    Easy setup if you know how....... for me the best Product 2011!

    • Written by from Schaumburg

    I picked it up at the Apple store yesterday they have limited units on stock!
    Install was easy - thanks to "JS" for the advice to first update the FW it was realy helpfull without any problems. Sound and Bass is better than the most Hometheatres specialy in this price range.
    I´m so happy that i spent this amount of money for the Zeppelin Air. After you have it running at home you feel its worth every penny!

    Nice Sound, worth every penny

    • Written by from Houston

    I just received my Zeppelin and being a visitor to USA, I asked my friend to purchase it for me so that I can bring back home.
    Well, stunning and warm sound. Amazing room music filling capability, you almost do not need to sit directly in front of the speaker to hear the best sound. I am enjoying every moment of it in my hotel room (It going to be challenging to re-package it back!!)
    I would recommend set the bass to +1 (max) to get the best 3D sound.
    Best for room listening. Good bass and treble clarity.
    I hope B+W fix the issue with earlier model pre-mature product failure! This is going to be my nice piece of equipment that I will use often!
    Strongly recommend. It put Bose and other to shame.

    Extremely hard to connect to the wifi network

    • Written by from Calgary

    Extremely difficult to connect it to the wifi network. Actually, I haven't been able to properly connect it yet. It connects for 4-5 minutes afterward disconnects. I've expected way more from a company like b&w. A pair of speakers hooked to an airport might be a better option.

    Nice alterative to a sound bar

    • Written by from Dallas

    I've enjoyed high quality audio for a while in both multii-channel and stereo formats. I like the everything about a multi-channel setup except for the fact that it begins to take over the room it is setup in. I became tired of the cables, stands, subwoofer, can't put this furniture here, etc...etc..
    I decided to move to a simple, one piece solution, and the Zeppelin Air fit the bill. After looking into some different sound bar options I decided that I didn't care for something that pretends to produce multi-channel audio. I just wanted something that sounded nice and clear, but still could produce clean bass without a separate subwoofer. Well the Zeppelin Air also does that, and it looks fantastic as well. The Zeppelin has just the right inputs for my needs, I use the USB for my computer and the optical input for my Xbox 360. I'm happy and now my living room is much more comfortable to be in.

    Airplay works flawlessly....sound better than direct connect....

    • Written by from NORTHPORT

    First off, the apple retail stores, now have this item in stock for sale. I ran down to replace my original zeppelin....When I got home ..I immediately hooked my iphone directly to the unit...the sound was about on par with the original...the bass was definitely a little overpowering...so I went to equilizer and turned treble boost on...and I liked the sound better.....but the verdict was still a hold out for me...so I went..the setup requires you to connect the ethernet cable directly to your computer, mac or windows....I did and went thru the set up process..important you follow the setup to the tee....wait for the blinking lights to stop and turn solid purple ect.....I also recommend you download remote app from app store...it free and will see your whole library.....of songs...ok now, I dont know if its my imagine...but the sound from airplay actually sounds better and fuller than the direct connection....amazing quality from these speakers....you can even control the volume from your iphone ipad or ipod touch....the sound is incredible..that with airplay working wirelessly...Bowers and Wilkins have a home run product on their hands..highly recommended..im so glad I sold my old unit to upgrade to this.

    awesome sound, terrible set up!

    • Written by from colorado springs

    Looks great, sounds great. Followed instructions very carefully and would not connect when I attempted to set it up with my macbook pro using the ethernet cable. After 4 attempts (and much frustration) tried to set it up with the ipad instructions. Worked like a charm first time with the ipad!!! You must go to the B & W website to get the iphone/ipad set up instructions.

    Simply excellent!

    • Written by from Burien

    I have had it for a couple of days. Initially when I set it up, I was quite disappointed with the quality of the sound. I started playing with positioning of the speaker; I tried elevating it, turning it, putting it a little distance from a wall, then back...and yes I found the sweet spot. As with any speaker, positioning of one makes a big difference.

    I have been waiting for the "air" to come out for a couple of reasons; one - new set of speakers, each supported by an individual amp (which makes a huge difference when you crank it up, creating almost no distortion), two - capability of listening to my music from an iPhone without docking - which is very handy when you change stations that run off of apps, otherwise you would have to get up to do so.

    Overall, this is an excellent speaker set. I am considering getting another one for a my bedroom after I test it for a few weeks.

    Great System!

    • Written by from voorhees

    This sound system is amazing!! I was able to set it up in about 10 minutes total. The only reason it took 10 minutes was that I went to B&W's website under support for the Zeppelin Air and downloaded the firmware upgrade before I even set it up. I read the previous reviews and figured this would solve most, if not all of them. I then loaded the firmware into the Zeppelin Air following the instructions very close. I then set up the Zeppelin on my Mac. I had no problems at all and have not had any issues with the Airplay function at all. Definitely worth the money! I hope this helps everyone!

    Good Buy

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    Sound quality for such a small loud speaker system is really great. A set of two I think would be even better. The Bass on one unit however does not really perform all that well at high volume ranges, though it does not crack at high volumes, a noticeable decrease in bass sound quality is most definitely noted. So if you have a playlist like I do that has music with some bounce, you might be a bit disappointed when cranking it up. As a side note I would like to see B&W provide the option for an external Sub Woofer that will pair with my Zeppelin Air to add an increased dimension, and reach my desired musical listing satisfaction. Good Purchase

    B&W Zeppelin air

    • Written by from Tulsa

    The online reviews of this don't do it justice. The sound is truly amazing for an ipod/iphone dock and I could honestly give it a nod over a decent home stereo as it's simply that good. The only reason I can't go 5 stars is the occasional drop out of the air play. It's possible it's my home network, but I was honestly hoping it would be a little stronger than what it is. Overall though, the occasional drop out was far outweighed by the sound.
    I didn't find airplay set up too hard, just connected it to my imac via the supplied ethernet cable and followed the diagrams that were provided. Pretty sure I was up and running in about 5 mins. B&W have done it again with this one and I'm very happy to have it!

    Great product, difficuly wireless setup

    • Written by from Franklin

    Packaging is beautiful. And the hardware design is stunning. Very solid and it looks great in any room. Obviously, it is very easy to get going. Plug it in the wall, hook up an iPod, and you’re off.

    HOWEVER, getting it on the network was a problem. Followed the instructions to a T. I kept ending up with a red flashing light. I reset, reset, reset to no avail. I started getting quite frustrated. Finally, I just began turning it on and off and it eventually showed up in iTunes. No idea how or why and I can’t recall the steps so it can be reproduced. Just glad I got it going. Works fine now from my iPhone and MacBook Pro.

    Initial feeling is that the sound is great but needs some breaking in to get to max enjoyment.
