Zeppelin has retained the Zeppelin body shape from its predecessor and the front sits a beautifully designed dock. Here you can connect almost any iPhone or iPod model you want, apart from the little Shuffle. The on-screen, we see not, and in knappväg is nothing more than a power button and volume control. The rear holds, among other things, a USB connector that lets you sync podcasts with iTunes when it stands in the dock, and a composite output to pull up the pictures and video on a TV.
Like its predecessor, offers Zeppelin Air a large, warm and dynamic sound that beats most of the competitors on their fingers. It may be worthwhile to tinker a bit with the placement for optimal bass response, but it pays well. The bass is surprisingly deep with substantial pressure, and the sound is remarkably clean and detail over the whole range. Add to that the speaker plays horribly loud without distortion so Zeppelin Air a great party speaker.
On the other hand, it is certainly worth the effort to mess around with network settings. Then you can play your entire iTunes library in the speaker over the net, and if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch you can also use the Remote app to control the whole hog with the phone. It is also possible to stream Spotify in this way.
