The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin MM-1 desktop speaker breaks new ground for computer audio. Desk-bound entertainment fans will finally get the audio performance their collection deserves. Whether it’s music, video or games, the MM-1’s performance will revolutionize the experience.
Designed by the same acoustic engineering team that developed Zeppelin and the high-end 800 Series speakers used in Abbey Road Studios, the MM-1 draws on close to five decades of experience in audio excellence. Unlike many desktop solutions, the MM-1 is a serious hi-fi speaker: a full range, active, near field monitor, with two separate drive units including an aluminum dome tweeter for a refined treble performance.
Key proprietary Bowers & Wilkins technologies such as Nautilus Tube Loaded tweeters find their way into a speaker of this type for the first time. And new DSP technologies such as Bowers & Wilkins’ own Dynamic EQ, maximizes bass output, and allows the MM-1 to provide full range sound without the need to resort to a subwoofer.
The MM-1 also has advantages for private listening, thanks to its high-quality headphone output. Audio from a computer passes through the MM-1’s DSP and into its headphone socket to produce a sound that’s a dramatic improvement over a standard PC or Mac headphone output.
Design, build and materials are very much up to the premium quality Bowers & Wilkins’ demanding customers are accustomed to. The MM-1 itself is an incredibly attractive, yet discreet piece of engineering, while the choice of materials and build quality are of class-leading quality. User-friendly features such as the integral cable management system make for a remarkable package, and the MM-1 comes supplied with a pebble remote control that provides intuitive control over the speaker, and also works within iTunes and Windows Media Player on a Mac or PC.
At work, at play or simply taking a break, the MM-1 provides you with the kind of sound that your digital media collection deserves.
Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 is available from January 2010.
