I've gotten it to work on a few occasions, but most of the time it just reports that it's connected and doesn't have any actual audio.
On plenty of occasions I will select multiple outputs in iTunes and just include the Zeppelin for the hell of it (Let's see if it wants to work today!) and then I will be listening to music for a few hours and suddenly it comes to life and joins the party. For how long, we never know.
The technical support is virtually nonexistent. I am fairly sure I have a defective device but I was unable to return it or get any kind of quality help from B&W whatsoever. What's worse is I've talked to other people both online and IRL that have the same exact problem, so I know I'm not a unique case.
Way to support your product, guys. Bravo.
Don't buy this unless you're interested in a really expensive paperweight.
I was truly blown away by the sound. It would be unfiar to compare this speaker to the aforementioned speakers, I'll just stay I took the Bose back. Many reviewers have mentioned how difficult it is to set this puppy up using the included instructions and I will have to agree. What bogles my mind is why B&W does not include instructions on how to set this up using their own app. If you search Apple's app store for "Bowers & Wilkins AirPlay Setup," you will be able to download the app and allow for airplay in under five minutes. I've done this with my iPhone 4, iPad 2 and new iPad; they all work great.
You can still dock your iDevice and use the included controller to change songs, volume levels, etc. So, save yourself a headache and just use the app to setup.
Setup was easy, once I viewed the step-by-step video by B&W. It was true that it takes a couple of hours of play to settle (various little sounds) the pipes/speakers, but once they settle, it is a concert-like experience in your own home. I tried various genres from classical, Hawaiian, rock/pop, to electronic, and they all sounded fantastic. Airplay is wonderful and really easy to use with any Apple device or iTunes. I use my iPhone, iPod touch, Gateway PC w/iTunes, and the lady's iPad 2. You can attach all the apple devices mentioned on the handle to play music and display (album art), videos, including youtube and movies on my devices. Also, it charges the device at the same time.
Buy it! If you have some extra funds or need a couple of months to pay it off. It's an investment of time. Your time, your enjoyment, your happiness. Music is life and we should all appreciate it with the best sound. You deserve it, this time. It'll enhance your life, trust me.
set-up is easy enough -- I ended up using it with an apple-airport express since my old-apple tv (with a hard drive) does not stream to the zepplin but it streams to an airport express. As an aside, this is another way that Apple is slowly but surely pissing off its customers; apple has some great products but its habit of abandoning products even 2-3 years old is very irritating. I love my old apple tv since it has a hard drive where I can store all my music and stream directly from there without opening my computer. When I bought the zepplin air I assumed I will be able to stream directly from my old apple tv to the zepplin air, however apple has not updated the airplay software on the old apple tv and thus i can only stream to the zepplin air from itunes, my iphone and ipad.
Attn: All potential New York (or any big city) buyers of Zeppelin Air. First do a speed check on your download speed in the actual location of any Wireless AirPlay Speaker unit. (speedtest.net for example) I returned 2 B&W AirPlay products because they repeatedly cut out. Turned out my reception (in spite of 4 bars) was ridiculous. Routers really degrade download speed. Only when I switched to Apple Extreme and 2 Express bumpers did I get sufficient download speed to support the AirPlay. It is a terrific machine, just needs to get gas in the tank. Hint: if your set up is difficult, it might be a network problem, not an issue with the B&W AirPlay.
