Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin wireless speaker
October 15, 2021 § Leave a comment
Not all of the Zeppelin magic is packed onto chips and in software, of course; B&W has implemented driver technologies from its stereo speakers into the Zeppelin-shaped single chassis. The Zeppelin boasts two Decoupled Double-Dome tweeters (as found in the heralded 600 Anniversary Series) as well as 90mm midrange drivers that benefit from the proprietary Fixed Suspension Transducer (FSTTM) technology used in the company’s high-end floorstanders. A 150mm subwoofer has been mounted centrally at the heart of the Zeppelin’s structure and optimised to avoid it detrimentally vibrating the cabinet as it operates. These drivers are fed by 240 watts of amplification in total – not bad at all for any size of wireless speaker.
The new Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin is available in two finishes – a dark midnight grey and a lighter pearl grey – and now features dimmable ambient lighting to create a ‘halo’ effect on its metal pedestal stand. The wireless speaker system will be available from tomorrow
