B&W Zeppelin Wireless Review


” If you plan to use the Zeppelin through wireless connection, you can pretty much put the speaker in any desired location in the house near an available power outlet.

” The next four models are the FXA series, beginning with the FXA2 for $199 (which has been tuned with slightly more bass to appeal to drummers and bassists) and topping out with the FXA7, for $499. These models all have a 3D metallic housing in a variety of colors.
