Speakers stop working after a while. NOT a speaker problem !
I bought my wife 3 zepplin air speakers and a MacBook Air for her 40th birthday.
We placed the speakers around the house a nd had everything setup in no time, it was very simple and everything worked brilliantly.
That was until we changed internet service providers and had BT Infinity installed along with a new BT router.
After setting the speakers up to connect to the new BT router, we discovered that the speakers would stop working after 24 hours. You could no longer see the speaker on the mac or iphone until you turn them off and on again at the mains.
I discovered it was because of a setting on the BT Router that meant that the connection the router had given to speaker ( The IP Address ) would expire after 24 hours.
To get around this you have to manually setup the speaker by unticking the DHCP tick box and allocate it an IP Address that falls outside of the range of IP addresses that the BT Router would allocate to the speaker using DHCP.
E.g. if the router is set to allocate IP addresses in the range of 192.168.1.70 to 192.168.1.250 then you could allocate an IP address to the speaker of 192.168.1.60.
Now all is brilliant again !! …

Airplay Feature Edges Out Original Zeppelin
Finally managed to get my hands on the Zeppelin Air today, after almost 2 months of waiting and it does not disappoint!
In term s of sound quality, the difference over the original is not huge in my opinion. The Zeppelin Air delivers subtly more clarity in the high and mid frequencies and packs a more refined bass. Although I would like to note that any equaliser setting that favours an increase in high frequencies can make the sound a little too 'bright', so a flat setting seems ideal.
I am a huge fan of the original Zeppelin and consider it to be worth every penny of the asking price of £400. Used alongside an Airport Express with Airplay from iTunes, it was fantastic.
More people will question whether the Air is a whole £100 more than the original and I would say that it's hard to justify on sound alone. However, considering the built in Airplay; anyone intending to use it primarily for streaming (like me) will find this neat and beautiful package just edges out the original. If you want it for docked or 'Aux In' audio only, I would recommend you save your £100 as the sound quality alone isn't worth it! …

One of the best purchases I've ever made - Zeppelin Air Speakers
The sound is just not comparable. Rich, round, smooth and velvety, with good base. Everyone comments on how good it sounds.
We had it in the garden (large garden) for a summer party and the volume was sufficient enough to not be lost at all and quite honestly we could even have made it louder if we wished.
Yes, it could take a short while to set up if you have an old system (and if you're not a techie like me), but the results are just superb.
Initially I didn't consider this item as I saw it on the Gadget Show and thought it to be just the newest in pretentious gadgets, especially the shape. How wrong was I! The chap, may have been Greg at the Covent Garden Store, insisted that I listen to my own music on the Zepplin (and then others) and not look at the shape. Done and dusted and haven't looked back. Guess what, the shape has even grown on me too.
This is an excellent product and something has to be said for Apple Services too. …

Poor sound & poor functionality
This worked OK for about 6 months then after a software update it decided to lose connection (no change to my wifi setup), I ended up resetting the Zep Air a couple times a week, in the end I contacted B&W support and when they finally responded, they denied any issues and told me to get an apple airport base station, like a mug I did and guess what - no change! Overall I would say that it is somewhat outdated as the Airplay works better with a 3GS than a 4S and now with the 5 the dock is useless. Sound quality is below average, boxy and shut in compared with other Airplay systems. I would not touch this or any B&W product again. …

If the signal is lost, the Zeppelin is a horror
For one and a half year I've been trying to get my Zeppelin to function, with the help of B&W. The last time I had a visit from a great guy from B&W, but to no end. Every half hour, the Zeppelin loses the signal several times and sound falls away, and comes back 1-5 seconds later.
Is it Apple Airport? I've no problem at all with reception of Spotify, streaming video etc. on my computers. So it must be the signal for Airplay. But the problem arises with an iPhone, MacBook and iMac alike. Old, new, all the same.
B&W now tells me to go back to the (Apple) store where I bought it. There they will tell me it functions just fine. It's a network/airplay/Zeppelin problem and i'm in a feedback loop.
Expensive gadget, 600 euro, no help. Good luck with that. …
