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.

We used to love this speaker. It played beautifully. This week we updated our home wireless router. All our other devices updated fine....except this. Three hours worth of "firmware updates" and the Zeppelin Air is still giving nothing but error messages and silence. We have tried a full system restart. We have downloaded and run the "Zeppelin Air Programmer" application. We have downloaded and run the "Zeppelin Recovery" utility. Neither has gotten it back up and running. Now it won't even recognize a docked iPad. We have had it for one year and it is a $600 paperweight. The premium price does not come with premium service. I have not had a single response to two service emails. I highly recommend you shop for a different AirPlay device.

Do you have what it takes to own a Zeppelin Air?

What a great idea! Wireless music with great speakers controlled by your iphone! A Super-dock! But for us (and a handful of fellow consumers), a terrible product, because operating a ZA requires that you pass a test, which we did not. Let me describe how we came to this conclusion. We bought the ZA at the local Apple store, and carefully followed the instructions in the box to connect to our wi-fi. It should be plug and play, right? The plug part required hooking up the ZA to a desktop computer with a (rather short) Ethernet cable, and connecting the ZA to local wi-fi. We went through the multi-step set-up sequence as carefully as we could, taking extra care to input the correct wi-fi password, as described. This was an ominous step in the instructions, warning of dire consequences if not done correctly. We were absolutely certain that this was typed in correctly (Network Don & Jess, all alphanumeric password). Once the ZA connects to your network, it will stop flashing purple and become solid purple. The instructions say, hey if this doesn't happen, don't worry, just hit the reset button and start over. Tried resetting many, many times; it didn't stop flashing purple for us - 2 hours, 3 hours of trying, searching the net for troubleshooting tips, still flashing purple. Now the Bowers & Wilkins site has a FAQ section that helpfully says that there is a firmware update, which I did, and a support section with a detailed pdf guide to download, which I did. Along the way I read that the password must be alphanumeric, that the security must be a certain type, but not another type, that the network has to support "g" protocol rather than "n". All OK, but still a flashing purple light, and the reset still did not work.
