Default B&Ws Zeppelin is named Best of Innovations 2008 Design and Engineering Award Winner

North Reading, MA—November 13, 2007— Britain’s Bowers & Wilkins, recognized worldwide as the leading manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers for home audio and home-theater systems, today announced that the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®) has selected Bowers & Wilkins as an International CES Best of Innovations 2008 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for Zeppelin. The Best of Innovations awards are given to the most highly honored products in each of the 31 product categories within the Innovations Designs and Engineering Awards. Products entered in the prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics.

The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin is a one-piece amplified speaker system and docking station that transforms an iPod into an astonishingly capable yet highly compact stereo music system.

Barely two feet wide, with a dramatic, tapered shape and beautifully finished in polished stainless steel, Zeppelin sets a new benchmark for both audio fidelity and appearance in this rapidly growing field. Certified as “Made For iPod®” by Apple and with its form created by international award-winning industrial designers Native Design Ltd. of London, Zeppelin offers the ideal music system for office, bedroom, kitchen, or a second home.

“Being honored with the Best of Innovations Award is extremely gratifying,” says Bowers & Wilkins’ Executive V.P. Business Development, Evert Huizing. “We designed Zeppelin to change the way consumers listen to their iPods……to hear very possibly for the first time a true high-end sonic experience. In the 3-½ months since its introduction, Zeppelin has enjoyed rave reviews and has set new benchmarks for its audio performance and appearance. We are honored that Zeppelin has been recognized as best in its class by the Consumer Electronics Association.”

Zeppelin is presently available, at select Apple Stores nationwide and online (http://store.apple.com), at a manufacturer’s suggested price of $599.00.

Default Re: B&Ws QUESTION HELP on the 686

I have a set of 686 as my rear speakers, my front set are Bose 6.1 and a Bose center as is one of my 2 subs , my mid-channels are Bose acoustimass 2 cubes and that sub. Should i move the 686 B & W up to the front or leave them in the back , I was told by the sales rep to leave them as the back ? I do hear more out of them then any of the bose , i was going to move the older Bose 6.1 to the back but they sound so good and are broken in just right. I also have a set of older Bose 301 , i call them " The Real Deal " as i do with the 6.1 , they are the studio model ones and not those cheap Best Buys or k-mart type junk . So the question is Should i move the B&Ws up front , any ideas ?
