Summary: I was looking for an I-Pod speaker system with a small footprint. After much research, this model seemed to be well rated, so I purchased it. I haven't been disappointed. The sound quality is great and makes me appreciate my music in a new way. The unit has a small footprint and fits nicely on my bathroom counter (between 2 sinks). The bass bounces off the back wall (mirror) so the sound is rich and articulated.
Summary: I was told by my son that B&W was the better of the three that I was reviewing, he was right, I had heard the others, which were also very good, but the B&W was more to my liking, especially the basses.
Summary: I bought the Zeppelin mini because I am abroad for the year and couldn't haul my big Genelec speakers with me. I bought my Zeppelin mini used from save central. Props to them, saved about 50 bucks and the dock is same as new, only slight signs of usage on the remote control. As I opened the package I found a very solidly built speaker. When I plugged it in and played some music I was very impressed.
Summary: This is an excellent product and is more than adequate for any room for quality and volume. It is smart looking and does not take up very much room. Can't beat it for the price. I had one little problem, but the manufacturer (Bowers & Wilkins) fixed it and sent it back out that very same day. Amazingly only a three day turaround! The latest itouches are just ever so slightly larger and created an intermittant connection.
Summary: i have an ipod touch 3rd generation and when connected, it is (a little) difficult to release from the dock. But for the rest...superb sound, compact size, great versatility (USB & aux). I compared with the "older" brother (B&W zeppelin) and this one is also bound for glory...6 stars would be fair.
