Updated Zeppelin speaker loses dock, relies on streaming
Bowers & Wilkins has updated the Zeppelin speaker once again, making its speakers more powerful while simplifying its design. The new Zeppelin Wireless retains the shape of its predecessors, except the company has removed the dock element completely, instead requiring users to stream audio wirelessly to the speaker using AirPlay, Bluetooth aptX, and Spotify Connect from their mobile devices.
Makes several upgrades over original Zeppelin
Audio specialist Bowers & Wilkins has announced the Zeppelin Air, a new luxury speaker system aimed at iPhone, iPod and iPad users. While equipped with a dock, the Air's main feature is support for AirPlay, Apple's recently-introduced wireless streaming technology. Any AirPlay-compatible device can stream audio to the speaker, including computers running iTunes.
