A high quality speaker system, not a boom box.

Mark D Minnigerode, Amazon
23 February 2011
  • Summary: This speaker is about quality, not loudness. If you're expecting thumping and fancy surround processing you'll be disappointed. If you want something compact that can sit on your desk or nearby and sound detailed and fantastic then you'll be happy. Your old mp3 rips and otherwise low quality stuff will sound true on this system, that is, kinda crappy. On other systems this will be hidden due to the relatively low quality and signal processing.

A very competent package

Ammy_Evaluator, Amazon
21 February 2011
  • Summary: I really like this iPod dock - its audio reproduction is quite true to my ears - with nice high and mid tones and bass. The sound stage is spot on, and is simple pure and clear sound. I have this running for hours on end, and I've yet to be tired of listening to it. The construction is really solid, with the arm that holds the iPod having a nice satisfying (but inaudible) click as it moves into position (horizontal or vertical).

Good with iPhone 4

Motohiro Takayama "mootoh", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: Though the web sites do not say it supports iPhone 4, I can use it with my iPhone 4, with no stress (like annoying confirmation dialog saying 'the device is not supported to use with iPhone). I'm feeling lucky! I have another iPhone capable speaker of YAMAHA, TSX-70. I love the sound of TSX-70 than of Zeppelin mini, but it does great job in my small room.

Very nice sound, and build quality but a little too expensive.

AmazonDiva "Keep Calm and Carry On.", Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: Here's the short and sweet(!) review of this great speaker. The build quality of the Zeppelin Mini is terrific - black and stainless steel silver and very sleek. It looks like art piece on your bedside or living room table. It also sounds great, the best reproduction I've heard from a speaker this size for an MP3 player. It can fill a medium sized room very nicely,like a bedroom, but may be found lacking if you put it in a large living room.

Zeppelin Mini is a premium product but does not overcome the laws of physics.

Rankadmiral, Amazon
11 February 2010
  • Summary: B&W built the Zeppelin Mini with the same impeccable style and quality as the original Zeppelin. Arguably, the Mini is a better industrial design than its larger counterpart. However, potential buyers should be aware that they have not been able to overcome the laws of physics. This is a small speaker system and will not achieve the bass extension or volume of a larger system.

Good dock thats slightly overpriced

Canis Majoris, Amazon
20 January 2010
  • Summary: This is advertised and assumed to be one of the best Ipod docks out there although the "mini" edition of the Zeppelin does not quite garner the use of such a title. The mini's predecessor--the Zeppelin--is a worthy enough unit to be considered one of the elite and it can not be done justice going side to side with the mini. So you might say, "Well isn't that what the lower price tag is for?" Not Exactly.

Excellent sound in a tiny package

Michael J. Edelman, Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: There are a lot of add-on speakers for iPods (and other MP3players) on the market. Most consist of tiny speakers that produce sound more akin to a 1960s transistor radio. A few have built in amplification that raises them to the level of the speakers that come with an inexpensive desktop computer. And a very few, liuke this unit, are really listenable. I have long been a fan of B&W speakers- in fact, I have a pair of B&W D100s in my living room.

1/2 of a full size zeppelin--in every way

A. Reader, Amazon
21 December 2009
  • Summary: I'm writing this review a little early so that people can have the benefit of this review before Christmas. I'm lucky enough to already have this unit. 4.5 stars. For people who have already bought this unit: DOWNLOAD THE NEWEST FIRMWARE FROM THEIR WEBSITE. IT MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE. For people who are thinking about it: -Who shouldnt buy this unit: If price is an issue to you, dont buy this unit. Buy something with almost as good sound for a fraction of the cost.
