Good sound quality

YAOYU CHEN, Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Good sound quality, but the one I received is defective pretty sad. Always get disconnected and had some white noise somehow. It looks good, I guess I have to put it as decoration. Be aware, its hazardous product, cannot return.

B & W name is on the product

gingrichgroup, CNET
26 January 2012
  • Summary: For the money, it is better to hook the i-pad to a more fuller sound system. Bass is simply tin like. But i prefer this to the JBL product.
  • Pros: Those who always wanted B & W name will be quite happy.
  • Cons: Not so good sounds.

Sounds great, but loses 2 stars because of the naff wifi setup.

Jerry, Amazon
20 September 2011
  • Summary: Let me save you a couple of days - you CANNOT have any "special characters" such as an ampersand (&) in your wifi network name, or password. Since this is very common among anyone who is used to using secure passwords (including me) you may well have to reconfigure every device on your network in...

Bass driven with lack of details in sound

Mark Twain, Amazon
20 September 2011
  • Summary: Pros: Zeppelin is really handy with it's airplay. It works great and stable for me from any device. Cons: sound is not great at all. Zeppelin produces big fat bass even at low volume and that is all about it. No details in the middle, no trebles.

It's NOT Hifi

Andy, Amazon
12 September 2011
  • Summary: Dont be fooled by the hype. This does not even come close to a hifi system. A cheap cambridge audio amp and eltax monitor iii speakers completely blow this thing out of the water. Its a great and expensive ipod dock but that is were it ends.

User Review

bizfortum, Yandex
29 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Выбирал себе девайс для беспроводной передачи звука (фильмы с айпада, музыки с айфон и айпод). Дома много аппаратуры от Pioneer, хотел уже покупать его девайс с айрплэй. Но смутил дизайн, лишние навороты которые не нужны, и обилие всяких кнопок. Взял B&W.
  • Pros: Хороший звук. При выкручивании громкости на максимум - не захлебывается. Вполне способен озвучить вечеринку в комнате метров 30-50. Интеренсный дизайн, минимальное количество управлемых элементов: вкл/выкл, звук больше-меньше. Расположено удобно. Эппловские гаджеты находят его мгновенно (см.ниже).
  • Cons: Главный недостаток- потеря связи. Т.е. если Цеппелин впал в сон, то с его включением гаджеты не всегда его видят. Значек AirPlay не появляется. Приходится заново его переинициализировать - запускать настройку, устанавливать ему конфигурацию и т.д. Весьма утомительное занятие. Документация излишне...
