Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless


State-of-the-art hi-fi technology combined with seamless wireless playability thanks to AirPlay®, Bluetooth® aptX™ and Spotify® Connect.

Each of the five drivers gets its own Class D amp. Four 25-watters push a pair of 3.5-inch mids and a pair of 1-inch double-dome tweeters, while a 50-watt amp gives the 6.5-inch subwoofer surprising authority. It’s all enclosed in a thicker enclosure that’s been redesigned to improve vibration dampening. Along with the amps, an array of chips power the digital signal processing. DSP is common in digital speakers to minimize distortion and harshness at higher volumes.

Everything is upsampled to a high resolution (24bit/192kHz) before processing.

An app called Control runs on iOS, Android, Mac OS X, and Windows, and facilitates getting the Zep onto your Wi-Fi network. Sending songs to it via AirPlay and Spotify Connect works exactly as it should.
