The original Zeppelin has become famous for its sleek looks and superb sound. Now B&W present the all new Zeppelin Mini, a more compact system which is perfect for bedrooms and other places where space is limited. Like its larger sibling, it still delivers a sweet, open and detailed sound that will keep you listening for hours. The familiar docking arm on top of the Zeppelin Mini really lets you get to grips with your iPod. With a soft push, the arm will even rotate the iPod into horizontal mode - ideal for the iPhone and iPod Touch and great for watching videos or using the Coverflow album browser. It also supports a direct digital connection with compatible newer iPods, meaning that you'll get the best possible sound, unfettered by any unnecessary digital to analogue conversion.
But the Zeppelin Mini is not just a iPod dock. It also features a USB socket for connection to a computer. This lets you use the Zeppelin Mini as a high quality laptop or PC/Mac speaker system, bypassing the sound card in your computer and using its own high-quality sound system to deliver the very best from your computer's music. The USB connection also lets you control iTunes playback via the Zeppelin Mini's remote control and synchronise your iPod with your iTunes playlists. There's also a stereo line (aux) input allowing you to connect CD/DVD players, games consoles and even TVs. Under the bonnet, the Zeppelin Mini features a high-quality 2 x 18 watt digital amplifier driving two 3" full-range drivers, plus a rear bass-reflex 'Flowport' for enhanced low frequency performance. It also uses an advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) system to get the very best performance from your music files. Sumptuous styling, petite proportions and superb sound make the B&W Zeppelin Mini the only choice for the discerning iPod lover.
