Cons

super high price point for an iPod dock

1 agrees

requires buying into Apple's products/ecosystem for use of most features - iPod/iPhone/iPad for docking, iTunes running on Windows or OSX for streaming

1 agrees

doesn't work with older iPods (older than the Classic)

1 agrees

AirPlay isn't as easy to set up as Apple's other products usually are - requires several technical steps to get working

1 agrees

protruding metal dock looks awkward when streaming via WiFi

1 agrees

looks a little silly

The B&W Zeppelin Air is a premium-grade soundbar / iPod docking station that incorporates Apple’s AirPlay wireless technology. This means users can now wirelessly stream content from an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or networked computer with iTunes. The interior has also been upgraded from previous generations. There are 24bit/96KHz DACs that give it the added edge previous models lacked. In fact, B&W claims the Air is the “best iPod speaker ever.” There are a total of five channels configured in a 2.1-channel design and driven by audiophile class D amplifiers. Also included is a built-in USB port for wired streaming or syncing from a PC to an iPod/iPhone.
