Bowers & Wilkins preps Zeppelin Mini speaker dock

B&W Zeppelin Mini for iPhone, iPod

Bowers & Wilkins on Monday reached out with a lower-priced version of its more audiophile-grade iPhone and iPod speaker dock. The Zeppelin Mini drops the ovoid shape of its predecessor but is noticeably smaller and still produces a very high 100W of total power. Also, a new rotating dock lets iPhone, iPod touch and iPod nano owners keep their devices in landscape mode for Cover Flow or movie watching.

Besides addressing most Apple Dock Connector players, the Mini takes not just auxiliary input from devices with 3.5mm headphone jacks but also a Mac or Windows PC's own audio through a USB connection. That same link can also be used to sync the Apple hardware through a standby mode.

The new Zeppelin is due in October and will cost much less than the full-size version, coming in at $399.

    Nice

    The rotating dock is a nice touch. $400 for a B&W system isn't a bad price either.
