Bowers & Wilkins announced the new Z2 wireless speaker dock (pictured top), and the updated Zeppelin Air. Both of which feature Apple AirPlay technology for intuitive, high-quality wireless streaming and the new Lightning connector for iPhone 5 connectivity.
The company claims the Z2 offers amazing sound with new engineered drive units, while proprietary Flowport technology works to keep bass performance tight and controlled. Decades of Bowers & Wilkins acoustic engineering experience mean that while Z2 is compact, music sounds amazingly natural, controlled and fully formed, no matter how loud you play it.
The Z2 offers the choice of wireless music streaming from any Mac or PC running iTunes in addition to many iPhone and iPad models. Plus, the Lightning connector makes it easy to dock the latest generation of iPhone, iPod touch and iPod nano.
Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air (2013 model)
Zeppelin Air has also been updated with the new Lightning connector for iPhone 5 compatibility. This updated version retains the distinctive design, and offers the same room-filling, highly-detailed audio performance, but thanks to AirPlay and the addition of the new Lightning connector, Zeppelin Air is compatible with the widest possible range of iPhones, iPads and iPods.
The simple to set-up and use AirPlay technology allows you to stream music wirelessly from your iPhone or iPad to either of the new docks, or the A7 and A5 which complete Bowers & Wilkins Wireless Music System line up. It’s quick and easy, high quality, retains the rich app experience, and works from the palm of your hand. Plus, many customers already own nearly everything they need to enjoy its benefits: a Wi-Fi network and an iOS device or a computer running iTunes. This intuitive technology is made even more straightforward with the free Bowers & Wilkins setup app, downloadable from the App Store.
Zeppelin Air, Z2 and the complete Bowers & Wilkins Wireless Music System range combine traditional Bowers & Wilkins audio expertise, with AirPlay wireless streaming, the latest in digital amplifier technology and custom Digital Signal Processing, to deliver the effortless convenience and freedom of wireless music, without compromising on sound quality.
