Summary: First off, I am a huge fan of B&W speakers, and the sound coming from this unit is phenomenal. It is definitely in line with that I've come to know as B&W. The setup of the unit using the Control app was quite straight-forward. That is where the happiness ends.
Summary: Great looking speaker but it does not work. The AirPlay feature, which is the sole reason for my purchase of this product, does not work. I tried multiple times, then contacted tech support with no success. The product should not be advertised as AirPlay compatible.
Amazon is not authorised to sell these units and B&W will not honour warranty claims

Summary: Just found out the hard way that amazon is not the authorized reseller so my warranty claim will not be honoured for defective unit. I am getting stiffed as its not under return policy of amazon and B&W refused to honour warranty.

Summary: I wish i had read the reviews before buying this. I had so many problems setting this up, i have given up and it is sitting in it's box until i get round to putting it on ebay. I had expected something well designed and practical from B&W, and their support was abysmal, so last time i will be buying...
Buy this if having your device disconnect in the middle of your favourite song is for you!

Summary: Awesome sound, really. Not as god as the A7 but ... very very good sound ... which is why, when it drops the connection in the middle of your favourite song ... little to no buffering, no auto reconnect ... terrible using airplay. Put the iphone in the dock and fine .. but then ..
Summary: First one didn't work. Second one worked after firmware update, new router and loads of hassle. Worked for a while then lost connection to router. Loads of hassle to get it to connect then a few months later the same. This time I cannot get to connect!

Summary: Some explanation required as to why I am reviewing a product I don't yet own. I await delivery of a reconditioned (ie second-hand failure) Zeppelin Air which I was forced to purchase for £199 from B&W after my £399 Zeppelin gave up the ghost three weeks ago.
