a fortune.
The B&W Zeppelin model (recommended retail price of 599 euros) is the result of the work of both the B&W engineers of the Steyning research center for the acoustic part, and Canadian designers who work in a partner company of the B&W Group for the electronic part, but above all the Native Design studio in London, founded and directed by Morten Warren, one of the most promising British industrial designers.
"The iPod, now the mp3 player par excellence, deserves the best audio reproduction there is," said Evert Huizing, B&W Executive VP of Business Development. “We believe that Zeppelin has all the credentials to guarantee it. We have incorporated 40 years of technology and know-how into a product that will allow us to introduce a new level of sound quality into everyday life. As we always say, listen and you will see! "
The most obvious feature of the Zeppelin is the particular suspended steel arm in which the iPod is inserted, which allows you to handle it and control its functions naturally, just as you usually do when using it outside the home. The connections are then facilitated by the exclusive spring-loaded coupling system suitable for the various Apple models equipped with a 30-pin connector which, unlike similar devices, does not require the use of adapters.
