Stairway to Heaven - Zeppelin iPod Speaker System

bw_zeppelin-speaker.jpg

The legendary English company, Bowers & Wilkins, known for its high-performance loudspeakers, designed this speaker system with the iPod in mind.

Using the B&W 800 series as a jumping off point, the Zeppelin incorporates the midrange and tweeter drivers in a curved profile that produces smooth response and evenly distributed sound. Bass comes from a 5-inch subwoofer located in the center and twin rear-firing ports.

The Zeppelin includes a "pebble-like mini remote" handset for volume, source select and mute control that works with iPods’ play/pause and track-selection functions.

With Zeppelin, B&W offers high-end sonic experience , and at $599, the early adopters will be the die-hard audiophiles, who will pony up the cash for this beautifully designed system.

In an ironic twist, this stereo system for your iPod is dubbed "Zeppelin," and though it will be selling at Apple stores this fall, you still can't download any Zep tunes from iTunes. Doesn't seem fair, does it?
