In true B&amp;W design fashion, the Z2 is minimalist and gracefully curved, with an attractive metal grill to protect its drive units while something dubbed 'Flowport' technology works to keep bass in check. The black Z2 will be out in April while the white model will hit shelves in June. Both colours will set you back £330.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/tv-and-hi-fi/news-nugget/bw-outs-z2-speaker-dock-and-zeppelin-air-with-lightning-connector-good </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/bw/bw-outs-z2-speaker-dock-and-zeppelin-air-lightning-connector-goodness/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/bw/bw-outs-z2-speaker-dock-and-zeppelin-air-lightning-connector-goodness/news#comments B&W Zeppelin Air Tue, 19 Mar 2013 10:08:43 +0000 Esat Dedezade 424510 at http://www.stuff.tv B&W Zeppelin Air http://www.stuff.tv/bw/bw-zeppelin-air/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A well as an unusual cigar-shaped chassis, this distinctive speaker also packs Apple AirPlay for wireless streaming from iTunes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="B&amp;W Zeppelin Air" alt="B&amp;W Zeppelin Air" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Zeppelin-Air-3_0.jpg?1369747379" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="B&amp;W Zeppelin Air" alt="B&amp;W Zeppelin Air" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Zeppelin-Air-1_0.jpg?1369747379" /> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £500.00 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-price-from"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> AirPlay and iTunes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The weighty, well-built Zeppelin has had a slight rejig, but it remains unmistakable. The original premium iPod dock is now one of the first AirPlay docks; you can stream music to it from an iThing, Mac or PC via iTunes, using your Wi-Fi network. Its USB input lets you sync your iOS device to iTunes from the dock, a video output will pipe its videos to a screen and a 3.5mm input hooks up other music players. The speaker is supplied with a fairly basic remote, but you can also your iDevice’s more detailed interface for full control of your music.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sound quality </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Switching between a docked iPhone and an AirPlay device isn’t as slick as we’d like, but it works.

high-design iPod docks. The original Zeppelin was the first dedicated Apple speaker dock to live up to the design of the device it hosted, while the second-gen Zeppelin Mini toned down the blimp references in favour of a more luggable piece of kit.</p> <p>Evolution Mk III – the just-announced Zeppelin Air – harks back to the original airship design, but adds Apple’s AirPlay wireless streaming tech to get music and other audio from your Mac or PC to the speakers sans wires. It’s taking the plug out of plug ‘n’ play.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/ces/news-nugget/bw-unwires-the-zeppelin-air </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/bw/bw-unwires-zeppelin-air/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/bw/bw-unwires-zeppelin-air/news#comments B&W Zeppelin Air Wed, 05 Jan 2011 00:00:00 +0000 admin 15454 at http://www.stuff.tv
