After a limited launch through John Lewis and the Apple Store, B&W's £400 Zeppelin iPod dock is finally going on general sale across the UK.
Bowers & Wilkins is not be the first specialist British loudspeaker maker to build a speaker dock for the iPod. But it has created one of the most iconic designs yet. And if its 40-year reputation for sonic excellence is anything to go by, this country’s biggest name in acoustic engineering may just have made one of the best docks to date.
Inside the 64cm-long dirigible are five drive units powered by a total of 100W of amplification. Onboard digital signal processing and careful cabinet engineering ensure this iPod dock has a clear, dynamic sound that will be appreciated over a wide listening area.
Connections at the back let you play other sources through the Zeppelin or channel images from your iPod to a TV.
The £400 inc VAT B&W Zeppelin iPod dock is available from bowers-wilkins.com.
