The following is a press release issued by Bowers & Wilkins.
October 8, 2015 - Bowers & Wilkins, the British audio brand renowned for its uncompromising pursuit of sound excellence, redefined what could be expected from an integrated speaker dock with the original Zeppelin. Now, seven years on, they announce Zeppelin Wireless—the instantly recognizable silhouette—but with every element of the speaker redesigned to deliver superlative audio performance, again redefining what is possible from a single speaker system.
As beautiful as it is sonically capable, its sweeping contours command aesthetic appreciation while also producing a reassuring room-filling sound. Zeppelin Wireless is as comfortable relaying crystal clear music from the bookshelf as it is the centerpiece of any room, while the improved sound quality creates an acoustic experience that belies its size.
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 impressive volume, while decoupled double-dome tweeters and FST midrange drivers produce remarkably clean, dynamic audio that is perfect for all styles of music.
A new reinforced cabinet has been redesigned with a front fascia 50% thicker than the previous version, while specially designed glass fibre ribs strengthen the cabinet in order to produce a pure sound that is free from vibration, synonymous with Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
With Digital Signal Processing (DSP) twice as powerful as its predecessor, Zeppelin Wireless creates a rich and detailed sound, at all volume levels, ensuring a truly engaging listening experience. All inputs are upsampled to 24bit/192kHz resolution – the sort of technology once reserved only for state- of-the art DACs!
The most functional wireless speaker system yet, Zeppelin Wireless includes Airplay, Bluetooth aptX and Spotify Connect—meaning flawless sound is only a few taps away. Control App has also been updated and is available via iOS, Android, Mac and PC, so now it’s easier and more convenient for you to control volume and playback functions for the ultimate easy listening experience on all your devices.
For a one-box solution that defies expectations on sound, the Zeppelin Wireless is as good seen as it is heard.
The new Zeppelin Wireless is priced at USD $699.99 (in Canada $799.99) and available online immediately at www.bowers-wilkins.com/Online-Shop/shop#ZeppelinWireless and retai locations by Oct. 15.
