Wireless sound system that is also a handy iPod dock

claire405, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: My other half had been eying up the Zeppelin for several years and I finally took the plunge and bought him one for Christmas. I bought it from John Lewis for £449, but check their website because they also sell Grade B stock (this is returned and refurbished stock) for £399. Both version come with a 2 year guarantee. We have the latest model (as of December 2012) Zeppelin Air which includes the AirPlay function.

  • Summary: Having experienced a problem setting the system up, I was told of a technical glitch that made it incompatible with my router. Customer support was dismissive - and frankly the product is just a glorified boom box with the airplay facility useless. Extremely frustrating and I would return in a heartbeat if it wasn't out of the retailer's return expiry time limit.
  • Pros: Sounds good
  • Cons: Customer care support

THE High-end iPod dock

29 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I, like many, have been through many means of playing music from my iPod/iPhone in my bedroom...connected it to the back of my Hi-Fi via Auxiliary cable, had it connected directly to portable speakers and a couple of docks. They all play the music, yes, but when it comes to audio i'm a bit picky to say the least. I like to have a room filled with high quality sound that I can crank up when desired.

Very expensive but will not disappoint - worth the investment!

  • Excerpt: I spent absolutely ages in John Lewis (much to the annoyance of my girlfriend) trying to comparing several iPod docks from the major manufacturers in this field. Now I'm writing this review so you don't have to! The main thing that has to be considered when investing in a piece of kit like this is of course the sound quality.

Quite simply the best speakers I have ever heard

  • Excerpt: Im not a techy bod, so im writing this for the layman, because thats what I am. Whilst attending a wedding in brighton, we stayed in a hotel for several days on the marina for a few days and when we walked in I saw this huge black traffic cone sitting on the table, I didnt know what to make of it at first thinking it was some sort of alien craft..

small in size, big on sound

  • Excerpt: Our front room, and more exactly how to fill it with sound, had long been a subject of discussion in our household before this B & W solved the debate that had been raging between me and my other half for quite a while. I've got to admit that hi-fi equipment is not my area of expertise, and I don't know my tweeter from my midrange frankly (so stop reading now if you are looking for that kind of review), however I do know that whilst I do want to be able to listen to...

  • Summary: i've had the zeppelin for few months now and its still amazes me . i didnt even own an ipod when i saw it but got one just so i could buy the zeppelin. at first i thought the bass was far too much but as i hadnt owned an ipod i didnt really know what i was doing with the sound options but once you sort the bass out and ignore your neighbours constantly complaining about the noise its unreal .
  • Pros: unbelievably good sound
  • Cons: remote is very basic

  • Summary: I think this is an epic docking system, and looks the part with an iPad hooked up to it. Whether in a small room, or played out in the open, the quality obliterates anything I've heard iPod dock wise. However, saying this, it is still an iPod dock.. £400! That's insane, with very few features. However I can't wait to hook up my PS3 to it. Very happy I have it, but would I buy it again for the same price? No.
  • Pros: Sound quality
  • Cons: Price tag

  • Summary: I have both B&W Zepplin and the Vaf Octavio 1. They both sound really good but the Vaf sounds better at louder volumes than the Zepplin but you can use more of the ipod touch menu controls with the Zepplin remote. On the Vaf remote is only good for volume up or down and <> and power on/off functions on the remote. You can get the Vaf for just under $200 if you look around on the net. Zepplin is cheapest on Ebay for aroun $450 to $550.
  • Pros: They both look and sound really good. The Vaf has way better bass and cleaner highs at higher volumes.
  • Cons: Zepplin too expensive and has way more distortion at higher volumes levels. Vaf limited remote functions with ipod touch menu (interface)

  • Summary: looking at either the Vaf octavio 1 or the Zeppelin, not sure which way to go yet? Where is the cheapest place to source a Zeppelin? Do the Octavio 1 have the same connectivity in regards to being able to hook up to TV and also an Airport Express? Has anyone heard if the Airport Express will be able to do video in future? Would love to be able to stream music to the player and video to the TV wirelessly.
