Style Name: 30-Pin Connector
I've had the Zeppelin Air for a little over a week now and, like any speaker, is now starting to open up. Setup was not as difficult as other reviews have described. As long as you follow the included instructions it will only take 10 minutes at the most, and given its price I'm sure most are willing to kill 10 minutes setting it up.

Setup:
You start by connecting the Air to your computer via included ethernet cable. Then you access an offline website to name the Air and log it onto your router. After waiting about 2 minutes for the flashing purple LED to turn solid, you open iTunes and start streaming music.

Streaming:
The streaming process is very good. I've had the sound cut off twice, each time was for less than 1 second. Having connected other speakers through airplay, I can tell you this is normal and just a minor bug in Apple's software.

Build:
The build quality is quite good. B&W built a rubber base into the Air, which allows the system to grip most surfaces very well. There is no handle to hold the Air, which makes moving it from room to room kind of difficult. Overall the build quality seems very solid.

Sound:
Since B&W is known for their audiophile grade equipment, it should come as no surprise that these speakers sound very good. Any serious audiophile most likely would not buy the Air however, since at this price range a bookshelf system would sound better. However, I didn't buy this system only for sound quality but also convenience and portability. The treble is clean and detailed, I would say about equal to the B&W MM-1. Mids are warm and powerful. The Bass is surprisingly good for a speaker this size. While I wouldn't say it has strong punches, it does sound very natural and present.

Style Name: 30-Pin Connector Verified Purchase
Even the packaging is of high quality. The unit is heavy and you're not really sure how to pick it up, and mindful of the expense you carefully lift it to the table. There is a very well written step-by-step instruction guide and I didn't plug the Air in until I read this guide. I followed the directions carefully and in 5-10 mins I was streaming iTunes from my MacBook Pro.

At first there was some disappointment at the quality of the sound. The sound was rather cramped, at higher volume it seemed to struggle. There was a slightly tinny uncomfortable sound, we had to turn the volume down so it was not unpleasant. The wife and I had an argument, she was adamant that the thing was not as good as numerous other ones she had heard. I was in denial, unable to accept that it was as poor as it seemed. We left it on and carried on with household chores for a couple of hours, me feeling a heavy dose of buyer's remorse.

Then it happened. We came back into the room and somebody had stolen the first pretend one and replaced it with the real McCoy. The sound had opened up, filling the room with rich, creamy, glorious music. all the cramped tinniness had gone. At high volume there was pure clarity, no distortion, sheer pleasure to listen to. The spine started tingling. Goose bumps appeared on the skin.

The unit needs to run in for a few hours so give it a while. Once it has warmed up, you will find it compares favorably with all but the poshest HiFi systems. It is an iPod dock, and perhaps I should not compare it with HiFi. The limitation is the proximity of the speakers; there is little stereo separation unless you are close to the unit compared with having separate loud speakers set 10 feet apart.

I bought two of these, and both of them had problems. Both devices failed from two different resons. B&W representative gave me warranty for the first time they failed.
Second time they failed (yes, like one wasn't enough!) the guy said I would have to pay for the repair after they fixed it, he said the warranty would not apply for a second time. The B&W warranty was supposed to work for 5 years, so I sent an email to B&W and got no reply. Bad warranty, bad support, both devices failed.

Style Name: 30-Pin Connector
I got my B&W Zeppelin Air with very high hopes after reading rave reviews but unfortunately found out just how bad B&W's quality control is. Don't get me wrong, when the speakers do work - they are simply the best that you can find for your iPod! When I got my Zeppelin, it simply would not work - I could not connect it to my home network despite following the complicated instructions exactly. The worst thing was that the unit refused to play even If I docked my iphone on it - all I got was a flashing purple light. Then soon enough all I got was a steady white light - and the unit was simply dead! I contacted B@W customer support and have yet to receive a response from them.

Anyway - I returned the unit and got another - which to my surprise - did actually work! I was able to connect the Zeppelin to my network easily by using my iPhone rather than hook up my computer. Everything was good - and the music was sounding heavenly! But my joy was short lived. The airplay simply stopped mid-song after about 3 minutes. I had to power down the unit and restart for it to start playing my playlist over airplay again. Again it played for about 4 minutes and stopped - paused for about 30 seconds and started again. I have yet to enjoy a complete album over airplay without the Zeppelin stopping suddenly. BTW the unit plays flawlessly in the dock mode (blue light mode) with an iPod attached.

After some research I have concluded that B@W have created a lemon when it comes to the airplay implementation.
