A Lunch Community for Geeks and Nerds

Very nice sound, and build quality but a little too expensive.

Here's the short and sweet(!) review of this great speaker. The build quality of the Zeppelin Mini is terrific - black and stainless steel silver and very sleek. It looks like art piece on your bedside or living room table. It also sounds great, the best reproduction I've heard from a speaker this size for an MP3 player. It can fill a medium sized room very nicely,like a bedroom, but may be found lacking if you put it in a large living room. However, given the performance of the original Zeppelin which was much bigger, longer, and football shaped, this Mini version lacks the power. Some compromises were made to the speaker design to get it down to a smaller size, which diminished the punch the speaker puts out. Therefore, the price point seems little high to me given there are many systems which are just a notch below this sound at half the price.

I would still buy this Zeppelin Mini over the Bose Sound Dock which is at a similar price point. I do wish they had not compromised on the power in the new design.

Best-in-Class Sound
A combination of powerful DSP (Digital Sound Processing) and Bowers & Wilkins core acoustics approach, ensure that Zeppelin Mini will have best-in-class sound performance.

Digital Signal Processing
Even the greatest orchestra needs a conductor to ensure the parts are working together as they should. DSP cleverly optimizes the response of the speaker's drive units, adjusting the balance, depending on the signal. Music sounds wonderfully rich and detailed, no matter how loud you play it.
