B&W launches Zeppelin Mini

Iconic airship styling discarded

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Some two years after audio firm Bowers & Wilkins launched its iconic Zeppelin iPod speaker system, the company has launched a smaller version – the Zeppelin Mini.

B&W's Zeppelin Mini: half the size of the original

The original model measured 640mm from end-to-end, yet the smaller model’s width is a more table-top friendly 320mm.

However, the Zeppelin Mini looks nothing like its predecessor because B&W have opted for a design more akin to a squashed version of London’s Olympic stadium.

The Zeppelin Mini boasts several new features, though, including an iPod docking arm that’s able to rotate through 90° - ensuring you can access the Apple player’s Cover Flow menu system.

Other design changes include the ability to stream music to the Mini directly from your PC or Mac through a USB connection. This means you can also simultaneously sync your iPod to your PC, B&W added.

Does not look like an airship...

In terms of acoustics, the Zeppelin Mini has two 75mm drive units, a frequency range of -6dB at 38Hz and 20kHz, and an amplifier power output of 36W.

Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Mini will be available in the UK next month for £299 ($494/€340). ®
